  • 10. Properties Location CanAlaska’s Uranium projects in the Athabasca Basin
  • 11. Why Explore Athabasca?
    • The Athabasca Basin hosts the world’s richest uranium mines
    • Supplier of 20% of world’s uranium
    • Unique geology, stable jurisdiction
    • High grades assures extremely profitable mining operations and weather all economic cycles
    • Rich history: Athabasca mines were profitable throughout the 1980-2001 “Nuclear Winter”
  • 12. Athabasca’s Uranium
  • 13. Athabasca Uranium Current Price (spot) $51.52 This is 7.5 X the 2001 price! Uranium Price: Staying up to meet demand
    • Long term price will reflect cost of production from average deposit
    • Athabasca deposits are strategic and profitable due to ultra high grades
  • 14. What Does a Uranium Deposit Look Like? Areva’s “Sue” Deposit ORE ZONE 20 metre fault Deposit Clay Zone
    • The uranium zones are small and rich , but the have a large alteration halo
    • DISCOVERY PROCESS:
    • Airborne Survey’s finds the halo
    • Multiple holes drilled across the target find the narrow mineralized fault zones
  • 15. “ The Model”
  • 16. Projects Athabasca Basin Arnold Fond Du Lac McTavish Black Lake Grease River Misty Camsell Helmer Moon Carswell Hodgson NE Wollaston Cree East Kasmere Poplar Cree West Key Lake Waterbury Collins Bay West McArthur
  • 17. West McArthur Project
    • Surveys are discovering new targets near rich uranium mines
    • During February and March 2010, Mitsubishi and CanAlaska completed a 6,071 m drill campaign into the alteration systems associated with these targets. Drilling continues in 2011
    • Multiple large targets are located across the project
    • Strong history of rich deposits:
        • 2003 – 436.5 million lbs. U 3 O 8 (167,897 tonnes uranium) with an average grade of 24.7% U 3 O 8 at nearby McArthur Mine
    • These deposits are orders-of-magnitude larger and richer than most other uranium deposits world-wide
  • 18. Cree East Project
    • During February and March 2010, CanAlaska drilled 14 further holes into the alteration systems associated with these targets
        • Multiple targets proved positive first drill results
    • D rilling continued throughout Summer 2010 Twenty four holes/ 9,000 metres
    • We have had 2 drills operating at Cree East, concentrating on Zones A, G and H
    • We have “closed in” on the targets of interest. Drilling will resume in January 2011
  • 19. Cree East Project
  • 20. Cree East Project Scale of known mines transposed to exploration targets at Cree East This is a large area with potential for many productive targets ZONE G
  • 21. Fond Du Lac Project CanAlaska’s drilling is discovering NEW uranium zones Fond du Lac Deposit A partnership with a local community Hole FLC 017 40.2 metres @ 0.32% U 3 O 8
  • 22. 2010 Drilling Program
    • January-May 2011 five drill projects
    • 45 planned drill holes by May 2011
    • Minimum Nov-April expenditure of $7.5 Mil. on 4 projects ($2.3 Mil. net CVV)
    • 2011 Budget est $10-15 Mil.
    • Further potential partners reviewing projects
    2011 Drilling is Spread Over Five Projects With Winter and Summer Programs Drilling 2011
  • 23. Other Projects

    • Cluff Lake : a very large land position surrounding and on the west side of the Cluff Lake Dome, just north of the new uranium deposits at Shea Creek. Airborne surveys completed and 43-101 compilation report complete
  • 27. Future Growth
    • Aggressive Exploration through:
        • Airborne EM
        • Drilling
        • Sediments/Seismic
        • Ground Resistivity
    • Focus in 2011 is drilling on our targets
        • Est. min 25,000 metres
    • Partnerships with 16 of our Projects
        • JV funding totals $42 Million on 5 of 21 projects
  • 28. Summary

    • Proven exploration team supporting Management
      • Head of exploration co-discovered Cigar Lake.. and Managed Cogema (Areva) Operations
      • Experienced uranium crews of up to 100 active in field in 2005-2010
    • Significant exploration already completed with positive results
      • Sponsorship by Mitsubishi Development Pty. Ltd./Korean Consortium
      • 6 seasons of intense target definition…. $75 million expended
      • Joint Venture funding totals $42 Million, (on 5 of 21 projects)
      • Strong First Nations involvement
  • 29. AND NOW THE OTHER SIDE OF THE MARKET FOR URANIUM SUPPLY….. MANUFACTURING AND GDP GROWTH The Athabasca uranium deposits are located in a favourable and stable regime where long-term supply of product is assured. This then backs the guarantee of modern reactor “build and supply” contracts, and strongly supports, and enhances the value, of the bids by the manufacturers of nuclear reactors. The manufacture and supply of nuclear power plants will be a major contributor to future economic growth in supply nations…..
  • 30. THERE IS GROWTH IN THE DEMAND FOR NUCLEAR REACTORS AND THIS MEANS STRONG MANUFACTURING DEMAND FOR PLANT BUILDERS
  • 31. COMPARITIVE MANUFACTURING VALUATION 2 Reactors with maintenance And with fuel US $20 Billion… France, Russia, (USA?) without fuel … Say <<<? Billion Korea, Japan, China } X 100!! US $200 Million This is the same as… Boeing 787 OR Countries building reactors will maintain a strong manufacturing base. Manufacturers with uranium supply will have larger profits, and have a bigger advantage in the market
  • 32. Properties Location CanAlaska’s Uranium projects in the Athabasca Basin of Canada provide long term uranium supply options
