Beaverlodge

Beaverlodge Decommissioned Property

Beaverlodge Mine & Mill (1983)

The Beaverlodge uranium mine and mill produced uranium in northern Saskatchewan for 30 years, from 1952 to 1982. From 1982 to 1985 it was decommissioned and reclaimed to standards approved by federal and provincial regulators.

Beaverlodge was the first Canadian uranium mining operation to be formally decommissioned. Ongoing monitoring of the decommissioned facilities was part of the original decommissioning plan.
