|Stage:||Highly Prospective; Drill Ready|
|Size:||24,257 Ha along the northwest edge of the Athabasca Basin|
The Maurice Bay area of Lake Athabasca is located immediately east of the Alberta-Saskatchewan provincial boundary, and is 75 km west of Uranium City. It is accessible by float or ski-equipped aircraft, barge or boat from Stony Rapids or Fort Chipewyan on Lake Athabasca, and by winter road across the Lake Athabasca ice.
|The Maurice Point Project covers the extensions of basement structures containing the Maurice Bay mineralization and the favorable Athabasca unconformity. The shallow Athabasca sandstone varies from surface to 250m depth.|
|Adjacent to the historic Maurice Bay deposit, which is part of the NW Athabasca Joint Venture , held by Forum, and its partners: NexGen, Cameco , and AREVA (now Orano).|
- Forum is primarily targeting unconformity type uranium deposits similar to the nearby Maurice Bay deposit and the Cluff Lake/Shea Creek deposits (>100 million lbs.), also located on the west side of the basin, as well as basement-hosted deposits.
Work Programs for 2019
- A number of drill targets have been identified, but future work has been deferred until market conditions improve.
- A soil sampling program located down-ice from land based gravity lows was completed during the 2017 summer field season. The soil sampling program tested for boron anomalies that may be associated with the gravity lows. A number of drill targets have been identified, but will have to wait until market conditions improve.
