Lakeland’s new Athabasca Basin blog brings a number of perspectives to uranium exploration and nuclear energy
by Greg Klein | May 5, 2014
The uranium space continues to excite attention thanks to optimistic long-term demand forecasts and northern Saskatchewan’s hot area play. But informed investors have to consider numerous issues ranging from geology to geo-politics. A distinctive, possibly unique new online source of information comes from the Athabasca Basin blog.
Part of Lakeland Resources’ (TSXV:LK) revamped website, the blog will offer a range of perspectives, says company director Ryan Fletcher. “It’s for the board, the management team, the advisers and investor relations—whoever wants to contribute. Everyone will come at it from a different angle. For example Neil McCallum might want to explain a geological topic in layman’s terms.”
One of the first contributions comes from Lakeland adviser Canon Bryan. Clear and insightful, his inaugural post notes that while China and India continue to lead the world in uranium demand, 18 non-nuclear countries are planning or proposing nuclear energy.
His insight comes partly from having held senior positions in several private and public companies including Texas miner Uranium Energy Corp NYSE MKT:UEC, which he co-founded.
“Most of the topics I’ll be writing about are related to the macro-economic market conditions of the nuclear industry, as well as the supply chain of the uranium and nuclear fuel sector,” Bryan says.
