Uranium mine in Canada
Athabasca plateau in Saskatchewan province, Canada. Western Canada is particularly rich in uranium, with anywhere between 28 to 210 kilograms of uranium per tonne as opposed to the usual 3 grams per tonne found elsewhere. This high abundance, taken in conjunction with the difficult geological conditions and the harsh climate have made the extraction process an almost entirely automated one.
