|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.
