Saskatchewan Mine Surface Lease Agreements - Northern Benefits Summary

The northern half of Saskatchewan, a land of lakes and forests, is home to about 37,000 people who are mostly of Cree, Dené and Métis heritage.

Mining offers job opportunities for many residents of small communities in the north. There are seven mine/mill operations in the region. Uranium operations include the McArthur River mine, Key Lake mill, Rabbit Lake mine/mill, Cigar Lake mine and McClean Lake mill. The two gold operations are the Seabee gold mine and La Ronge Gold project (operations suspended at the latter in 2014). These sites employ over 3,400 people. Most workers fly in for a work rotation of one-weekin/one-week-out. They usually work 11-hour shifts each day.
