The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission has had its Independent Environmental Monitoring Program look at the closed Cluff Lake Uranium Mine and the operational McClean Lake facility. Orano Canada, formerly AREVA resources, is licensed to operate both sites. The commission says it has analysed the 2017 sampling results from Cluff Lake and updated 2016 results from McClean Lake. The commission says that the public, Indigenous, communities, and the environment around these sites are protected and that there are no expected health impacts. Both sites are located in the Athabasca Basin region of Northern Saskatchewan. The McClean Lake site has been in operation since 1999 and includes a uranium mill and tailings management facility. The Cluff Lake facility was shut down in 2002 and consisted of a uranium mine, mill, and tailings management area. Major decommissioning activities were completed in 2006.
