Cameco Corporation powers one of every 23 homes in the US and one of every 10 in Canada. Their presence in the North American energy market has been significant over the past 30-plus years, providing a secure source of emissions-free energy in both countries.
Cameco energizing the world with clean-air nuclear power

Imagine you’re standing on the street in front of your house.

If you live in the United States, your home is one of approximately 138 million households in the country. And of those 138 million households, one out of every 23 is powered by uranium supplied by Cameco.

Imagine that same scenario but now you’re in Canada, where there are over 14 million households and Cameco’s uranium powers one in every 10 homes.

Cameco’s presence in the North American energy market has been significant over the past 30-plus years, providing a secure source of emissions-free energy in both countries. The company has been a long-time producer, supplier, employer and investor on both sides of the border, and has supplied uranium to every owner/operator of a nuclear power plant in the United States and Canada.

Cameco is the largest uranium producer in Canada, with four operations in the Athabasca Basin of northern Saskatchewan, home to the world’s most prolific uranium deposits. Cigar Lake and McArthur River are the world’s largest high-grade uranium mines, with ore grades over 100 times the global average. Key Lake is world’s largest uranium mill, outputting more than 500 million pounds of uranium concentrate since 1983. First opened in 1974, the Rabbit Lake mine and mill has been the world’s longest running uranium operation.

Further east in the province of Ontario, Cameco’s prominent role in the nuclear energy sector continues with value-added uranium refining, conversion and fuel fabrication facilities in the communities of Blind River, Port Hope and Cobourg.

South of the border, Cameco’s wholly-owned subsidiary, Cameco Resources, has been the largest uranium producer in the United States over the past 20 years. During that time, its Smith Ranch-Highland operations in Wyoming and Crow Butte operations in Nebraska have generated 40 million pounds of uranium concentrate – more than any other American producer.

Cameco Resources’ investments in its Wyoming and Nebraska operations have totalled more than $1 billion and provided more than $250 million in salaries over the last two decades. These investments have continued with Cameco’s part ownership of Global Laser Enrichment (GLE), a partnership aimed at developing and constructing a next-generation uranium enrichment facility in the United States.

Another key aspect of Cameco’s North American footprint has been its support for nuclear security and non-proliferation initiatives. This includes serving as a commercial partner in the U.S. government’s historic “Megatons to Megawatts” program, in which bomb-grade uranium from dismantled Russian nuclear warheads was recycled into low enriched uranium used to produce fuel for American nuclear power plants. Under this initiative, some 20,000 Russian weapons were dismantled and converted to fuel for American nuclear reactors.

As a leading corporate citizen, social responsibility has always been a core value to Cameco. Its employees are committed to being active and supportive members of the states, provinces and communities in which they live and work. Cameco’s philanthropic community investment activities are focused on local organizations and programs that protect natural resources, educate children and make our communities safe and wonderful places to raise families.

The company is also proud to be one of Canada’s largest industrial employers of Indigenous people and a leading partner of Indigenous-owned businesses. In recent years, Cameco has been recognized as one of Canada’s Best Diversity Employers and Most Sustainable Companies and a five-time recipient of the Canadian Council for Aboriginal Business’s gold-level certification for Progressive Aboriginal Relations.

With climate change concerns becoming increasingly prevalent in North America and beyond, Cameco is poised to continue making a difference and energizing the world with clean-air nuclear power. Learn more at
