Share article on

FISSION URANIUM CORP. ("Fission" or “the Company" - http://www.commodity-tv.net/c/mid,3159,Companies_und_Projects/?v=288019) is pleased to announce that The Mining Journal, one of the mining industry’s most-read publications, has rated Fission’s PLS project as the number one undeveloped uranium project in the world. 

The Mining Journal recently evaluated the promising uranium projects not yet developed and ranked them based on criteria including resource quality, grade, location and anticipated costs. This top ranking is the latest in a string of industry awards and acclaim that includes: PDAC’s Bill Dennis Award for Prospecting Success, The Mining Journal’s Excellence Award for Exploration, Finance Monthly’s Dealmaker Award and The Northern Miner’s Mining Persons of the Year.

Dev Randhawa, CEO and Chairman, for Fission, commented

“We are delighted at this latest recognition of the quality and ongoing blue sky potential of our PLS project in Canada’s Athabasca Basin. The Mining Journal is one of the most respected publications in the industry and it’s testament to what our Management and technical team has achieved at PLS that they have ranked us as the top undeveloped uranium project in the world. With nuclear reactor numbers growing steadily, the uranium sector will reach a point at which new production will be needed urgently. As a result, Fission will continue to explore and expand the PLS project as we position ourselves for this upturn.”
