Alligator Rivers Uranium Province (ARUP), Northern Territories
The Alligator Rivers Uranium Province contains multiple uranium targets in a well-defined high-grade regional uranium bearing zone, which includes the Caramal uranium resource bearing 6.5 million pounds of uranium at a high-grade of 3,100ppm. It is nearby to key uranium deposits, Jabiluka: 349Mlb at 5,300ppm U3O8 and Ranger: past production approximately 300Mlb and Ranger 3 deeps – 96Mlb at 2,850ppm U3O8.
Comprehensive re-evaluation of the regional and local geology has enhanced our understanding of the stratigraphic and structural relationships to allow a more targeted focus.
This has highlighted a broad prospective zone running from the western Beatrice Project, through the eastern portion of the Tin Camp Creek project and into the Nabarlek North project area.
Tenements within the latter have recently been granted giving Alligator in excess of 1,140km2 of active tenure in Australia’s premier Uranium district and new exploration ground adjacent to the high grade U40 Uranium Copper Gold Prospect.
The region remains heavily under explored in comparison to the analogous Athabasca basin highlighting increased potential for world class discoveries.
