The Aberdeen Uranium Project

Forum staked over 95,000 hectares of highly prospective land formerly held by Cameco Corp. adjacent to Orano Canada's 133-million-pound Kiggavik* uranium deposit in 2021. During Cameco's 8-year exploration program from 2005 to 2012 culminating in 36,000 metres of drilling, two significant deposits- Tatiggaq and Qavvik and 20 other high priority exploration targets were identified. In 2023, Forum drilled four holes into the Tatiggaq deposit and intersected 2.25% U3O8 over 11.1 metres, 1.01% over 6.2 metres and 0.40% over 12.8 metres in three holes. Forum is currently drilling on the Tatiggaq deposit located five kilometres west of two of Orano's largest deposits on the Kiggavik project containing 93 million pounds uranium*.
