Madaouela Uranium Project

Arlit, Niger

Introduction 

The Madaouela Uranium Project is situated southeast of the mining town of Arlit, and the Marianne-Marilyn deposit is located approximately 9 km from Arlit. The land surface of the tenement forms a rectangle of less than 250 km2. 

Topography

Topographic relief in the Madaouela tenements is minimal, a few tens of meters from high to low. Areas of drilling are at approximately 430 m elevations Over much of the areas drilled, relief is less than 15 m from low ridges of sandstone outcrops to essentially flat sand covered plains.

Climate

Niger is landlocked and almost entirely located within the semi-desert belt of Western Africa. Its climate is characterized by very scarce rainfall, mostly concentrated during the summer months (July to September), and with very hot temperatures, notably at the end of spring (April to June).

Infrastructure

The proximity of the town of Arlit and Akokan are an asset for Madaouela permits. The towns have over 160,000 people supporting local mining operations with airports, drilling companies, electricity, potable water, and a hospital. Arlit is connected to the Southern part of Niger via the so-called “uranium-highway” through Agadez and Tahoua to Niamey, the Niger capital further south. A power line connects the town to the Sonichar coal-fired power station located North of Agadez.Access by plane is possible through an airstrip in Arlit and also Agadez.
