Environmental Coordinator

Saskatoon - Saskatchewan (SK),

Denison Mines

Job Description:

OUR COMPANY:

Denison Mines Corp. (“Denison”) is a uranium exploration and development company with interests focused in the Athabasca Basin region of northern Saskatchewan. Denison is also engaged in mine decommissioning and environmental services through its Denison Environmental Services division and is the manager of Uranium Participation Corp., a publicly traded company which invests in uranium oxide and uranium hexafluoride.

On September 24, 2018 Denison announced the Prefeasibility Study (PFS) for the Wheeler River Project. The PFS incorporates new and innovative approaches to mining in the Athabasca Basin by adoption of In-situ Recovery (ISR) techniques for the high-grade Phoenix uranium deposit. The selection of ISR mining for the Phoenix deposit is a potentially defining moment for Denison as we work to bring the world’s lowest cost uranium mining method to the jurisdiction hosting the world’s highest-grade uranium deposits. The result is a truly exciting project that has the potential to be the lowest cost uranium mining operation in the world and one of the most environmentally friendly mining operations globally.

On June 3, 2019 Denison announced the initiation of the environmental impact assessment (EIA) process for the Wheeler River Project. A joint federal-provincial EIA will be conducted. A successful EIA process is critical to securing the approvals necessary to develop and operate a mine in Canada.

Denison is building the Wheeler project development team and is looking to attract top candidates who want to be a part of our ambitious development story.

This role is being offered as a 6-month temporary position with the potential to extend to 1 year. All applicants must be eligible to work in Canada. Denison offers a competitive compensation and Benefits Package, including Health and Dental coverage, Life insurance, Employee Assistance program, Bonus program and a Retirement Savings plan.
