Negotiations begin for shared prosperity

A negotiation table made up of Chief and Council representatives, Elders, and subject matter experts for ERFN, along with an environmental working group, will meet regularly to learn more about Denison’s proposed Wheeler River mine and to negotiate an agreement that would then be put to a ratification vote by you, the ERFN membership.

The process will take approximately 16-months beginning late February 2021.

Watch this space for updates on the process, more information on the proposed mine and for answers to your questions.

“As a First Nation driven by self-determination, we believe this negotiation process promotes ERFN interests, creates a positive relationship with Denison, and helps to ensure new uranium mining operators offer responsible and creative paths to wealth generation for all involved, while minimizing impacts to the lands and resources.”

– Chief Jerry Bernard
