• Inkai is owned 40% by Cameco and 60% by Kazatomprom, which is majority-owned by the Kazakh government.
  • Tapping into the vast uranium potential of Kazakhstan, Joint Venture Inkai LLP operates the in situ recovery mine.
  • The ISO 14001 and BSI OHSAS 18001 certified facility follows western standards for worker safety and environmental protection since it began operations in 2008. 
Production(As of December 31, 2019)


We expect total production from Inkai to be 8.3 million pounds (100% basis) in 2020.

Due to Kazatomprom’s announced plans to maintain its aggregate production reduction of 20%, an adjustment to the restructuring agreement, as described above, has been made. As a result of this adjustment, we are entitled to purchase 59.4% of JV Inkai’s planned production in 2020 which equates to 4.9 million pounds.

Our share of the profits earned by JV Inkai on the sale of its production will be included in “income from equity-accounted investees” on our consolidated statement of earnings.
