These Late Proterozoic ages
span from 1000 - 1100 Ma (Karunjhar grey granite) to 700-800 Ma (pink and other granites).
In reporting the La Rocque Lake discovery, Cameco noted that the high-grade uranium deposits of the Athabasca Basin are typically associated with the erosional boundary, or unconformity, between graphite-bearing metamorphic rocks of early Proterozoic age
and middle Proterozoic sandstones.
These deposits, which are of Late Proterozoic age
, contain 5 Mt with up to 25% [P.
Regional mapping undertaken by BRGM in 1986 identified a NE-SW trending package of Archaean to Proterozoic age
quartzitic metasediment, gneiss and amphibolite, as well as numerous itabirite units containing millimetre to centimetre thick bands of magnetite.
