NYSE-American-listed Uranium Energy Corp (UEC) has appointed James Hatley, who most recently led construction of three mines at Vale’s Voisey’s Bay mine expansion, as its VP production for Canada.

"We are pleased to welcome James Hatley to our production team to develop our Canadian assets including the Roughrider project, which is an exciting catalyst for UEC in Eastern Athabasca and anchors our Canadian high-grade conventional pipeline,” said UEC president and CEO Amir Adnani.

Prior to Vale, Hatley was the senior VP of project development at NexGen Energy and consulted overseas for Saudi Aramco. 

He also spent more than 13 years with Cameco, including key leadership roles as project director and superintendent for the McArthur River expansion, Millennium project, chief mine engineer at McArthur River, and technical and project management for the Cigar Lake project. 

“Through UEC's portfolio of high-grade assets, we are poised to become the next uranium producer in the Athabasca basin. 

“The 100% owned Roughrider project will have a pivotal role in the Athabasca basin with respect to potential production and timing to UEC, our stakeholders, and the Canadian uranium industry. 

“Specifically, the tier one work by prior owner Rio Tinto in advancing the project design, community engagement, environmental assessment, and past regulatory submissions provides a solid foundation for future advancement,” commented Hatley.
