Uranium Night at PDAC Raises $10,000 for Charity

At this year’s Uranium Night at the Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada (PDAC) convention, the event's sponsors secured a $10,000 donation for the charity Haven Family Connections.

With the uranium sector having its hottest season in years, there was much to celebrate at the event, which was held on March 4 at the Lucky Clover Irish Pub in Toronto. Early in the year, the uranium spot price broke through the US$100 per pound level for the first time since 2007, rising to a 16 year high of US$106 as demand continued to outpace supply.

Although the price has since pulled back to the US$90 level, industry experts still predict a bright future for the energy commodity as countries around the world pursue nuclear power as a strategy for meeting clean energy goals.

No surprise then that attendees' faces were glowing at Uranium Night — and so were the drinks.

Radiating positive vibes, more than 500 attendees — including industry insiders, investors, brokers and analysts — enjoyed creative cocktails with names such as "Blue Reactor," "Yellowcake" and "Nuclear Negroni."
