VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Nov. 16, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Senator Minerals Inc. (TSXV:SNR) (OTC:SNRAF) (Frankfurt:T1KA) (“Senator” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that, in light of the recent decision by Cameco Corporation to temporarily “suspending production” at the McArthur River mine, the Company is looking to expand its focus to the acquisition of additional advanced exploration projects and established deposits.  The suspension at the McArthur River Mine, the world’s largest operating uranium mine accounting for about 10% of global production, represents an opportunity for further strategic acquisitions in the sector at an opportune time in the market.  The McArthur River Mine and Key Lake Mill complex are collectively the world’s largest uranium operation and a shutdown of this magnitude will likely cause upward volatility in both the spot and long-term price of this globally essential commodity.

Given the Company’s recent results in the field, the board of directors remains firmly committed to the exploration of its highly prospective projects in the Athabasca Basin, the most productive uranium-producing region in the world.  The move to expand its acquisition focus is a direct response to the removal of an estimated 17,000,000 pounds of uranium of annual production from the supply chain.
