  1. my Mom worked there when she was 19 years old way back when. I do have some pictures in her albums, but am having a hard time figuring out what is what, as she never wrote on the back where these pictures are from. My best guess is that of Uranium City.

  2. I’m looking for any information/records pertaining to Eddie Angus, a miner/prospector working in UC in the early 1950’s –are there any archival sources you can recommend?

    1. Hi Jason,

      I’ve heard of Eddie Angus, but I wouldn’t know anything about him or even where to get information. Have you tried the Saskatchewan Archives? (https://www.saskarchives.com/). I tried Chat GPT but nothing came up. One source worth trying, assuming you’re on Facebook, is the ‘Uranium City Friends’ Facebook group. One of the old-timers on the page might be able to help you – and may have even known Eddie Angus.

      Best of luck,

      Tim
