VANCOUVER - Formation Metals Inc. (TSXV:FCO) says a $5-million budget has been approved for the 2010 exploration program at the Virgin River uranium project in northern Saskatchewan.
The project is a joint venture between Cameco Corp. (TSX:CCO), which is the operator, as well as Areva Resources Canada Inc. and Coronation Mines, a wholly owned subsidiary of Formation.
Coronation has a right to increase its ownership in the project to 10 per cent, under certain circumstances. It currently has a two per cent ownership stake.
