The Effect of Increasing Aboriginal Educational Attainment on the Labour Force, Output and the Fiscal Balance

On May 21, 2009, the CSLS released a research report “The Effect of Increasing Aboriginal Educational Attainment on the Labour Force, Output and the Fiscal Balance”. This report examines the potential economic gains of increased Aboriginal education, as well as the fiscal implications of increased education and improved Aboriginal social well-being for Canadian governments to 2026. Most notably, it conludes that if the Aboriginal population were to attain complete economic and social parity with the non-Aboriginal population, Canadian governments would improve their balance sheets by nearly $12 billion in 2026 alone. The report is now available in the CSLS Research Reports section of the website.

Kodiak Intercepts Large Altered and Uranium Mineralized Zone with Multiple Drill Holes at West Millennium

NEWS RELEASE
TSX.V KXL

Vancouver, British Columbia, May 11, 2009. Kodiak Exploration Ltd. is pleased to report that drilling at its 213 square kilometre West Millennium uranium project in the Athabasca Basin of northern Saskatchewan has defined a very large and significant zone of highly altered and uranium mineralized (up to 0.13 % U3O8) basin fill sediment and underlying basement rock that extends for over 14 kilometres along strike and remains open. Kodiak completed five drill holes testing structural and stratigraphic EM conductors extending from an historic Cameco drill hole on the property. Four of the five drill holes define a central 3 kilometre long zone of highly altered basement graphitic pelite associated with highly anomalous uranium mineralization (> 0.13 % U3O8) at the unconformity. Kodiak will use these drill results to vector into zones believed to host higher grade uranium mineralization within this highly altered and strongly mineralized structural corridor. Planning for the next phase exploration is already underway. Highlights of the drilling are summarized below:
