Dev Randhawa is the founding Chairman and CEO of Fission Uranium, which owns the high-grade, shallow-depth Triple R deposit at Patterson Lake South (PLS) in Canada’s Athabasca Basin.
Dev Randhawa received a Bachelors Degree in Business Administration with honours from Trinity Western College of Langley, British Columbia in 1983 and received his Master in Business Administration from the University of British Columbia in 1985.
Dev initially worked in the field of investment banking. He left to start his own junior mining corporation in 1996 in order to run a company that allowed him to take the long view and build something more lasting. The skills and experience that he acquired as a broker helped him to develop a great understanding of the components that allow a resource company to succeed. A great management team and a great Geo team form the core of his approach and his track record speaks for itself.
Mr. Randhawa founded Strathmore Minerals Corp. in 1996 and remained CEO until September 2008. In 2007, Dev Randhawa spun Fission Energy Corp. out of Strathmore to focus on uranium exploration in Saskatchewan. Under his leadership, Fission Energy was named a TSX Venture 50(r) Company and he remained as CEO and Chairman until the company sold its Waterbury Lake asset and a large selection of its assets to Denison Mines in 2013. Fission Uranium Corp. was spun out with the remaining Fission Energy assets as part of the agreement with Denison.
Recently, Mr. Randhawa negotiated a subscription and off take agreement with CGN Mining that, in January 2016, resulted in CGN Mining investing $82 million in Fission at a premium to the stock price.
Dev has won several industry awards in the resource sector, including: Northern Miner Magazine ‘Mining Person of the Year 2013’, EY Entrepreneur of the Year 2014 (finalist) and, as part of the Fission team, Mining Journal Excellence Award 2015 for Exploration.
