Cameco Corp. (TSX: CCO, NYSE: CCJ) is the world's largest publicly traded uranium company, based in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. It was formed in 1988 by the merger and privatization of two crown corporations: the federal owned Eldorado Mining and Refining Limited (known better as Eldorado Nuclear later on) and Saskatchewan-based Saskatchewan Mining Development Corp (SMDC).

Cameco operates several uranium mines in North America and Kazakhstan, including McArthur River, the world's largest high grade uranium deposit and mine, and Cigar Lake, the world's largest undeveloped high grade uranium deposit, both in Saskatchewan. In the United States, Cameco operates uranium mines in the states of Nebraska and Wyoming through its US subsidiary Power Resources Inc. A uranium refinery and a uranium conversion facility are both located in Ontario.

Cameco spun off its gold mining operations in Kyrgyzstan, Mongolia and the USA to a newly formed public company, Centerra Gold, in 2004; Cameco currently owns approx. 53% of Centerra's shares.
