Prospectors came and went without any significant finds along Lake Athabasca until 1937 when the town of Goldfields, Saskatchewan, was incorporated in hopes of a major gold development. The Box Mine went into production in 1939 but closed down by 1942 with the discovery of gold in Yellowknife. The discovery of pitchblende on Great Bear Lake spurred prospectors to search for uranium along the shores of Lake Athabasca in the Black Bay and Beaverlodge Lake areas. By 1952, the Ace mine came into production with a uranium separation plant soon to follow at Uranium City. The buildings that were earlier abandoned at Goldfields were moved to Uranium City, whose population soon grew to 4000. The availability of work in the mines led to an exodus of people from Fort Chipewyan in mid-century when the census population fell from 705 in 1941 to 304 by 1956. Just 30 km from Uranium City, more uranium was discovered at Gunnar. At the peak of Lake Athabasca uranium mining, there were three mines with processing facilities at Beaverlodge, Lorado and Gunnar, and scores of smaller satellite mines spread across the area. As of 2006, 40 uranium and seven gold mines had been mapped, most of which have been abandoned.
