    Among the Fission Energy assets being acquired by Denison (DNN +3.4%) is a 60% stake in the Waterbury Lake uranium project, part of a deposit attached to Rio Tinto’s (RIO -1.9%) Roughrider deposit - which Cantor Fitzgerald says "ties a neat bow on top of Denison for a potential takeout offer" from RIO. The analyst also considers Cameco (CCJ -1.2%) a potential source of a competing offer for Fission.

    BHP continues to play defense, selling its Australian uranium assets to Cameco (CCJ) for $430M. "We can't pursue all of the growth operations that are before us," says a BHP spokesman. Cameco, on the other hand, has a more optimistic outlook for uranium in the wake of Fukushima than does BHP. (PR)
