Cameco (TSX: CCO; NYSE: CCJ) announced today that its board appointed Don Kayne as a director effective January 1, 2016 until the next annual general shareholders’ meeting where he will stand for election by the shareholders with the rest of the board.

In 2014, he was appointed to the bi-national Softwood Lumber Board. Mr. Kayne is also chair of the Educating Girls of Rural China Foundation, a charitable organization that works to improve the lives of women in rural areas of western China by providing access to education.
