Sept 12 (Reuters) - Canadian uranium producer Cameco Corp and the union for 535 workers at the world's largest uranium mine have agreed to a tentative deal ending a nearly two-week lockout, an official with United Steelworkers said on Friday.

Mike Pulak, a staff representative for United Steelworkers, said workers would begin returning to the McArthur River, Saskatchewan mine and Key Lake mill as early as Friday.

The mine and mill have been shut since Cameco locked out workers Aug. 30. (Reporting by Rod Nickel in Winnipeg, Manitoba; Editing by Chizu Nomiyama)
