Energy Fuels Inc. Obtains Final Approval for its Hank ISR Uranium Project
Jul 21 15
Energy Fuels Inc. announced that the U.S. Bureau of Land Management has issued a Final Environmental Assessment and granted its final approval for the Plan of Operations of the company’s 100% owned Hank Unit, an in situ recovery uranium project located in Wyoming’s Powder River Basin. The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission and the Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality previously granted their approvals for the project in July 2011 and December 2010, respectively. The issuance of the EA and the approval of the Plan of Operations was the final major regulatory approval required for the Hank Unit. This approval allows the company to proceed with the development of mining facilities and related infrastructure at the Hank Unit, in the future as market conditions warrant. The Company is currently producing uranium from its 100% owned Nichols Ranch ISR Project, also located in Wyoming’s Powder River Basin. The Hank Unit is licensed to be developed in the future as a satellite operation to the Nichols Ranch Processing Plant. The Company also continues to evaluate other production options, such as connecting the Hank Unit to the Nichols Ranch ISR Project via a pipeline, depending on market, permitting, and operational considerations.
