RAWLINS, Wyo. • Wyoming's newest uranium mine is up and running.
Littleton, Colo.-based Ur-Energy Inc. announced Tuesday that production at its Lost Creek mine in southwestern Wyoming began Friday after it received a final approval from the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
The mine has been in the works for eight years. The opening comes three months after Cheyenne-based Cameco Resources opened the North Butte uranium mine in Campbell County.
