Uranium In-Situ Recovery (ISR) Mining:

  • Low capital costs ($20 to $35 million)

  • Environmentally friendly (common solute is groundwater enriched with oxygen and, if needed, carbon dioxide or bicarbonate of soda)

  • Process essentially reverses the natural process by which the deposits were originally formed

  • Works very good on solution front deposits in porous & permeable sandstones (Wyoming, Texas, Kazakhstan, Australia, etc.)

  • Ideally 14 – 24 months mining, 24+ months ground water restoration and surface reclamation

  • Production cost range - $18 to $25 per pound
