Uranerz Energy Starts On-Site Construction at Nichols Ranch ISR Uranium Mine

Uranerz Energy has started on-site construction of its Nichols Ranch in-situ recovery (ISR) Uranium Project, which is situated in Wyoming’s Central Powder River Basin in U.S.A. The company conducted a ground-breaking function to announce the commencement of its primary ISR uranium mine construction.

These construction activities will include two key operations that include the central processing plant construction enclosing laboratory, office and maintenance buildings and installation of initial well-fields. The company has already started site preparation to build the central processing plant. It has acquired 75 environmental monitor well sites and will start the well-installation shortly. Uranerz has hired drill rigs to install the production and monitor wells and these rigs are currently moved for the commencement of operation later. It has concluded the contracts for the well-field header dwellings and for developing the roads that directing to the site and the purchase of the materials are in progress. Also, the company is performing the final production process for a 550-barrel cement silo, which should be transported to the location in mid-August.

The General Manager of the company has commented that after four years of preparation and permit of the license, design of the well-field and worker training, Uranerz has started this work phase and the company is currently recruiting additional employees for this operation.
