June 14, 2006 The revival of uranium prices has prompted International Uranium to announce it will reopen its American uranium and vanadium mines after a seven-year hiatus. The company said Wednesday that activity will begin immediately with initial production of 3.4 million pounds of uranium and 5.9 million pounds of vanadium in the first year. This is expected to slow to a sustained rate of 1.5 million pounds of uranium and two million pounds of vanadium. Mined ore will be stockpiled and processed at the company's White Mesa mill in southeastern Utah.
March 31, 2004 The mine is on care and maintenance and will be opened pending improvement of uranium prices.
In the first quarter/99, mining operations were discontinued due to weak market prices.
In 1998, mining was recommenced, after significant cleanout and repair.
In 1990, the mine was shut down and allowed to flood.
