Overview - world location
  open pit
Langer Heinrich is a conventional open pit uranium mine located in the Republic of Namibia in southern Africa. The mine site is within the Erongo Region, 180km west of the national capital, Windhoek and 80 km east of the major deepwater seaport at Walvis Bay, a well established city and the main sea port of Namibia, and the coastal town of Swakopmund.

The deposit was discovered in 1973 and the mine was officially opened on March 15th, 2007. Currently, a proven and probable reserve base of 24.5 million tonnes at a grade of 0.07% U3O8 gives the mine a 27 year life with the potential for extension of the reserves and minelife given favourable surrounding geology.

...first new uranium mine and mill in 25 years.
The mining operation is designed to produce 1,180 tonnes per year of uranium oxide concentrate from 1.5 million tonnes of calcrete associated ores by ore beneficiation, alkaline leaching, counter-current decantation, ion exchange, precipitation, and calcining.
