Other U.S. Projects
Lost Soldier Project – Great Divide Basin, Wyoming
Acquired in 2005, the Lost Soldier project is located approximately 14 miles (22.5 kilometers) to the northeast of the Lost Creek Project. Lost Soldier has over 3,700 historic drill holes defining 14 mineralized sandstone units. We maintain 143 unpatented mining claims at Lost Soldier, totaling approximately 2,710 mineral acres. We anticipate that further technical work on Lost Soldier will continue to be completed as corporate priorities are determined for the exploration and development of the Lost Creek Property and Shirley Basin, and funding may be allocated to the Lost Soldier project.
Lucky Mc Mine Site - Gas Hills Mine District, Wyoming
As a part of the Pathfinder acquisition in December 2013, we now own the Lucky Mc mine site in the Gas Hills mining district of Wyoming, from which Pathfinder and its predecessors historically produced more than 46.7 million pounds of uranium, primarily from the 1960s through the 1990s. Pathfinder’s predecessors included COGEMA, Lucky Mc Uranium Corporation, and Utah Construction/Utah International.
Lucky Mc conventional mine operations were suspended in the 1990s due to low uranium pricing, and facility reclamation was substantially completed. We assumed the remaining reclamation responsibilities including financial surety for reclamation, at the Lucky Mc mine site. The Lucky Mc tailings site was fully reclaimed and has been transferred to the U.S. Department of Energy. Therefore, we assumed no obligations with respect to the NRC License at the Lucky Mc tailings site, which were assumed by the AREVA-group seller upon closing. We do not have plans for the further exploration or development of the Lucky Mac Property during 2016.
