The mine would be located roughly 45 miles east of Riverton, and would supply the Smith Ranch-Highland production facility in Converse County.<br /><br />Cameco Resources is proposing in-situ mining for the Gas Hills project. That involves using underground chemical washing to extract the uranium.</p> Tue, 05 Nov 2013 16:15:46 +0000 Stephanie Joyce 49429 at http://wyomingpublicradio.net Uranium mine nears end of permitting process
