New Uranium Mine Proposed In NE Wyoming

GILLETTE, Wyo. (AP) — A Colorado-based company is proposing to start a new uranium mine in Campbell County in 2015.

Located about 12 miles west of Wright, the 6,000-acre Reno Creek project will be operating for 20 years with annual production of about 1.5 million pounds a year. It is proposed by AUC, which is a company affiliated with Bayswater Uranium.

Philip Cavender of AUC says the proposed mine is estimated to bring about $90 million to the state in various mineral taxes.

The Associated Press reports that the project will employ 75 full-time workers with an annual payroll of $5.5 million per year.
