A uranium exploration company has found an area that seems promising for uranium mining near Baggs, in south-central Wyoming.
Crosshair Energy Corporation completed a soil survey and found additional areas with high levels of radon, which indicates uranium in the ground.
Crosshair Vice President Tom Bell says that’s good news for the company.
“Right now we have a resource that’s about five million pounds of uranium in the ground,” Bell said. “And we think that we can add a significant amount of additional pounds of uranium in this new area that we’re moving into.”
