Title

A Turbulent Year For US Uranium Mining

Summary

This article will recap the state of the US uranium mining industry beginning with the January 2019 232 petition filed by two US uranium producers, UR-Energy and Energy Fuels Resources, requesting an import quota, and the subsequent rejection of the quota by President Trump. The article analyzes national security issues and economic implications of heavy reliance on imported uranium from Russia and the "working group" actions to address the current state of domestic nuclear fuel production.
