Uranerz Energy Corporation reports that it has began preparation of environmental permit and license applications for its planned third ISR uranium mining unit, Powder River Basin of Wyoming.

The Company’s first two mining units, the Nichols Ranch Unit and the Hank Unit, together make up the Nichols Ranch ISR Project, which is currently in the advanced permitting and licensing stage. The Nichols Ranch ISR Project applications were submitted in December 2007 to both the state and federal regulatory agencies (Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality and the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission, respectively). The NRC issued the draft supplemental environmental impact statement for the Nichols Ranch ISR Project in December 2009.

Glenda Thomas, Uranerz GM of Wyoming Production says:

“We are very pleased with the progress of our Powder River Basin projects and view the planned Jane Dough Unit as an integral step towards expanded Wyoming uranium production that can take advantage of the reserve capacity we are licensing at the Nichols Ranch central processing plant.”
