Reclamation Projects in Energy Fuels Lease Tracts 19A and 20, Uranium Leasing Program
CX(s) Applied: B1.28
Location(s): Uravan, Colorado
Office(s): Legacy Management
The United States Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Legacy Management (LM) proposes to close a mine adit, a subsided vent shaft, and an open vent on DOE Lease Tract C-AM-19A, and to close one open vent on the adjacent DOE Lease Tract C-AM-20. Independent contractors associated with Energy Fuels, the leaseholder, would complete all work within an expected 2 days. DOE inherited the abandoned mine features when lease tract boundaries were reconfigured in 2007. Both tracts are in western Montrose County several miles northwest of the former town of Uravan, Colorado. Access to the mine sites would be by foot or by driving on existing dirt track roads.
