Uranium Energy granted Radioactive Material License for Burke Hollow project
Uranium Energy is pleased to announce that the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality has issued the Radioactive Material License for the Burke Hollow Project, completing the last of the four major permits needed for uranium extraction. The Burke Hollow Project will be developed as part of the company's hub-and-spoke strategy, designed for low-cost in-situ recovery of uranium with final processing to occur at the nearby and fully permitted Hobson Plant. The license boundary includes 5,385 acres, encompasses multiple production areas and authorizes construction of the satellite facility. In addition to the Radioactive Material License, the Burke Hollow Project now has an 11,000 acre Mine Area permit, approved in December 2016, two disposal well permits, issued in July 2015, and the aquifer exemption, issued in March 2017.
