Company To Re-open Mill
Laramie, Wy – S-X-R Uranium of Canada will spend 110 million dollars to become a Uranium player in Wyoming. The company says it will purchase the Rio Tinto Sweetwater Uranium Mill near Rawlins and the Green Mountain properties the company also owns. S-X-R says it will try and reopen the mill by 2009. Wyoming Mining Association Director Marion Loomis says the purchase is interesting. He says the community of Rawlins will likely see an economic boost from the mill reopening.
Company C-E-O Neal Froneman says Wyoming's attitude about Uranium mining is probably the best you will find in the United States.
