GILLETTE, Wyo. (AP) - A Colorado-based company is proposing to start a new uranium mine in Campbell County in 2015. Located about 12 miles west of Wright, the 6,000-acre Reno Creek project will be operating for 20 years with annual production of about 1.5 million pounds a year. It is proposed by AUC, which is a company affiliated with Bayswater Uranium.
Philip Cavender of AUC says the proposed mine is estimated to bring about $90 million to the state in various mineral taxes and that the project will employ 75 full-time workers with an annual payroll of $5.5 million per year.
