Most US uranium-producing states are 'agreement states' vis a vis the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) and have authority to issue permits and regulate uranium mining and milling. The NRC's role is then minimal. In February Wyoming, the major uranium production state, passed legislation to make it an agreement state, along with all the other uranium-producing . The subsequent mining boom led to the creation of thousands of mines; 92% of all western mines were located on the Colorado Plateau because of regional resources. [9] The Navajo Nation encompasses portions of Arizona, New Mexico, and Utah, and their reservation was a key area for uranium mining.

This initiated a mining “boom” on the Colorado Plateau in New Mexico, Utah, Colorado, and Arizona that replaced a more limited mining industry centered first on radium and then vanadium, which are found in the same easy-to-mine, soft sandstone ore, 13 The US government remained, by law, the sole purchaser of uranium in the United States.

Elevated uranium miner person-years of life lost (PYLL) were calculated from the most recent study of the Colorado Plateau Cited by: 1. The PEA is based on a random room and pillar mining method as was previously employed within the project area and in general through the Colorado Plateau.

The characteristics of the Slick Rock mineral deposits are compatible with this method in that mineralization is generally tabular with some moderate rolls, low to moderate dip, and exhibit. The Salt Wash uranium vanadium deposits are usually thinner than the mining height needed for personnel and equipment access.

Therefore, the ore is mined by a split-shooting method. The split-shooting mining method involves assessing each face as the stopes advance by the mine geologist, engineer, mine foreman, or experienced lead-miner.
