Energy Fuels Inc. (Lakewood, Colo.; www.energyfuels.com) has been granted a radioactive materials license by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment for the first uranium mill to be built in the U.S. in 30 years. Energy Fuels says the approval of the license is “the most significant hurdle” to be passed before it builds the Piñon Ridge Mill near Naturita, Colo. The...
