Strata given key approval for low-pH operations


April 23, 2020

Strata Energy, Inc. (Strata) has announced that the company has received final Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality (WDEQ) approval to fully implement low-pH uranium recovery methods at the Ross ISR Uranium Mine north of Moorcroft.

The WDEQ has approved Strata’s interim restoration report from the low-pH field restoration demonstration conducted in one of the Ross wellfields during 2019. This latest WDEQ decision concludes the final phase of the stepwise implementation approach outlined in the amendments to Strata’s Permit to Mine and Source Materials License granted by WDEQ in late 2018.

Strata was required to accomplish all four stages of the Implementation Plan to commence full low-pH operations. Commencement of low-pH operations at Ross remains subject to improvement in uranium market and additional project optimization and de-risking.
