A new uranium mine may call Campbell County home in 2015. Colorado-based AUC, an affiliate with Bayswater Uranium, is proposing the 6,000 acre Reno Creek project.
The mine would operate for 20 years of about 1.5 million pounds per year.
AUC claims the mine, located 12 miles west of Wright, would bring around $90 million to Wyoming through various mineral taxes. The mine is expected to employ 75 full time workers with an annual payroll over $5 million per year.
