The Arizona One Mine is a producing uranium mine located in northern Arizona, approximately 35 miles south of the town of Fredonia, Arizona. The mine site for this high-grade “breccia pipe” deposit has less than 20 acres of total surface disturbance and is situated on land managed by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management (“BLM”). Originally approved by BLM in 1988, the Arizona One Mine has been in active production since late 2009, producing up to 300 tons of ore per day that is processed at Energy Fuels’ White Mesa Mill. Through March 2013, Arizona One had produced a total of ~97,350 tons of ore, at an average grade of 0.62% U3O8, containing ~1.2 million lbs. of U3O8.
Mining at the Arizona One mine is expected to continue through the end of 2013, after which the resources will likely have been depleted. At this point, the mine will be scheduled for reclamation.
