The Canyon Mine is a fully-permitted and partially-developed uranium mine located in northern Arizona approximately 6 miles southeast of Tusayan, 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. Forest Service. The mine was approved by the Forest Service and partially developed in the late 1980’s. There is significant existing infrastructure at the site, including a head-frame, hoist and a partially sunk shaft. There are approximately 1,629,000 lbs. of U3O8 at Canyon, contained in 82,800 tons of inferred resource at an average grade of 0.98% U3O8.
In 2015, the Company re-commenced development activities at the Canyon mine and shaft sinking is expected to resume during Q4-2015.
