Cameco Resources owns the largest uranium production facilities in the US, based on resources and licensed production capacity.

We use an environmentally friendly in situ process for mining. Uranium is produced through wellfields, rather than with open pits or underground shafts. There are no tailings dams or waste rock.

We operate only in areas where the natural groundwater is unsuitable for drinking purposes. Water is continually recycled and carefully monitored by the company. When mining is complete, we restore the water and reclaim the land to pre-mining conditions.
