America's #1 Uranium Producer
Cameco Resources is America's largest uranium producer. Our mines in Wyoming and Nebraska provide more than half of America's domestically produced uranium used to generate clean-air electricity at nuclear power plants.
We use the environmentally friendly in situ process of mining. Uranium is produced through wellfields, rather than with open pits or underground shafts. There are no tailings 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 done mining, we restore the water and reclaim the land to pre-mining conditions.
