- The combined operations at Smith Ranch (including the North Butte satellite mine) and Highland form the largest uranium production facility in the United States.
- Cameco operates both ISO 14001 certified Wyoming locations, which opened in 1975 and 1972 respectively, and uses the environment-friendly in situ recovery mining method.
- The Smith Ranch central plant currently processes all of the uranium while the Highland mill is idle.
Q2 2017 Update
Production at Smith Ranch-Highland was 67% lower for the quarter and in the first six months compared to the same periods in 2016, as a result of the decision to curtail production and defer all wellfield development at our US operations. Production is expected to continue trending down as the head grade decreases.
