This industry profile presents the results of the EPA's research into the domestic uranium mining industry and is one of a series of profiles of major mining industry sectors. This report briefly characterizes the geology of uranium ores and the economics of the industry. Following this discussion is a review of uranium extraction and beneficiation methods; this section provides the context for description of wastes and materials managed by the industry, as well as a discussion of the potential environmental effects that may result from uranium extraction and beneficiation. The report concludes with a description of regulatory programs that apply to the uranium mining industry as implemented by EPA, Federal land management agencies, and selected states. Appendices include summaries of superfund national priorities list (NPL) sites related to the extraction and beneficiation of uranium, an acronym list, and the groundwater standards for remedial actions at inactive uranium processing sites (60 Federal Register 2854, January 11, 1995).
