In-Situ Recovery of Uranium

In-Situ Recovery of Uranium

In the 2009 General Session, the Legislature of the State of Wyoming appropriated $1.6 million to the University of Wyoming School of Energy Resources (SER) for activities related to the development of uranium through in-situ recovery (ISRU) in Wyoming. SER has used that appropriation toward the following outreach and research activities:

  • September 22, 2009 - Uranium Extraction Workshop, Cheyenne, WY
  • October 2009 - Research Priorities for In-Situ Uranium Recovery in Wyoming - report of findings
  • Public Opinion in Wyoming about In-Situ Uranium Recovery, WYSAC, (2010). Wyoming Survey and Analysis Center, University of Wyoming
  • August 4, 2010 - The Future of Uranium Production in Wyoming - A Public Forum on In-Situ Recovery, Laramie, WY
  • Analysis of Remediation Strategies for Radionuclide-Contaminated Soils in Uranium Mining - graduate student research project in progress.
  • In-Situ Recovery of Uranium Research Program


In-Situ Recovery of Uranium Research Program

In 2011, SER developed a competitive research program from the ISRU appropriation focused on optimizing the economic recovery of uranium through ground water restoration and research on waste water management.  In 2011 and 2012, SER funded a total of seven research projects related to aquifer restoration, groundwater treatment, identification of uranium deposits and risk assessment modeling.  All projects will reach completion in 2015.  Final executive summary reports for completed projects can be found below:


On April 21, 2015, SER hosted the In-Situ Recovery of Uranium Research Symposium, to provide a forum for researchers funded through the ISRU program to present the results of their work to the public.  More information, including symposium agenda and materials, and videos of presentations, can be found here.
