UW School of Energy Resources Issues Request for Uranium Extraction Proposals

April 1, 2011

The School of Energy Resources (SER) at the University of Wyoming has issued a request for proposals (RFP) for research in the field of in-situ uranium extraction.

The RFP, open to academic institutions and private industry, closes May 6. All proposals will be competitively judged based on probable benefits to the state of Wyoming and the development of in-situ recovery (ISR) of uranium. The RFP can be downloaded or viewed at

The Wyoming State Legislature in 2009 appropriated $1.6 million to the SER for activities related to ISR of uranium in the state. The SER was authorized to use the funds, in part, to develop a program for uranium that focuses on optimizing the economic recovery through ground water restoration and research on waste water management, as well as developing an educational seminar about uranium and uranium extraction.

The SER has approximately $1.4 million to fund research projects. Applicants may request between $50,000-$400,000.
