1Uranium ore "Fed to Mills" in any year can include: ore mined and shipped to a mill during the same year, ore that was mined during a prior year and later shipped from mine-site stockpiles, and/or ore obtained from drawdowns of stockpiles maintained at a mill site.
2Includes for various years uranium from mill cleanup, mine water, tailings water, and other materials.
3Sales of U.S-origin uranium only.
Notes: The 2003 annual amounts were estimated by rounding to the nearest 200,000 pounds to avoid disclosure of individual company data. Totals may not equal sum of components because of independent rounding.
