EIA could not publicly release data for U.S. production of uranium concentrate (U3O8) in the second quarter of 2021. Domestic uranium production has declined considerably in recent years, and activity did not reach a threshold where a specific production figure could be published without violating the protections that EIA has committed to provide.
During the second quarter of 2021, three U.S. uranium facilities produced uranium, the same number as in the first quarter of 2021. This does not mean three facilities were actively operating and producing material during the quarter. It is a count of any facility that packaged material during the quarter though they may not be in active commercial (injecting solution and drying material) operation at the time.
