Third-quarter 2020

EIA could not publicly release data for U.S. production of uranium concentrate (U3O8) in the third quarter of 2020. 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 third quarter of 2020, five U.S. uranium facilities produced uranium, the same number as in the third quarter of 2020. EIA counts any facility that packages and sells material during the quarter as producing uranium though they may not be in active commercial (injecting solution and drying material) operation at the time.
