Fourth-quarter 2020

EIA could not publicly release data for U.S. production of uranium concentrate (U3O8) in the fourth 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 fourth quarter of 2020, six U.S. uranium facilities produced uranium, one more than in the third quarter of 2020. This does not mean six 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.
