Uranerz Energy said that the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has completed the final Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (SEIS) for the company's Nichols Ranch ISR uranium project.

Earlier, the NRC has determined that there are no major environmental impacts that will preclude licensing the Nichols Ranch uranium recovery project proposed for Johnson and Campbell counties in Wyoming.

Uranerz CEO & president Glenn Catchpole said that the completion of this favorable SEIS, a required step in the NRC licensing process, marks a very substantial milestone achieved by the company.

"Uranerz can now focus on moving into the construction phase of the Nichols Ranch ISR uranium project," Catchpole said.
