NOTE: On February 5, 2014 and September 16, 2014, HRI requested additional time to complete its discussions with the Navajo Nation Council prior to submitting a revised license renewal application. On November 13, 2014, the NRC staff placed its review of the license renewal application in abeyance until further notice. By letter dated November 27, 2015, Uranium Resources, Inc., (URI) on behalf of its wholly owned subsidiary HRI, and Laramide Resources Ltd. (Laramide), submitted to the NRC an application requesting approval for an indirect change of control of the Crownpoint Uranium Project from URI to Laramide. The transfer was approved by the NRC on March 11, 2016. The transaction closed on January 5, 2017. License SUA-1580, Amendment #4 was issued to Laramide on February 7, 2017.

Information on Federal Register notices for receipt of the application and opportunity to request a hearing or petition to intervene can be found on the Hearing Opportunities page.
