LANDER, Wyo. (AP) - The Bureau of Land Management has given final approval for a uranium mine in Fremont County.

Cameco Resources controls the uranium deposits and has sought a permit to develop them since 2010. If built, the project would be the first uranium mine to operate in Fremont County in several decades.

The Riverton Ranger reports Cameco does not have plans to immediately begin construction on the site. Company officials say the next steps are going to be determined by the uranium market because the price of uranium is low.
