Company mentioned: Western Uranium & Vanadium Corp. (WUC:CSE; WSTRF:OTCQX)
In 2014, when uranium prices were hitting rock bottom, Western Uranium & Vanadium, in which CEO George Glasier owns a governing share, purchased a historically lucrative portfolio of mining properties in Colorado and Utah. The flagship property of the deal is the fully permitted Sunday Mining Complex—composed of five separate, fully permitted and developed mines: the Sunday, Carnation, Saint Jude, West Sunday and Topaz mines.
Glasier told Streetwise Reports, "The Sunday Complex mines are ready to go into production. The infrastructure is in place, so there are almost no capital costs to get going. We anticipate low production costs. Each of the mines is accessible by a paved highway. Each has electric power, office, storage and shop infrastructure, and, best of all, extensive underground haulage development served by vent shafts with exhaust fans."
