U.S. agency submits uranium import probe to White House


U.S. agency submits uranium import probe to White HouseThe U.S. Commerce Department has submitted to the White House the results of a national security investigation into uranium imports, a spokesman for the department said on Monday. The "Section 232" probe was prompted by a petition filed by two U.S. uranium mining companies, Ur-Energy Inc and Energy Fuels Inc, complaining that subsidized foreign competitors, including Russia and Kazakhstan, have caused them to cut capacity and lay off workers. The Commerce Department declined to discuss the recommendations because they are confidential.
