Original Message Published on 1/6/2011 – “The Russians are coming to the Southwest and plan to take much of the region’s uranium home with them. The Russian government, which recently purchased the mining company Uranium One, has big designs on uranium reserves in Utah’s canyon country and has opened an office in Durango. Watchdogs are concerned that the U.S. is effectively giving away resources to foreign companies and that locally mined and milled yellowcake will soon find its way to Iran.

Last week, Atomredmetzoloto (ARMZ), a mining conglomerate owned by the Russian government, completed the purchase of Uranium One, a Canadian company. ARMZ’s parent company is Rosatom, the Russian nuclear agency, and the deal went forward in spite of objections from four members of the U.S. Congress and a U.S. Department of Treasury inquiry.

The deal gives ARMZ, operating as Uranium One, control of all of the Canadian company’s international assets, which stretch from central Asia to the central United States. Among those assets is control over more than 10,000 acres of uranium mining claims in Southeast Utah, ownership of the Utah town of Ticaboo near Lake Powell, and control of the inactive Shootaring uranium mill there.

The consolidation makes Uranium One the fifth-largest uranium producer in the world. Shortly before the transaction, the Russian company opened a regional headquarters in Bodo Park.”

“From ARMZ’s perspective, this transaction will solidify Uranium One’s position as a leading uranium supplier,” Vadim Zhivov, director general of ARMZ, announced in a company news release. The company did not respond to the Telegraph’s request for comment.

The case of Uranium One could be an especially difficult pill to swallow. First, the Russian government will be tapping the West’s uranium free of charge and likely exporting it to Europe and Asia. Second, ARMZ has acted as the source of uranium for Iran’s rogue nuclear program, meaning that yellowcake mined in Utah could find its way into reactors in Tehran.

“This is the Russian government coming in to take advantage of our resources,” Parsons said. “This will be American uranium that will be going to Russia, and it’s no secret that Russia supplies Iran with its nuclear fuel.”
