Uranium mining may return

Brief by Central Staff

Mining – March 1997 – Colorado Central Magazine

A hitherto remote part of Central Colorado could see both development and mining as a result of the sale of a 10,000-acre ranch.

The ranch, in the Tallahassee Creek area south of Florissant, had belonged to Cyprus Minerals, a corporate ancestor of today’s Cyprus-Amax, and in the late 1970s, Cyprus planned a big uranium mine there — the Hansen Project.
