The company also specifies that in January, 2018 two uranium mining companies from the USA — UR-Energy Inc. and Energy Fuels Inc. — have submitted the petition to the U.S. Department of Commerce with a request to establish whether considerable volumes of import of uranium are threat of national security of the USA. In July, 2018 the United States Secretary of Commerce has said that the petition has been taken cognizance and investigation with the purpose to find out whether the current volumes and circumstances of import of uranium ores and production in the USA threaten national security of the country has been begun. Investigation covers all production phases of uranium — from extraction of ore and enrichment before use in the defensive and industrial purposes. If as a result of investigation the U.S. Department of Commerce comes to a conclusion that the risk of threat to security exists, and will introduce restrictions for import, it can influence sales of the uranium delivered from Uranium One joint ventures in Kazakhstan in the market of the USA. The Willow Creek mine has been put into commercial operation on May 1, 2012. The current design capacity of the Willow Creek mine is 500 tons of uranium a year.
