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.
