From the Fort Collins Coloradoan (Bobby Magill):

The British Columbia-based company now estimates it will be able to recover more than 12.6 million pounds of uranium, up from the 11.5 million pounds it reported last summer, according to a technical report filed in February with the Canadian government. The higher uranium resources estimate comes after the company purchased more than 3,500 acres from two local landowners last summer, said Powertech President Richard Clement. “Anytime you have an increase in size of your resource, you increase the economic value of your prop-erty,” Clement said Monday. “It becomes that much more viable and capable of being developed.”
