The BLM's decision to approve the La Sal Mine Complex (Complex (Pandora, La Sal, Beaver Shaft and Snowball mines)  Plan of Operations Modification authorizes Energy Fuels to re-configure and expand the development rock area (DRA) at the Pandora Mine. The decision also consolidates two BLM plans of operation for the four mines, authorizing expanded operations in phases, resulting in 38 and 24 acres of surface disturbance on BLM and USFS lands, respectively. Projected ore production would be up to 267,000 tons annually over the expected 20-year mine life.

The La Sal Mines Complex is near the town of La Sal in San Juan County, Utah.
