Energy Fuels (NYSE American: UUUU) (TSX: EFR), a leading producer of uranium and vanadium in the United States, on Thursday announced that President Trump issued an Executive Order on Addressing the Threat to the Domestic Supply Chain from Reliance on Critical Minerals from Foreign Adversaries (the ” Order “). Energy Fuels believes the Order may be a major step toward providing tangible support and/or funding directed toward producers and processors of critical minerals. “President Trump made a strong statement last night on the importance of bringing the production of critical minerals back to the United States. In 2018, the Administration deemed 35 minerals critical to U.S. national security and the economy. For 31 of these 35 minerals, the U.S. imports more than half of our requirements. And, for 14 of these 35 minerals, the U.S. is effectively 100% dependent on imports,” Mark S. Chalmers, president and CEO of Energy Fuels, said in the news release. “These minerals are needed for aerospace, computers, cell phones, electrical generation and transmission, renewable energy systems and batteries, and advanced electronics. This is an unacceptable situation for a superpower like the United States, and we applaud President Trump for taking bold action to address this critical need.”
