Uranium Energy (NYSE American: UEC), a U.S.-based uranium mining and exploration company, has appointed Brent Berg as its new senior vice president, U.S. operations. Berg comes to his new position with more than 27 years of experience in the minerals industry; more than two decades of that has been spent in uranium production in the United States and Canada.

He also served as president of Cameco Resources, where he led the company’s U.S. uranium in-situ recovery (“ISR”) operations in Wyoming and Nebraska. While at Cameco, Berg oversaw U.S. production reaching more than 2.6 million pounds. In addition, Berg gained invaluable open pit and underground mining experience as he worked with Cameco’s Key Lake, McArthur River and Rabbit Lake operations. “Brent is a proven uranium mining professional with significant ISR production experience including many years developing and operating projects in the great state of Wyoming,” said Uranium Energy CEO and president Amir Adnani in the press release. “He will be working with Donna Wichers, vice president of Wyoming Operations, for the important restart of uranium production at our Christensen Ranch/Irigaray in-situ recovery operations in Wyoming.
