The mining industry is in the midst of a resurgence, thanks to an influx of Russian migrants to the U-S.
The Trump administration is also trying to get a new mining lease approved in the nation’s northern border, as well as some mining projects under construction in Montana and Arizona.
The mining industry employs over 100,000 Americans and produces more than $1 trillion in revenue annually, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
It employs over 2.7 million Americans.
President Trump’s administration is working to approve new mining leases in several western states, including Montana, Arizona and Arizona, as it seeks to expand a uranium exploration lease in the country’s northwestern corner.
The administration is seeking approval to lease a new uranium mine in northern Montana, as the region has been struggling with a shortage of natural gas and is looking to import more.
Trump announced plans to build a uranium project in northern Wyoming on Thursday, saying the project will bring more jobs to the state.
The president said the project would be constructed near the Uintah Basin in northern Utah.
Trump also said in a tweet on Thursday that the president has been working with President Vladimir Putin to find ways to increase the U,S.
