Umetco mined vanadium at an open pit mine site near Hot Springs, AR from the 1960s until the mid 1980s. The company ceased operations in 1986, began reclamation activities and is currently working to restore the area. This reclamation activity has been in progress under the auspice of the Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) for 27 years. Umetco is committed to continuing to manage the site in a manner that is best for the environment and the needs of the community. Undoubtedly, conditions will continue to improve as the reclamation process continues.
