The Honeymoon Mine is Australia's fourth uranium mine and Australia's second operating in-situ recovery mine and began production in 2011.[1] The Honeymoon mine is owned by JSC Atomenergoprom, a subsidiary of Rosatom State Atomic Energy Corporation. The uranium deposit belongs to the palaeochannel type. Operations at Honeymoon were suspended in November 2013, following difficulties in reaching production targets, high costs and a falling uranium price. The project has now been placed in care and maintenance.[2]
