Hi Folks:

Ranger is a name for an Upper Proterozoic, unconformity-related uranium
deposit near Jabiluka operated by the company, ERA - Energy Resources of
Australia Ltd, owned by Rio Tinto.  The mine produces about 10% of the world
annual reactor-related demand.  It's high on the "target" list for
anti-nuclear groups.

Apparently Ranger is a mine, not a company name. I'm still working on it 
but finally just found this one when mining resumed in 2004 --


more to follow ....
