If uranium extraction were to occur, how long would mining operations last?

Mining operations would likely continue until there is no longer any economically recoverable uranium ore at the site. For various reasons, the prediction of a mine’s life is difficult and with fluctuations in the price of uranium, mining activity may be slowed, or even stop for a period.  To be economically viable, 10 years is usually the minimum mine life.  Of course, the ore is finite and the mine will close at some point.
