Australian company Wildhorse Energy is to cease all its operations in Hungary including the Mecsek Hills uranium project, citing a lack of progress and high ongoing project costs. Wildhorse had been looking into restarting uranium mining at Mecsek in a joint venture with Mecsekérc and Hungary Electricity Ltd, and was also developing an underground coal gasification project in the same region.
