Satellite Imagery Analysis over the last 3 months shows a significant development at Martyr Qasem Soleimani Uranium Mining and Industrial Complex (Saghand Uranium Mine and Yellowcake Production Plant).

A Heap Leach Uranium Recovery Plant is now operational south of the existing underground. Satellite Imageries clearly show a 130m x 80m Heap with an impervious plastic liner and four ponds part of the Yellowcake production process. Heap leaching is a widely used extraction method for low-grade minerals, including copper, gold, silver, and uranium.

Saghand Uranium Deposit has 3,000-5,000 tons of uranium oxide reserves with a U-235 content estimated as between 0.08% and 1.0% for an annual production capacity of 50 tons of uranium ore.

The Iranian Khorgo underground ballistic missile site is almost operational after new launching positions were constructed, satellite images obtained by Fox News show.

Images taken by Maxar Technologies reveal four holes dug into the side of a mountain. Three of the shafts are hardened vertical launch positions in their final construction phase, according to a separate analysis done by the civilian intelligence group The Intel Lab.

"Considering the geographic location as well as the existing topography, once this complex reaches full operational capability, it will not be an easy task to neutralize it by conventional means," said Chief Intel Lab Analyst Itay Bar-Lev.

Revealed by ImageSat International in 2018, the suspected Iranian SSM Facility in Wadi Jahannam (Valley of Hell) in Syria shows a slow yet steady construction pace.

Additional Storage structures were completed at the end of 2020 and March 2021 at the southern tip of the complex.

Further Analysis of the complex performed on March 2021 Satellite Imagery leads to the assessment that the complex is active yet not fully operational although the essential and crucial construction phase has been completed.
