Board Hears Arguments On Temporary Powertech Stay

An attorney representing the Oglala Sioux Tribe says a company proposing a uranium mine near Edgemont needs better studies to ensure that it won't hurt cultural and historic sites in the Black Hills.

Three administrative judges of the federal Atomic Safety and Licensing Board listened to telephone arguments Tuesday on its decision to put a temporary hold on the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission operating license for Powertech Uranium Corp.

Attorney Jeff Parsons says the tribe needs to make sure sites of cultural significance aren't harmed.

Powertech attorney Christopher Pugsley says the company can drill sampling wells to gather data on ground water without an NRC permit. He says continuing the stay could delay state licensing efforts.

Chairman William Froehlich says the board will issue a decision within a few days.
