Environmental Review Oks Proposed SD Uranium Mine

January 30, 2014, 4:34 PM


A proposed uranium mine in southwestern South Dakota is another step closer to winning approval to operate.

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission announced Thursday it has issued a report that finds no environmental impacts that would preclude licensing the uranium mine.

However, the NRC is still reviewing the proposed mine's impact on historical and cultural resources and will only issue a license after that review is finished.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency also is reviewing the project.

And after the federal reviews are complete, two state boards will resume hearings to determine whether to issue the Dewey-Burdock project a state mining permit and some water permits.

The proposed mine would pump groundwater into the underground ore deposits to dissolve the uranium.
