Federal Commission Asked To Review Proposed Uranium Mine

May 28, 2015, 8:35 AM

Federal Commission Asked To Review Proposed Uranium Mine
RAPID CITY, SD -

A company that wants to mine uranium in western South Dakota and opponents of the plan have asked the Nuclear Regulatory Commission to review a federal board's mixed decision last month.
    
Petitions were filed Tuesday with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
    
A year ago, the Atomic Safety and Licensing Board gave a license to what's now Azarga Uranium Corp. for the proposed mine near Edgemont. The license was put on hold after mine opponents, including the Oglala Sioux, raised questions about possible damage to aquifers and cultural sites.
    
In late April, the board ruled in Azarga's favor on five challenges tied to water. But it also said the company should make efforts to find existing drill holes at the site, and that the mine could put cultural sites at risk.
