Proposed Western SD Uranium Mine Clears Hurdle

Proposed Western SD Uranium Mine Clears Hurdle

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission has issued a license for a proposed uranium mine in western South Dakota's Black Hills, saying a review has concluded that the mine could operate safely.

Opponents of the proposed mine say they'll take the matter to court.

Powertech Uranium Corp. still needs approval from the federal Environmental Protection Agency and the state of South Dakota before it can move forward with the Dewey-Burdock mine near Edgemont.

Project manager Mark Hollenbeck says the EPA has indicated it will issue a draft permit sometime this month and take public comment.

The state Board of Minerals and Environment and the state Water Management Board suspended hearings late last year until the federal agencies make decisions.
