Navajos Vow Fight Against New Uranium Mines

For the first time in United States history, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) will be challenged in Federal appeals court for its approval of a source materials license for an in situ leach uranium mine.

In-Situ Uranium Mine in Texas Blamed For Groundwater Contamination

Fort Collins Now traveled to Goliad, Texas to find out how ranchers and grandmothers are trying to stop a newly formed company from extracting uranium from the ground using their groundwater (sound familiar). The water turns bad, they say, when the mining company drills exploration wells nearby. For a glimpse of a possible future for northern Colorado if Powertech Uranium Corporation is allowed to proceed with their plans for a uranium mine near Nunn, read on.
