Uranium haul trucks, coming soon to a highway near you…
The Canyon Uranium Mine, six miles from the Grand Canyon’s south rim, is set to resume operations in June 2015. If this happens, mine owner Energy Fuels plans to truck uranium ore through Flagstaff and dozens of other northern Arizona and southern Utah communities en route to the White Mesa Uranium Mill outside Blanding, Utah.
Jointly hosted by the Grand Canyon Trust, the Center for Biological Diversity and the Sierra Club, the meeting will be an occasion to share information and answer questions about the potentially devastating impacts of uranium mining on water, wildlife, human and environmental health. Join us for the discussion and find out what you can do to help protect the Grand Canyon and our communities from the toxic legacy of radioactive contamination.
