Judge refuses to overturn uranium mining ban


PHOENIX — Conservation groups celebrated a federal judge’s ruling that denied a motion to overturn the Obama administration’s ban on uranium mining on 1 million acres of public land near the Grand Canyon.

The decision by U.S. District Judge David Campbell in Phoenix rejected arguments from uranium mining interests that the federal government couldn’t withdraw such a large tract.

“If it had been instituted, it really would’ve crippled the ability of the Interior Department to say, ‘Hold on, we need to take some time to set these lands aside because there’s other lands out there we want to protect,’ ” said Ted Zukoski, an attorney with the environmental law firm Earthjustice.

The 20-year moratorium was adopted in January 2012 to protect the canyon’s watersheds by prohibiting new mining claims and any development on old claims that lacked “valid existing rights.”



With gold, silver and Uranium stocks being out of favor one must decide if this is a problem or an opportunity. We have steadfastly refused to buy gold and silver mining stocks for the last two years and as evidenced by the HUI we feel that our decision to hold back has been vindicated. The damage done to the mining sector may not be over yet but this demise is starting to offer up some exciting opportunities in my view.

Can you please tell us which companies are affected by this ban so that we can steer clear of them.
