Final Uranium Mining Report Released to Governor McDonnell
Chatham, VA - After months of public meetings, the Uranium Working Group handed over its final report to Governor Bob McDonnell Friday.
Virginia Uranium Incorporated wants to mine a massive deposit outside of Chatham.
Before they can, though, a 30 year ban on uranium mining in Virginia must be lifted.
This report does not recommend whether the ban should end.
The report covers the process of permitting a mine and how state and federal agencies would play a role and how policies could change.
