Regulatory oversight of uranium mine criticized

The Arizona (Flagstaff) Daily Sun ran a blistering story on the state's oversight of Denison Mines Arizona #1 uranium mine [right, head frame for Arizona #1. Credit, Denison Mines] saying it "has been largely left to regulate itself." The story appears to have been compiled from information in ADEQ files.

However, no one from Denison or the AZ Dept. of Environmental Quality is quoted in the story. We need to hear their responses, but reporter Cyndy Cole has raised concerns that have to be addressed.
