The (Flagstaff) Daily Sun and other news outlets are reporting that the Arizona Dept. of Environmental Quality issued three air and one aquifer permits today for 3 uranium mines in northern Arizona being developed by Denison Mines. Denison already operates the Arizona #1 mine in the region.
Neither the ADEQ or Denison web sites have any news on this. The Sun doesn't state the mine names but the 3 with permits filed with ADEQ are Canyon, Pinenut, and EZ mines [right, credit ADEQ]
Mining opponents were quick to issue scathing critiques of the decisions.
