Uranium lease comment period extended to July 1
The public comment period for an environmental impact statement regarding the leasing plan for 31 tracts of land on Mesa, Montrose and San Miguel counties has been extended from Friday to July 1.
The U.S. Department of Energy is considering how to manage uranium and vanadium leases on about 25,000 acres.
The draft environmental impact statement is an effort to analyze reasonably foreseeable consequences of a range of alternatives for managing the program.
The comment period was extended in response to a public request for more review time.
