Uranium mill permit survives court test

A judge today rejected an environmental organization’s lawsuit aimed at preventing construction of a uranium mill near Naturita.

Montrose County District Judge James Schum found that Montrose County was within its rights last year to issue a special-use permit to Energy Fuels Resources Corp. to build the uranium mill.

The ruling comes on the heels of a decision by state regulators allowing Energy Fuels to proceed with construction of the mill, which is to process 500 tons per day of ore for nuclear fuels industry.
