I don’t blame anyone for wondering just what stew is simmering in my brainpan after the my post regarding the big fan of uranium mining aka Richard F. Clement of Powertech fame. Dropping dots is perfectly understandable when juggling like crazy.
dot–uranium is a radioactive and toxic metal used for nuclear energy and weapons.
dot–Powertech Uranium Corporation wants to extract uranium from the Dewey-Burdock area in South Dakota.
dot–Richard F. Clement is CEO of Powertech Uranium Corporation.
dot–Mr. Clement has previous experience working for other uranium mining operations in places like New Mexico.
dot–Many Navajo, and non-Navajo, uranium mine workers have died and/or experienced serious health complications.
dot–Marie Curie died from cancer as the result of exposure to radioactive materials during her scientific research.
dot–The Dewey-Burdock uranium extraction project is located about 20 miles from the Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary.
dot–The Dewey-Burdock project acreage alone covers 17,800 acres.
dot–Powertech intends to use In-Situ mining in the Dewey-Burdock Project.
dot–In-Situ involves forcing water into sandstone to dissolve uranium in order to bring it to the surface for extraction and then sending the fluids back into the “wellfield”.
dot–Massive amounts of table water are required for In-Situ mining. The Clean Water Alliance has done the math for how much water Powertech’s uranium mining would consume : http://www.sdcleanwateralliance.org/
dot–The uranium mined will be exported out of the USA for the energy interests of OTHER countries.
dot–Powertech is a Canadian Company.
Who will benefit from uranium mining in the Dewey-Burdock area? Not Americans. The “product” and the profits will leave America. This project will not reduce unemployment in the area. This project will consume valuable water resources. This project has the potential to contaminate several major sources of water with a single spill/leak/accident.
So why should the project go forth?
Clean Water Alliance has a great deal of information, links, contact etc. http://www.sdcleanwateralliance.org/
Yeah, I think I dropped a few other dots along the way. . . .
