Denison Mines hopes to amend operations

Denison Mines has asked the Forest Service and BLM to approve a Plan of Operations Amendment (POA) at its La Sal Mines Complex in San Juan County. The POA proposes the construction of additional mine vents, access roads, ongoing exploration drilling, expansion of an existing development rock area and a compilation of earlier Plans of Operation. Denison owns four underground uranium mines in the complex, the Pandora Mine, the La Sal Mine, the Snowball Mine and the Beaver Shaft Mine.

The proposed POA is available online at: http://www.fs.fed.us/r4/mantilasal/projects The Forest Service invites the public to comment on its proposed action. The decision is subject to appeal. Those who commented on this project during the initial scoping period ending January 31, 2011 must do so again if they wish to have appeal eligibility on the Forest Service decision.
