Are uranium mines near the Grand Canyon hazardous to wildlife?
The risks posed to wildlife from uranium mining in the Grand Canyon watershed are broadly uncharted, scientists at the U.S. Geological Service wrote in a 2017 study. But scientists are finding other chemicals at Canyon Mine that threaten aquatic plants and animals, even though the mine has yet to extract any uranium ore.

U.S. Miners Want Reversal Of Uranium Mining Ban Near Grand Canyon
The U.S. mining industry asked the U.S. Supreme Court on Friday to overturn an Obama-era rule, that prohibits the mining of uranium on public lands adjacent to the Grand Canyon. The National Mining Association (NMA) and the American Exploration and Mining Association (AEMA) filed the petitions, wanting to reverse a 2012 ban on uranium mining claims on more than one million acres of public land adjacent to the canyon. Conservation groups think the ban should remain in place until scientists have time to study the contamination risks. http://feeds.reuters.com/~r/Reuters/domesticNews/~3/3_OtHuOycUc/u-s-miners-seek-reversal-of-uranium-mining-ban-near-grand-canyon-idUSKCN1GM001 http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

"A Slow Genocide of the People": Uranium Mining Leaves Toxic Nuclear Legacy on Indigenous Land
http://www.democracynow.org - The iconic Grand Canyon is the site of a battle over toxic uranium mining. Last year, a company called Energy Fuels Resources was given federal approval to reopen a mine six miles from the Grand Canyon's popular South Rim entrance. A coalition of Native and environmental groups have protested the decision, saying uranium mining could strain scarce water sources and pose serious health effects. Diné (Navajo) tribal lands are littered with abandoned uranium mines. From 1944 to 1986, 3.9 million tons of uranium ore were chiseled and blasted from the mountains and plains of the region. More than 1,000 mines have closed, but the mining companies never properly disposed of their radioactive waste piles, leading to a spike in cancer rates and other health ailments. Broadcasting from Flagstaff, Arizona, we speak with Taylor McKinnon, director of energy with Grand Canyon Trust, and Klee Benally, a Diné (Navajo) activist and musician. "It's really a slow genocide of the people, not just indigenous people of this region, but it's estimated that there are over 10 million people who are residing within 50 miles of abandoned uranium mines," Benally says. Benally also describes the struggle to preserve the San Francisco Peaks, an area considered sacred by 13 Native tribes, where the Snowbowl ski resort is using treated sewage water to make snow.

Uranium Mine Opening in Grand Canyon in Arizona during JH
Anyone find it strange the US Government, Department of Interior has banned the new mining of uranium in the US but is going to reopen an existing mine already contaminating the air, water, environment of the Grand Canyon in June during Jade Helm operations? Since the announcment PNC Bank, the sponsor of opening the mines has not said they are going to halt their reopening of the mine. And the Department of Interior has not said for them to even though even indiginous people in the area could be affected and people all the way into Mexico, Califonia, Texas, Utah, Arizona and many others. Also what about the threat of ISIS? What if they got the mine and started taking uranium? I know it would probably be bombed before anything could be done, but its already a known environmental hazard in the region why reopen it during the largest American training exercise in history on American soil?

Tribes Hope to Limit Uranium Mining around Grand Canyon
Native American tribes associated with the Grand Canyon are proposing a bill that will limit uranium mining in the Grand Canyon area. U.S. Representative Raul Grijalva (D-Ariz.) attended an event in Flagstaff to announce the proposed legislation. The bill, if passed by Congress, would protect 1.7 million acres of land around the canyon. Navajo president Russell Begay also attended the event, where he spoke about the history of uranium contamination on Navajo lands. Currently, there are few restrictions of Uranium mining in the Grand Canyon area. Tribal representatives like Carletta Tilousi say it is important to fight for protection of land in the Grand Canyon area.

Debate Over Uranium Mining Continues
The debate over plans to increase uranium mining near the Grand Canyon continues. Congressman Tom O’Halleran hosted a town hall meeting in Flagstaff on Thursday to gather local input on the controversial plan. Local elected officials and tribal leaders met with O’Halleran to address concerns about different aspects related to uranium mining policies. Havasupai Council Member Carletta Tilousi says the meeting gave the opportunity to express concerns about how the plan would impact Grand Canyon’s water, animals, and human life. Alicyn Gitlin from the Sierra Club says that the land needs more protection than the 2012 mining moratorium provides because it is the ancestral homeland of so many of the region’s people. A key concern with Flagstaff was a plan which would allow the transport of uranium ore through northern Arizona. After the meeting, O’Halleran invited citizens to speak and one local activist challenged him to sponsor a bill to clean up more than 500 abandoned uranium mines on the Navajo reservation.

Uranium Mining in US and Canada in the 1970s
Physically removing the rock ore generally involves either open-pit mining or underground mining. Milling is the process that removes uranium from the ore, which is mostly obtained in open-pit and underground mines. Once at the mill, the ore is crushed and ground up, and treated with chemical solutions to dissolve the uranium, which is then recovered from the solution. Tailings are the wastes from the millings processes and are stored in mill tailings impoundments, a specially designed waste disposal facility. Since 1979, when uranium mine workers began being diagnosed with lung diseases, such as cancer, regulators have gradually tightened controls and mandated improved uranium mining practices. Recently, officials also have become concerned with the broader impacts of uranium mining on public health and the environment. Workers are directly exposed to the radiation hazards of uranium mines. Uranium mining also releases radon from the ground into the atmosphere. Mines and mining waste can release radionuclides, including radon, and other pollutants to streams, springs, and other bodies of water. Federal and state agencies have established pollutant discharge limits and drinking water standards, and continue to monitor these sites for public safety. Uranium mine waste from operations that closed before the mid-1970s are of particular concern. In many cases, these mines remain unclaimed and the waste is still piled near the mine. Weathering can lead to radioactive dust that is blown by the wind and the seepage of contaminants into the surface and groundwater. There are also cases of unclaimed uranium mine waste being used for house construction, which creates significant radon and radiation hazard for inhabitants. For more information on the hazards of uranium, go to USEPA website http://www.epa.gov/radtown/basic.html . This is clipped from the late 1970's BBC Production, Energy From The Crust, showing uranium mining activities and equipment and including footage from the following uranium mines: Schwartzwalder Mine, Near Boulder, Colorado King Solomon Mine near Uravan, Colorado and the Key Lake Mine in Saskatchewan, Canada.

Ancient quarry
Canyon de Chelly National Monument - Reserve (a national monument) in the United States. Located in northeastern Arizona within the Navajo reservation. Access to the canyon is limited, visitors may visit it only with a guide, usually because of the Navajo. The only exception to this rule is the tourist trail "Ruins of the White House." The most amazing thing in the canyon - a vertical wall. In addition, they look like they are covered with a plaster, mostly likely the same breed as the arrays themselves. What were they mining in sandstone, is the question? Canyon de Chelly is horizontal layers of sandstone, which raises the question of, where did the vertical "lines" come from? I went on Google Earth, looked close up, but then found something interesting. If you back away to see where it shows the borders of the "Four Corner States" from high up, there is a big "circle" of mountain ranges in which "canyons" are found, including the Grand Canyon. Canyon de Chelly is in the middle of that circle. The geology of Arizona contains some great copper deposits that are still mined today, and also gold and silver. There are also precious gemstones and minerals that are formed with copper, and petrified wood. Perhaps Canyon de Chelly was an exploratory mining operation which didn't yield as much (if anything) as the Grand Canyon (much larger and bigger). There seems to be one point of entrance to the canyon with branches coming off of it. Another question arose, If there is a Petrified Forest National Park of "petrified wood" ("Petrified Forest National Park is a United States national park in Navajo and Apache counties in northeastern Arizona" -- and Canyon de Chelly is located in northeastern Arizona), then perhaps the mining is taking place at a site much like the one in the video you did on Lukomorie. Just some thoughts to add to the mix. I think it's a quarry of Atlantis. Support the channel https://www.paypal.me/philippdruzhinin

Uranium Mine Project Approved
April 8, 2015 - NAZ Today reports on a uranium mine project being approved near the Grand Canyon. A federal judge has approved the reopening of a uranium mine just six miles from the south rim of Grand Canyon. The mine has been closed since 1990, but its owners, Energy Fuels Resources, are now free to resume operations, pending an appeal of the case. U.S. District Court Judge David Campbell ruled against a lawsuit brought by the Havasupai tribe, Grand Canyon Trust, Center for Biological Diversity and Sierra Club. They claimed the reopening of the mine should have required a new review of environmental impacts and cultural impacts at a sacred Havasupai tribal site. Yesterday's ruling affirmed that the permit granted for Canyon Mine in 1986 has no expiration date, and allows its operation indefinitely, without further review.

Court upholds Obama-era ban on uranium mining near Grand Canyon. PHOENIX — The U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals on Tuesday upheld a 20-year ban on new uranium mining on public land near the Grand Canyon, while also striking down a challenge to an existing uranium mine south of Grand Canyon National Park. In its opinion, the court ruled that the ban, imposed in 2012 under former president Obama, lines up with the Constitution and federal environmental laws. However, it ruled that a mine 6 miles south of the national park had a right to operate. "We upheld the decision of the secretary of the Interior to withdraw, for 20 years, more than 1 million acres of public lands around Grand Canyon National Park from new mining claims," the opinion states. "That withdrawal did not extinguish 'valid existing rights.' " The ban was put in place by the U.S. Department of the Interior under former secretary Ken Salazar. It came as mining operations were renewing their interest in uranium deposits near the canyon.

Mining, milling, processing, reprocessing, manufacturing, and transporting nuclear materials are some other heads of the beast that are less visible. All are desecrating Mother Earth and killing her peoples. It’s time to deal with the initial stage of this problem. We can begin by cleaning up the abandoned uranium mines and placing a National Environmental Security Moratorium on all uranium extraction. https://www.popularresistance.org/the-toxic-threat-of-abandoned-uranium-mines-in-the-united-states/ USA Cows Fed Copper To Hide Radiated Gray Spots ☠ Lake By Uranium Mine Melts Steel! surprise pop up bonus link Coldplay - Yellow https://youtu.be/yKNxeF4KMsY USA Cows Fed Copper To Hide Radiated Gray Spots ☠ Lake By Uranium Mine Melts Steel! https://youtu.be/d1lMSpP9WYQ Irresponsible corporations and negligent government agencies have abandoned more than 10,000 toxic uranium mines throughout the US. These hazardous mines poison our air, land and water and harm public health. Currently no laws require cleanup of these dangerous sites. A new campaign, Clean Up The Mines!, aims for remediation of these mines through federal legislation and action, and public education. Abandoned Uranium Mines (AUMs) The Environmental Protection Agency and US Geological Survey document over 10,000 abandoned uranium mines in the US, most in 15 western states on public, private, and tribal lands. Over 4,200 of these mines produced uranium that was sold to the US Atomic Energy Commission for use in nuclear weapons from the 1940s through the 1970s. Starting in the 1960s, much of the mining was done to provide fuel for nuclear power plants. There are several AUMs in and near the Grand Canyon, 169 of them within 40 miles of Mt. Rushmore, and eight right on the edge of Grand Teton / Yellowstone National Parks. One in seven (10 million) people in the western US lives within 50 miles of an AUM. CLICK HERE TO SIGN THE PETITION TO CLEAN UP THE MINES AND ALL Future Uranium Mining Down! http://www.cleanupthemines.org/action/ AUM hazards and contamination pathways. Physical hazards of AUMs come from unmarked, unprotected mine entrances, cliffs, falling rocks, and collapsing buildings and equipment. Wind picks up radioactive dust from rock piles and blows it for miles people breathe fine particles into their lungs, resulting in much higher levels of lung cancer near AUMs. People carry the radioactive dust, dirt, and mud around on their clothes and shoes, spreading the contamination to their homes and families. One of the decay elements of uranium is radon gas. It seeps up through the ground in many areas around mine sites where people and animals breathe it in. Exposure to radon gas is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the US. Water picks up radiation in a variety of ways – rain washes radioactive dust from the air and rocks and carries it into streams and rivers. Surface and underground water dissolve uranium from rock and dust. This is particularly true of uranium that has been exposed to oxygen, which changes it from UIV to UVI, which is more soluble in water. (This is the principle used in ‘In Situ Leaching’, similar to fracking techniques, the method most commonly used now.) The result is polluted rivers, lakes, and aquifers, with no safe available drinking water for thousands of communities.
