Campaigns Against Uranium Mining

On July 21, 2009, Secretary of Interior Ken Salazar ordered a 2-year withdrawal of over 1 million acres of Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and National Forest lands near the Grand Canyon from new hard-rock mining claims, including uranium mining claims to provide time for studies and analyses of a more lengthy withdrawal. Unfortunately, this will not halt the development of existing claims and previously permitted uranium mining operations endangering the integrity of the Grand Canyon and the Colorado River, a drinking water source for millions of people.
