Seeking to shrink Bears Ears, uranium firm met with Interior before review
House panel plans oversight hearing on monuments next week
Posted Mar 4, 2019 3:08 PM

A meeting between an Interior Department official and a company tied to mineral interests in the Bears Ears National Monument area — almost a month before President Donald Trump requested a review that substantially reduced its boundaries — may end up in the crosshairs of House Natural Resources Committee Chairman Raul M. Grijalva.

Documents show that Energy Fuels Resources (USA) Inc., a subsidiary of a Canadian energy firm, met with a top Interior official who would be involved with the review before Trump requested it.

When President Barack Obama designated the monument in December 2016, its boundaries encompassed or abutted over 350 uranium claims tied to the company. Its uranium processing mill, the only such facility in the United States, was located mere miles from the monument. Proximity to a national monument can lead to additional regulatory scrutiny.
....

Grijalva, an Arizona Democrat, plans to investigate the monuments review. ... He said if an individual involved with the review met with Energy Fuels before the review began, “all my suspicions as to the motivation behind the shrinkage would be validated.”

2. There's a question that they did?

I had absolutely no doubt about it.

3. I was not aware of a Bears Ears national monument when reading the headline

 

and admit to wondering about shrinking the ears of bears. Still glad I clicked the link.

5. I almost didn't read this. I thought it was about animal cruelty.

Shrinking bears ears. The ears of bears.



I'm glad to know it's not about that!

7. I could not understand why a uranium company

wanted to shrink bears' ears. I am serious, this did not make any sense to me.
