Attorney General Marty Jackley On Midday

Over the next several weeks, hearings on Powertech's applications for state permits are scheduled before the State Water Management Board and the Board of Minerals and Environment.  Powertech has identified its purpose is to operate an in situ leach (ISL) mine for uranium in Fall River and Custer Counties.  State law requires a formal process called a contested case hearing that is similar to a civil court trial.  Attorney General Marty Jackley joined Dakota Midday to explain the process.

Jackley also spoke about yesterday's finding of a car that may be linked to the 1971 disappearance of Vermillion teenagers Cheryl Miller and Pamela Jackson.  The Studebaker was discovered in an embankment at Brule Creek in Union County.
