Uranium Mine

Nuclear Regulatory Commission

The Environmental Protection Agency is awarding permits for a proposed uranium mine in South Dakota.

But the mine, already about 15 years in the making, still faces more hurdles.

The proposed location is 13 miles northwest of Edgemont. That’s on the remote plains at the southwestern edge of the Black Hills, near the map dots of Dewey and Burdock.

Powertech, the company proposing the mine, is part of a Canadian company called Azarga Uranium.
