Sarasota, FL, United States, 2007/02/15 - Strathmore Minerals vice president told StockInterview.com that he doesn’t see a real impact on the company’s Roca Honda property after the U.S. EPA ruled another uranium company’s New Mexico property was located in ‘Indian Country’.
Strathmore Minerals vice president of technical services John DeJoia told StockInterview, during an Audio Interview, “We don’t actually see a real impact to our efforts at Roca Honda as a result of this ruling.” DeJoia pointed out that geographically, “It’s approximately 70 miles east of our Church Rock property and where URI recently had the ruling.”
DeJoia also explained, “We are not on any Native American lands and there are no Native American lands adjacent to us. We have private property in the area, ranch lands, and other mineral holders. There is no checkerboard Indian ownership in the area. The community is predominantly non Native American.”
DeJoia told StockInterview, “This ruling basically doesn’t affect our schedule at Church Rock or at Roca Honda. We will currently do all the work we had originally planned to move our projects toward permitting.” He added, “We’ve started activities toward a mill design for the area.” According to DeJoia, Strathmore Minerals plans to start drilling to obtain background water data and complete a ‘radiation walk-over’ survey this spring.
