Sarasota, FL, United States, 2007/03/13 - A New Mexico state senator’s successful uranium mining initiative has helped launch a new fact-finding study on the safety of uranium mining in that state.
New Mexico state senator David Ulibarri’s senate initiative, initially designed to increase public awareness of uranium mining and nuclear energy, has now taken on a larger dimension. After the New Mexico Senate Rules and Conservation Committees passed his SJM 10 bill, Senator Ulibarri decided he accomplished what he hoped for – to help launch a study of uranium mining safety.
He told StockInterview, “I represent an area that is ‘grassroots’ pro-nuclear – the Grants and Cibola area. What I want to do is to get a compromise and say: ‘let’s work together and get a study done.’ I want a study that is based on something concrete, not innuendos.”
The study is now in the process of being launched by the state’s Department of Energy, Minerals and Natural Resources. According to a source close to Senator Ulibarri, the uranium mining safety study will be funded by the uranium industry and will include assistance from New Mexico Tech University. Ulibarri told StockInterview, “We can’t depend on coal and oil. We have to diversify. We have about 600 million pounds in the Cibola-McKinley area. That’s a $50-billion industry.”
