  • I've been called things like "anti-mining fanatic" and things of the sort.

    I'm not against mining. I'm not even against uranium mining. I'm against irresponsible uranium mining.

    I've been searching for good news for almost three years now and still haven't found any. Not a single person I've found says that the uranium mine next to their home is a great thing.

    TCEQ will pop in once a year, maybe twice, to check records but that's it. The uranium miners in Texas are "self reporting".

    If uranium is to be mined in Texas, then it needs to be done responsibly and away from people's drinking water.

    Goliad is a new and unusual situation in that a huge baseline has been collected to compare to in the future. This hasn't happened historically anywhere.

    "Not one documented piece of evidence exists that a private water well has ever been contaminated by in situ uranium mining!" That may well be, but then no group of people ever tested its water in advance like Goliad County has. Time will tell.

    The Contested Case Hearing is coming up in March. We shall see.

  • Yeppers, the process of collecting uranium cause much concern as it too pollutes the drinking water...by going to 3rd world countries they can produce without stricter rules and regulation guidelines...

    This one is close to home
