Areva employee on NAS uranium mining panel in Virginia

Comment:  Ace knows people who have ask for the rejection of removing 4 members of the study and have not heard anything!  A Bias corrupt study paid for by Virginia Uranium Inc. and funneled by Virginia Tech, a state own school, therefore, approved by the so call part leaders of VA!  Cozy...No to uranium mining and milling! 
The National Academy of Sciences has now chosen panelists for a study which will be used by the Virginia General Assembly to determine whether uranium mining should be permitted in the state.

Concerned citizens asked for the removal of an Areva employee, but their request was denied.

Areva runs uranium mines in Niger (and Canada) and, therefore, has a vested interest in uranium mining expansion.

The first meeting to vet the conflicts of interest of the panelists was on October 26-27, 2010.

The second meeting will take place November 15 and 16.

There will be another meeting in the Virginia target community December 13-15. Some sessions are closed. For meeting information and updates, go here.

While this study claims to be assessing just uranium mining in Virginia, citizens fear the results of this study could be used for other potential uranium mining sites
