Something else that seems to be missing is consideration by mining proponents for the recent research that has been conducted regarding uranium mining in Virginia. Recent research documents regarding uranium mining (milling and waste disposal) in Virginia may be found here. . The documents point to the unique challenges that Virginia will face if uranium mining is permitted. They point out potential risks and benefit scenarios; they do not predict outcome.

Mr. Scissons stated that he knew little about the Coles Hill project (the first proposed uranium mine and mill in Virginia). He made no mention of information contained in the studies listed on the UWG website. Scissons appeared ill-prepared to speak with authority regarding uranium mining in Virginia.
