U.S. Miners Want Reversal Of Uranium Mining Ban Near Grand Canyon

The U.S. mining industry asked the U.S. Supreme Court on Friday to overturn an Obama-era rule, that prohibits the mining of uranium on public lands adjacent to the Grand Canyon.

The National Mining Association (NMA) and the American Exploration and Mining Association (AEMA) filed the petitions, wanting to reverse a 2012 ban on uranium mining claims on more than one million acres of public land adjacent to the canyon.

Conservation groups think the ban should remain in place until scientists have time to study the contamination risks.
