The Bureau of Land Management in Monticello, Utah, is considering using an expedited environmental analysis to allow a subsidiary of Canada-based Energy Fuels to expand a uranium mine in the heart of the Bears Ears region, between Natural Bridges National Monument and Glen Canyon National Recreation Area.
In a recent victory, the Obama administration declared Bears Ears a National Monument, granting protection for the spectacular landscape of Bears Ears. However, several politicians have suggested that they may seek to undo this historic protection.
