Decision on Uranium Mine Delayed by Federal Board

The federal Atomic Safety and Licensing Board has delayed making a decision on whether Powertech can build a proposed in situ mine near Edgemont, forcing supporter and opponents to wait another month.  According to the Rapid City Journal article, the board may not reach a decision now until the end of April, giving both sides time to find more evidence to support their cause.
