The uranium study comparison is in this week’s Star-Tribune and is available below on the newspaper’s website.
also is available on Danville Regional Foundation’s website at www.drfonline.org.
The comparison looks at 10 key findings from the National Academy of Sciences Study, RTI Uranium Report, Chmura Study, Virginia Beach Study, Moran Report, and Fairfax Study.
It provides answers to who funded the studies, why the studies were done, and highlights the positive and negative environmental, health, economic, and social impacts of uranium mining and milling.
“The purpose of this comparison of uranium studies is to provide a framework to examine the findings regarding possible outcomes if uranium mining and milling occurs at the Coles Hill site in Pittsylvania County, Virginia,” the foundation said.
