    after living in Wyoming for many many years we feel that after seeing this area up and running in the past only to dry up and blow away but leaving everything contaminated and the out of staters making their millions only to leave the cleanup to wyoming residends and Goverment this is a bad ideal and to have a open meating at an hour which most would have a difficuilt time attending is wrong. I think it is sad to contaminate the few spots we residents have availible for land purchace and leaving the thousands upond thaousand of aceracage to our state and or the federal gov. owns untouched and unavailible.

    Great time to scedule a meeting on this. I doubt this will do any good but I am compelled to comment, I thought the cold war was over. What do we need uranium for? or we going to mine more and sell to other country’s like russia was hopping to do by buying up the mines and prossing plants in Wyoming. I remember Jeffery City up and running, then so many people up and moving away, leaving all thier garbage and contaminated ground water. The wife and I spend alot of time camping on green mountain and exploring around the area. Also have been looking for a little place in the area to move to when we retire.

    I agree I think this is a very bad idea. Jeffery city was once a mining town now its not. It should be left that way. I think it is a crock that big tycons come in to make a buck but they ruin the land, and migration routes for the wildlife. They don’t care about anything else. The plus side would be jobs but for how long. There are very few places anymore that have good clean air. Lets keep Wyoming like this. They can go dig for uranium somewhere else. I hunt in that area and have been for years. They would be changing the eco system.
