Uranium mine expansion approved adjacent to original Bears Ears NMon boundaries

The Bureau of Land Management has issued final approvals for two uranium mine expansions in southeast Utah, including one on the backdoor of what used to be Bears Ears National Monument.

Bullseye Canyon, the site of uranium deposits tapped by the Daneros Mine, had been included within the boundaries of the monument proposed by five Indian tribes, but was left out by the Obama administration when it created the monument in December 2016.
