Azarga’s Needs these Permits

Powertech/Azarga needs at least 10 permits/licenses before it can legally mine uranium in the Dewey-Burdock area in the Southern Black Hills.

They are:

  • NRC License (they have it, but can’t use it until litigation is settled)
  • EPA ISL mining permit
  • EPA deep disposal well permit
  • State mining permit
  • State water permit for Inyan Kara formations
  • State water permit for Madison formation
  • State wastewater spraying permit
  • BLM permission
  • NPDES wastewater permit
  • Army Corps of Engineers permit (this is actually a question mark right now, due to changes in federal law)

There will probably also be county permits in Custer County. None needed in Fall River County, as they’ve given them a green light for over 10 years now.
