US, State Agencies Review Proposed SD Uranium Mine

The uranium market dropped after the 2011 earthquake and tsunami in Japan that severely damaged a nuclear power plant, Powertech's Hollenbeck said, but the market is recovering.
"I think long-term, nuclear power is here to stay as the only truly large-scale carbon-free electrical power production we have," Hollenbeck said.
