Wyo. Asks To Intervene In Uranium Mine Lawsuit

CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — Gov. Matt Mead wants the state to get involved in a lawsuit contesting federal approval of the Lost Creek uranium mine.

At Mead’s request, this week the state attorney general filed a motion seeking to intervene in the lawsuit brought by the Laramie-based Biodiversity Conservation Alliance last month.

In a statement Wednesday, Mead said he wants to protect Wyoming’s interests in the project. He said the mine would provide energy to the nation, jobs and tax revenue.

The alliance claims the U.S. Bureau of Land Management failed to take a hard look at how the mine would affect species including sage grouse. It wants a review of the approval.

The Associated Press reported Thursday that the company behind the project, Denver-based Ur-Energy Inc., wants to be involved in the review.
