RM Potash, Inc. Prospecting
Potash, a subsidiary of the Sydney, Australia-based Red Metal Limited mineral exploration company, is currently working with federal officials from the Dolores Public Lands Office to locate between one and three initial drill holes (with the possibility of drilling 21 holes) to help ascertain the feasibility of a full-scale potash mining operation in the West End, agency officials told the San Miguel County Commissioners last week. The findings from the initial exploratory holes will help determine the future as it relates to the 21 potash prospecting permits in a 41,000-acre area for which the company has applied.

Royalties Charged for Uranium?
All other fuels -- coal, oil and gas -- are governed by leasing systems, which allow the government to better protect the public's economic and environmental interests. Under the current law, uranium-mining companies pay no royalty for the minerals they take from public lands. Uranium development in the West has polluted surface and ground water and left a toxic legacy in some communities that has yet to be addressed.
"Taxpayers have been fleeced out of millions of dollars in royalties from uranium companies mining on public lands," said Lauren Pagel, Earthworks Policy Director. Under a Bill proposed in the US House, a 12.5% royalty could be charged on uranium this will allow clean up of old uranium mine sites that continue to pollute water and harm nearby communities. Encourage your Representatives and Senators (use this link to locate your Senator or Representative) to support any bill that requires uranium royalties.
