Title: In-Situ Uranium Solution Mining--Environmental and Licensing Regulations: ABSTRACT

Author(s): C. Rutledge

Article Type: Meeting abstract


Under changing conditions, the structure of state or federal regulatory agencies, their resources and authority, and their people and how they function also are subject to changing responsibilities.

Similarly, a typical vigorous mining corporation utilizing newly developing technology changes with respect to its organization and objectives, its employees and their attitude, plus the economic principles and competition which motivate the company's method of operation. The interaction of the government agency and the firm finds concomitant changes in the outcome of the divergent forces and demands on each. Of particular importance are the provisions of rules, regulations, and permits produced under these circumstances, as well as the company's responses to them.
