Energy Fuels Inc. (TSX:EFR) reported that Dr. Chris Urbina, the Executive Director of the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, has affirmed that the Company fully satisfied the requirements of Colorado law on the reissuance of the radioactive materials license for the Piñon Ridge Mill. Energy Fuels expects that CDPHE will be issuing a new license decision by the end of April 2013.
As quoted in the press release:
As was previously announced by the Company on January 15, 2013, a hearing officer concluded that the November 2012 administrative hearing on the Piñon Ridge Mill, held for the purpose of augmenting the administrative record, fully satisfied the requirements of Colorado law. A group of non-government organizations appealed the hearing officer’s decision. Dr. Urbina’s decision today denied their appeal, paving the way for CDPHE to issue a new license decision. Neither the hearing officer’s nor Dr. Urbina’s decision made any substantive recommendations regarding the approval or denial of the license.
