  • Board approves Powertech plan to drill more holes

    By Chet Brokaw
    Pierre, South Dakota (AP)

    Despite opposition from Native Americans and environmental groups, a state board granted Powertech Uranium Corp. a permit to drill more test holes in the southwestern South Dakota area where it wants to mine for uranium.

    Powertech already has a state permit for 155 exploratory holes near Edgemont, but it plans to drill 30 additional holes about 600 feet deep in an attempt to find areas that have no uranium. Those uranium-free areas could become sites for the company’s processing plant and other buildings that would be needed if a mine is eventually started.
