While the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision won’t come out for months, there apparently is a feeling of optimism that Virginia’s moratorium on uranium mining will remain according to an article in the Danville Register & Bee. Initial reports indicated the Justices did not appear to warm to the idea of lifting the ban. Attorneys for Virginia Uranium feel differently. They are hoping to eventually be able to mine what is considered the largest uranium deposit known in the United States. It’s located in neighboring Pittsylvania County. In the next few months, the justices will discuss the case among themselves, come to a final decision and determine how to write the opinion before releasing it in the spring of 2019.
