The primary objective of the Guide is to address the technical, economic, social, and environmental factors that influence uranium mining and the siting of milling facilities in the western United States. Although the Guide is not a regulatory document, the information should be useful to local, state, and federal administrators, legislators, policy makers, planners, and regulators involved in the review or approval process for uranium projects. The information should also be of interest to citizens who would be affected by a proposed project. The Guide also highlights information that is considered by industry during the planning process. For example, site-specific aspects of mill tailings management are receiving increased attention from regulators and industry, and some earlier tailings disposal practices are no longer acceptable. A secondary objective of the Guide is to inform developers of the various options that may be available when planning uranium development projects. Although the location of the mine is fixed, there are options available in the design of the mill, such as alternative sites, process methods, waste disposal locations and pollution control techniques.
