Myths of the Coles Hill uranium deposit

Almost every news story on proposed uranium mining in Virginia includes a version of the outdated refrain: “Virginia Uranium Inc. hopes to mine 119 million pounds of uranium worth as much as $10 billion.” These estimates may have been accurate in 2007 and 2008 when uranium prices soared for the first time in 30 years to around $85 per pound, so why are these numbers a myth today?

Countering rumors and clarifying views

Tom McLaughlin contacted me recently to check out a rumor that I am employed by Virginia Uranium Inc. I do not work for VUI. I have participated in the uranium study process and the political process at my own expense; I have not gained financially from any source.
