The Multicultural Alliance for a Safe Environment and Amigos Bravos have filed an appeal to a permit issued by the New Mexico Mining Commission that would allow the Mt. Taylor Uranium Mine to return to “active” status, even though its own expert said it wouldn’t produce any uranium. The mine has not produced any uranium since 1990 and has been avoiding cleanup while under “standby” status. When the mine is in active or standby status, cleanup requirements are put on hold. 

It is time to kill this Zombie Mine and demand cleanup now!


This is simply a game to avoid having to start reclamation. By playing, the State is failing in its duties to protect groundwater for future generations. We all stand to loose.

Your input has impact! Join us to demand a safer New Mexico!

All regional Tribes including the 19 Pueblos have declared the land around Mt. Taylor unsuitable for mining activities due to its widespread cultural significance as a sacred site and the unique value of the area's hydrologic resources.
