Uranium exploration and mining again are on tap for the Fremont County Planning Commission.The panel will meet Tuesday evening in regular session with an agenda that includes a public hearing on a proposed amendment to the Fremont County Master Plan that would prohibit mining in certain areas of the county.
The amendment, submitted by the Tallahassee Area Community group, would prohibit mining in the “Mountain District” of Fremont County. That area covers about 500 square miles in the northern part of the county and another 250 square miles in the south-central part of the county.
