Decimation of Pryor Mtn. Mustangs: Hidden Agenda? Uranium?

Here is a google map depicting the location of the Pryor Mountain Wild Horse Range.
(please click on all images to enlarge so you can read them)

The next series of maps show the locations of five uranium mines in the Pryor Mountains. These mines were recently purchased by FORTRESS FINANCIAL GROUP, INC. as part of their "25 Uranium Mining & Exploration Projects in Idaho, Northern Arizona, Utah and in Montana." source: Venture Returns, Fortress Financial Group Inc/Skyline Uranium Corporation

The Swamp Frog Mine

The Sandra Mine

The Old Glory Mine

The Marie Mine

The Dandy Mine

In 2007 the Federal Government posted a Schedule of Proposed Action for the Pryor Mountain Abandoned Uranium Mine Reclamation Project with the goal of reclaiming the abandoned Sandra & Old Glory uranium mines to: 1)reduce human health and safety concerns; and 2) reclaim and restore previously disturbed mine sites.

These were two of the mine purchased by the Fortress Financial Group. Nice of our government to spiff those raggedy ole mines up for their nice corporate customers. Wonder what this action cost?

OK - A major uranium mine reclamation project is planned for five mines within less than 15 miles of the Pryor Mountain Wild Horse Range. Between 2004-07 the price of uranium skyrocketed to $140 per lb. and them plummeted to its current $45 per lb. source: Uranium Miner

In another world, far, far away, there are rumors that uranium will once again ralley in price. source: Seeking Alpha

You don't think . . . NO, I am just being paranoid and suspicious. Because the BLM would NEVER have a hidden agenda like reducing the size of the Pryor Mountain Mustang herd just in case . . . no. Couldn't happen here, or could it?

Now that you have taken in the visuals, please read this article - The BLM, Uranium, and the Pryor Mountains by Jerry Finch, President of Habitat for Horses, R. T. Finch, Board Member of Habitat for Horses. Makes ya wonder. . .

Of course it's not about the welfare of the horses as they say it is. Mining Uranium is a huge factor in this decimation of the Pryor Mountain mustangs. It always comes down to money. More people should know about this facet of their agenda.
