Friday is the last day for your input on a plan to re-open a urnanium mine near Gateway.

Mesa County and the state have already approved permits for Energy Fuels Resources Corporation to start work on 4,890 acres near the Colorado-Utah border.

The B.L.M wants to hear about your concerns before officials write their environmental assesment of the project.

Federal officials say they still have to approve the project before the company can start work..

If you’d like to comment, you can email, call or write the Bureau of Land Management.
