Haul No! is an awareness & action tour that will be held in Spring 2017 along the proposed uranium haul route of the Canyon Mine (owned and operated by uranium production company Energy Fuels Inc.). We intend to spread awareness and stimulate action to ensure sacred sites, the Grand Canyon, and our communities are safeguarded from this deadly toxic threat.
Canyon Mine Haul Route Facts:
- Total distance of 300 miles
- Up to 24 trucks (both ways) with capacity to haul up to 30 tons of highly radioactive ore per day
- Truck loads to be covered with thin tarps, the only shielding from uranium and only protection from environmental contamination
- Proposed route will go through high population areas such as Valle, Williams, and Flagstaff; as well as through rural Navajo reservation communities including Cameron, Tuba City, and Kayenta; near the Hopi reservation, and finally arrive at Energy Fuel’s White Mesa Mill only three miles from the Ute Mountain Ute tribal community of White Mesa, Utah.
