Scientists have collected and analyzed 84 environmental samples to establish baseline data prior to any active uranium mining activities at the Canyon Uranium Mine, located south of Grand Canyon National Park. This baseline information will play an important role in assessing if contaminants escape from the mine site and how they would move through the environment once mining operations begin.
