Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Having watched Navajo children playing on unmarked uranium tailings piles, i know this is so.

Exactly that previous experience of the Dine with Peabody Coal Company Peabody Energy Corporation¹ is why the uranium mines are closed and will, one hopes, never be re-opened.

As of yet, there's been no public announcement of plans to re-open New Mexico thorium mines.  I expect a popular uprising if they try.

Even some conservative wing-nut types hate the mining companies.
