What is Bundy’s Militia really fighting for?
Uranium One has purchased Uranium thru Hillary Clinton. Thats a problem all by itself. But lets look at the situation with mining the Uranium. First off everyone needs to look at the environmental impact statement of whatever company will be mining the Uranium and look at the mitigation statement of the same.
More than likely there is a huge impact statement plus a large amount of land mitigation. (put land into conservation for said impact) If the Uranium deposit is as large as it appears to be then the mitigation of land will be huge. In simple terms if the land will be affected by mining then an equal or larger amount of land must be put in conservation in order to mitigate the impact of said operation.
Both EIS (environmental impact statement) and mitigation plan are required for operation of said entity whether it is an office building or a mine. So lets say the impact of operation is 200 acres then another 200 acres are required for mitigation of the 200 acre site. Now lets look at other factors will the operation of said company affect the air quality in the surrounding air. Then this will impact more acreage due to prevailing winds and other environmental factors. Lets say the winds carry a toxin across 300 more affected acres. Then the mitigation will require more land another 300 acres give or take depending upon the fallout of the prevailing winds. Now lets look at the water quality. How much water is affected this becomes a factor as well. Just like the Bundy situation how is the wildlife affected and how much land will be needed for the displacement of wildlife (flora and fauna).
In the case of Oregon the whole eastern side of the state could be part of an environmental impact and require exorbitant amounts of land for mitigation. In that the government would not only have to displace (flor and fauna) they would also have to displace the human element as well. And if the mitigation plan is delayed (there are time lines set for them)more than six months a whole new impact statement is required and a new mitigation plan is made. This process could delay a project by up to 2 years.
So back to the Hammonds the government required the Hammonds to be displaced for mitigation in order to go forth with the mitigation plan on time. When the deadlines approach the organizations panick and get ugly just like they did to the Hammonds.

Aurora uranium mine project on hold: According to Oregon Energy, “the project is on ice and not moving forward due to uranium prices and sage grouse issue.” (NRC Memo Dec. 12, 2013)
Notice of Intent provided to submit license application for Aurora project: On Apr. 4, 2012, Energy Ventures Limited announced that Notice of Intent to submit a Source Material Facility License Application has been provided to the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC). This notice relates to the proposed development of a uranium processing plant and tailings management facility at the Company’s Aurora Uranium Project.
Company presents project for Aurora open pit uranium mine and mill: The results of Oregon Energy’s test drilling at the Aurora uranium deposit in southeast Oregon has encouraged the company to go ahead with its plans for an open-pit mine at the site, and Oregon Energy’s president Lachlan Reynolds says Oregon Energy is willing to drop $200 million to establish the mine.
Gary Lynch, assistant director of the Mineral Land Regulation and Reclamation Program of Oregon’s Department of Geology and Natural Resources (DOGAMI) says Oregon Energy presented its proposal at a public meeting of the DOGAMI governing board on Sept. 13 but the company has not yet submitted an application for a mine.
The mine area, according to Chris Hansen of the Oregon Natural Desert Association (ONDA) , is “absolutely core sage grouse habitat.” Sage grouse have been in decline in Oregon. According to ONDA, there is warrant to list the rapidly disappearing sage grouse under the Endangered Species Act, but thanks to politics and a backlog with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the sage grouse is on a waiting list with 250 other species. Two drainages of Cottonwood and McDermitt Creeks go through the site, and Fish and Wildlife documents show that the creeks or their tributaries are endangered species listed Lahontan cutthroat trout habitat.
Oregon Energy plans to process the uranium on the site, which is also a concern for Hansen. (Eugene Weekly Sep. 29, 2011)
The Willamette Week reported on an Australian Company planning to mine the Uranium in Malheur County http://www.wweek.com/portland/article-18572-a_glowing_opportunity.html “It’s uranium—and the county has what may be the biggest sources in the U.S. “
The following is a link to a letter of Agreement to Acquire the Aurora Uranium”. Pay very close attention to the purchase agreement. Two million dollars for 100% (percent) interest in the property. (for the deposit in Malheur County.)
The following link is to the OregonLive (The Oregonian site. They reported on the deposit in 2012. http://www.oregonlive.com/pacific-northwest-news/index.ssf/2012/01/malheur_county_targeted_for_go.html
Based on the time frame of these articles and letters of agreement it is about time for the projects to move forward. To do so they must displace all property owners in order to mine the Uranium and Gold. The acquisition of the land is the most important key. If the deposits of these minerals are as large as I think, the whole eastern side of Oregon could be taken for mitigation of these projects.
