Court revives claim involving uranium mine near Grand Canyon

A federal appeals court has revived a challenge to a company's right to mine uranium near the Grand Canyon. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Thursday, Oct. 25, 2018, said a lower court must determine whether the U.S. Forest Service erred in finding that Energy Fuels had a valid, existing right to mine outside the national park's South Rim entrance. Environmentalists and the Havasupai Tribe had challenged the Forest Service's decision. (AP Photo/Jacquelyn Martin, File)
