American Clean Energy Resources Trust (ACERT) is a coalition of concerned
private citizens who, together with uranium exploration and mining companies,
believe in the importance of maintaining a viable and environmentally responsible
minerals industry that will continue to benefit the economic health and
long range energy security of the United States.
Our mission is to inform and educate both
the public at large and our elected representatives about the multiple
benefits of clean, affordable nuclear energy and the consequent need for
continued domestic uranium exploration, mining and processing.
We encourage you to learn more about what
ACERT stands for and how it came into being.
This northern Arizona locale
was once the site of an active uranium mine that produced close to a million
pounds of uranium ore. After being thoroughly reclaimed, it is no different
than the area surrounding it. Can you tell where the mine shaft was once
located? No again? Neither can most geologists, environmentalists or miners!
|This scene exemplifies
the raw and majestic beauty of that part of Arizona north of the Grand
Canyon known as the Arizona Strip. But in the 1980's, the very
same locale seen in this photo was the site of active uranium mines
produced millions of pounds of high grade uranium ore. When mining was
the site was completely and thoroughly reclaimed and the
ensuing years have returned it to the same magnificent splendor of the
untouched land around it. Can you tell where the mine shafts were once
located? No? Neither can most geologists, environmentalists or miners!

The story of how this land was mined and
then completely and thoroughly reclaimed is detailed in a video titled
New Standard – Uranium Mining Reclamation produced by the Bureau
of Land Management (BLM). It explores the realities of uranium mining
and land reclamation in northern Arizona as it has been accomplished
over the past thirty years as well as the benchmark
model that it has become for the future. It presents both historical
fact and irrefutable documentation of the actual work
of many of the very same individuals still involved
with uranium mining in northern Arizona today.
