Getting Beyond the Hype: A Critical Review of the Economic Impacts of the Proposed Roca Honda Uranium Mine

Getting Beyond the Hype: A Critical Review of the Economic Impacts of the Proposed Roca Honda Uranium Mine

A report prepared for the Multicultural Alliance for a Safe Environment April 11, 2014

By  Power Consulting, Inc. www.powereconconsulting.com

Roca Honda Resources LLC has proposed a uranium development project that would involve a mine in the vicinity of the city of Grants, New Mexico. The uranium mine would make use of Cibola National Forest land and Roca Honda Resources has submitted a mining proposal to the U.S. Forest Service for approval. Power Consulting, Inc. was asked by the Multicultural Alliance for a Safe Environment (MASE) to review the economic impacts that the proponents of the proposed Roca Honda Mine have claimed will result if that mine is built and operated. Those claimed impacts, as described by the mine’s proponents, are exclusively positive, including new employment, wages and salaries, and revenues to state and local governments that would be directly and indirectly associated with the proposed Roca Honda Mine.
