An official of a drilling firm, working for Southern Union, reported "very, preliminary excavation work is being conducted." The official said, "The outlook is favorable but there's nothing definite yet and it may take years to develop." He said the drilling is expected to Continue for at least another six months. Phil Smith, Tonto forest ranger in the Payson area, said, "Most of the claims are on the forest lands, but some have been filed on private lands." A spokesman in the Payson area said the properties are the same as the ones filed on during the uranium boom of the 1950s. "The price of uranium now is much more commercial than during that period because of government removal of price controls on uranium," the spokesman said. At present, only one drilling rig is reported to be in operation but others are expected to resume exploratory drilling within the next few weeks.
