No amount of money can repair any long term damage done by storing nuclear waste. Now that the mine has shut down, the forest and lakes around the area can slowly return to their natural state. Why make it far worse then it was? When did the mere symbol of a dollar sign become more important than the basic necessities for survival?

The earth has stored radioactive material for billions of years with no damage to anything. That includes the nuclear waste from the natural uranium fission reactors at Oklo, Africa.

Of course, no inconvenience (no matter how small) created by nuclear power can be tolerated, but the victims of Big Oil, just the price of business...
