Potential Environmental Effects of Uranium Mining, Processing, and Reclamation

This chapter presents a discussion of impacts of uranium mining and processing operations on air quality, soil, surface water and groundwater, and biota. Much is already known about the environmental impacts of mining, both on-site and off-site, and that body of information provides a basis for this chapter. However, the primary emphasis of the chapter is on the unique …

Natural thorium resources and recovery: Options and impacts

The anticipated environmental impacts of by-product thorium recovery are small relative to those of uranium recovery since existing mining infrastructure utilization avoids the opening and operation of new mines and thorium recovery removes radionuclides from

Environment

Mitigating the impacts resource extraction has on the planet is a responsibility the mining industry takes very seriously and is a key component of maintaining our privilege to operate. The Canadian mining industry practices the highest environmental standards with a deep commitment to sustainable development and production. It is one of the reasons why mining […]

Uranium | Geoscience Australia

Uranium. Uranium (U) is a radioactive element that averages one to four parts per million in the Earth''s crust. Natural uranium contains about 0.7% of the U 235 isotope (the fissile isotope) and 99.2%of the U 238 isotope. Concentrations of uranium minerals such as uraninite, carnotite and brannerite can form commercial deposits.

6 Potential Environmental Effects of Uranium Mining, Processing, …

These impacts are not unique to uranium mining but are common to modern mining operations and large-scale industrial disturbance in general. These primary impacts are largely contained within the mining site, and the extent of soil impacts resulting from mining activities depends on the type of mining adopted.

AUSTRALIA''S URANIUM MINES – Parliament of Australia

The majority of concerns over mining with both the operating uranium mines in Australia, would be pertinent whether or not the mines were producing uranium. Water release issues, water consumption issues, dust release, road building, infrastructure construction and transport impacts occur with all mines.

Uranium Mining | Atomic Heritage Foundation

 · Uranium mining in the Belgian Congo primarily took place at the Shinkolobwe Mine owned by the Union Minière du Haut Katanga (Mining Union of Upper Katanga). It is located in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (previously known as the Belgian Congo and later Zaire), approximately 100 miles northwest of Lubumbashi.

Environmental Aspects of Uranium Mining: WNA

The Nabarlek uranium mine in the Northern Territory, c 270 km east of Darwin, was the first of the "new generation" of uranium mines to commence operations and the first to be rehabilitated. Environmental protection was stressed at Nabarlek since before mining commenced, and everything proceeded with eventual rehabilitation very much in mind.
