Uranium is a natural element with an average concentration of 2.8 parts per million on the Earth’s crust. It is more abundant than gold, silver or mercury, approximately the same as tin as and slightly less abundant than cobalt or lead. More than half of the world's uranium production comes from Australia, Canada, or Kazakhstan. Kazakhstan is, by far, the largest producer of uranium, approximately about 40 percent of global production. It should not be surprising, then, that five of the ten biggest uranium mines are located in the Central Asian country. Olympic Dam mine, Australia: Olympic Dam mine is a large poly-metallic underground mine located in South Australia. It is the second largest uranium-producing mine in the world. Appx 70% of the mine's revenue comes from copper, 25% from uranium, and the remainder from silver and gold. The Olympic Dam mine uses 35 million litres of Great Artesian Basin water each day, making it the largest industrial user of underground water in the southern hemisphere. McArthur River Uranium Mine: McArthur River Uranium Mine in Canada, is the world's largest high-grade uranium deposit. Production at McArthur River began in 1999 and the mine has an average ore grade of nearly 11% triuranium octoxide over 100 times the world average. Arlit Uranium. Mine, Niger: Arlit mine is a large mine located near Arlit, in the northern part of Niger. Uranium is extracted from the sedimentary deposit at depths of 50 to 70 meters and heap leached on site, at the open-pit mine. Ranger Uranium Mine: Ranger Uranium Mine is a mine in the Northern Territory of Australia. It is operated by Energy Resources of Australia, a 68% subsidiary of Rio Tinto Group. Uranium mined at Ranger is sold for use in nuclear power stations in Asia, Europe and North America. Ranger Uranium Mine is the open-pit mine produced 3216tU, approximately 6% of the world total. Langer Heinrich mine: Langer Heinrich mine is a large open pit mine located in the western part of Namibia Desert. Uranium is found within carnotite, an oxide that contains uranium and vanadium. The mine produces up to 1,180t of uranium oxide concentrate from 1.5Mt of calcrete-hosted ores per year. Krasnokamensk Uranium Mine, Russia: The Priargunsky mine is a large open pit mine located near the town of Krasnokamensk in the southern part of Russia. Priargunsky mine, delivered 3 percent of the world’s total uranium output. South Inkai Uranium Mine, Kazakhstan: South Inkai mine is a large in-situ leaching mine located in the southern part of Kazakhstan. It is one of the largest uranium reserves in Kazakhstan having estimated reserves of 135.4 million tonnes of ore grading 0.026% uranium. Budenovskoye 2 Uranium Mine, Kazakhstan: Budenovskoye 2 Uranium Mine, Kazakhstan having estimated reserves of 40.7 million tonnes of ore grading 0.022% uranium Rossing Uranium Mine: Rossing Uranium Mine in Namibia is the longest-running and one of the largest open pit uranium mines in the world. Mine produced 3,711 tonnes of uranium oxide, becoming the fifth-largest uranium mine with 8 per cent of global output.

11 Most Massive Mines in the World
 
10:20
From the worlds largest gold mine found on the top of a mountain to the largest diamond mine in the world here are the most massive mines in the world! Subscribe to American EYE! 5.. Asbestos Mine, Canada Also known as the Jeffrey Mine, it’s located in Asbestos, Quebec and it was in operation until 2012. It’s a whopping 2 kilometers wide and 370 meters deep! Check out this thing on google maps and you can tell how completely massive this thing is! It’s the by far the largest asbestos mine in the world. For a long period of time, people would use this mineral to put into their walls and keep their homes from catching on fire! But recently there’s been a link with asbestos and a disease called mesothelioma, which is a lung condition. This is a toxic substance that people should avoid, so obviously this large mine went out of business. The lake at the bottom might look like an inviting blue, but you can bet your bottom dollar, it’s highly toxic! The small town that grew with the thriving asbestos industry feels like they’ve kind of lost their identity once the mine was forced to close, but people do still live there. 4. Mcarthur River Uranium Mine In case you were wondering which mine produces the most uranium in the world, that would be of course the Mcarthur River uranium mine in Saskatchewan Canada. This huge deposit was found in 1988 and finally a mining operation took place in 1997, when it began producing what’s known as Yellowcake. It’s not the kind of yellow cake you’d eat with your grandparents. This stuff has a horrific odor and basically what it is, is concentrated uranium powder which can then be used for powering nuclear reactors. We imagine this powdery substance is quite difficult to get ahold of. There aren’t a ton of photos of this place but, it does produce about 13 percent of the global uranium production across the globe. 3. Diavik Diamond Mine In case you thought it was Africa who had all the massive diamond mines, think again! The Diavik Diamond mine, found in the the northwest territories of Canada is one of the largest producers of diamonds in the Northern hemisphere and this place is pretty crazy! They annually produce 7 million carats of diamonds each year and you better believe it’s not easy to get here. The Diavik mine is found north of the arctic circle and it’s definitely cold! This photo here shows the subarctic landscapes that surround the diamond mine. You thought getting to work in the morning was tough for you? Imagine trying to get to work here! Just recently in 2015, this diamond produced what was known as the Diavik Foxfire 187.7 which is one of the largest rough gem quality diamonds ever produced. 2. Siberian Diamond Mine Also known as the Mirny Mine, The USSR began searching for ways to make to make themselves a more economical stable and independent union. In 1955 the Soviets discovered large diamond deposits at this site in the far away lands of Siberia and many people got to work very quickly in order to help bring wealth to the union. After about 20 years of operations, they finally decided that At one point this mine produced 10 million carats of diamonds a year and reaches a max depth of 524 meters or around 1700 feet making it the 2nd largest excavated hole in the world. The mine is so deep, airspace is closed over the hole due to helicopter crashes caused from the downward flow of air. The construction of this in the frigid conditions of Siberia must have been grueling and downright cruel. Sources state that the machinery used at this mine had to be covered at night or it would freeze Are the diamonds worth freezing to death?! It’s unoperational today but Some claim that there’s still a bunch of diamonds in this mine and the whole thing could be worth about 12 Billion dollars. It’s possible that controlling this diamond is mine is crucial to controlling the price of diamonds across the world. Bingham Copper Mine The bingham copper mine located near Salt Lake City Utah is home to the biggest pit in the world and it’s been in operation since 1903. It’s about 2.5 miles wide and if it were a stadium, it would be able to fit an estimated 9.5 million people. It keeps getting bigger and bigger too! Diligent workers can move about 250,000 tons of rock each day and it’s even become a tourist attraction in recent years before a massive landslide took place. Some claim that this was the biggest non volcanic landslide to take place in North American modern history. This photo we see here shows you the aftermath of this massive landslide and Bingham Copper mine and it makes you wonder how safe some of the conditions at these mines truly are. The landslides were so massive, that they actually triggered a few small earthquakes! Experts estimated that 165 tons of earth slide down from the top of the mine all the way to the bottom.

Uranium Mining in US and Canada in the 1970s
 
08:51
Physically removing the rock ore generally involves either open-pit mining or underground mining. Milling is the process that removes uranium from the ore, which is mostly obtained in open-pit and underground mines. Once at the mill, the ore is crushed and ground up, and treated with chemical solutions to dissolve the uranium, which is then recovered from the solution. Tailings are the wastes from the millings processes and are stored in mill tailings impoundments, a specially designed waste disposal facility. Since 1979, when uranium mine workers began being diagnosed with lung diseases, such as cancer, regulators have gradually tightened controls and mandated improved uranium mining practices. Recently, officials also have become concerned with the broader impacts of uranium mining on public health and the environment. Workers are directly exposed to the radiation hazards of uranium mines. Uranium mining also releases radon from the ground into the atmosphere. Mines and mining waste can release radionuclides, including radon, and other pollutants to streams, springs, and other bodies of water. Federal and state agencies have established pollutant discharge limits and drinking water standards, and continue to monitor these sites for public safety. Uranium mine waste from operations that closed before the mid-1970s are of particular concern. In many cases, these mines remain unclaimed and the waste is still piled near the mine. Weathering can lead to radioactive dust that is blown by the wind and the seepage of contaminants into the surface and groundwater. There are also cases of unclaimed uranium mine waste being used for house construction, which creates significant radon and radiation hazard for inhabitants. For more information on the hazards of uranium, go to USEPA website http://www.epa.gov/radtown/basic.html . This is clipped from the late 1970's BBC Production, Energy From The Crust, showing uranium mining activities and equipment and including footage from the following uranium mines: Schwartzwalder Mine, Near Boulder, Colorado King Solomon Mine near Uravan, Colorado and the Key Lake Mine in Saskatchewan, Canada. The entire film is available at the Internet Archive.

Mining Battles: Uranium, Coal, and Gold
 
27:19
Find more Earth Focus content at https://www.linktv.org/earthfocus (Earth Focus: Episode 67) An impoverished former mining community in Colorado hopes that a proposed uranium mill will bring jobs and prosperity until environmentalists step in to try to stop it. Who gets to decide? Filmmaker Suzan Beraza documents the debate in her new film Uranium Drive-In. Rhinos are killed for their horn. But now in South Africa they face a new threat -- coal. Plans for an open cast coal mine on the border of Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Park, home to the largest population in the world of the once endangered white rhino, may bring economic development. However, these plans will also worsen air and water quality and increase poaching and crime. Jeff Barbee reports from South Africa. The indigenous people in Ecuador's Kimsakocha wetlands rely on the land's water for their livelihood -- agriculture and livestock production. But there is gold under the water and foreign mining companies are out to get it. The local people mount a fierce opposition. "Resistance will not end, we will not give up even if we are in prison," says local community leader Carlos Perez. Constantino de Miguel reports from Ecuador.

Crying Out Loud For Love - Sharbot Lake Uranium Protest
 
04:24
The standoff over uranium mining at Sharbot Lake just north of Kingston Ontario is not a conflict between "natives and non-natives"...the dispute is between the Indigenous landowners and the mining companies and their colonial government puppets. Natives and Non-Natives are joining together to ensure that the earth is not raped for uranium and that the future of ourselves and of our children are not left with a toxic dump. A mysterious private company called "Frontenac Ventures Corporation" FVC has been trespassing on our land so it can extract our resources. Frontenac is a "private" company that develops uranium properties in Canada. Their website has three paragraphs with no names, addresses, phone numbers or links for more information. It states they operated "four mines between 1957 to 1964 in that area which produced 15 million pounds of uranium from pegmatite ore". Open pit mining is one of their favourite methods. They presently have 400 claims for almost 8,000 hectares on Algonquin territory. They also have claims on property occupied by non-native cottagers who feel totally voiceless. According to their website Frontenac plans "to start aggressive exploration and development immediately". Frontenac's board is made up of: Dr. K. Sethu Raman, former Vice-President of "Campbell Chibougamau Mines" and "Royex Gold Group of Companies" (now "Barrrick Gold"); George White at 613-479-2936, the front man, former vice-president and general manager of "Westburne Industrial Enterprise Limited" that distributes oil and gas all the world. William J. Radvak is co-founder of "Response Biomedical Corporation" which develops and commercializes rapid "immunoassay diagnostic" tests; Anthony Deweth previously of the private banking sector of "CIBC Wood Gundy"; and Doris Meyer, former vice-president and financial officer of "Queenstake" which negotiated the acquisition of the "Jerritt Canyon Mine" in Nevada and other publicly traded mining companies. Her own company is "Golden Oak Corporate Services". Private corporations like Frontenac are not listed on the stock exchange. We cannot find out who the real owners are. They could be a front for secret investors. They appear to have something to hide. There is a legal separation between the private investors and the corporation. In this case it is almost impossible to pierce the corporate veil and get at the scoundrels who hide behind such corporations. Let's take that veil off. The Algonquins are sovereign and independent who never surrendered their lands. They are not part of Canada because they never agreed to join the colonial state and come under the "Indian Act". They remain independent under their own traditional law and the rules of international law apply. Write your members of parliament, the prime minister and the international community. Ask who has bought off the government and why? Is any amount of money gained in one lifetime worth jeopardizing the lives of humans for 10,000 years to come? Peace! The Wren

The 'Mercenary Geologist' Mickey Fulp interviewed by Dominic Frisby about mining
 
20:32
Subscribe to our newsletter at http://www.goldmoney.com/goldresearch. In this video podcast the GoldMoney Foundation's Dominic Frisby interviews Mickey Fulp, who is the "Mercenary Geologist". They talk about the good, the bad, and the ugly of mining companies. The certified geologist Fulp explains the criteria by which he determines how to value a mining company. Most importantly he looks at the type of deposits. For that he analyses the cost of production, the time line from discovery to production, as well as access to capital and possible exit strategies. Fulp's favourite deposits are open-pit heap leach oxide gold deposits, copper oxide deposits and ISR or open-pit heap leach uranium deposits, as these meet all his important criteria. To the list of bad deposits he counts polymetallic deposits and giant iron ore deposits. Fulp, who was one of the early birds in the rare earth market, sees good opportunities in graphite, which he calls the next rare earth. This video podcast was recorded on March 4 2012 at the PDAC Convention in Toronto, Canada.

Feature documentary Open Pit is a tour de force of investigative journalism and guerilla filmmaking that reveals the vicious face of "dirty gold" in Peru. A film by Gianni Converso. Produced by Daniel Santana and Gianni Converso. In the heart of Cajamarca, Newmont Mining Corporation operates the Yanacocha Gold Mine, one of the largest Open Pit mining operations in the world. Using the cyanide leach process, Newmont Mining has come to define "dirty gold" for a generation of Campecinos -- the indigenous people who have lived at the top of the Peruvian Andes since the Inca civilization.

These photographs and audio portraits were captured in villages and on tribal lands nestled between the world's largest open pit uranium mine and a pile of toxic waste, or tailings. The piles and pits are designated Superfund sites, and represent the legacy of uranium extraction and processing in the American Southwest. Who are the neighbors of Superfund sites? What is it like to live next to a tailings pile? How do residents of a boomtown see the uranium industry? Each site is exposed to powerful winds that blow radioactive dust across New Mexico. For those who live downwind, this dust has become both a reminder of a wealthier time and a source of anxiety. Innumerable thanks to the residents of Acoma and Grants who entrusted me with their stories and images.

WUS 2015 PLENARY 1 URANIUM MINING & THE NUCLEAR FUEL CHAIN: ISSUES & CONTROVERSIES
 
57:57
MARIETTE LIEFFERINK (SOUTH-AFRICA) CEO of Federation for a Sustainable Environment IAN FAIRLIE (UK) Scientist, former advisor to UK government, now independent consultant on radiological risks HELEN MARY CALDICOTT (AUSTRALIA) Physician, cofounder of Physicians for Social Responsibility, well-known author on nuclear issues THE SYMPOSIUM The World Uranium Symposium will address issues arising from the nuclear fuel chain, from mining uranium to its end-uses and byproducts for civilian or military purposes. Both scientific and community-based, the Symposium is organized around the following themes: health, environment, economy, ethics, governance, human rights and the rights of indigenous peoples. Open to the public, the symposium had hosted more than 300 people per day from 14 to 16 April 2015, and had included local, national and international representatives from the sectors of health, research, industry, education, civil society, policy makers and indigenous communities. local, national and/or international media were present. All presentations of the symposium will be posted in electronic formats (text and / or videos) after the Symposium, in French and / or English. • April 14 (Day 1): Uranium mines and the nuclear life cycle : health and environmental issues • April 15 (Day 2): Civil and military nuclear : ethics, economics and political issues • April 16 (Day 3): Human rights, indigenous peoples' rights and governance issues ORGANIZATIONS INVOLVED The Symposium is jointly organized by Physicians for Global Survival (1985 Nobel Peace Prize), the Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment, Nature Québec, the Canadian Coalition for Nuclear Responsibility and the Coalition pour que le Québec ait meilleure mine. It also receives support from the International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War (Swiss chapter), the First Nations of Quebec and Labrador Sustainable Development Institute, the Cree Nation of Mistissini, MiningWatch Canada, and a number of other local, national and international partners. CONTEXT The Symposium is occurring at a time when many organizations and governments question the future ofnuclear power, currently providing about 11% of the world’s electricity. The year 2015 also marks the seventieth anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and the corresponding United Nations negotiations of the Non Proliferation Treaty for the prevention and the abolition of nuclear arms. It will also see the tabling on a new UN treaty on climate change. Canada is one of the largest producers and exporters of uranium worldwide, yet its nuclear energy output is in relative decline. Only two provinces still operate nuclear reactors: Ontario and New Brunswick. While uranium has been primarily mined from Saskatchewan, the provinces of British Columbia and Nova Scotia have officially banned uranium mining. Quebec recently shut down its sole nuclear reactor and has tasked the Bureau d’audiences publiques sur l’environnement (BAPE) with conducting an investigation on issues related to uranium mining. It is expected to release its report by May 20 2015. The Symposium aims to tackle these different issues and to provide recommendations to decision makers to better ensure protection for the human health, global security and a safe environment

How Copper is Mined and Refined: "A Story Of Copper" 1951 US Bureau of Mines
 
33:35
Support this channel: https://www.patreon.com/jeffquitney more at http://scitech.quickfound.net/geology_news_and_links.html "Tells the story of the mining and manufacture of copper from the crude ore to the finished product. lots of footage of giant machines, some blasting." Originally a public domain film, slightly cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and mild video noise reduction applied. The soundtrack was also processed with volume normalization, noise reduction, clipping reduction, and/or equalization (the resulting sound, though not perfect, is far less noisy than the original). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Copper_extraction_techniques Wikipedia license: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ Copper extraction techniques refers to the methods for obtaining copper from its ores. The conversion of copper consists of a series of chemical, physical, and electrochemical processes. Methods have evolved and vary with country depending on the ore source, local environmental regulations, and other factors. As in all mining operations, the ore must usually be beneficiated (concentrated). To do this, the ore is crushed. Then it must be roasted to convert sulfides to oxides, which are smelted to produce matte. Finally, it undergoes various refining processes, the final one being electrolysis. For economic and environmental reasons, many of the byproducts of extraction are reclaimed. Sulfur dioxide gas, for example, is captured and turned into sulfuric acid — which is then used in the extraction process... History The earliest evidence of cold-hammering of native copper comes from the excavation at Çaÿonü Tepesi in eastern Anatolia. The radiocarbon date is 7250 ± 250 BCE. Among the various items considered to be votive or amulets there was one that looked like a fishhook and one like an awl. An archaeological site in southeastern Europe (Serbia) contains the oldest securely dated evidence of copper making at high temperature, from 7,000 years ago. The find in June 2010 extends the known record of copper smelting by about 500 years, and suggests that copper smelting may have been invented in separate parts of Asia and Europe at that time rather than spreading from a single source. Copper smelting technology gave rise to the Copper Age and then the Bronze Age. Concentration Most copper ores contain only a small percentage of copper metal bound up within valuable ore minerals, with the remainder of the ore being unwanted rock or gangue minerals, typically silicate minerals or oxide minerals for which there is often no value. The average grade of copper ores in the 21st century is below 0.6% copper, with a proportion of economic ore minerals (including copper) being less than 2% of the total volume of the ore rock. A key objective in the metallurgical treatment of any ore is the separation of ore minerals from gangue minerals within the rock. The first stage of any process within a metallurgical treatment circuit is accurate grinding or comminution, where the rock is crushed to produce small particles... Subsequent steps depend on the nature of the ore containing the copper. For oxide ores, a hydrometallurgical liberation process is normally undertaken, which uses the soluble nature of the ore minerals to the advantage of the metallurgical treatment plant. For sulfide ores, both secondary (supergene) and primary (hypogene), froth flotation is used to physically separate ore from gangue. For special native copper bearing ore bodies or sections of ore bodies rich in supergene native copper, this mineral can be recovered by a simple gravity circuit... Until the latter half of the 20th century, smelting sulfide ores was almost the sole means of producing copper metal from mined ores (primary copper production)... The copper is refined by electrolysis. The anodes cast from processed blister copper are placed into an aqueous solution of 3–4% copper sulfate and 10–16% sulfuric acid. Cathodes are thin rolled sheets of highly pure copper or, more commonly these days, reusable stainless steel starting sheets (as in the IsaKidd process). A potential of only 0.2–0.4 volts is required for the process to commence. At the anode, copper and less noble metals dissolve. More noble metals such as silver, gold, selenium, and tellurium settle to the bottom of the cell as anode slime, which forms a salable byproduct. Copper(II) ions migrate through the electrolyte to the cathode. At the cathode, copper metal plates out, but less noble constituents such as arsenic and zinc remain in solution unless a higher voltage is used. The reactions are: At the anode: Cu(s) → Cu2+(aq) + 2e− At the cathode: Cu2+(aq) + 2e− → Cu(s)...

Bannerman Resources' managing director shares expert insights on uranium market
 
10:04
Bannerman Resources Ltd (ASX:BMN; NSX:BMN) managing director Brandon Munro speaks to Proactive Investors about the company's Etango Uranium Project in Namibia, and also provides insights on the wider uranium market. The company completed a Definitive Feasibility Study (DFS) on the Etango Project in 2012, which it is currently in the process of updating. Several de-risking and optimisation initiatives have been completed in the meantime. "It will be a top-10 producing mine in the world once it's up and running, and its also very simple. Technically it's very simple, it's an open pit, low stripping ratio project, it enjoys all of the efficiencies of being a very large bulk mining operation. And we're quite unique in that we can process our ores through a low cost heap leaching operation.... arguably we're the most developed project in the world that isn't already in construction,” says Munro. Earlier this month, Bannerman Resources raised $8 million in a heavily oversubscribed placement at 4.6 cents. Munro explains, "in undertaking the raise we really had two objectives. One was to try and improve the quality of our register, try and ascertain if there was institutional interest out there, and if so try and build our register with that, and we certainly achieved that and we're extremely happy with how that went. But secondly, with $8 million, because of all the advanced study work that we've done over the years on our project, what that means is we're now fully funded all the way to an investment decision." Speaking about the global uranium market in general, Munro says, “it’s a very interesting position that we’re in in the market. Yes, the spot price has ticked up a little, but I would still describe it as being in a situation of inertia. The spot price certainly hasn’t responded to the market fundamentals that we’re seeing unfolding… We’re moving from surplus into deficit, and that inflection point in itself is very insignificant for a commodity, but when you start to look at what’s coming literally around the corner, developments that are happening in days and weeks at the moment, you start to realise that not only are we inflecting from surplus to deficit, we’re moving into a very deep deficit over the next few years… From a prospective producer who is very well advanced, who has an excellent technical basis to their project, that optionality is boosted enormously by the volatility that we would expect from this pricing inertia.”
How Did Nuclear Power Come To Dominate US Energy Leaving 15,000 Abandoned Uranium Mines (Pt. 1)
 
20:23
The following news piece represents the first in a 15 part mini-series titled, Nuclear Power in Our World Today, featuring nuclear authority and world expert, nuclear engineer and whistleblower Arnie Gundersen of Fairewinds Energy. The EnviroNews USA special encompasses a wide span of topics, ranging from Manhattan-era madness to the continuously unfolding crisis on the ground at Fukushima Daiichi in eastern Japan. Our journey extends outward from a bombshell interview conducted by EnviroNews Editor-in-Chief Emerson Urry, with the esteemed nuclear expert, whistleblower, and expert witness Arnie Gundersen. Gundersen is a nuclear engineer, as well as a former power plant operator, and trade executive, whose own life, for a good amount of time, was ruined by the nuclear industry after he exposed radioactive safety violations. So to get this series rolling, here’s what Gundersen revealed to Emerson Urry. We were talking about Fukushima and obviously the myriad isotopes that are put off as a byproduct of the nuclear fission that is happening in the reactor. It all starts there with the uranium, and there was quite a rush for that, and now we have all of these situations. To our understanding there are about 15,000 abandoned uranium mines that have been left in complete ruin with very little cleanup or remediation at all, just in the western United States. This has happened, by-and-large, because of an antiquated mining bill – the 1872 Mining Bill. Gundersen: I’ll give you another example of the same thing, and I would say “yes” to everything you said is the quick answer. There is a mill-tailings site in Moab, Utah. The Nuclear Regulatory Commission told the owner of the site that they needed to set aside six million dollars to clean it up. Well, the actual cleanup is a billion dollars. What did the owner do? They declared bankruptcy and walked away. Urry: And it wasn’t bonded? No bond? Gundersen: Right. It wasn’t bonded. You know, if you bonded uranium mining, you wouldn’t have uranium mining. Urry: Because nobody would probably… Gundersen: The way our system is set up is that you take the profit early, and then when everything is done you walk away and the government takes the risk. So, we’ve socialized the risk, and the capitalists make the profit early on and the rest of us pick up the cost afterward. And that’s historically true on the Navajo reservation especially – but you get in the Black Hills and the Lakota Sioux… When Gundersen said the brunt of these mines are on Native American lands, he wasn’t kidding. All of these are abandoned open-pit uranium mines. 397 in Montana, 2103 in Wyoming, 113 in North Dakota, 272 in South Dakota, and 387 in northern Colorado, for a total of 3272. This is an abandoned open-pit uranium mine on the southwestern edge of the Black Hills. The thing about the Darrow Pits Mine is that they are only 40 miles from Mt. Rushmore. Millions of tourists travel to Mt. Rushmore every year not knowing that they are breathing in radioactive dust, and the water that they drink in the motels in Rapid City contains uranium. Recently, March 2013, the U.S. Forest Service finally issued a public safety closure order because of the dangers to human health. Among the particles that are in there are arsenic, molybdenum, thorium, radium and uranium. These are all in the form of dust or runoff, and they are picked up by the wind. Our levels were very very high compared to Chernobyl. The radiation levels in parts I visited with my students were higher than those in the evacuated zones around the Fukushima nuclear disaster.” Higher. Fukushima radiation levels were higher than Chernobyl. The Northern Great Plains’ levels are higher than Fukushima — and these are not from nuclear power plants or from an atomic weapon, or atomic bomb being exploded. These are from 2,885 abandoned open-pit uranium mines and prospects, and we are subject to that radioactive pollution constantly. All of these abandoned open-pit uranium mines in the Northern Great Plains are affecting everyone, but they are genocide for the Great Sioux Nation — for my people. This is genocide. Contact your congressman, your senators. Ask them to pass a bill to clean up all the abandoned uranium mines in all of the United States.

Kevin Buzzacott challenges Tony Burke in Federal Court over Olympic Dam mine expansion approval
 
02:09
http://cuttlefishcountry.com Arabunna elder Uncle Kevin Buzzacott discusses his decision to challenge Australia's Commonwealth Environment Minister, Tony Burke, over his 2011 approval of the Olympic Dam mine expansion. Kevin describes (in part) his criticisms of the assessment, particularly the level of uncertainty the approval has permitted, by consistently referring to management plans and documents yet to be drafted. The Olympic Dam mine expansion is trumpeted as a 30 billion dollar development, promising to unlock a trillion dollars worth of copper, uranium, gold and silver. If the expansion proceeds, it is destined to employ thousands and generate billions in royalties as the mine is expanded from it current underground operation to the proposed world's largest open pit. Principally a copper mine, 20% of the mine's profits will come from the sale of uranium, the contentious fuel of nuclear power plants, and an ongoing threat to the further proliferation of nuclear weapons. The desert country near Lake Eyre, where the mine is situated is Kevin's traditional land, and he has inherited the cultural responsibility of looking after the environment there. It pains him to see the damage already done through the poor management of tailings, the extraction of water from the Great Artesian Basin and the export of uranium to fuel nuclear disasters like Fukushima. BHP Billiton's lies suggesting the company will employ 'world's best practise' simply rub salt in his wounds, and those of many more indigenous and otherwise environmentally aware Australians. This story will be further explored in the danimations documentary feature film Cuttlefish Country, due for release in mid 2012.
