Environmental impacts of uranium mining in Australia

2018-7-13  In the past, uranium mining in Australia has certainly delivered some poor environmental impacts. The Rum Jungle mine is a stand-out example of a poorly regulated mining operation leading to legacy environmental impacts that are difficult and costly to remediate. This is particularly due to acid-rock drainage processes, not unique to uranium ...

Uranium mining in Australia: Environmental impact ...

2003-9-15  Abstract. The mining and export of uranium and the impacts (and risks) of the nuclear industry have long been a contentious issue in Australia. The ongoing debate primarily relates to the established and potential dangers of ionizing radiation released to the environment from nuclear facilities, such as uranium mines or research reactors. By 2002, three uranium milling projects are operating with a further seven having been operated in the past 50 years, including numerous smaller mines. A critical aspect of the operation of a mine and/or mill is the ionizing radiation rates before, during and after a project has ceased. A number of estimates have previously been made of the environmental releases from Australian projects, such as environmental impact statements and the UNSCEAR 1993 data (although there is some controversy as to the quality of the data and assumptions used in this analysis). In order to assess the environmental impacts of ionizing radiation releases from nuclear facilities, such as radon gas or soil and water quality, it is necessary to compile and quantify these changes based on measured data from the various sites around Australia.
