2019-6-17  Uranium occurs naturally in the ground, but the uranium deposit at Cole Hill is extremely poor quality, which means a mining operation would require an unusually extensive about of excavation of earth and rock. Such a massive earth-moving operation would expose uranium to air and water, which would in turn release radiation into the environment.

Environmental impacts of uranium mining in Australia

2018-7-13  Nonetheless, uranium mining can be and is undertaken without elevated levels of radioactivity that may cause negative health impacts for either workers or the environment. Australia is a good example, with stringent safety protocols now in place. The Australian National Radiation Dose Register confirms that average additional worker dose in the Australian uranium industry is ~one-half of the additional dose of professional airline pilots and ~1/8th the normal background dose in Cornwall, UK.18 In India, examination of a mine found return to background levels of radioactivity only a short distance from the embankment of the tailings facility.19 In Spain, radon concentrations have been -found to be two-to-ten times lower in operating uranium mines

Abstract. The use of the ’in situ leach’ technique of uranium mining is a new development in Australia’s expanding uranium industry. To date there have been three sites of pilot leach mines at Beverley (1998) and Honeymoon (1982, 1998-2000) in South Australia and at Manyingee (1985) in Western Australia.
