Uranium mining is linked to the production of some of the world’s most toxic and long-lasting industrial wastes and the proliferation of the world’s most destructive weapons.
The NSW Government has ended a 26–year ban on uranium exploration in NSW and is poised to allow mining for the first time. The government is assessing about 40 expressions of interest from companies including resource giant BHP, Carpentaria Exploration, Marmota Energy and Iluka Resources, and is poised to invite companies to explore.
Uranium mining is linked to the production of some of the world’s most toxic and long-lasting industrial wastes and the proliferation of the world’s most destructive weapons. It is also a direct threat to workers’ safety and the long-term health of our environment and communities.
We remain staunchly opposed to uranium mining, which makes little economic sense and leaves a lasting radioactive legacy. That’s why we have endorsed the NSW Uranium Free Charter, which has the support of more than 15 environment and health groups and unions.
