    Nontechnical Summary. I n recent years, there has been renewed interest in mining uranium in the Commonwealth of Virginia. However, before any mining could begin, Virginia’s General Assembly would have to rescind a statewide moratorium on uranium mining that has been in effect since Forty years ago the uranium mining industry like the other mining industries was labour-intensive. The methods for exploration, mining and milling were, by today's standards, rather primitive, and environmental concerns were of low importance. The management of uranium mines and mills was simple, the demand was defined, and the prices.

Nov 02,  · The modern uranium mining industry began in the s primarily to produce uranium for weapons and later for nuclear fuel. EPA's Uranium Location Database, with information provided by other federal, state, and tribal agencies, includes 15, mine locations with known or potential uranium occurrence in 14 western states.

The worldwide production of uranium in amounted to 60, tonnes. Kazakhstan, Canada, and Australia are the top three producers and together account for 70% of world uranium production.

Abstract. The review presents a short discussion of the principal adverse effects of uranium mining and milling on the environment: release of radionuclides and toxic elements with atmospheric and liquid effluents from uranium mines and mills, dispersion of radionuclides with and from solid wastes produced by uranium mining and milling, and contamination of ground waters from in situ leaching Cited by: 8.

Uranium mining and processing are associated with a wide range of potential adverse human health risks. Some of these risks arise out of aspects of uranium mining and processing specific to that enterprise, whereas other risks apply to the mining sector generally and still others are linked more broadly to large-scale industrial or construction activities.

Dec 13,  · Uranium is the primary fuel for nuclear reactors and must be managed properly, in a safe and sustainable manner. Recent annual production of natural uranium world-wide has been between 55, and 65, tons of uranium metal, similar to the fuel demand.

Additionally, thorium is also being investigated as a potential alternate source of nuclear fuel.

Inthe President of the Navajo Nation, Joe Shirley, Jr., signed the Diné Natural Resources Protection Act which banned uranium mining and processing on Navajo land.

After signing the law, President Shirley stated, "As long as there are no answers to cancer, we shouldn't have uranium mining on the Navajo Nation.

There are, however, some technical issues to be resolved before thorium can be considered as a fuel for Australia s future. If these technical issues can be resolved, residual environmental concerns of mining, handling and storage of radioactive materials will still make the decision to use any thorium-based fuel cycle a political one.
