It portrays how over the last 150 years mining has made Australia rich, yet created an unending struggle over who shares in the wealth. It reveals how mining helped forge democracy yet has repeatedly plotted to influence politics and even overthrow democratically elected leaders. Whilst mining has also been deeply damaging to Aboriginal society, ironically in the 21st century, it may be aboriginal people's best hope of economic self-determination.

Welcome to Top10Archive! We live in a day and age where nuclear power is becoming a common need for daily life. In 2011, the Key World Energy Statistics found that 10% of the world's electricity was provided via nuclear power plants; but what, ultimately, fuels these plants to provide power? All across the globe, uranium mines gather the natural resource used as the basis of all nuclear power; and while many countries contribute to the mining of uranium, these 10 countries provide the highest amount per year, based on tonnes mined in 2013.

India's plan for a 'strategic uranium reserve' received a shot in the arm with a joint research team of the city-headquartered Atomic Minerals Directorate (AMD) and Osmania University discovering significant quantity of uranium reserves in the Srisailam forests. The AMD-OU team carried out research in an area spread over 45 sq km around Srisailam sub-basin of Kadapa super basin in Andhra Pradesh. A part of the Kadapa super basin extends over to Telangana state. The team zeroed in on Chennakesavula Gutta and Padra villages using the latest equipment to detect the precious radioactive element. The quality of the uranium mineralization discovered in these two areas is superior and comparable to the one available in Canada and Australia, team members informed. The Uranium Corporation of India has already set up a uranium mining mill at Tummalapalle village in Kadapa district. It has proposed a similar project Lambapur-Peddagattu region in Nalgonda district. A mega nuclear power project has been planned in Srikakulam district and the new discovery in Srisailam is likely to make India self-sufficient in nuclear fuel.

In 2006 the Federal Government announced a plan to build a nuclear waste dump in the Northern Territory. While three sites were initially selected, the only site now under consideration is on Muckaty Station, 120km north of Tennant Creek. Traditional Owners, the NT Government, Unions NT, medical groups and the wider community oppose the proposed waste dump at Muckaty. The Federal Government is attempting to use heavy-handed and undemocratic legislation called the the National Radioactive Waste Management Billto build the dump.At the time of writing (November 2011) the Federal Government has been unsuccessful in attempts to get this contested bill passed by the Senate. What kind of radioactive waste is it? The waste that the Federal Government proposes to dump on the Territory includes: Low-level and short-lived intermediate- level radioactive waste destined for shallow burial. Long-lived intermediate level waste which will be stored above ground as an 'interim' measure until some future government establishes a deep underground geological disposal facility. The Government has made no progress finding a site for disposal of the long-lived intermediate-level waste so 'interim' storage in the NT would last for decades and possibly centuries. Where is the waste coming from and how much is there? Measured by radioactivity, almost all the waste comes from the Lucas Heights nuclear reactor site south of Sydney as spent fuel rods. These spent fuel rods are taken overseas to be re-processed and are on contract to be bought back to Australia in 2014. Measured by volume, Lucas Heights accounts for almost half the waste, lightly contaminated soil stored at Woomera in SA accounts for about half, and very small volumes are stored at various scientific, medical and defence sites around Australia. How should Australia's radioactive waste management be managed? All options for radioactive waste management need to be considered − not just 'remote' repositories. This includes the option of ongoing storage at the Lucas Heights nuclear reactor site on the outskirts of Sydney, operated by the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation (ANSTO). All relevant organisations − including ANSTO, the regulator ARPANSA, the Australian Nuclear Association, and even Federal Resource Minister Martin Ferguson's own department − have acknowledged that ongoing storage at Lucas Heights is a viable option. A site selection process is required, it ought to be based on scientific and environmental criteria, as well as on the principles of community consent. When the federal Bureau of Resource Sciences conducted a preliminary site selection study in the 1990s, based on environmental and scientific criteria, the Muckaty area did not even make the short-list as a ''suitable'' site for a nuclear dump. Yet Muckaty is the only site now under consideration. Nuclear Medicine Many countries have good nuclear medicine services but do not have a nuclear reactor or a nuclear waste dump. As the Medical Association for the Prevention of War says, the government has been 'peddling a lie' by linking the proposed NT dump to nuclear medicine.

He is the author of The Navajo People and Uranium Mining and the associate editor of the Journal of Immigrant and Minority Health. His research includes studies of asthma; the impact of culture and language on health communication; the impact of environmental tobacco smoke; traffic pollution and cardiovascular disease; and the impact of uranium mining and processing on Native Americans. Prof. Brugge and Dr. Caldicott cover how they both started their antinuclear activism with Native peoples in the U.S. and Australia, respectively. Topics discussed in this episode include the health effects of radon, how uranium mining induces lung cancer, the cover-up of the harm caused to Native American uranium miners and their communities, the enlargement of uranium mining operations in Australia and elsewhere, and how Native peoples in many places, from India to Canada to North America and Australia, find themselves in harm's way when their land is found to contain mineable uranium.

CANBERRA, Australia, February 7, 2013 (ENS) -- After 34 years of campaigning to keep uranium mining out of his ancestral land of Koongarra, Djok Senior Traditional Owner Jeffrey Lee sat in the House of Representatives Wednesday to watch this land be protected forever. Environment Minister Tony Burke introduced a bill to repeal the Koongarra Project Area Act -- a 1979 law excluding Koongarra from the original boundaries of Kakadu National Park because of its potential to be the site for a uranium mine. Koongarra in Australia's Northern Territory "In 2010, the Government promised Mr. Lee that we would incorporate Koongarra into Kakadu National Park, to ensure that the threat of mining was banished forever," Burke said. Koongarra is an area of native woodland of great environmental and cultural significance, now incorporated within the boundaries of Kakadu National Park. Kakadu is located within the Alligator Rivers Region of the Northern Territory of Australia, 171 kilometers southeast of the territorial capital, Darwin. The Koongarra uranium deposit is estimated at about 14,000 tonnes. Mining companies, most recently the French company AREVA, have been trying to mine the deposit for decades despite the opposition of traditional owners. Lee said, "This is a great day for me, my country and my culture. My mind is at peace now that I know that there will be no mining at Koongarra and that Djok lands will be protected forever in Kakadu National Park." "My mothers and grandmothers who taught me about the plants and animals, my uncles and aunties who shared their knowledge, to all the elders and my creation ancestors -- I give my humble respect for standing here today," he said. "I have said no to uranium mining at Koongarra because I believe that the land and my cultural beliefs are more important than mining and money. Money comes and goes, but the land is always here, it always stays if we look after it and it will look after us," he said.

SOUNDBITE: (English) Tasnim Aslam, spokeswoman for Pakistan's Ministry of Foreign Affairs: "Resumption of nuclear tests by India would create a serious situation obliging Pakistan to review its position and to take action appropriate and consistent with our supreme national interest." 6. Exterior of foreign ministry building STORYLINE: Pakistan warned against any resumption of nuclear testing by archrival India, suggesting on Monday that Australian plans to sell uranium to New Delhi could start a nuclear arms race in South Asia. India's government says a proposed cooperation pact with the US on civilian nuclear power generation will not constrain its weapons program, including the right to conduct future nuclear tests. "Resumption of nuclear tests by India would create a serious situation obliging Pakistan to review its position and to take action appropriate and consistent with our supreme national interest," said Tasnim Aslam, spokeswoman for Pakistan's Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Aslam also expressed concern at Australian plans to sell uranium to New Delhi, and suggested that Pakistan could expand its own nuclear arsenal in response to any strengthened Indian capability. The nuclear cooperation pact would see the US provide nuclear fuel and know-how to help meet the burgeoning energy needs of India, which in exchange would place its civilian reactors under international monitoring. "I would say we are following closely the controversy that is reflected in these statements both emanating from Washington and Delhi about India's right to conduct nuclear tests in the context of (an) US-India nuclear deal," added Aslam on Monday. Indian Prime Minister, Manmohan Singh, last week rejected claims by political opponents and parties that are allied with the government, but opposed to the deal, that it would give Washington leverage over Indian foreign policy and bar future nuclear tests. While the deal covers only civilian nuclear cooperation, American critics say it could free up nuclear fuel, including uranium, which can be used in nuclear warheads. Pakistani commentators worry that the deal signals a shift of US support from Islamabad, a close ally in Washington's campaign against terror, to India, with which Pakistan has fought three wars since the two countries gained independence from Britain 60 years ago. Aslam said that Pakistan, whose nuclear technology has in the past been leaked to countries including Iran and North Korea, also wanted to develop its civilian nuclear power program under international safeguards.

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

Anyone find it strange the US Government, Department of Interior has banned the new mining of uranium in the US but is going to reopen an existing mine already contaminating the air, water, environment of the Grand Canyon in June during Jade Helm operations? Since the announcment PNC Bank, the sponsor of opening the mines has not said they are going to halt their reopening of the mine. And the Department of Interior has not said for them to even though even indiginous people in the area could be affected and people all the way into Mexico, Califonia, Texas, Utah, Arizona and many others. Also what about the threat of ISIS? What if they got the mine and started taking uranium? I know it would probably be bombed before anything could be done, but its already a known environmental hazard in the region why reopen it during the largest American training exercise in history on American soil?

Nuclear technology is constantly in the news. So how exactly do you make nuclear fuel? Special thanks to Life Noggin for animating this video! Check them out: http://www.youtube.com/lifenoggin Read More: Fuel Cycle Facilities http://www.nrc.gov/materials/fuel-cycle-fac.html “The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) regulates uranium recovery facilities that mill uranium; fuel cycle facilities that convert, enrich, and fabricate it into fuel for use in nuclear reactors, and deconversion facilities that process the depleted uranium hexafluoride for disposal.” Uranium processing http://www.britannica.com/EBchecked/topic/619232/uranium-processing “Uranium (U), although very dense (19.1 grams per cubic centimetre), is a relatively weak, nonrefractory metal. Indeed, the metallic properties of uranium appear to be intermediate between those of silver and other true metals and those of the nonmetallic elements, so that it is not valued for structural applications.” About Nuclear Fuel Cycle https://infcis.iaea.org/NFCIS/About.cshtml “Nuclear Fuel Cycle can be defined as the set of processes to make use of nuclear materials and to return it to normal state. It starts with the mining of unused nuclear materials from the nature and ends with the safe disposal of used nuclear material in the nature.” Nuclear Fuel Processes http://www.nei.org/Knowledge-Center/Nuclear-Fuel-Processes “Nuclear power plants do not burn any fuel. Instead, they use uranium fuel, consisting of solid ceramic pellets, to produce electricity through a process called fission.” ____________________ DNews is dedicated to satisfying your curiosity and to bringing you mind-bending stories & perspectives you won't find anywhere else!

sowingthewinds 31.10.2012 Stoping uranium mining is the first step to nuclear shut down worldwide. To Peace! Mirror: NibiruMagick2012 http://youtu.be/Ino-6hzMHxo Originally pploaded by Mo'awia Bajis on Oct 12, 2011 In Europe nuclear energy is more and more often celebrated as saving the climate. Clearly, nuclear power plants need uranium. The aim is to comprehensively illustrate the opportunities and risks posed by nuclear energy, whilst paying particular attention to uranium mining. Australia has the world's largest deposits of this resource. We will travel to the "land down under" to exemplify where uranium comes from, where it goes to and what is leftover from it. There is plutonium (used mostly together with uranium) and thorium. And by now there is just one thorium nuclear reactor in India. (what concerns nuclear fusion, deuterium and tritium could be use, but this is just hypothetical). By now the most used combustible for the nuclear energy production is uranium and the world has many problems and risks because of this. This film is about uranium and its use for the nuclear energy production. It doesn't want to be comprehensive of everything concerning nuclear reactors. And it is a very good film, based on a accurate inquiry about uranium. Source video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pnW0N_gJiTA Thank You All for watching..keep educating, share information, mirror!

"Muckaty Voices" is a short film capturing community resistance to an Australian government plan to dump radioactive waste at Muckaty Station, 120 kilometres north of Tennant Creek in the Northern Territory. The area is being assessed by the federal government for a low and long-lived intermediate level radioactive waste facility, despite sustained opposition from Aboriginal Traditional Owners, pastoralists and the NT government and community. Muckaty was nominated in 2007 as a possible dump site by the Northern Land Council and a small group of Traditional Owners hoping for a combination of cash and improved services like roads, housing and education. Many other Traditional Owners remain opposed to the plan and have been highly critical of the process and approach taken by Resource Minister Martin Ferguson. The governments push for Muckaty has sparked widespread criticism from trade unions, national health and environment groups and Indigenous groups, including the Central Land Council. In Opposition the Labor party described the former Howard governments waste dump laws as 'draconian', 'sordid' and 'arrogant' however in government Labor have borrowed heavily from the Howard legislation. Labors repackaged dump laws are in clear conflict with their policies and 2007 election promises on radioactive waste management. They suspend key Aboriginal heritage and environmental protections and override any Commonwealth, State or Territory laws that could delay or frustrate the dump. To add insult to radioactive injury the Muckaty nomination is not subject to procedural fairness or judicial review. Traditional Owner and dump critic Dianne Stokes told a Senate Inquiry in April 2010, "We made the video throughout the Warlmanpa land. It is all of the Milwayi story. We wanted to show this DVD to the public and the people here in this Senate Inquiry because of the place where the proposed dump site area is going to be sited... Along with that, we have some songs and dances to represent the country". The film was produced for the Muckaty Traditional Owners by Enlightning Productions, with the support of the Beyond Nuclear Initiative. www.beyondnuclearinitiative.wordpress.com.

We Are The Land, Uranium Mining in the Black Hills South Dakota Director / Editor, Christopher Crosby Producers, Karla LaRive, Susan Watt and the Institute of Range and American Mustang Governments and the uranium industry say the mining and milling of uranium provides high-paying and much-needed jobs in some of the most remote areas of the country, with manageable environmental risks. But it's an industry that has long attracted its share of controversy. This is a major concern for the Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary in western South Dakota, and other residents including environmental and conservation groups. The Sierra Club of South Dakota warns that water pollution will be a major concern if the mining company Powertech is given a permit to mine for uranium. Shirley Frederick, with the Sierra Club's Black Hills Group, says there's a high likelihood that aquifers will become polluted if an injection-well recovery system is used to mine the ore. "It's a huge potential for contamination of groundwater." Powertech Inc USA has submitted its uranium mining application to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission and it can be viewed at the NRC website. The NRC has announced a time period for interested individuals to voice their concerns regarding the uranium mine's impacts to the environment. This proposed uranium mine will be the first time folks can be heard under the new GEIS. The Institute of Range and American Mustang (IRAM) founded by Dayton O. Hyde in 1988 is a 501 © 3 non-profit corporation registered in the state of South Dakota. IRAM owns 13,000 acres of private land dedicated to range preservation and a balanced ecosystem. IRAM's finest gift is The Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary, whose purpose is to provide not only freedom for unadoptable and unwanted wild horses, but also a research area dedicated to solving wild horse herd management that will contribute to the well-being of wild horses everywhere. http://wildmustangs.com

It was originally built in 1982 as a closed town to house the community living at Jabiru East near the Ranger Uranium Mine eight kilometres away. Both the mine and the town are completely surrounded by Kakadu National Park.  Overview Jabiru Township is thirteen square kilometres in size. The town is Owned by the Director of National Parks and Wildlife as freehold. From which a headlease is held by the Jabiru Town Development Authority. The J.T.D.A. subleases to the mining company, government agencies and private business. The head lease expires in 2021. The J.T.D.A delegated local government responsibility to the Jabiru Town Council. The Northern Territory Government is in the process of amalgamating Jabiru Town Council into the West Arnhem Shire in 2008. Jabiru At the 2001 census, Jabiru had a population of 1,521. Apart from the Ranger Mine, Jabiru's most notable industries are tourism (it is the commercial and accommodation hub of Kakadu National Park), and Aboriginal arts and culture. Jabiru features a small town plaza that includes a video souvenir shop, a supermarket, bank, tackle shop, cafe, hairdresser, post office, news agency, bank and bakery (behind the fire station) as well as government, Northern Land Council offices, Magistrates Courts and emergency services (Police, Fire and Ambulance). During the Wet season (October to April), Jabiru experiences heavy rain that often results in wide spread flooding along the Arnhem Highway and Kakadu Highway. During the 2006-2007 Jabiru had its biggest wet season cutting both highways. The Arnhem Highway was cut off for several weeks as the West Aligator bridge was severely damaged. Jabiru town is administered by the Jabiru Town Council, whose council chambers are in the Town Plaza.
