How Uranium Becomes Nuclear Fuel
 
05:51
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!

How Is Uranium Mining Conducted in the United States?
 
04:49
Uranium Resources' Mark Pelizza explains how uranium is mined--either through a conventional or in situ uranium mining process--to provide fuel for U.S. nuclear energy facilities. He also discusses where the uranium comes from that is used to power U.S. nuclear plants. For more information on uranium mining, see NEI's website: http://www.nei.org/howitworks/nuclearpowerplantfuel/.

Top 10 Countries with Highest Uranium Production
 
08:20
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.

Exclusive: A Rare Inside Look At India's Uranium Mines
 
02:34
Hidden deep below the green hills in Jharkhand is India's rich uranium resource. At Narwapahar in Jadugoda town, mining operations are highly mechanised, there are no rusty lifts. Here, one can drive into mines through the kilometres of underground highways that leads one to the uranium ore. The ore lies between 70 to 1,000 metres below the ground. To extract the ore, almost 300 to 400 tonnes of rock is blasted, drilled and brought to the surface.

Protection Against Radioactivity in Uranium Mines 1969 US Bureau of Mines
 
25:12
This film from the United States Bureau of Mines presents general descriptions of the hazards of radon daughters in uranium mines, and outlines the environmental control, principles and procedures for mitigating the hazard. Scenes of underground mines show the origin and reason of the hazard, and various methods of ventilation are shown on how to correct the condition. Uranium mining occurred mostly in the southwestern United States and drew many Native Americans and others into work in the mines and mills. Despite a long and well-developed understanding, based on the European experience earlier in the century, that uranium mining led to high rates of lung cancer, few protections were provided by employers or government for US miners before 1962 and their adoption after that time was slow and incomplete. Some US officials and scientists advocated ventilation requirements in US mines as a proactive, preventative measure during the 1950s, on the basis of their knowledge of European experience. Duncan Holaday, an industrial hygienist with the PHS, has generally been recognized as the most prominent advocate for ventilation. He led the effort to obtain measurements of radon in the mines, and he used the data to argue forcefully within the government that ventilation would be effective and was feasible. His arguments achieved only limited success, as there was government resistance to requiring ventilation and his views were not made public at the time. The Atomic Energy Commission (AEC) was an obstacle. In the late 1940s, controversy erupted in the New York Operations Office over the hazards from beryllium and uranium mining. The AEC wrote worker health requirements in contracts with companies that handled beryllium. After conflicting recommendations from staff, it chose not to establish such requirements for uranium. It claimed to lack legal authority, but it did not explain the legal difference between uranium and beryllium. The AEC did not lack knowledge: records of a January 25, 1951, internal meeting of AEC and PHS staff reveal that, on the basis of early measurements, they believed that radon was present in levels that would cause cancer and that ventilation could abate the hazard. Public acknowledgment of this problem was apparently squelched. For instance, Hueper, the scientist who wrote the 1942 review and who was then at the National Cancer Institute, was forbidden to speak in public about his concerns about the health hazard of radon in uranium mines. It is reported that he was even forbidden to travel west of the Mississippi, lest he say too much to the wrong people. The resulting high rates of illness among miners led in 1990 to passage of the Radiation Exposure Compensation Act. For more details, see the outstanding article, The History of Uranium Mining and the Navajo People, in the Sept 2002 American Journal of Public Health at http://www.ajph.org/cgi/reprint/92/9/1410 .

WE DO NOT OWN THE MATERIAL EXCLUSIVELY, BUT HAVE A LICENSE CONTRACT FOR INTERNET STREAMING. If unavailable in your territory, or if you are interested in other license requests (feature movie, television, documentary, commercial...), please contact Javafilms: [email protected] Story The African continent is rapidly developing itself economically. The only bottleneck in this process are readily available resources. Besides money these mainly consist of poor infrastructure and availability of energy, especially electricity. Economically booming countries like for example Uganda still have a lot to gain when a steady supply of power is provided. Nowadays in Uganda the power plants can only cater for roughly 30% of the countries demand and even new hydraulic power projects in the Nile will not solve this problem. Nuclear power therefor seems the most cost effective solution for most of the African nations including Uganda. Western companies such as the French Areva fiercely lobby for more power plants on the continent. But is Atomic Energy the best solution for unstable regimes? And what does Atomic Energy and the mining of uranium mean for the wellbeing and safety of the local population and the environment? Social Interest Ever since the first nuclear reactor was build in Africa in Congo in 1958 there have been safety concerns, cause within the whole process of the production of nuclear energy a lot of things can go wrong, willingly and unwillingly, with possible devastating consequences for people and environment. For instance in 2007 the head of the Congolese research institute was arrested for illegally selling nuclear fuel rods. Also in Niger the highway where the mined uranium is transported on runs through rebel territory associated with Al-Qaida. The war in neighbouring Mali makes this transport even more risky. Besides the risks of fuel rods ending up in the wrong hands the mining of uranium itself poses danger to people and environment as well. Legal and illegal mining operations destroy ecosystems and leave the miners with radiation poisoning . Historical and Political Relevance Nuclear power, the right to enrich uranium and develop the technology to exploit its energy, has always been a difficult point in international politics. In the Cold War the threat mainly came from the war talk and power displays of archenemies the United States and the Soviet Union which both had a gigantic nuclear arsenal. As the cold war ended the threat of a nuclear war declined. However the nuclear disaster in a power plant in Chernobyl a few years earlier proved that the benefits of nuclear power also pose a big potential threat in case of incidents. However, this incident did not stop more countries from starting a nuclear program with a wide range of experiments While in the last decade the interest of the West in Nuclear power seems to decline some new players on the nuclear market, with questionable regimes like Iran and North Korea , are causing much international debate about the right to develop nuclear power. The rapidly developing African continent is in serious need of energy and has always been rich in raw resources to produce energy and is now slowly developing the knowledge to exploit them. The African continent may well be on the verge of a nuclear revolution so the political discussion about the right to use nuclear energy is more relevant than ever. Because not only questionable regimes can pose a potential threat, also war and especially terrorism are extremely dangerous, since it takes a single rocket fired by a single person to blow up a nuclear power plant.

11 Most Massive Mines in the World
 
10:20
From the worlds largest gold mine found on the top of a mountain to the largest diamond mine in the world here are the most massive mines in the world! Subscribe to American EYE! 5.. Asbestos Mine, Canada Also known as the Jeffrey Mine, it’s located in Asbestos, Quebec and it was in operation until 2012. It’s a whopping 2 kilometers wide and 370 meters deep! Check out this thing on google maps and you can tell how completely massive this thing is! It’s the by far the largest asbestos mine in the world. For a long period of time, people would use this mineral to put into their walls and keep their homes from catching on fire! But recently there’s been a link with asbestos and a disease called mesothelioma, which is a lung condition. This is a toxic substance that people should avoid, so obviously this large mine went out of business. The lake at the bottom might look like an inviting blue, but you can bet your bottom dollar, it’s highly toxic! The small town that grew with the thriving asbestos industry feels like they’ve kind of lost their identity once the mine was forced to close, but people do still live there. 4. Mcarthur River Uranium Mine In case you were wondering which mine produces the most uranium in the world, that would be of course the Mcarthur River uranium mine in Saskatchewan Canada. This huge deposit was found in 1988 and finally a mining operation took place in 1997, when it began producing what’s known as Yellowcake. It’s not the kind of yellow cake you’d eat with your grandparents. This stuff has a horrific odor and basically what it is, is concentrated uranium powder which can then be used for powering nuclear reactors. We imagine this powdery substance is quite difficult to get ahold of. There aren’t a ton of photos of this place but, it does produce about 13 percent of the global uranium production across the globe. 3. Diavik Diamond Mine In case you thought it was Africa who had all the massive diamond mines, think again! The Diavik Diamond mine, found in the the northwest territories of Canada is one of the largest producers of diamonds in the Northern hemisphere and this place is pretty crazy! They annually produce 7 million carats of diamonds each year and you better believe it’s not easy to get here. The Diavik mine is found north of the arctic circle and it’s definitely cold! This photo here shows the subarctic landscapes that surround the diamond mine. You thought getting to work in the morning was tough for you? Imagine trying to get to work here! Just recently in 2015, this diamond produced what was known as the Diavik Foxfire 187.7 which is one of the largest rough gem quality diamonds ever produced. 2. Siberian Diamond Mine Also known as the Mirny Mine, The USSR began searching for ways to make to make themselves a more economical stable and independent union. In 1955 the Soviets discovered large diamond deposits at this site in the far away lands of Siberia and many people got to work very quickly in order to help bring wealth to the union. After about 20 years of operations, they finally decided that At one point this mine produced 10 million carats of diamonds a year and reaches a max depth of 524 meters or around 1700 feet making it the 2nd largest excavated hole in the world. The mine is so deep, airspace is closed over the hole due to helicopter crashes caused from the downward flow of air. The construction of this in the frigid conditions of Siberia must have been grueling and downright cruel. Sources state that the machinery used at this mine had to be covered at night or it would freeze Are the diamonds worth freezing to death?! It’s unoperational today but Some claim that there’s still a bunch of diamonds in this mine and the whole thing could be worth about 12 Billion dollars. It’s possible that controlling this diamond is mine is crucial to controlling the price of diamonds across the world. Bingham Copper Mine The bingham copper mine located near Salt Lake City Utah is home to the biggest pit in the world and it’s been in operation since 1903. It’s about 2.5 miles wide and if it were a stadium, it would be able to fit an estimated 9.5 million people. It keeps getting bigger and bigger too! Diligent workers can move about 250,000 tons of rock each day and it’s even become a tourist attraction in recent years before a massive landslide took place. Some claim that this was the biggest non volcanic landslide to take place in North American modern history. This photo we see here shows you the aftermath of this massive landslide and Bingham Copper mine and it makes you wonder how safe some of the conditions at these mines truly are. The landslides were so massive, that they actually triggered a few small earthquakes! Experts estimated that 165 tons of earth slide down from the top of the mine all the way to the bottom.

Energy Fuels’ Mark Chalmers on the US uranium mining industry
 
05:35
March 12, 2018 — “The nuclear industry in the United States has been challenged with natural gas and the increase in renewables lately. We do not want to be greedy here, but we do think that a frontend of the nuclear fuel cycle is required in the United States,” states Mark Chalmers, President & CEO of Energy Fuels Inc. (NYSE American: UUUU | TSX: EFR), in an interview with InvestorIntel’s Jeff Wareham. Jeff Wareham: Mark, uranium and vanadium have both been in the news a lot lately. First of all, can you comment on what is going on in the market and particularly what is going on politically in the U.S.? Mark Chalmers: Uranium itself has historically been a political, kind of, element. We as a company, with Ur-Energy, we filed a Section 232, a trade petition, to limit imports of uranium into the United States. Now Section 232 is quite in the media a lot right now with the steel and aluminum. I think people did not know what Section 232 even meant up until a few days ago when the Trump administration, after a review by the Department of Commerce, is looking at imposing tariffs on imports from various forms from different countries. We as a company we actually started this process about a year ago. We felt that the low level of production in the United States--- The United States is the largest consumer of uranium in the world, but we are only actually producing less than 5% of our requirements. The Section 232 is a trade act that is driven for any type of commodity, like uranium or vanadium or in the cases of steel or aluminum that may have national security implications. That is what we have put in with Ur-Energy. Jeff Wareham: I think that would be a pretty compelling case that uranium is an important strategic element. On that basis, you guys are already a producer. Obviously a U.S. producer would be extremely benefited by any kind of ruling under 232.  Mark Chalmers: Yeah, we would be benefited naturally. But, the thing is that we want to be reasonable with the Section 232. We want to survive as an industry. The nuclear industry in the United States has been challenged with natural gas and the increase in renewables lately. We do not want to be greedy here, but we do think that a frontend of the nuclear fuel cycle is required in the United States. It is really, again, when we talk about national security issues, it is not just Department of Defense. It is really more focused on the nuclear power generation industry for the electricity because 20% of our electricity comes from nuclear. Jeff Wareham: Sometimes people do not regard uranium production as being something that is particularly green. From my understanding of your business you guys provide some very green services, not only in how you process your own materials, but also in cleaning up other projects or other mining operations. Is that correct? Mark Chalmers: Yeah. We have the White Mesa Mill in Utah. It is the only remaining conventional mill in the United States that is operable. We have two sources of revenue with that facility. We have what we call alternate feed, which is basically taking out of spec material or low-level material that we can actually run through the mill and recover the uranium and repackage. We are basically recycling products that had uranium in it...to access the complete interview, click here. Disclaimer: Energy Fuels Inc. is an advertorial member of InvestorIntel Corp.

Why Invest in Nuclear Energy & Uranium Mining?
 
16:17
Uranium went down from $130 in 2007 to $20 today. It may not have bottomed yet but it sure is a spectacular fall already. Nuclear Energy is undervalued in my opinion. It is by far the cheapest form of energy, as well as the cleanest. Accidents need not throw away the baby with the bathwater. Commodities are also at historical low valuations vs stocks. There might be a great investment opportunity here in the making, and a great diversification away from Crypto.

In this remote town you’re either working at the uranium mines or fighting against them | Black Rock
 
27:05
Growing up in English River First Nation, the uranium mines were always part of Tenille Campbell's life. Even though she's lived hundreds of kilometres away from English River since she was 18, the mines have remained an important part of her story — on the day after their wedding, her ex-husband had to fly out to the mines to work for two weeks. But the mines are the only big business in the community. For Tenille, the dream of becoming a writer and photographer meant leaving her hometown for other opportunities. #CBCShortDocs #BlackRock • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • When Tenille speaks about the north, she talks about the northern lights and blueberries. The images she captures are full of beauty and laughter. When she talks about how she always imagined living her life up north, you can understand why. More than a decade after leaving home, Tenille returns an award-winning author and professional photographer. Now, she’s embarking on a new project: telling her community’s story and its complicated relationship with the uranium mines. She’s back to photograph and interview English River’s residents for her gallery show, to showcase the stories and faces of an Indigenous community caught in the boom and bust cycle of the uranium industry. English River First Nation’s history with the uranium industry has deep roots. For some, like Tom Lariviere (who has been working in the mines since the '70s), "the mines have improved the quality of living up here in the north." But not everyone agrees. English River First Nation residents Marius and Candyce Paul have spent the last two decades fighting what they call "the invasion" of the nuclear and uranium industries in the north. They've fought English River’s collaboration deal with the uranium companies, and the nuclear waste dump proposal in their community. They're concerned about the possible contamination of their lands and the possible health impacts on their people, so they've started collecting data on radioactivity in their community. They’ve also established a whistleblower’s hotline for miners to report any issues or concerns that may impact the land or the people at the mines. But in a town where the only significant source of employment is the uranium industry, fighting against it can be a lonely road. Black Rock follows Marius and Candyce Paul on their journey searching for the truth, in an attempt to protect and preserve their lands for their future generations. The film follows the intertwining stories of a remote community, exploring the complexities of being caught between putting food on the table and protecting the land that feeds you.

China-operated uranium mine boosts Namibia's growth
 
01:41
The Husab Uranium Mine in Namibia is one of China's biggest single investments in Africa. The Husab Mine reportedly has a uranium reserve of 300,000 tonnes which is the third largest uranium-only deposit in the world. Analysts say the project is able to produce 7,000 tonnes of uranium oxide each year when fully operational. That will make it the second largest uranium producer in the world after the MacArthur River mine in Canada.

THE PETRIFIED RIVER  URANIUM MINING IN THE WESTERN USA  75674
 
28:14
Support Our Channel : https://www.patreon.com/PeriscopeFilm Made in 1957 by Union Carbide & Carbon company, PETRIFIED RIVER describes the modern romance of the present-day West in the search for uranium. It shows modern uranium prospecting, including prospecting by airplane, as well as mining in the Colorado Plateau. It also discusses the uses of radioactive isotopes at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. Uranium is a chemical element with symbol U and atomic number 92. It is a silvery-white metal in the actinide series of the periodic table. A uranium atom has 92 protons and 92 electrons, of which 6 are valence electrons. Uranium is weakly radioactive because all its isotopes are unstable (with half-lives of the 6 naturally known isotopes, uranium-233 to uranium-238, varying between 69 years and 4.5 billion years). The most common isotopes of uranium are uranium-238 (which has 146 neutrons and accounts for almost 99.3% of the uranium found in nature) and uranium-235 (which has 143 neutrons, accounting for 0.7% of the element found naturally). Uranium has the second highest atomic weight of the primordially occurring elements, lighter only than plutonium. Its density is about 70% higher than that of lead, but slightly lower than that of gold or tungsten. It occurs naturally in low concentrations of a few parts per million in soil, rock and water, and is commercially extracted from uranium-bearing minerals such as uraninite. In nature, uranium is found as uranium-238 (99.2739–99.2752%), uranium-235 (0.7198–0.7202%), and a very small amount of uranium-234 (0.0050–0.0059%). Uranium decays slowly by emitting an alpha particle. The half-life of uranium-238 is about 4.47 billion years and that of uranium-235 is 704 million years,making them useful in dating the age of the Earth. Many contemporary uses of uranium exploit its unique nuclear properties. Uranium-235 has the distinction of being the only naturally occurring fissile isotope. Uranium-238 is fissionable by fast neutrons, and is fertile, meaning it can be transmuted to fissile plutonium-239 in a nuclear reactor. Another fissile isotope, uranium-233, can be produced from natural thorium and is also important in nuclear technology. While uranium-238 has a small probability for spontaneous fission or even induced fission with fast neutrons, uranium-235 and to a lesser degree uranium-233 have a much higher fission cross-section for slow neutrons. In sufficient concentration, these isotopes maintain a sustained nuclear chain reaction. This generates the heat in nuclear power reactors, and produces the fissile material for nuclear weapons. Depleted uranium (238U) is used in kinetic energy penetrators and armor plating. Uranium is used as a colorant in uranium glass producing orange-red to lemon yellow hues. It was also used for tinting and shading in early photography. The 1789 discovery of uranium in the mineral pitchblende is credited to Martin Heinrich Klaproth, who named the new element after the planet Uranus. Eugène-Melchior Péligot was the first person to isolate the metal and its radioactive properties were discovered in 1896 by Henri Becquerel. Research by Otto Hahn, Lise Meitner, Enrico Fermi and others, such as J. Robert Oppenheimer starting in 1934 led to its use as a fuel in the nuclear power industry and in Little Boy, the first nuclear weapon used in war. An ensuing arms race during the Cold War between the United States and the Soviet Union produced tens of thousands of nuclear weapons that used uranium metal and uranium-derived plutonium-239. The security of those weapons and their fissile material following the breakup of the Soviet Union in 1991 is an ongoing concern for public health and safety.

The Utah Uranium Mining Rush That Never Was | NBC Left Field

Following President Trump's shrinking of the protected areas in Utah's Bears Ears National Monument, speculation grew of a land rush and a move to open more uranium mines in the area. But the prospectors hoping to get rich quick never came. What did happen was a rollback of protected lands, another American affront to Native Americans, and a system of claims and permits that makes "land rushes" a web of paperwork and fieldwork.

Iran Saghand Mining Department (SMD), Uranium Mine معدن اورانيوم ساغند يزد ايران
 
25:42
April 10, 2017 (Persian calendar 1396/1/21) Yazd province (استان يزد) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yazd_Province Saghand Uranium Mine (معدن اورانيوم ساغند) Geo coordinate 32°18'46.8"N, 55°31'48"E The Saghand Mine معدن ساغند, located in Yazd يزد in central Iran, is designed to extract low grade hard rock ore bodies through conventional underground mining techniques. The annual estimated production output of the mine is 50 tonnes of uranium. According to IAEA reports, Chinese experts assessed that the mine contains approximately 1,000 tons of uranium. For some perspective on what this means, high-grade ore-bodies can contain several percent uranium (U). Low-grade bodies contain 0.1% U. Concentrations under 0.075% (750 ppm) are generally considered uneconomical to mine. Iran’s ore falls under this category, with concentrations of only 553 ppm. Iran ostensibly began mining at this site on April 9, 2013. ********** The nuclear fuel cycle چرخه سوخت هسته اي, also called nuclear fuel chain زنجيره سوخت هسته اي, is the progression of nuclear fuel through a series of differing stages. It consists of steps in the front end, which are the preparation of the fuel, steps in the service period in which the fuel is used during reactor operation, and steps in the back end, which are necessary to safely manage, contain, and either reprocess or dispose of spent nuclear fuel. If spent fuel is not reprocessed, the fuel cycle is referred to as an open fuel cycle (or a once-through fuel cycle); if the spent fuel is reprocessed, it is referred to as a closed fuel cycle. ********** See all "Iran's Nuclear Fuel Cycle" in these videos: Saghand Mining Department (SMD), Uranium Mine http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pog1GjoDZ7o Uranium Concentrate Powder (YellowCake) production http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3dcpYSrx4Yg Uranium Conversion Facility (UCF) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wPH4KSmT-Po UF6 process & Uranium enrichment centrifuges http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7fjY_3yLO3M Uranium dioxide production & Zirconium Production Plant (ZPP) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dMS80g6laCs Nuclear Fuel Rod & Pellets, Fuel Manufacturing Plant (FMP) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pIzDMuKwy1A

In northern Malawi, Paladin Africa Limited started mining uranium in 2010. Since the start of the initiative, there have been fears of contamination at the Kayerekera mill sites in Karonga district resulting from the chemical processing of ore to produce uranium concentrate. In the midst of all talk, I traveled to their Karonga mine and did the report below. Currently on ‘care and maintenance’ since 2014, the mine is said to continue to pose serious dangers to surrounding communities. Soon, I plan to produce another piece on the disastrous effects the mining of uranium is said to have had on communities surrounding the Kayerekera Mining Site.

DAVE SWEENEY (AUSTRALIA) Australian Conservation Foundation PETER WATTS (AUSTRALIA) Aboriginal representative of the Arabunna People, Co-Chair for Australian Nuclear Free Alliance THE SYMPOSIUM The World Uranium Symposium addressed issues arising from the nuclear fuel chain, from mining uranium to its end-uses and byproducts for civilian or military purposes. Both scientific and community-based, the Symposium was organized around the following themes: health, environment, economy, ethics, governance, human rights and the rights of indigenous peoples. Open to the public, the symposium had hosted more than 300 people per day from 14 to 16 April 2015, and had included local, national and international representatives from the sectors of health, research, industry, education, civil society, policy makers and indigenous communities. local, national and/or international media were present. All presentations of the symposium will be posted in electronic formats (text and / or videos) after the Symposium, in French and / or English. • April 14 (Day 1): Uranium mines and the nuclear life cycle : health and environmental issues • April 15 (Day 2): Civil and military nuclear : ethics, economics and political issues • April 16 (Day 3): Human rights, indigenous peoples' rights and governance issues ORGANIZATIONS INVOLVED The Symposium is jointly organized by Physicians for Global Survival (1985 Nobel Peace Prize), the Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment, Nature Québec, the Canadian Coalition for Nuclear Responsibility and the Coalition pour que le Québec ait meilleure mine. It also receives support from the International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War (Swiss chapter), the First Nations of Quebec and Labrador Sustainable Development Institute, the Cree Nation of Mistissini, MiningWatch Canada, and a number of other local, national and international partners. CONTEXT The Symposium is occurring at a time when many organizations and governments question the future of nuclear power, currently providing about 11% of the world’s electricity. The year 2015 also marks the seventieth anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and the corresponding United Nations negotiations of the Non Proliferation Treaty for the prevention and the abolition of nuclear arms. It will also see the tabling on a new UN treaty on climate change. Canada is one of the largest producers and exporters of uranium worldwide, yet its nuclear energy output is in relative decline. Only two provinces still operate nuclear reactors: Ontario and New Brunswick. 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

Uranium Mining Leaves Toxic Nuclear Legacy on Indigenous Land

The iconic Grand Canyon is the site of a battle over toxic uranium mining. Last year, a company called Energy Fuels Resources was given federal approval to reopen a mine six miles from the Grand Canyon's popular South Rim entrance. A coalition of Native and environmental groups have protested the decision, saying uranium mining could strain scarce water sources and pose serious health effects. Diné (Navajo) tribal lands are littered with abandoned uranium mines. From 1944 to 1986, 3.9 million tons of uranium ore were chiseled and blasted from the mountains and plains of the region. More than 1,000 mines have closed, but the mining companies never properly disposed of their radioactive waste piles, leading to a spike in cancer rates and other health ailments.

Who gets to decide? Filmmaker Suzan Beraza documents the debate in her new film Uranium Drive-In. Rhinos are killed for their horn. But now in South Africa they face a new threat -- coal. Plans for an open cast coal mine on the border of Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Park, home to the largest population in the world of the once endangered white rhino, may bring economic development. However, these plans will also worsen air and water quality and increase poaching and crime. Jeff Barbee reports from South Africa. The indigenous people in Ecuador's Kimsakocha wetlands rely on the land's water for their livelihood -- agriculture and livestock production. But there is gold under the water and foreign mining companies are out to get it. The local people mount a fierce opposition.
