How Is Uranium Mining Conducted in the United States?
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/.

CBS created The Search, an educational series produced by the Public Affairs Department, in the 1950s to share scientific research with viewers in an easy-to-understand manner. The 26-episode series aired over 1954 and 1955. This episode, “Colorado School of Mines: Uranium Prospecting and Mining, Golden Colorado,” is hosted by Charles Romine and shows all the phases of the uranium rush happening on the Colorado Plateau. The film begins with footage of atomic bombs detonating (00:50; 01:08) as Romine narrates the incredible power of atomic energy that can be used for destruction or for helping human life. The key to atomic power is uranium, and Romine (01:47) takes viewers on a tour of mining uranium on the Colorado Plateau. Romine visits with Professor Paul Keating, a pioneer in uranium fields, who explains the geology of uranium and some of its early uses by the Ute and Navajo Indians. Next, Romine meets with prospectors to learn about the early stages of mining. He speaks with a prospector who owns a mine on Davis Mesa (04:28); the prospector explains how to stake a claim (05:19). Romine then goes to the Montrose County courthouse (05:48) where he learns how to file a claim for mining. Afterward, Romine visits with a successful miner in Grand Junction (07:49) and learns how to start a mine, including financing one. One way to finance is through selling stock; the film shows the Salt Lake Stock Exchange (11:26) where people are speculating on stocks. Romine travels to the Colorado School of Mines (12:19) to learn about the university’s Prospector Service, observing the samples sent in to the lab (12:46). The lab identifies what the minerals or metals are in the samples, but also allays the samples, determining the amount of mineral or metal, using instruments such as the Geiger counter (13:33). A lab technician explains how a Geiger counter works (14:54). Next, Romine observes an exploration operation, watching mining equipment in action (16:48) and going on an aerial survey (18:44) to locate likely uranium deposits. Once a site is located, the operation builds roads (19:42) into the sides of the mesas and create a functional camp on top (20:06) with their own testing laboratory (20:32). Once the exploration operation determines that the mine has commercial-grade uranium, large-scale mining operations commence, such as the U.S. Uranium Corporation in Paradox Valley (21:10). The episode concludes with Romine and Keating discussing mining uranium and the future of uranium.

Niger, la bataille de l'uranium - Documentaire Enquête
La course effrénée aux matières premières a remis au goût du jour le nucléaire. L'uranium du Niger, 4ème producteur mondial, il y a peu uniquement exploité par la société française Areva, est devenu un enjeu stratégique convoité par différentes puissances. Aujourd'hui, l'exploitation de ce minerai a gravement pollué les sites. En dépit des affirmations d'Areva, la ville d'Arlit, située près des mines à ciel ouvert, est contaminée, provoquant cancers, maladies pulmonaires ou de la peau, parmi les anciens mineurs et les habitants. Si la majorité de la population manifeste pacifiquement son mécontentement, en revanche des groupes de Touaregs ont pris les armes. Craignant que ce mouvement ne prenne un important poids politique, le gouvernement de Niamey a bouclé la zone, interdit l'accès aux journalistes et empèche la rébellion touarègue d'obtenir une tribune internationale. Plusieurs journalistes français et nigériens ont été emprisonnés pour avoir tenté de contourner cette interdiction. Pour la première fois une enquête sur place, auprès des Touaregs rebelles, des Nigériens, des experts et d'Areva permet de lever le voile sur la vérité.

11 Most Massive Mines in the World
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.

Téhéran inaugure deux nouvelles mines d'uranium
http://fr.euronews.com/ L'Iran a inauguré ce mardi deux nouvelles mines d'uranium ainsi qu'un centre de traitement du minerai. Les deux mines sont situées dans le centre du pays. Le minerai ainsi extrait des mines servira à la production de ce que les experts appelent le "yellow cake", du concentré d'uranium utilisé dans les centrifugeuses justement pour enrichir l'uranium. Le président Mahmoud Ahmadinejad s'est félicité que désormais l'Iran "(contrôle) l'ensemble de la chaîne de production de l'énergie nucléaire". Les autorités ont engagé un programme nucléaire, officiellement à des fins civiles, mais les Occidentaux et Israël soupçonnent Téhéran de vouloir en fait se doter de l'arme atomique. Les discussions menées entre l'Iran et la communauté internationale n'ont jusque-là rien donné. Le vice-président du parlement iranien, Mohammad Reza Bahonar, a indiqué que son pays "n'(était) pas opposé aux négociations dès lors qu'il y a réellement discussion, que ces discussions sont justes et qu'elles servent les intérêts de chacun". Pour prouver que ce programme à des visées civiles, les autorités ont annoncé ce mardi, là aussi en grandes pompes, la production de plusieurs médicaments radioisotopes, utiliisés dans le traitement des cancers.

Real photos of uranium mine
Real photos of uranium mine Hello! Now I want to show an eerie and radioactive place, namely Lermontov uranium mine No. 1. Arrange for more convenient, let's go! A bit of a summary: today we will go to the enterprise that produced uranium. It is located on Mount Beshtau, near the town of Lermontov, Stavropol Territory. Production "on canned food" since 1975. Today it is of enormous interest to industrial tourists. Year of the mine: 1952. The ore that was mined there was taken to the Almaz hydrometallurgical plant. The whole process of work was led by LP Beria himself. This object consisted of 50 galleries, which were located on twelve horizons. That's all. It remains only to guess what "hell" was there for the workers. All the most interesting photos of people's lives on completely different topics and tastes of people you can see on our channel. Videos are added every day, so every day new funny, zhudkie, scary and interesting collections of photos you can find for yourself here. We wish you a pleasant viewing! https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCTJValMQ8JSbvmlcwtTIP2Q

Ep.39 Wentworth Valley URANIUM MYSTERY MINE
EPISODE 39: Based on a tip from a Subscriber, we head out into the Wentworth mountains to seek out an alleged uranium mine adit from the 1940's. With no official records found on this location, we think very few people know of this adit ! ... (MORE INFO BELOW) We are a group of Abandoned Mine explorers in Nova Scotia. Abandoned Mine Hunting is somewhat of a cross between the hobby of urban exploration, caving (spelunking), and history enthusiast. If this is your kind of thing, be sure to subscribe so you will always be informed of each new episode. IF YOU KNOW OF AN ABANDONED MINE IN ATLANTIC CANADA, we'd love to hear from you. Send a private message. We may just come and do an explore and episode featuring your site ! ** BEST VIEWED using the YouTube app on a full size SmartTV ** SPECIAL NOTE: While this type of exploration is almost always kilometers back in deep forest, it cannot always be guaranteed that the land we are hiking is public (Crown). These forgotten old mines/claims are almost always over 100 years old. It is also common that most mine workings have some kind of natural cave-in covering their mouth, after nearly a century of erosion. So some explores may involve preparation of clearing that cave-in, and/or dealing with letting spring water (flooding) out of the adits. These facts, along with the inherent danger of abandoned mines, force us to remain anonymous. We are responsible for our own risks & actions (not yours), but be clear we are not promoting this activity. Only showing you what we do. As with any typical Urban Exploration type channel, our faces and commentary will always be masked. If you are seeing an Episode, it means we are already weeks or month(s) finished with that site and never going back. The delay is intentional, as nothing shown here will be in realtime. It cannot be stressed enough - abandoned mines or mine sites can pose a ton of lethal threats. *We are not kids looking for kicks* Keep in mind that our group is made up of responsible adults, each with specific skills, and cross-Canada experience with over 100+ mine walks. Most 10 times larger and deeper than will ever be found in Nova Scotia! Specific research is always done beforehand. Required equipment and backups are a must. While it is indeed possible to safely explore an abandoned mine, DO NOT ENTER A MINE without being experienced, or going with an experienced explorer. If you don't know what you're doing, STAY OUT STAY ALIVE is the best policy. #ExploringAbandonedMines #MineExploring #AbandonedMines

Namibia's Uranium Rush
Uranium mining companies have been exploring the arid country of Namibia looking to open new mines. Rössing, a Rio Tinto mine has already been operational for more than 30 years. The implications this mine and future operations is explored from the perspective of the communities living nearby. Through this documentary and two reports (http://www.criirad.org/mines-uranium/namibie/uranium-mining-namibia.html), the EJOLT (www.ejolt.org) team working on nuclear energy sheds light on the dangers of uranium mining in Namibia. Two NGOs in Namibia (Earthlife Namibia and LaRRI), a French independent laboratory specialised in radiation (CRIIRAD) and team coordinator Marta Conde (UAB) partnered to produce this remarkable set of action oriented resources. After a public event on the 10th April 2014 in London -- together with other activists from Madagascar, Papua New Guinea and the US who are also impacted by the activities of Rio Tinto -- an article appeared in The Guardian (http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2014/apr/15/uranium-workers-dying-cancer-rio-tinto-namibia-mine). This event was organised prior to the Annual General Meeting (AGM) of Rio Tinto that took place on the 15th April 2014. In the AGM, Roger Moody from PARTIZANS presented the results of the study carried out by Earthlife and LaRRI on the impact of uranium mining on workers. The EJOLT project (2011-15) has received funding from the European Union's Seventh Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement no 266642. The views and opinions expressed in the website and in all EJOLT publications and documentaries including the Atlas reflect the authors' view and the European Union is not liable for any use that may be made of the information contained therein.

Les conditions de travail dans une mine d'extraction d'uranium | Scidev.net Afrique sub-saharienne
Le Niger éclaire au moins une ampoule française sur cinq, grâce à l'uranium extrait de son sous-sol. La compagnie française Areva exploite l'uranium nigérien à partir de deux mines situées dans la région d'Arlit. La société est en train de renégocier la licence d'exploitation accordée par le gouvernement nigérien. Après deux ans de négociations infructueuses avec Niamey, la licence précédente a en effet expiré au mois de décembre. Le gouvernement cherche à augmenter les redevances qu'il perçoit sur ​​les revenus de l'exploitation de l'uranium. Areva affirme que les demandes de la partie nigérienne risquent d'affecter son chiffre d'affaires. Pendant ce temps, comme le montre ce reportage d'Himadou Amadou, des ex-employés d'Areva se plaignent de diverses maladies qu'ils imptent aux activités d'extraction d'uranium.

Uranium Mine in Niger Taken Over by French Forces Amid Mali Battles
02/04/2013 French troops have been called to protect one of Niger's biggest uranium mines as security fears spike. Analyst John Laughland tells RT, that France taking the military lead in Mali and coming to Niger might be a sign of a continent-size interest. Niger's President Issoufou asked his counterpart Hollande for military help after the recent hostage crisis at an Algerian gas plant and over the growing threat of militant attacks since France launched its Operation Serval in neighboring Mali. French company Areva plays a major part in mining in Niger, the world's fifth-largest producer of uranium. The company gets much of its uranium from the two mines it operates in the country, at Arlit and Imouraren. Arlit was attacked by militants three years ago and four hostages -- three French nationals among them -- are still being held.Asked if he could confirm that French Special Forces are now guarding the uranium mine, President Issoufou told channel TV5: "Absolutely I can confirm." Niger's uranium mines are a major source of raw material for French nuclear power plants, so observers wonder if energy resources are a factor in the West's increased interest in the African continent. For more on that, RT talks to the director of studies at the Institute of democracy and cooperation in Paris, John Laughland. http://LeakSource.wordpress.com http://twitter.com/LeakSourceNews

Just to get to the mines Raphael has to travel the 150 Kilometres from Kabul to Panjshir, right through Taliban kidnap country. When he gets there he finds an industry in the dark ages, where homemade pyrotechnics are exploded in poorly dug mineshafts, killing many miners and ruining the quality of up to 75% of the stones they dig. "If you see the damage being done to these stones... so much is lost", Yama Torabi from Integrity Watch Afghanistan tells us. The government here remains hopelessly out of touch with the industry that "still (uses) a mining law adopted 100 years ago". But as the country prepares for elections and Europeans like Raphael open up the gem trade here, could this be a beacon of hope for the future?

Shinkolobwe Uranium*Manhattan Project*Katanga Province*Democratic Republic of the Congo.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Katanga_Province https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shinkolobwe Shinkolobwe is the name of a town and a mine in the Katanga province of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), located near the larger town of Likasi and about 120 miles northwest of Lubumbashi. Around 15,000 people live in the town. The mine produced uranium ore for the Manhattan Project. It was officially closed in 2004. The mineral deposit was discovered in 1915 by Robert Rich Sharp (1881-1958). The mine was worked from 1921 onwards. Uranium-bearing ore was initially exported to Belgium for the extraction of radium. The United States used Shinkolobwe's uranium resources to supply the Manhattan Project to construct the atomic bomb in World War II. Edgar Sengier, then director of Union Minière du Haut Katanga, had stockpiled 1,200 tonnes of uranium ore in a warehouse on Staten Island, New York. This ore and an additional 3,000 tonnes of ore stored above-ground at the mine was purchased by Colonel Ken Nichols for use in the project. Nichols wrote: Our best source, the Shinkolobwe mine, represented a freak occurrence in nature. It contained a tremendously rich lode of uranium pitchblende. Nothing like it has ever again been found. The ore already in the United States contained 65 percent U3O8, while the pitchblende aboveground in the Congo amounted to a thousand tons of 65 percent ore, and the waste piles of ore contained two thousand tons of 20 percent U3O8. To illustrate the uniqueness of Sengier’s stockpile, after the war the MED and the AEC considered ore containing three-tenths of 1 percent as a good find. Without Sengier’s foresight in stockpiling ore in the United States and aboveground in Africa, we simply would not have had the amounts of uranium needed to justify building the large separation plants and the plutonium reactors. The mine was closed in 1939 and flooded. The US Army sent a squad from its Corps of Engineers to reopen the mine, expand the aerodromes in Léopoldville (now Kinshasa and Elizabethville (now Lubumbashi), and extend the port at Matadi, on the Congo River. Between 1942 and 1944, about 30,000 tons of uranium ore were sold to the US Army. On July 18, 2006 the DRC Sanctions Committee, (United Nations Security Council Committee Established Pursuant to Resolution 1533 (2004), to give it its full name) released a report dated June 15, 2006, which stated that artisanal mining for various minerals continues at the Shinkolobwe mine: 149. During an investigation into alleged smuggling of radioactive materials, the Group of Experts has learned that such incidents are far more frequent than assumed. According to Congolese experts on radioactive materials, organs of State security have, during the past six years, confiscated over 50 cases containing uranium or cesium in and around Kinshasa. The last significant incident occurred in March 2004 when two containers with over 100 kilograms of stable uranium-238 and uranium-235 were secured. American interest in the Shinkolobwe mine for the purpose of developing of nuclear weapons led to the implementation of extensive security measures. Shinkolobwe's location was removed from maps and journalists were denied access to the mine and official information. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Krishnaswamy_Sundarji In 1963 he served in the UN mission in the Congo, where he was chief of staff of the Katanga command and was mentioned in dispatches for his gallantry. It was about this time when India had tested its own Nuclear bomb. General Sundarji had long been an advocate of a nuclear policy, and now emerged as an articulate military spokesman for nuclear policy. In 1984, he led Operation Blue Star, intended to evict Sikh extremists who had occupied the Golden temple in Amritsar. The Indian army marched into the gurudawara with their boots off. He was to later say - "We went inside with humility in our hearts and prayers on our lips". According to his wife, Sundarji emerged a changed man after this operation. In 1986, he was appointed the Chief of Army Staff. After taking over as the Army Chief, he wrote a letter to his soldiers warning of deteriorating standards, and the evil of sycophancy. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d9D6coHoVaU On August 9, 2006 the Sunday Times published a report claiming that Iran was seeking to import "bomb-making uranium" from the Shinkolobwe mine., quoting the UN report of July 18, 2006. This report gives "Tanzanian customs officials" as its sole source for their claim that the uranium was destined for processing in the former Soviet republic of Kazakhstan via the Iranian port of Bandar Abbas. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bandar_Abbas https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bushehr https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bushehr_Nuclear_Power_Plant https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/W88

How Uranium Becomes Nuclear Fuel
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!

La vie à proximité d'une mine d'uranium | Scidev.Net - Afrique sub-saharienne
Le Niger éclaire au moins une ampoule française sur cinq, grâce à l'uranium extrait de son sous-sol. La compagnie française Areva exploite l'uranium nigérien à partir de deux mines situées dans la région d'Arlit. La société est en train de renégocier la licence d'exploitation accordée par le gouvernement nigérien. Après deux ans de négociations infructueuses avec Niamey, la licence précédente a en effet expiré au mois de décembre. Le gouvernement cherche à augmenter les redevances qu'il perçoit sur les revenus de l'exploitation de l'uranium, tandis que les populations locales multiplient les manifestations contre le groupe français. Dans ce reportage d'Himadou Amadou, SciDev.Net vous propose un aperçu de la vie des populations locales qui se plaignent des effets nocifs des activités d'extraction d'uranium sur la santé publique.

Philippe Cazal (association Survie) - Niger : mines d'uranium et néocolonialisme
La France importe 100 % de l'uranium utilisé dans ses réacteurs nucléaires. Celui-ci est extrait dans des mines à l'étranger (Niger, Namibie, Kazakhstan, Canada...) puis soumis à toute une série d'opérations industrielles sur le territoire français. Philippe Cazal (association Survie) et Bruno Chareyron (CRIIRAD) lèvent le voile sur les pollutions liées aux mines d'uranium et aux usines méconnues, implantées en France, qui l'utilisent pour fabriquer le combustible nucléaire.

WUS2015 Black magic? Health issues & Jadugoda uranium mines in India
SHAKEEL UR RAHMAN (INDIA) Indian Doctors for Peace and Development SHRI PRAKASH (INDIA) National Award winning filmmaker Film maker from the uranium mining area Jadugoda 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
