Antinuclear

Australian news, and some related international items

Australia touted as global centre for uranium industry

in WA  last week the state Labor Party announced it would review its anti-nuclear stance, with a report due to be released in June………nuclear power and the uranium industry is not going to be hit as hard as many thought even a fortnight ago.

Uranium watch shows the future is still nuclear, Sydney Morning Herald James KirbyMarch 27, 2011 “..….Australia is a global centre of uranium production. At the moment it has only three mines producing a combined volume of about 8000 tonnes a year, but the official forecasts from government agency ABARES is that this output will roughly double within four years.

Much of this expanded production may come from Western Australia where BHP has substantial deposits. There has been political objection to uranium production in WA but last week the state Labor Party announced it would review its anti-nuclear stance, with a report due to be released in June.

Clearly there is a sense – tentative still – that nuclear power and the uranium industry is not going to be hit as hard as many thought even a fortnight ago….Uranium watch shows the future is still nuclear
