Anti-Nuclear Alliance of Western Australia appealing to EPA about Lynas rare earths and radiation

ANAWA is currently working with the Environmental Defenders Office (EDO) to lodge a referral to the EPA regarding the Lynas operations at Mt Weld and their mining of rare earths. Lynas has made a number of changes to their procedures, which have not gone through the appropriate approvals and they are currently operating under approvals given to them 14 years ago.

  There are major concerns about the amounts of this radioactive substance being transported from Mt Weld to the ports of Fremantle and health & safety issues for those involved in handling the material that will be exported to their controversial processing plant in Malaysia.   ANAWA will be going to the EPA with the EDO lawyer Josie Walker on Tuesday the 28th of February at 10.30 am.

  1. Very concerned about the Lynas radioactive waste going through Western Australia. We see what is happening to China land from radioactive waste from rare earths. This needs to be stopped and certainly to dangerous to go through Fremantle.
