Wiluna + Lake Maitland Uranium Mine Proposals: Toro Energy’s uranium plans go from bad to worse

logo CCWAConservation Council of Western Australia campaign: 

Toro Energy has released new plans to include a uranium mine at Lake Maitland and Millipede to the Wiluna uranium proposal. CCWA is calling on the EPA to re-assess the whole project incorporating plans for four mines across two lake systems – including 6.9 million litres of water a day and generating 50 million tonnes of radioactive mine waste – and to consider the impact of Toro’s other three deposits in the region which they hope to add to the Wiluna proposal.

(Toro’s latest proposal is open for public comment until February 8, 2016. On January 6, 2016, CCWA launched an online action against the latest proposal to mine uranium at Wiluna in the East Murchison/ Northern Goldfields – interested readers are invited to send online submissions opposing the proposal to the Environmental Protection Authority of Western Australia.
