The farming property Napandee near the town of Kimba was announced as the site of the radioactive facility on Saturday.

But the No Radioactive Waste on Agricultural Land in Kimba or SA committee says the community consultation process was flawed.

“Those opposed to the facility have had no choice but to fight, at every opportunity, for our legitimate concerns to be heard,” president Peter Woolford said…..

Federal Resources Minister Matthew Canavan said a decision on the site would be announced soon.
