Environmental impacts of uranium mining in Australia
In the past, uranium mining in Australia has certainly delivered some poor environmental impacts. The Rum Jungle mine is a stand-out example of a poorly regulated mining operation leading to legacy environmental impacts that are difficult and costly to remediate. This is particularly due to acid-rock drainage processes, not unique to uranium ...
