Waste from Uranium mining & milling

During our 2005 workshop we discussed the environmental problems generated by uranium mining, milling and fabrication of fuel elements for NPPs. This part of the nuclear fuel processing is the most devastating for the regions where uranium mining takes place. Mining generates an enormous amount of low grade uranium ore, contaminated water and destroid land.
