Mining interests turn over uranium exploration ban

Posted: February 15, 2012 in Uncategorized

Ban on uranium exports to India was lifted in December

We’ll explore for uranium but we won’t mine it. Oh, no.

That is, in effect the statement New South Wales Mining Minister Chris Hartcher and his political party are making as they are expected to confirm the overturn of a provincial ban on uranium exploration, the opposition leader pointed out this week.

John Robertson says the government is being deliberately misleading, The Australian reported.

“For the minister to say they don’t know what uranium there is in NSW is again disingenuous. There are well-established deposits, the research has been done…” Green Party Member of Parliament Jeremy Buckingham told ABC Radio (Australia).
