Michael Owen reports that a key reason for the BHP Billiton decision four years ago to mothball a $30 billion plan to turn Olympic Dam into the biggest uranium mine in the world was the Japanese tsunamis that damaged the Fukushima nuclear plant rather than cost concerns, it has been revealed by BHP mothballed BHP President.

Senior BHP executives told The Australian that although lingering effects from the global financial crisis in 2008 were used to publicly justify the 2012 decision by BHP board not to proceed with the original expansion plan, the real concern was their interpreta... More →

Databases, by SOILECTION, offers the following options. Search conditions generate technical descriptions of remediation techniques and practical experience (cases). The cases make it possible to assess the applicability of soil remediation techniques. The database is complemented with information from the HIP pilot program. Information from practice show which techniques are most effective in certain conditions. The SOILECTION website allows you to compare cases with your own planned remediation project.

SOILECTION draws on existing instruments like the Richtlijn Herstel Bodembehe... More →

Richard Poulden, CEO of Black Swan in Dubai, reports that it has just hit the fan. In the 1976 film Network, newscaster Howard Beale encourages the U.S. citizens to stand up for themselves, open a window and shout out .... I am mad as hell and I am not going to take this anymore!

All over the West this is how people feel. That is what the BREXIT vote is really about ... it has precious little to do with an In/Out vote on the EU and certainly it is not the result of any rational analysis on the part of either side of the campaign.

Mr. Poulden was in favor of Leave. Of cour... More →

NASA reports that a small asteroid has been discovered in an orbit around the sun that keeps it as a constant companion of Earth, and it will remain so for centuries to come.

As it orbits the sun, this new asteroid, designated 2016 HO3, appears to circle around Earth as well. It is too distant to be considered a true satellite of our planet, but it is the best and most stable example to date of a near-Earth companion, or quasi-satellite.

Since 2016 HO3 loops around our planet, but never ventures very far away as we both go around the sun, we refer to it as a quasi-satelli... More →

A Safety and Health Management System (SHMS) is the repeatable, integrated processes, procedures and actions that result from the system plan. It should be operations wide and must be coordinated and include the assignment of responsible persons to help steer and actively manage the system on its path forward. As the SHMS plan is developed and implemented, incorporation of CORESafety into other operational systems should be considered in paralleling efforts to achieve the 0:50:5 goals across all departments.

Management System Coordination is the process of:

Jeff Foust reports that a former NASA manager of the International Space Station announced June 22 that he is starting a new venture that eventually plans to develop a private space station. In a presentation at the NewSpace 2016 conference here, Mike Suffredini, president of the commercial space division of Stinger Ghaffarian Technologies (SGT) who joined the company shortly after retiring from NASA last September, said he has co-founded a new company that initially will seek to install a commercial module on the ISS.

That module would serve as a precursor for a private facility on... More →

Dr. Conca reports that, aside from exposure to the Sun causing skin cancers and to radon causing lung cancer to underground uranium miners who smoke, it is very rare for anyone to be hurt by any dose of radiation. Contrary to the hype and fear pandering by the media on Fukushima, and even Chernobyl, the observable radiation health effects from both accidents were small. In the case of Fukushima, it was as close to zero as one can get. In the case of Chernobyl, although significant, it was still very small.

The reason you might not know this, is that almost everyone uses the wrong m... More →

Dr. Conca reports that now that many environmentalists and climate scientists have realized that nuclear energy is essential for addressing global warming, a coalition of environmental groups is sponsoring a multi-day March for Environmental Hope in California in support of nuclear power.

Starting on June 24th (2016) in San Francisco, people will march from San Francisco to Sacramento to protest the potential closing of the Diablo Canyon Nuclear Power Plant which, together with the recent closing of the San Onofre nuclear plant in southern California, would completely wipe out all p...

Luczaj, et al., report that disseminated Mississippi Valley-type (MVT) mineralization occurs throughout NE Wisconsin, and is recognized as the source of regionally extensive natural groundwater contamination in the form of dissolved arsenic, nickel, and other related metals. Although considerable attention has been given to arsenic contamination of groundwater in the region, limited attention has been focused on characterizing the bedrock sources of these and other metals.

A better understanding is needed, especially in areas where groundwater is the dominant source of drinking wat... More →

Index / Uranium (Nuclear Minerals) / Exploration, Mining, Marketing, Acquisitions

Andrew Topf reports that uranium production in Namibia is expected to triple by 2017 with the ramp-up of the massive Husab mine. In spite of weak commodity prices and relatively slow growth in external demand, the initiation of operation of a large-scale mining project will still support decent levels of economic growth. Namibian output of uranium in 2017, for example, is projected to be more than 3 times the volume produced in 2015, thanks in large part to the Husab uranium mine, Calle Schlettwein, Namibian finance minister. He added that tourism and export-oriented industries are expected to... More →
