All mining projects require an EIA, this is legislation. There will be another formal review process yet to be published, but should be soon.

 

Exploration for uranium and mining for uranium are two totally different things. Lets stick with the science. Chatting is great and discussing the real issues need to continue. Check out the ISL techniques, there is little waste material. This is being considered by Uranium 1. Mining should take place because it will fund the conservation, so badly needed in this area and this is the key.

Justifying mining in a national Game Reserve/NP because of conservation leaves me speechless...

 

exploration and mining are not the same but the goal of the latter is to conclude that mining would be achievable and profitable...


“Africa’s human and natural resources have been pillaged and plundered for generations by people from far off lands. From slavery to archaeological artifacts, minerals, fauna and flora, the continent and its people have for so long been victims of other continents’ selfish interests, and today it is continuing…our elephant ivory and rhino horn are going to countries where they are used for God knows what! Only to satisfy ridiculous outdated beliefs whilst we remain with carcasses, as proof we once owned these magnificent animals.” President Khama
