Exclusive: A Rare Inside Look At India's Uranium Mines
Hidden deep below the green hills in Jharkhand is India's rich uranium resource. At Narwapahar in Jadugoda town, mining operations are highly mechanised, there are no rusty lifts. Here, one can drive into mines through the kilometres of underground highways that leads one to the uranium ore. The ore lies between 70 to 1,000 metres below the ground. To extract the ore, almost 300 to 400 tonnes of rock is blasted, drilled and brought to the surface.

Uranium Mining in US and Canada in the 1970s
Physically removing the rock ore generally involves either open-pit mining or underground mining. Milling is the process that removes uranium from the ore, which is mostly obtained in open-pit and underground mines. Once at the mill, the ore is crushed and ground up, and treated with chemical solutions to dissolve the uranium, which is then recovered from the solution. Tailings are the wastes from the millings processes and are stored in mill tailings impoundments, a specially designed waste disposal facility. Since 1979, when uranium mine workers began being diagnosed with lung diseases, such as cancer, regulators have gradually tightened controls and mandated improved uranium mining practices. Recently, officials also have become concerned with the broader impacts of uranium mining on public health and the environment. Workers are directly exposed to the radiation hazards of uranium mines. Uranium mining also releases radon from the ground into the atmosphere. Mines and mining waste can release radionuclides, including radon, and other pollutants to streams, springs, and other bodies of water. Federal and state agencies have established pollutant discharge limits and drinking water standards, and continue to monitor these sites for public safety. Uranium mine waste from operations that closed before the mid-1970s are of particular concern. In many cases, these mines remain unclaimed and the waste is still piled near the mine. Weathering can lead to radioactive dust that is blown by the wind and the seepage of contaminants into the surface and groundwater. There are also cases of unclaimed uranium mine waste being used for house construction, which creates significant radon and radiation hazard for inhabitants. For more information on the hazards of uranium, go to USEPA website http://www.epa.gov/radtown/basic.html . This is clipped from the late 1970's BBC Production, Energy From The Crust, showing uranium mining activities and equipment and including footage from the following uranium mines: Schwartzwalder Mine, Near Boulder, Colorado King Solomon Mine near Uravan, Colorado and the Key Lake Mine in Saskatchewan, Canada.

11 Most Massive Mines in the World
From the worlds largest gold mine found on the top of a mountain to the largest diamond mine in the world here are the most massive mines in the world! Subscribe to American EYE! 5.. Asbestos Mine, Canada Also known as the Jeffrey Mine, it’s located in Asbestos, Quebec and it was in operation until 2012. It’s a whopping 2 kilometers wide and 370 meters deep! Check out this thing on google maps and you can tell how completely massive this thing is! It’s the by far the largest asbestos mine in the world. For a long period of time, people would use this mineral to put into their walls and keep their homes from catching on fire! But recently there’s been a link with asbestos and a disease called mesothelioma, which is a lung condition. This is a toxic substance that people should avoid, so obviously this large mine went out of business. The lake at the bottom might look like an inviting blue, but you can bet your bottom dollar, it’s highly toxic! The small town that grew with the thriving asbestos industry feels like they’ve kind of lost their identity once the mine was forced to close, but people do still live there. 4. Mcarthur River Uranium Mine In case you were wondering which mine produces the most uranium in the world, that would be of course the Mcarthur River uranium mine in Saskatchewan Canada. This huge deposit was found in 1988 and finally a mining operation took place in 1997, when it began producing what’s known as Yellowcake. It’s not the kind of yellow cake you’d eat with your grandparents. This stuff has a horrific odor and basically what it is, is concentrated uranium powder which can then be used for powering nuclear reactors. We imagine this powdery substance is quite difficult to get ahold of. There aren’t a ton of photos of this place but, it does produce about 13 percent of the global uranium production across the globe. 3. Diavik Diamond Mine In case you thought it was Africa who had all the massive diamond mines, think again! The Diavik Diamond mine, found in the the northwest territories of Canada is one of the largest producers of diamonds in the Northern hemisphere and this place is pretty crazy! They annually produce 7 million carats of diamonds each year and you better believe it’s not easy to get here. The Diavik mine is found north of the arctic circle and it’s definitely cold! This photo here shows the subarctic landscapes that surround the diamond mine. You thought getting to work in the morning was tough for you? Imagine trying to get to work here! Just recently in 2015, this diamond produced what was known as the Diavik Foxfire 187.7 which is one of the largest rough gem quality diamonds ever produced. 2. Siberian Diamond Mine Also known as the Mirny Mine, The USSR began searching for ways to make to make themselves a more economical stable and independent union. In 1955 the Soviets discovered large diamond deposits at this site in the far away lands of Siberia and many people got to work very quickly in order to help bring wealth to the union. After about 20 years of operations, they finally decided that At one point this mine produced 10 million carats of diamonds a year and reaches a max depth of 524 meters or around 1700 feet making it the 2nd largest excavated hole in the world. The mine is so deep, airspace is closed over the hole due to helicopter crashes caused from the downward flow of air. The construction of this in the frigid conditions of Siberia must have been grueling and downright cruel. Sources state that the machinery used at this mine had to be covered at night or it would freeze Are the diamonds worth freezing to death?! It’s unoperational today but Some claim that there’s still a bunch of diamonds in this mine and the whole thing could be worth about 12 Billion dollars. It’s possible that controlling this diamond is mine is crucial to controlling the price of diamonds across the world. Bingham Copper Mine The bingham copper mine located near Salt Lake City Utah is home to the biggest pit in the world and it’s been in operation since 1903. It’s about 2.5 miles wide and if it were a stadium, it would be able to fit an estimated 9.5 million people. It keeps getting bigger and bigger too! Diligent workers can move about 250,000 tons of rock each day and it’s even become a tourist attraction in recent years before a massive landslide took place. Some claim that this was the biggest non volcanic landslide to take place in North American modern history. This photo we see here shows you the aftermath of this massive landslide and Bingham Copper mine and it makes you wonder how safe some of the conditions at these mines truly are. The landslides were so massive, that they actually triggered a few small earthquakes! Experts estimated that 165 tons of earth slide down from the top of the mine all the way to the bottom.

India's first uranium mine: located in the state of Jharkhand becomes a dark matter laboratory.
India's first uranium mine: located in the state of Jharkhand becomes a dark matter laboratory. India's first uranium mine, the Jaduguda mine in Jharkhand state, now houses a laboratory for experiments in fundamental physics. The Underground Scientific Laboratory of Jaduguda 550, built in a cave of 37 square meters buried at 905 meters and previously used for storage, will focus on the search for dark matter. It was built by the Saha Institute of Nuclear Physics and is expected to bring together the country's brightest experimental scientists interested in cutting-edge research. Reusing the cave at the 50-year mine run by the Uranium Corporation of India required an initial investment of $ 32,000. Scientists considered this to be the best place to install a low temperature cesium iodide detector because its depth would protect the device from other particles. The site's uranium deposits, which produce 25 percent of the raw materials needed to feed India's nuclear reactors, are located about 300 meters from the laboratory. Therefore, physicists working there are not concerned about background radiation.

Uranium City - Life After the Mine
Uranium City - Life after the mine in Saskatchewan As C-GRUG, a Cessna 172 dips and shudders towards Uranium City's dimly lit, cracked and re-tarred runway, McMurray Aviation pilot Brock radios in the plane's location to a nonexistent control tower. Silently, the shattered and desolated remains of homes slip into darkness beneath the plane. Streets, cul-de-sacs and treed alleyways are lined with empty homes. Some homes still have windows and walls -- for others, only a staircase leading to the sky remains. A barrage of trees and shrubs surround the homes -- eager to reclaim the land. Where humans still dwell, smoke traces lazily drift from the chimneys into the chilled northern air. Check out www.danielhayduk.com for the rest of the story!

finding uranium in nature
i went to saxony (a part of germany) to find uranium 'in the wild' at abandoned uranium mines, dig sites and stockpiles. due to the increased uranium content in the earth's surface, saxony is a lot more irradiated than berlin, as you can clearly see in the video (although there are other means of contamination - such as the chernobyl accident - that can also be a cause for increased background radiation). this video also includes a visit to the uranium mine 'MARKUS SEMMLER' and, of course, me digging for (and finding some) uranium minerals. =) the radioactive minerals i found are uranocircite and autunite. they now have a new caring and loving home at my place. ps: i know it's not just uranium in there but a lot of other radionuclides that are within the decay chain, as well as the endproduct - stable lead. i just called it all 'uranium' for simplicity. :-) MUSIC: KRAFTWERK - RADIOACTIVITY www.kraftwerk.de

Iran Saghand Mining Department (SMD), Uranium Mine معدن اورانيوم ساغند يزد ايران
April 10, 2017 (Persian calendar 1396/1/21) Yazd province (استان يزد) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yazd_Province Saghand Uranium Mine (معدن اورانيوم ساغند) Geo coordinate 32°18'46.8"N, 55°31'48"E The Saghand Mine معدن ساغند, located in Yazd يزد in central Iran, is designed to extract low grade hard rock ore bodies through conventional underground mining techniques. The annual estimated production output of the mine is 50 tonnes of uranium. According to IAEA reports, Chinese experts assessed that the mine contains approximately 1,000 tons of uranium. For some perspective on what this means, high-grade ore-bodies can contain several percent uranium (U). Low-grade bodies contain 0.1% U. Concentrations under 0.075% (750 ppm) are generally considered uneconomical to mine. Iran’s ore falls under this category, with concentrations of only 553 ppm. Iran ostensibly began mining at this site on April 9, 2013. ********** The nuclear fuel cycle چرخه سوخت هسته اي, also called nuclear fuel chain زنجيره سوخت هسته اي, is the progression of nuclear fuel through a series of differing stages. It consists of steps in the front end, which are the preparation of the fuel, steps in the service period in which the fuel is used during reactor operation, and steps in the back end, which are necessary to safely manage, contain, and either reprocess or dispose of spent nuclear fuel. If spent fuel is not reprocessed, the fuel cycle is referred to as an open fuel cycle (or a once-through fuel cycle); if the spent fuel is reprocessed, it is referred to as a closed fuel cycle. ********** See all "Iran's Nuclear Fuel Cycle" in these videos: Saghand Mining Department (SMD), Uranium Mine http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pog1GjoDZ7o Uranium Concentrate Powder (YellowCake) production http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3dcpYSrx4Yg Uranium Conversion Facility (UCF) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wPH4KSmT-Po UF6 process & Uranium enrichment centrifuges http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7fjY_3yLO3M Uranium dioxide production & Zirconium Production Plant (ZPP) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dMS80g6laCs Nuclear Fuel Rod & Pellets, Fuel Manufacturing Plant (FMP) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pIzDMuKwy1A

The Lucy Gray Mine: Exploring an Abandoned Uranium Mine
My first stop on my recent solo camping trip was at the remote Lucy Gray Mine in Nevada. This had been a uranium mine, and the mine was started in 1908. Unfortunately, the BLM has sealed off all the adits and vertical shaft with bat gates. The double-compartment shaft at the mine was 300 feet deep with levels branching off at the 100, 200, and 300-foot levels. Total workings comprised approximately 1200 feet. This video features footage of the sealed shaft and adits as well as the extensive mining camp.
Namibia's Uranium Rush
Uranium mining companies have been exploring the arid country of Namibia looking to open new mines. Rössing, a Rio Tinto mine has already been operational for more than 30 years. The implications this mine and future operations is explored from the perspective of the communities living nearby. Through this documentary and two reports (http://www.criirad.org/mines-uranium/namibie/uranium-mining-namibia.html), the EJOLT (www.ejolt.org) team working on nuclear energy sheds light on the dangers of uranium mining in Namibia. Two NGOs in Namibia (Earthlife Namibia and LaRRI), a French independent laboratory specialised in radiation (CRIIRAD) and team coordinator Marta Conde (UAB) partnered to produce this remarkable set of action oriented resources. After a public event on the 10th April 2014 in London -- together with other activists from Madagascar, Papua New Guinea and the US who are also impacted by the activities of Rio Tinto -- an article appeared in The Guardian (http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2014/apr/15/uranium-workers-dying-cancer-rio-tinto-namibia-mine). This event was organised prior to the Annual General Meeting (AGM) of Rio Tinto that took place on the 15th April 2014. In the AGM, Roger Moody from PARTIZANS presented the results of the study carried out by Earthlife and LaRRI on the impact of uranium mining on workers.

4100 Feet Underground in the Massive, Abandoned Admiral Aaron Ward Mine
While coming back down from some mines way up north, Paul and I stopped at the abandoned Admiral Aaron Ward Mine and walked down its 4100-foot inclined entry tunnel into the subterranean workings. Once we reached the bottom, we found wide tunnels branching off in all directions in this former silver, copper, and zinc mine. During our five-hour exploration, we found one stope that was unbelievably huge and utterly mind-blowing! We also found deep, flooded areas and bottomless shafts. Various colorful mineral growths and crystal growths appear throughout the mine's tunnels, too. The miners' workshop was still full of spare parts, tools, and other artifacts. Another interesting find was the miners' refuge chamber. A freshwater spring deep in the mine provided us with some of the cleanest and best-tasting water I've ever drank! After five hours of exploring, we decided to call it quits and began the long, arduous hike back up the 4100-foot, inclined entry tunnel to the surface. #ExploringAbandonedMines #AbandonedMines #MineExploring #UndergroundExploration

Public hearing for expansion of UCIL's Bhatin mine, Jharkhand
The public hearing for the expansion of Bhatin mines of Uranium Corporation of India Limited (UCIL) was held on May 26, 2011. The public hearing was a clear violation the EIA notification and did not allow stakeholders to participate in the process. CSE representative was there to cover the public hearing but was not allowed inside. Read on to know what ensued: UCIL Public Hearing Around 35 inebriated henchmen of UCIL blocked the Tata-Jadugoda Road near Bhatin Colony to prevent environmentalists, environment activists, NGO workers and mediapersons from attending the Public Hearing scheduled on May 26 for renewal of the mining lease. Mediapersons and activists who protested to the road blockade were threatened with dire consequences. Three havildaars deputed on the spot expressed helplessness in paving way to help people attend the hearing. In the morning, around 9 am, the UCIL management posed nearly 50 women near the Bhatin Colony gate to prohibit undesired entry of the mentioned group of people. Later, with the beginning of the public hearing around 11 am, the group of women was replaced by men. Claiming themselves to be residents of Bhatin village, the people armed with batons and bamboo sticks said they were in favour of renewal of the lease. Clad in villagers' attire, all the road-blockers had one thing in common: a badge with green ribbon mentioning 'UCIL mine karmi'. Being interrogated the reason behind stopping the vehicles, frisking passengers and disallowing mediapersons from attending the public hearing, one of the supporters said, "We are residents of this area. We do not want any kind of outsiders' interference here. We are aware of our needs and rights. So we would like to handle it in our own way." On being stressed to let enter the gate to reach the public hearing site, one Sita Ram Manjhi said, "Anyone who crosses the gate will be responsible for his or her condition. We are politely requesting to go back. Now that we have absolute support of the UCIL management in blocking the road, I do not think police will take notice to the aftermath." One havildaar said, "We are here just to take stock of the situation. If anything happens we will communicate to the higher officials and act accordingly." According to sources, about 1500 people attended the hearing. These were mostly women, children and employees of UCIL at a closed precinct inside the colony where the company received uncontested support for renewal of the lease. Apart from UCIL management, those present were Vijay Kumar, ADC (Law and Order) Jamshedpur, Dr M B Shukla of Bhabha Atomic Research Centre, R Chowdhary, regional officer (Jamshedpur), Jharkhand State Pollution Control Board, Jagdish Mahto and RamPravesh Kumar, Environment Engineer, JSPCB, Jamshedpur. Dr Shukla said people should not protest against the lease as the radiations in the area are so less that it cannot harm any person. He categorically said, "The radiation is so less that the traces of radioactive elements found here could be found even in non-uranium mining areas too." Himani Pandey, deputy commissioner of East Singhbhum, said, "I am unaware of the incidence of road blockade. However, I personally do not see any harm in allowing any person from attending the public hearing. Moreover, when the UCIL management and the scientists believe and are sure that there is no harm from radiations, they can easily convince people." At the Bhatin village, men and women who were against the renewal of the mining lease said UCIL had garnered support from other people by promising them work. "This is not the first time they are being fooled. Even a standard V student knows what the consequences of radiation are. This time UCIL has literally 'bought' people by slapping money on their face. Even our village 'pradhan' is in favour of the renewal," said Raghu a young man of Bhatin village. Interestingly, when the photographs of the people blocking the road was shown to the villagers they could not identify any of them. Bhatin Village Panchayat head Khelaram Murmu said, "Its UCIL that ultimately takes care of us. So why to go against them? I would prefer some progress of this area at the cost of uranium mining instead of poverty and joblessness."

Yellow Cradle to Grave (Uranium Mining Fallout)
The nuclear industry is a many-headed toxic beast – nuclear power and nuclear weapons are just the most visible ones. Mining, milling, processing, reprocessing, manufacturing, and transporting nuclear materials are some other heads of the beast that are less visible. All are desecrating Mother Earth and killing her peoples. It’s time to deal with the initial stage of this problem. We can begin by cleaning up the abandoned uranium mines and placing a National Environmental Security Moratorium on all uranium extraction. https://www.popularresistance.org/the-toxic-threat-of-abandoned-uranium-mines-in-the-united-states/ USA Cows Fed Copper To Hide Radiated Gray Spots ☠ Lake By Uranium Mine Melts Steel! surprise pop up bonus link Coldplay - Yellow https://youtu.be/yKNxeF4KMsY USA Cows Fed Copper To Hide Radiated Gray Spots ☠ Lake By Uranium Mine Melts Steel! https://youtu.be/d1lMSpP9WYQ Irresponsible corporations and negligent government agencies have abandoned more than 10,000 toxic uranium mines throughout the US. These hazardous mines poison our air, land and water and harm public health. Currently no laws require cleanup of these dangerous sites. A new campaign, Clean Up The Mines!, aims for remediation of these mines through federal legislation and action, and public education. Abandoned Uranium Mines (AUMs) The Environmental Protection Agency and US Geological Survey document over 10,000 abandoned uranium mines in the US, most in 15 western states on public, private, and tribal lands. Over 4,200 of these mines produced uranium that was sold to the US Atomic Energy Commission for use in nuclear weapons from the 1940s through the 1970s. Starting in the 1960s, much of the mining was done to provide fuel for nuclear power plants. There are several AUMs in and near the Grand Canyon, 169 of them within 40 miles of Mt. Rushmore, and eight right on the edge of Grand Teton / Yellowstone National Parks. One in seven (10 million) people in the western US lives within 50 miles of an AUM. CLICK HERE TO SIGN THE PETITION TO CLEAN UP THE MINES AND ALL Future Uranium Mining Down! http://www.cleanupthemines.org/action/ AUM hazards and contamination pathways. Physical hazards of AUMs come from unmarked, unprotected mine entrances, cliffs, falling rocks, and collapsing buildings and equipment. Wind picks up radioactive dust from rock piles and blows it for miles people breathe fine particles into their lungs, resulting in much higher levels of lung cancer near AUMs. People carry the radioactive dust, dirt, and mud around on their clothes and shoes, spreading the contamination to their homes and families. One of the decay elements of uranium is radon gas. It seeps up through the ground in many areas around mine sites where people and animals breathe it in. Exposure to radon gas is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the US. Water picks up radiation in a variety of ways – rain washes radioactive dust from the air and rocks and carries it into streams and rivers. Surface and underground water dissolve uranium from rock and dust. This is particularly true of uranium that has been exposed to oxygen, which changes it from UIV to UVI, which is more soluble in water. (This is the principle used in ‘In Situ Leaching’, similar to fracking techniques, the method most commonly used now.) The result is polluted rivers, lakes, and aquifers, with no safe available drinking water for thousands of communities.

"A Slow Genocide of the People":   Uranium Mining Leaves Toxic Nuclear Legacy on Indigenous Land
Further videos about topics addressed are available in Recent Activities, Favourites, Play Lists on my channels. Mirrored and published with the permission of: http://www.democracynow.org - The iconic Grand Canyon is the site of a battle over toxic uranium mining. Last year, a company called Energy Fuels Resources was given federal approval to reopen a mine six miles from the Grand Canyon's popular South Rim entrance. A coalition of Native and environmental groups have protested the decision, saying uranium mining could strain scarce water sources and pose serious health effects. Diné (Navajo) tribal lands are littered with abandoned uranium mines. From 1944 to 1986, 3.9 million tons of uranium ore were chiseled and blasted from the mountains and plains of the region. More than 1,000 mines have closed, but the mining companies never properly disposed of their radioactive waste piles, leading to a spike in cancer rates and other health ailments. Broadcasting from Flagstaff, Arizona, we speak with Taylor McKinnon, director of energy with Grand Canyon Trust, and Klee Benally, a Diné (Navajo) activist and musician. "It's really a slow genocide of the people, not just indigenous people of this region, but it's estimated that there are over 10 million people who are residing within 50 miles of abandoned uranium mines," Benally says. Benally also describes the struggle to preserve the San Francisco Peaks, an area considered sacred by 13 Native tribes, where the Snowbowl ski resort is using treated sewage water to make snow.

The Nuclear Grave of India - Jadugoda
My 2nd stop during the 900 km solo cycling expedition through Jharkhand was Jadugoda, the nuclear capital of Jharkhand. Since 1967, Uranium Corporation of India Limited has been mining and processing Uranium here. The radiation exposure resulting from utter disregard for health and safety compliances has resulted in a living nightmare for the locals. Cancer, birth defects, miscarriages and sterility are commonplace. Here is what i saw while interacting with the villagers near Jadugoda mines. Music: Balmorhea - Remembrance
