Australia: Queensland uranium mining to re-commence

Article by Stuart Macgregor

Queensland Premier Campbell Newman has made a decision to re-commence uranium mining in Queensland following the previous Labor Government's decades-long policy to ban uranium mining in Queensland.

The State Government announced it will convene a three-member implementation committee to oversee the recommencement of uranium mining in Queensland (however, nuclear energy production or nuclear waste disposal plants in Queensland will remain off-limits). The Government-appointed committee will prepare a report on uranium mining within three months.

This policy is consistent with the movement by other States and the Federal Government to approve the exploration, mining and sale of uranium.
