Powering America: Uranium Mining and Milling
Uranium mining is comparable to mining for other elements and the same safety precautions that keep other miners safe also keep uranium miners safe. And, while uranium is radioactive, its very low level of radioactivity is actually on par with some everyday materials like granite To learn more visit: http://www.heritage.org/poweringamericafilm/

Collecting Uranium: 101 The Basics
!!!The most important aspects of safety!!! Key things to reduce exposure: 1. Shielding 2. Time (of exposure) 3. Distance Key things to keep safe: 1. Minimize exposure if possible. 2. Always wash hands and wear gloves. 3. Never allow inhalation or ingestion of dust from samples. 4. Keep samples away from children (anyone, actually) and only bring 5. Never store samples under your bed (not sure why they do, but apparently people do this lol) Good books: Introduction to Radioactive Minerals - Robert Lauf Places to buy uranium: minresco.com UnitedNuclear.com (eBay and Amazon have some too, but be careful!)

How Is Uranium Mining Conducted in the United States?
Uranium Resources' Mark Pelizza explains how uranium is mined--either through a conventional or in situ uranium mining process--to provide fuel for U.S. nuclear energy facilities. He also discusses where the uranium comes from that is used to power U.S. nuclear plants.

WE DO NOT OWN THE MATERIAL EXCLUSIVELY, BUT HAVE A LICENSE CONTRACT FOR INTERNET STREAMING. If unavailable in your territory, or if you are interested in other license requests (feature movie, television, documentary, commercial...), please contact Javafilms: [email protected] Story The African continent is rapidly developing itself economically. The only bottleneck in this process are readily available resources. Besides money these mainly consist of poor infrastructure and availability of energy, especially electricity. Economically booming countries like for example Uganda still have a lot to gain when a steady supply of power is provided. Nowadays in Uganda the power plants can only cater for roughly 30% of the countries demand and even new hydraulic power projects in the Nile will not solve this problem. Nuclear power therefor seems the most cost effective solution for most of the African nations including Uganda. Western companies such as the French Areva fiercely lobby for more power plants on the continent. But is Atomic Energy the best solution for unstable regimes? And what does Atomic Energy and the mining of uranium mean for the wellbeing and safety of the local population and the environment? Social Interest Ever since the first nuclear reactor was build in Africa in Congo in 1958 there have been safety concerns, cause within the whole process of the production of nuclear energy a lot of things can go wrong, willingly and unwillingly, with possible devastating consequences for people and environment. For instance in 2007 the head of the Congolese research institute was arrested for illegally selling nuclear fuel rods. Also in Niger the highway where the mined uranium is transported on runs through rebel territory associated with Al-Qaida. The war in neighbouring Mali makes this transport even more risky. Besides the risks of fuel rods ending up in the wrong hands the mining of uranium itself poses danger to people and environment as well. Legal and illegal mining operations destroy ecosystems and leave the miners with radiation poisoning . Historical and Political Relevance Nuclear power, the right to enrich uranium and develop the technology to exploit its energy, has always been a difficult point in international politics. In the Cold War the threat mainly came from the war talk and power displays of archenemies the United States and the Soviet Union which both had a gigantic nuclear arsenal. As the cold war ended the threat of a nuclear war declined. However the nuclear disaster in a power plant in Chernobyl a few years earlier proved that the benefits of nuclear power also pose a big potential threat in case of incidents. However, this incident did not stop more countries from starting a nuclear program with a wide range of experiments While in the last decade the interest of the West in Nuclear power seems to decline some new players on the nuclear market, with questionable regimes like Iran and North Korea , are causing much international debate about the right to develop nuclear power. The rapidly developing African continent is in serious need of energy and has always been rich in raw resources to produce energy and is now slowly developing the knowledge to exploit them. The African continent may well be on the verge of a nuclear revolution so the political discussion about the right to use nuclear energy is more relevant than ever. Because not only questionable regimes can pose a potential threat, also war and especially terrorism are extremely dangerous, since it takes a single rocket fired by a single person to blow up a nuclear power plant.

Made in 1957 by Union Carbide & Carbon company, PETRIFIED RIVER describes the modern romance of the present-day West in the search for uranium. It shows modern uranium prospecting, including prospecting by airplane, as well as mining in the Colorado Plateau. It also discusses the uses of radioactive isotopes at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. Uranium is a chemical element with symbol U and atomic number 92. It is a silvery-white metal in the actinide series of the periodic table. A uranium atom has 92 protons and 92 electrons, of which 6 are valence electrons. Uranium is weakly radioactive because all its isotopes are unstable (with half-lives of the 6 naturally known isotopes, uranium-233 to uranium-238, varying between 69 years and 4.5 billion years). The most common isotopes of uranium are uranium-238 (which has 146 neutrons and accounts for almost 99.3% of the uranium found in nature) and uranium-235 (which has 143 neutrons, accounting for 0.7% of the element found naturally). Uranium has the second highest atomic weight of the primordially occurring elements, lighter only than plutonium. Its density is about 70% higher than that of lead, but slightly lower than that of gold or tungsten. It occurs naturally in low concentrations of a few parts per million in soil, rock and water, and is commercially extracted from uranium-bearing minerals such as uraninite. In nature, uranium is found as uranium-238 (99.2739–99.2752%), uranium-235 (0.7198–0.7202%), and a very small amount of uranium-234 (0.0050–0.0059%). Uranium decays slowly by emitting an alpha particle. The half-life of uranium-238 is about 4.47 billion years and that of uranium-235 is 704 million years,making them useful in dating the age of the Earth. Many contemporary uses of uranium exploit its unique nuclear properties. Uranium-235 has the distinction of being the only naturally occurring fissile isotope. Uranium-238 is fissionable by fast neutrons, and is fertile, meaning it can be transmuted to fissile plutonium-239 in a nuclear reactor. Another fissile isotope, uranium-233, can be produced from natural thorium and is also important in nuclear technology. While uranium-238 has a small probability for spontaneous fission or even induced fission with fast neutrons, uranium-235 and to a lesser degree uranium-233 have a much higher fission cross-section for slow neutrons. In sufficient concentration, these isotopes maintain a sustained nuclear chain reaction. This generates the heat in nuclear power reactors, and produces the fissile material for nuclear weapons. Depleted uranium (238U) is used in kinetic energy penetrators and armor plating. Uranium is used as a colorant in uranium glass producing orange-red to lemon yellow hues. It was also used for tinting and shading in early photography. The 1789 discovery of uranium in the mineral pitchblende is credited to Martin Heinrich Klaproth, who named the new element after the planet Uranus. Eugène-Melchior Péligot was the first person to isolate the metal and its radioactive properties were discovered in 1896 by Henri Becquerel. Research by Otto Hahn, Lise Meitner, Enrico Fermi and others, such as J. Robert Oppenheimer starting in 1934 led to its use as a fuel in the nuclear power industry and in Little Boy, the first nuclear weapon used in war. An ensuing arms race during the Cold War between the United States and the Soviet Union produced tens of thousands of nuclear weapons that used uranium metal and uranium-derived plutonium-239. The security of those weapons and their fissile material following the breakup of the Soviet Union in 1991 is an ongoing concern for public health and safety.

Uranium Mining
Vanessa Barchfield reports that the Trump Administration is reconsidering an Obama-era initiative that banned uranium mining in Northern Arizona, and some of the concerns it raises in Coconino County.
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. The entire film is available at the Internet Archive.

"Nuclear Energy, Perspective" Uranium Production from Ore To Waste 1970s Exxon Propaganda Film
Produced in the mid 70s and Extolling the Safety and Reliability of Nuclear Energy. Footage from the discovery and mining of uranium deposits, Milling Uranium, Uranium Hexafluoride (UF6), Manufacture of pellets and rods, operations training, Early Plutonium "Fast Breeder" reactors, Pump Mining, Reprocessing used fuel and "Testing" for a solution to the "waste issue". Obviously this is just Exxon BS so the silly humans will continue to "feel" safe and keep on burning up the kilowatts. Good footage and laughable script for us anti nukers. The footage is good but it is presented in glorious VHS. A couple of observations... They seem to be more concerned that the fuel will be contaminated...over the workers safety. They refer to Three Mile Island as a "Breakdown" Stupid Trivia:BTW the Name Exxon was created from the Name of the 33rd Governor of Nebraska (1971-79), James Exon (D), thinking it may be politically incorrect to use his name they added the extra X. His Political career began after closing Exon Office Supplies in Lincoln, Nebraska. in 1971 in 1972 when approached by Esso he agreed to let them use the name and he received no payment from Esso but his political career sure took off! Exxon formally replaced the Esso, Enco & Humble Brands in the US in 1973.

The Courrières mine disaster, Europe's worst mining accident, involved the death of 1,099 miners in Northern France on March 10, 1906. This disaster was surpassed only by the Benxihu Colliery accident in China on April 26, 1942, which killed 1,549 miners. While mining today is substantially safer than it was in previous decades, mining accidents still occur. Government figures indicate that 5,000 Chinese miners die in accidents each year, while other reports have suggested a figure as high as 20,000. Mining accidents continue worldwide, including accidents causing dozens of fatalities at a time such as the 2007 Ulyanovskaya Mine disaster in Russia, the 2009 Heilongjiang mine explosion in China, and the 2010 Upper Big Branch Mine disaster in the United States. Mining ventilation is a significant safety concern for many miners. Poor ventilation inside sub-surface mines causes exposure to harmful gases, heat, and dust, which can cause illness, injury, and death. The concentration of methane and other airborne contaminants underground can generally be controlled by dilution (ventilation), capture before entering the host air stream (methane drainage), or isolation (seals and stoppings). Rock dusts, including coal dust and silicon dust, can cause long-term lung problems including silicosis, asbestosis, and pneumoconiosis (also known as miners lung or black lung disease). A ventilation system is set up to force a stream of air through the working areas of the mine. The air circulation necessary for effective ventilation of a mine is generated by one or more large mine fans, usually located above ground. Air flows in one direction only, making circuits through the mine such that each main work area constantly receives a supply of fresh air. Watering down in coal mines also helps to keep dust levels down: by spraying the machine with water and filtering the dust-laden water with a scrubber fan, miners can successfully trap the dust. Gases in mines can poison the workers or displace the oxygen in the mine, causing asphyxiation... Ignited methane gas is a common source of explosions in coal mines... Miners utilize equipment strong enough to break through extremely hard layers of the Earth's crust. This equipment, combined with the closed work space in which underground miners work, can cause hearing loss... Since mining entails removing dirt and rock from its natural location, thereby creating large empty pits, rooms, and tunnels, cave-ins as well as ground and rock falls are a major concern within mines. Modern techniques for timbering and bracing walls and ceilings within sub-surface mines have reduced the number of fatalities due to cave-ins, but ground falls continue to represent up to 50% of mining fatalities. Even in cases where mine collapses are not instantly fatal, they can trap mine workers deep underground. Cases such as these often lead to high-profile rescue efforts, such as when 33 Chilean miners were trapped deep underground for 69 days in 2010. High temperatures and humidity may result in heat-related illnesses, including heat stroke, which can be fatal. The presence of heavy equipment in confined spaces also poses a risk to miners. To improve the safety of mine workers, modern mines use automation and remote operation including, for example, such equipment as automated loaders and remotely operated rockbreakers. However, despite modern improvements to safety practices, mining remains a dangerous occupation throughout the world...

How Uranium Becomes Nuclear Fuel
Nuclear technology is constantly in the news. So how exactly do you make nuclear fuel? Special thanks to Life Noggin for animating this video! Check them out: http://www.youtube.com/lifenoggin Read More: Fuel Cycle Facilities http://www.nrc.gov/materials/fuel-cycle-fac.html “The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) regulates uranium recovery facilities that mill uranium; fuel cycle facilities that convert, enrich, and fabricate it into fuel for use in nuclear reactors, and deconversion facilities that process the depleted uranium hexafluoride for disposal.” Uranium processing http://www.britannica.com/EBchecked/topic/619232/uranium-processing “Uranium (U), although very dense (19.1 grams per cubic centimetre), is a relatively weak, nonrefractory metal. Indeed, the metallic properties of uranium appear to be intermediate between those of silver and other true metals and those of the nonmetallic elements, so that it is not valued for structural applications.” About Nuclear Fuel Cycle https://infcis.iaea.org/NFCIS/About.cshtml “Nuclear Fuel Cycle can be defined as the set of processes to make use of nuclear materials and to return it to normal state. It starts with the mining of unused nuclear materials from the nature and ends with the safe disposal of used nuclear material in the nature.” Nuclear Fuel Processes http://www.nei.org/Knowledge-Center/Nuclear-Fuel-Processes “Nuclear power plants do not burn any fuel. Instead, they use uranium fuel, consisting of solid ceramic pellets, to produce electricity through a process called fission.” ____________________ DNews is dedicated to satisfying your curiosity and to bringing you mind-bending stories & perspectives you won't find anywhere else!

With no official records found on this location, we think very few people know of this adit ! ... (MORE INFO BELOW) We are a group of Abandoned Mine explorers in Nova Scotia. Abandoned Mine Hunting is somewhat of a cross between the hobby of urban exploration, caving (spelunking), and history enthusiast. If this is your kind of thing, be sure to subscribe so you will always be informed of each new episode. IF YOU KNOW OF AN ABANDONED MINE IN ATLANTIC CANADA, we'd love to hear from you. Send a private message. We may just come and do an explore and episode featuring your site ! ** BEST VIEWED using the YouTube app on a full size SmartTV ** SPECIAL NOTE: While this type of exploration is almost always kilometers back in deep forest, it cannot always be guaranteed that the land we are hiking is public (Crown). These forgotten old mines/claims are almost always over 100 years old. It is also common that most mine workings have some kind of natural cave-in covering their mouth, after nearly a century of erosion. So some explores may involve preparation of clearing that cave-in, and/or dealing with letting spring water (flooding) out of the adits. These facts, along with the inherent danger of abandoned mines, force us to remain anonymous. We are responsible for our own risks & actions (not yours), but be clear we are not promoting this activity. Only showing you what we do. As with any typical Urban Exploration type channel, our faces and commentary will always be masked. If you are seeing an Episode, it means we are already weeks or month(s) finished with that site and never going back. The delay is intentional, as nothing shown here will be in realtime. It cannot be stressed enough - abandoned mines or mine sites can pose a ton of lethal threats. *We are not kids looking for kicks* Keep in mind that our group is made up of responsible adults, each with specific skills, and cross-Canada experience with over 100+ mine walks. Most 10 times larger and deeper than will ever be found in Nova Scotia! Specific research is always done beforehand. Required equipment and backups are a must. While it is indeed possible to safely explore an abandoned mine, DO NOT ENTER A MINE without being experienced, or going with an experienced explorer. If you don't know what you're doing, STAY OUT STAY ALIVE is the best policy. #ExploringAbandonedMines #MineExploring #AbandonedMines

("May all corrupt Chiefs on all reservations ..and in all other Indigenous communities around the world...., be identified.., peacefully removed.. ..and replaced with people.. who are capable of doing the job.., ..honest.. and have "The Peoples".. best interest at heart.. ...and so it must be..") ----------------------------------------- The Pine Ridge Indian Reservation.. (Wazí Aháŋhaŋ Oyáŋke).., ..also called Pine Ridge Agency.., is an Oglala Lakota Native American reservation.. ..located in the U.S. state of South Dakota. Originally included within the territory.. of the Great Sioux Reservation.., Pine Ridge was established in 1889.., in the southwest corner of South Dakota.., .. on the Nebraska border. Pine Ridge is the site of several events.., ..that marked tragic milestones in the history.. between the Sioux of the area.. ..and the United States (U.S.) government. Stronghold Table.., a mesa in what is today.. the Oglala-administered portion of Badlands National Park.. ..was the location of the last of the Ghost Dances. The U.S. authorities' attempt to repress this movement.. eventually led to the Wounded Knee Massacre.., ..on December 29, 1890. A mixed band of Miniconjou Lakota and Hunkpapa Sioux, led by Chief Spotted Elk, sought sanctuary at Pine Ridge after fleeing the Standing Rock Agency, where Sitting Bull had been killed during efforts to arrest him. The families were intercepted.. by a heavily armed detachment of the Seventh Cavalry, which attacked them, killing many women and children as well as warriors. Changes accumulated in the last quarter of the 20th century. In 1971.., the Oglala Sioux Tribe (OST).. started Oglala Lakota College.. A Tribal college.., which offers 4-year degrees. The Oglala Lakota Pine Ridge Reservation.. is best described.., in three words: ..“third world country.”.. Over 95% of people live below the poverty line. The median income per year is $2,600.. and the unemployment rate stays between 85% and 95%. It is hard to believe the conditions are so horrendous ..inside the country that boasts of “opportunity for all”. Severe poverty issues are not the only concerns ..for the reservation. The recent increases of uranium mining.. and a lack to clean up abandoned mines.., cause problems., that could extend world-wide. ------------------------------------------- I claim no ownership of any of the clips, video and words expressed in this video...and employ my borrowing of them with much respect and thanks.

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

The mining legacy goes back to the early 1800's leaving us with more than 500,000 abandoned mine openings nationwide. These old mines and water-filled pits and quarries pose a multitude of hazards. The Utah Bureau of Land Management, Utah Abandoned Mine Reclamation Program and Colorado Inactive Mine Reclamation Program have cooperatively produced this video as an educational tool to show the dangers associated with abandoned mines.

US BREAKING NEWS | U.S. top court takes up challenge to Virginia uranium mining ban
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday agreed to decide whether states have the right to ban uranium mining for public health reasons in a dispute over a moratorium Virginia put in place on the radioactive metal in 1982. The court will hear a bid by a Virginia Energy Resources Inc subsidiary and other owners of the largest U.S. uranium deposit to revive a lawsuit thrown out by a lower court that sought to invalidate Virginia’s ban because it conflicted with a federal law that regulates nuclear power generation. Uranium, a main source of fuel for nuclear power plants and material in nuclear warheads, remains a strategic resource for electricity and national defense. The case could clarify how far states can go in regulating access to uranium resources. The plaintiffs, Virginia Uranium Inc, a subsidiary of Vancouver, British Columbia-based Virginia Energy Resources, Cole Hill LLC and Bowen Minerals LLC, value the southern Virginia uranium deposit at up to $6 billion, according to court papers. Mining it could inject billions of dollars into the local economy, the plaintiffs said. The dispute concerns whether the federal Atomic Energy Act of 1954 preempts Virginia’s mining ban under the U.S. Constitution’s so-called Supremacy Clause, which holds that federal law generally trumps state law. The Atomic Energy Act gives the federal Nuclear Regulatory Commission the sole power to regulate radiation safety standards for milling uranium ore and disposing of waste byproducts known as tailings, key steps in the production of nuclear fuel. But it does not cover conventional uranium mining on non-federal land. The plaintiffs said the ban was motivated by concerns over radiation hazards, which is subject to exclusive federal oversight. Virginia enacted its ban on uranium mining amid concerns about environmental and public safety hazards. After unsuccessfully lobbying Virginia legislators to allow it, the plaintiffs filed suit in 2015, arguing that the federal law regulates nuclear safety and preempts state laws that attempt to do so. President Donald Trump’s administration has backed the companies in the case. Under the appeals court ruling, U.S. Solicitor General Noel Francisco said in a brief, “States could, for example, pass laws that impede physical access to nuclear facilities, diminish the availability of source materials or equipment necessary for nuclear development, or erect financial barriers to the development of nuclear energy.” The Richmond, Virginia-based 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled against the plaintiffs last year, prompting their Supreme Court appeal. The justices will decide the case in their next term, which begins in October.

Radioactive Key Chain | IS IT SAFE???
Lets see if a Tritium powered glow key chain leaks any radiation! Join me on Patreon! https://www.patreon.com/EricWilliam Remember to subscribe for more videos! https://goo.gl/2qaJ2U These little Tritium powered keychains are pretty neat. They will emit light for over 10 years and are not supposed to leak any radiation. I use my Soeks dosimeter to check if we have any emissions and check its function using some fairly radioactive pottery called Fiesta-ware. It uses a depleted uranium oxide in the red glaze.
