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. For more information on uranium mining, see NEI's website: http://www.nei.org/howitworks/nuclearpowerplantfuel/.

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!

Views: 1965 GreenTV
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 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.

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

Radon Hazards in Uranium Mining 1960s
This is clipped from the the United States Bureau of Mines film, Radiation Protection in Uranium Mines, produced during the 1960s. Uranium mining occurred mostly in the southwestern United States and drew many Native Americans and others into work in the mines and mills. Despite a long and well-developed understanding, based on the European experience earlier in the century, that uranium mining led to high rates of lung cancer, few protections were provided by employers or government for US miners before 1962 and their adoption after that time was slow and incomplete. The resulting high rates of illness among miners led in 1990 to passage of the Radiation Exposure Compensation Act. For more details, see the outstanding article, The History of Uranium Mining and the Navajo People, in the Sept 2002 American Journal of Public Health at http://www.ajph.org/cgi/reprint/92/9/1410 . The entire film, which mostly focuses on mine ventilation, is available from the Internet Archives

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.

finding uranium in nature

Is Depleted Uranium As Safe As The Military Claims? DU Video
Depleted Uranium (DU) General Awarness Training. Potential health effects of exposure to depleted uranium. In the kidneys, the proximal tubules (the main filtering component of the kidney) are considered to be the main site of potential damage from chemical toxicity of uranium. There is limited information from human studies indicating that the severity of effects on kidney function and the time taken for renal function to return to normal both increase with the level of uranium exposure. In a number of studies on uranium miners, an increased risk of lung cancer was demonstrated, but this has been attributed to exposure from radon decay products. Lung tissue damage is possible leading to a risk of lung cancer that increases with increasing radiation dose. However, because DU is only weakly radioactive, very large amounts of dust (on the order of grams) would have to be inhaled for the additional risk of lung cancer to be detectable in an exposed group. Risks for other radiation-induced cancers, including leukaemia, are considered to be very much lower than for lung cancer. Erythema (superficial inflammation of the skin) or other effects on the skin are unlikely to occur even if DU is held against the skin for long periods (weeks). No consistent or confirmed adverse chemical effects of uranium have been reported for the skeleton or liver. No reproductive or developmental effects have been reported in humans. Although uranium released from embedded fragments may accumulate in the central nervous system (CNS) tissue, and some animal and human studies are suggestive of effects on CNS function, it is difficult to draw firm conclusions from the few studies reported. Maximum radiation exposure limits and their limited application to uranium and depleted uranium. The International Basic Safety Standards, agreed by all applicable UN agencies in 1996, provide for radiation dose limits above normal background exposure levels. The general public should not receive a dose of more than 1 millisievert (mSv) in a year. In special circumstances, an effective dose of up to 5 mSv in a single year is permitted provided that the average dose over five consecutive years does not exceed 1 mSv per year. An equivalent dose to the skin should not exceed 50 mSv in a year. Occupational exposure should not exceed an effective dose of 20 mSv per year averaged over five consecutive years or an effective dose of 50 mSv in any single year. An equivalent dose to the extremities (hands and feet) or the skin should not surpass 500 mSv in a year. In case of uranium or DU intake, the radiation dose limits are applied to inhaled insoluble uranium-compounds only. For all other exposure pathways and the soluble uranium-compounds, chemical toxicity is the factor that limits exposure. About 98% of uranium entering the body via ingestion is not absorbed, but is eliminated via the faeces. Typical gut absorption rates for uranium in food and water are about 2% for soluble and about 0.2% for insoluble uranium compounds. The fraction of uranium absorbed into the blood is generally greater following inhalation than following ingestion of the same chemical form. The fraction will also depend on the particle size distribution. For some soluble forms, more than 20% of the inhaled material could be absorbed into blood. Of the uranium that is absorbed into the blood, approximately 70% will be filtered by the kidney and excreted in the urine within 24 hours; this amount increases to 90% within a few days.

Nuclear Hotseat #195 Fukushima, Hanford, Uranium Mining w/ Chuck Johnson
Nuclear Hotseat #195: Uranium Film Festival – Quebec, + PSR NW’s Chuck Johnson on Hanford, CGS and Libbe HaLevey http://www.nuclearhotseat.com/2484/ FEATURED INTERVIEWS: Christian Levesque, organizer for this year’s Uranium Film Festival in Quebec, explains how he coordinated the timing of this year’s event with an international scientific symposium on uranium issues and a political gathering of Canada’s Prime Minister and political elite of the Provinces. http://uraniumfilmfestival.org/ Chuck Johnson, Nuclear Campaigner for Physicians for Social Responsibility NW, representing Oregon and Washington state, goes over the history and problems at the Hanford Site and Columbia Generating Station. NUMNUTZ OF THE WEEK: Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has come up with $4 billion in aid to disaster victims... of any and every disaster in the world EXCEPT Fukushima on the northeast coast of Japan. PLUS: Fukushima at 4 – triple the number of people impacted by radiation in Japan as compared to Chernobyl; Thyroid cancer rates 50x higher than normal in Fukushima children, w/more than 100 cases confirmed or suspected; TEPCO admits rainwater radiation levels at Fukushima surge yet again; Army Brigadier General James A. Blankenhorn double-dips as Deputy Project Manager for civilian contractor Nuclear Waste Partnership at the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant in Carlsbad, NM, and “goes bananas” confusing the public’s understanding of natural, background and man-made radiation. Utah radwaste company Energy “Solutions” tries to convince South Carolina to re-open tritium-leaking atomic garbage dump w/media blitz; Korean Hydro and Nuclear Power hacker releases more files from December hack and demands money or he’ll leak country’s sensitive nuke info to other countries – and no, Sony is not involved. Myla Reson’s video, “James Blankenhorn’s Radioactive Banana” https://youtu.be/sg8hv8915Rw Army Brigadier General James A. Blankenhorn works for civilian contractor Nuclear Waste Partnership LLC as the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP) Recovery Manager and Deputy Project Manager. The video "Jim Blankenhorn's Radioactive Banana" begins with an excerpt from the Thursday, March 5, 2015 WIPP townhall meeting held in the City of Carlsbad, New Mexico during which General Blankenhorn downplays the adverse consequences of ionizing radiation and blurs the lines between natural, background, and man-made radiation. Once again we hear about one of the standard components in the nuclear village's favorite list of false equivalencies - radioactive bananas - being trotted out in yet another WIPP dog and pony show. WIPP is a dump for plutonium contaminated nuclear weapons waste. Although the Department of Energy convinced the Environmental Protection Agency that plutonium at WIPP would be isolated from the accessible environment for a minimum of 10,000 years. On Valentines Day 2014 WIPP failed 9,985 years ahead of schedule when at least one drum of lethal waste exploded - contaminating the underground and traveling up and out into the environment above ground - at least 22 WIPP workers suffer from internal radioactive contamination resulting from that release. Since the Valentines Day WIPP failure the City of Carlsbad, New Mexico and the Department of Energy have co-hosted townhall meetings. Following Blankenhorn, Physicians for Social Responsibility Senior Scientist Steven Starr demystifies the significance of potassium-40 and eating bananas. Starr delivered his presentation on March 11, 2013 during the Helen Caldicott Foundation symposium titled "The Medical and Ecological Consequences of the Fukushima Nuclear Accident" The video concludes with brief comments from journalist Harvey Wasserman recorded at a March 11, 2014 Fukushima remembrance event in Laguna Beach, California. Special thanks to EON3 for the recording of Harvey Wasserman at his talk on 3.11.2014: Watch Harvey's full talk here: http://youtu.be/1XElzI1hfS4 Watch Steven Starr's full talk here: http://youtu.be/nDgnBqBJZNc

Nuclear Power NOT Clean, Safe, OR Reliable by A Gundersen
Part One: Economics Of Nuclear Power with Arnie Gundersen http://www.fairewinds.org/nuclear-energy-education/part-one-economics-of-nuclear-power-with-arnie-gundersen In April of 2015, Fairewinds’ Chief Engineer, Arnie Gundersen and the Fairewinds Crew headed to Quebec City for the World Uranium Symposium. Attended by more than 300 delegates from 20 countries that produce uranium for nuclear power and weapons, the symposium brought together experts who are calling on governments throughout the world to end all uranium mining. In this video, Part One: Economics Of Nuclear Power, Arnie presents an economic analysis of the cost of nuclear power. http://www.fairewinds.org/nuclear-energy-education/part-one-economics-of-nuclear-power-with-arnie-gundersen and that link also contains the transcript of this presentation ~~~ Gordon has a great saying on the issue of nuclear waste, though. And he will call it, instead of waste storage, Gordon calls it waste abandonment. And I think that’s a really great concept, Gordon. My hat’s off to you there. That we are not just putting this nuclear waste in the ground so that we can go back in and check it. It’s not like your self-storage unit, you can undo the door and look in and take something out. Once this stuff is there, you have abandoned it forever. And I think that’s a critical piece in this. Is it clean? It’s not clean on the front end with the mining and it’s not clean on the back end with abandoning waste. There’s a saying that when you find yourself in a deep hole, to prevent it from getting deeper, you have to stop digging. And I think that’s really what we need to think about here is that when we stop building nuclear plants, we will stop the nuclear waste production. Savannah River is between Georgia and South Carolina. And it’s a nuclear waste dump that dates back to the bomb age. And I thought the locals would love to hear that. And I was told, no, you don’t want the locals to even know you’re doing it because they want the jobs. And the same thing happened – I was at Sellafield last month and we wanted to take dust samples inside people’s homes. And we were told, they’re not going to help you because they want the jobs. But the money stops flowing long before the risks end. And I think that’s an important piece here. Okay, safety. The policymakers are looking at the risk of nuclear as a one-in-a-million event. But we know that we’ve had five meltdowns in 35 years. We’ve had TMI – partial meltdown; Chernobyl, complete meltdown; and three meltdowns at Fukushima. Thirty-five divided by five is the odds of a nuclear meltdown somewhere on the plant are about once every seven years. I have a saying that sooner or later – I think nuclear fits this very well – sooner or later in any foolproof system, the fools are going to exceed the proofs. And that’s nuclear. So that’s clean? No. Safe? No. Reliable. And of course, Japan lost 35 percent of its capacity – 54 nuclear plants – and still continued to function as a society. Yes, there were hardships. But they got through without nuclear. So it can be done. So I submit to you at the end of this conference, we should probably say, yes, I’m against mining and I’m against waste abandonment and I’d love to shut nuclear power plants down. But if that’s what we’re saying, policymakers’ eyes will glaze over, and they’ll say what are you going to do without it. So we all need to take the opposite approach here and talk about a future that can be nuclear free and be inexpensive as well. And I think given an alternative, they’ll jump at it. ~~~ SEE ALSO: What's life after nuclear disaster? http://www.fairewinds.org/nuclear-energy-education/what-if-your-life-was-destroyed-by-a-nuclear-disaster ~~~ World Uranium Symposium 2015 - TMI and Chernobyl Workshop http://www.fairewinds.org/nuclear-energy-education/world-uranium-symposium-2015-tmi-and-chernobyl-workshop ~~~ World Uranium Symposium 2015 Fukushima Workshop http://www.fairewinds.org/nuclear-energy-education/world-uranium-symposium-2015-fukushima-workshop ~~~ State Senate Listens, Will NRC Hear? http://www.fairewinds.org/nuclear-energy-education/state-senate-listens-will-nrc-hear ~~~ Voices From Chernobyl http://www.fairewinds.org/nuclear-energy-education/voices-from-chernobyl ~~~ Writing the Nuclear Meltdown Playbook http://www.fairewinds.org/nuclear-energy-education/writing-the-nuclear-meltdown-playbook ~~~ Decommissioning Stakeholders' Fund-amental Rights http://www.fairewinds.org/nuclear-energy-education/decommissioning-stakeholders-fund-amental-rights ~~~ Remove VY Carcass - Veto SAFSTOR http://www.fairewinds.org/nuclear-energy-education/remove-vy-carcass-veto-safstor ~~~ Alone in the Zone http://www.fairewinds.org/nuclear-energy-education/alone-in-the-zone ~~~ A Cheaper Way to Save http://preview.tinyurl.com/o72guhu ~~~ Nuclear Containment Risk http://preview.tinyurl.com/o5h7jh5

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.
