CITIZENS AGAINST URANIUM MINING SHOW THE WEST AUSTRALIAN GOVERNMENT THAT YOU ARE OPPOSED TO URANIUM EXPLORATION AND MINING Citizens Against Uranium Mining is calling for a moratorium on uranium mining in Western Australia. Citizens Against Uranium Mining is calling for the reinstatement of the Ban on Uranium Mining put in place by the previous government. More information about the effects of uranium exploration and mining: * When uranium undergoes radioactive decay, highly radioactive elements are produced. * When exploratory drilling or mining occurs, elements such as radium and polonium are released to the environment. Both are readily carried in water, and cannot be removed by conventional water treatment facilities if those elements are present. * Radium has been described by medical authorities as a superb carcinogen. * It concentrates in the human body by substituting for the calcium in our bones. * Polonium is a very dangerous radioactive element. * It concentrates in the internal organs of our body and can result in a most unpleasant death. * Mining uranium releases large amounts of radon gas. Radon gas is radioactive and will follow the path of prevailing winds depositing solid radioactive fallout, mainly radioactive lead and polonium on a wide swath of land. * Radioactive deposits entering the food chain will pose a gradually accumulating health risk to the population, especially children. * There is inadequate monitoring for public health and safety.
