Let's talk about Uranium Mining: Qld Govt
Queensland's Government is calling for public debate on uranium mining after miners urged it to lift a decades-long ban.
Resources Minister Andrew Cripps called for discussion on Friday after the Queensland Resources Council (QRC) said it was time to overturn the ban.
"Uranium mining has not been the subject of a serious public discussion in Queensland for many years," he told AAP. "The Queensland Government is keen to hear all views." The state's last uranium mine, Mary Kathleen, closed in 1982.
"A generation of Queenslanders have never experienced or contributed to this debate," Mr Cripps said. Western Australia and the Northern Territory currently allow uranium mining and QRC president Michael Roche said in an article on Friday it was time to follow suit. "The time is ripe for Queensland to move from uranium exploration to mining."
