Environmental impact of brown coal and uranium mining in East Germany (Documentary, 1991)
 
50:55
In the aftermath of the collapse of the Soviet Union the world became aware of the devastating impact on the environment and on the health of the people by brown coal and uranium mining in the former East Germany and Czechoslovakia. SAG/SDAG Wismut was a uranium mining company in East Germany during the time of the cold war. It produced a total of 230,400 tonnes of uranium between 1947 and 1990 and made East Germany the fourth largest producer of uranium ore in the world at the time. It was the largest single producer of uranium ore in the entire sphere of control of the USSR. In 1991 after German reunification it was transformed into the Wismut GmbH company, owned by the Federal Republic of Germany, which is now responsible for the restoration and environmental cleanup of the former mining and milling areas. The head office of SDAG Wismut / Wismut GmbH is in Chemnitz-Siegmar. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wismut_(mining_company) Original title: Black Triangle A film by Ron Orders © 1991, Licensed by Cinecontact Subscribe to wocomoHISTORY: https://goo.gl/oXDoxY Follow us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/wocomo

Report - Gabon:The impact of Areva's uranium mining For 40 years Comuf, a subsidiary of French nuclear giant Areva, mined uranium in the town of Mounana, in southern Gabon. The operation has had serious consequences for the health of the workers and locals. Many former miners, both Gabonese and French, have died of lung cancer. Under pressure from NGOs, Areva opened a medical clinic last October. But the staff here don't all have the training or resources to properly diagnose diseases linked to uranium mining.

Protection Against Radioactivity in Uranium Mines 1969 US Bureau of Mines
 
25:12
This film from the United States Bureau of Mines presents general descriptions of the hazards of radon daughters in uranium mines, and outlines the environmental control, principles and procedures for mitigating the hazard. Scenes of underground mines show the origin and reason of the hazard, and various methods of ventilation are shown on how to correct the condition. 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. Some US officials and scientists advocated ventilation requirements in US mines as a proactive, preventative measure during the 1950s, on the basis of their knowledge of European experience. Duncan Holaday, an industrial hygienist with the PHS, has generally been recognized as the most prominent advocate for ventilation. He led the effort to obtain measurements of radon in the mines, and he used the data to argue forcefully within the government that ventilation would be effective and was feasible. His arguments achieved only limited success, as there was government resistance to requiring ventilation and his views were not made public at the time. The Atomic Energy Commission (AEC) was an obstacle. In the late 1940s, controversy erupted in the New York Operations Office over the hazards from beryllium and uranium mining. The AEC wrote worker health requirements in contracts with companies that handled beryllium. After conflicting recommendations from staff, it chose not to establish such requirements for uranium. It claimed to lack legal authority, but it did not explain the legal difference between uranium and beryllium. The AEC did not lack knowledge: records of a January 25, 1951, internal meeting of AEC and PHS staff reveal that, on the basis of early measurements, they believed that radon was present in levels that would cause cancer and that ventilation could abate the hazard. Public acknowledgment of this problem was apparently squelched. For instance, Hueper, the scientist who wrote the 1942 review and who was then at the National Cancer Institute, was forbidden to speak in public about his concerns about the health hazard of radon in uranium mines. It is reported that he was even forbidden to travel west of the Mississippi, lest he say too much to the wrong people. 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 .

"A Slow Genocide of the People": Uranium Mining Leaves Toxic Nuclear Legacy on Indigenous Land
 
17:31
http://www.democracynow.org - The iconic Grand Canyon is the site of a battle over toxic uranium mining. Last year, a company called Energy Fuels Resources was given federal approval to reopen a mine six miles from the Grand Canyon's popular South Rim entrance. A coalition of Native and environmental groups have protested the decision, saying uranium mining could strain scarce water sources and pose serious health effects. Diné (Navajo) tribal lands are littered with abandoned uranium mines. From 1944 to 1986, 3.9 million tons of uranium ore were chiseled and blasted from the mountains and plains of the region. More than 1,000 mines have closed, but the mining companies never properly disposed of their radioactive waste piles, leading to a spike in cancer rates and other health ailments. Broadcasting from Flagstaff, Arizona, we speak with Taylor McKinnon, director of energy with Grand Canyon Trust, and Klee Benally, a Diné (Navajo) activist and musician. "It's really a slow genocide of the people, not just indigenous people of this region, but it's estimated that there are over 10 million people who are residing within 50 miles of abandoned uranium mines," Benally says. Benally also describes the struggle to preserve the San Francisco Peaks, an area considered sacred by 13 Native tribes, where the Snowbowl ski resort is using treated sewage water to make snow.

Summary of workshops with Jim Harding (facilitator) (Canada) Retired professor, University of Regina THE SYMPOSIUM The World Uranium Symposium addressed issues arising from the nuclear fuel chain, from mining uranium to its end-uses and byproducts for civilian or military purposes. Both scientific and community-based, the Symposium was organized around the following themes: health, environment, economy, ethics, governance, human rights and the rights of indigenous peoples. Open to the public, the symposium had hosted more than 300 people per day from 14 to 16 April 2015, and had included local, national and international representatives from the sectors of health, research, industry, education, civil society, policy makers and indigenous communities. local, national and/or international media were present. All presentations of the symposium will be posted in electronic formats (text and / or videos) after the Symposium, in French and / or English. • April 14 (Day 1): Uranium mines and the nuclear life cycle : health and environmental issues • April 15 (Day 2): Civil and military nuclear : ethics, economics and political issues • April 16 (Day 3): Human rights, indigenous peoples' rights and governance issues ORGANIZATIONS INVOLVED The Symposium is jointly organized by Physicians for Global Survival (1985 Nobel Peace Prize), the Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment, Nature Québec, the Canadian Coalition for Nuclear Responsibility and the Coalition pour que le Québec ait meilleure mine. It also receives support from the International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War (Swiss chapter), the First Nations of Quebec and Labrador Sustainable Development Institute, the Cree Nation of Mistissini, MiningWatch Canada, and a number of other local, national and international partners. CONTEXT The Symposium is occurring at a time when many organizations and governments question the future of nuclear power, currently providing about 11% of the world’s electricity. The year 2015 also marks the seventieth anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and the corresponding United Nations negotiations of the Non Proliferation Treaty for the prevention and the abolition of nuclear arms. It will also see the tabling on a new UN treaty on climate change. Canada is one of the largest producers and exporters of uranium worldwide, yet its nuclear energy output is in relative decline. Only two provinces still operate nuclear reactors: Ontario and New Brunswick. While uranium has been primarily mined from Saskatchewan, the provinces of British Columbia and Nova Scotia have officially banned uranium mining. Quebec recently shut down its sole nuclear reactor and has tasked the Bureau d’audiences publiques sur l’environnement (BAPE) with conducting an investigation on issues related to uranium mining. It is expected to release its report by May 20 2015. The Symposium aims to tackle these different issues and to provide recommendations to decision makers to better ensure protection for the human health, global security and a safe environment

WE ARE THE LAND, Uranium Mining in the Black Hills
 
17:22
"WE ARE THE LAND, Uranium Mining in the Black Hills" A new documentary film from Christopher Crosby Produced by PK Productions LLC and the Institute of Range and American Mustang. ABOUT "WE ARE THE LAND" - Governments and the uranium industry say the mining and milling of uranium provides high-paying and much-needed jobs in some of the most remote areas of the country, with manageable environmental risks. But it's an industry that has long attracted its share of controversy. This is a major concern for the Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary in western South Dakota, and other residents including environmental and conservation groups. The Sierra Club of South Dakota warns that water pollution will be a major concern if the mining company Powertech is given a permit to mine for uranium. The Sierra Club's Black Hills Group, says there's a high likelihood that aquifers will become polluted if an injection-well recovery system is used to mine the ore. Powertech Inc USA has submitted its uranium mining application to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission and it can be viewed at the NRC website. The NRC has announced a time period for interested individuals to voice their concerns regarding the uranium mine's impacts to the environment. This proposed uranium mine will be the first time folks can be heard under the new GEIS. "It's going to be my last great battle, but I'm going to win this one." says Hyde. The Institute of Range and American Mustang owns 13,000 acres of private land dedicated to range preservation and a balanced ecosystem. I.R.A.M.'s finest gift is The Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary, whose purpose is to provide not only freedom for unadoptable and unwanted wild horses, but also a research area dedicated to solving wild horse herd management that will contribute to the well-being of wild horses everywhere. http://www.wildmustangs.com Dayton O. Hyde, Founder and President Institute of Range and the American Mustang.

Environmental Festival Film 2015 - Albania. This short film aims to demonstrate the environmental impacts of chromium ore mines in Mati River springs at Krasta Region in Bulqiza district. In recent years the mining sector has been intensively developed but without environmental criteria. From the site surveys during 28/29 March 2015 it is noted an intense environmental impact as; mine waste disposal at river stream, sparse access roads associated with habitat fragmentation and induced erosion; loss of productive soil and threatening of red list endemic plant species (Crocus serpentini). The mining operations use also wood timber that is an added burden to the existing over cut forests in the area. We want to raise the awareness the public and other stakeholders that such mining is destroying the environmental resources and society health and prospective. The legislation to prevent such impacts exists but must be enforced from authorities. The companies must take their environmental and social responsibility; Investing little today will save our future. Civil society and the public must put under pressure the enforcement authorities and raise their voice for such catastrophic situation. We hope that this short movie will scratch everybody conscience to help in the environmental protection.

An investigation into the nuclear industry and its actions in Africa, the film examines Africa’s power needs and the consequences of using nuclear energy. Africa’s development is being held back by its poor infrastructure and undersize power plants. Countries like Uganda can produce only a quarter of the energy needed, leading to daily power cuts with a disastrous impact on the economy.
