EPA say NO to Yeelirrie uranium mine ;-)

Header 2Hi everyone..

Today the EPA made the recommendation NOT to approve the Yeelirrie uranium mine proposal, you can read the EPA response to submissions here and the EPA report here.

Congratulations to all those involved and all of you who lodged submissions. The local pastoralists and Traditional Owners are overjoyed.

The Walkatjurra Walkabout is getting ready to head out this weekend for our 6th annual walk
After the announcement today there is a feeling that this years walk will be a bit of a celebration of today’s decision, although we are also aware that Cameco will not give up that easy this is still a great announcement that we were not expecting…

We must also remember that this is something that the local community has been fighting against for over 40 years..
