I trust that you all kept well out of the dust that recently choked the eastern seaboard of Australia with red tailings from the exposed uranium tailings left out in the open in the Woomera region, directly west, at the common latitudes of 30 – 32 degrees.

Sharing the Woomera location is Roxby Downs/Olympic Dam mines and Beverley mines and Honeymoon mines; heard of them? They outline an area containing the richest Uranium deposits in the World. Uranium is mined here.

Tonnes of ‘over-burden’ is removed to expose the Uranium bearing ore. The Uranium ore is crushed and treated in a primary refinery and made into ‘Yellow Cake’. Discarded crushed materials are heaped up and are known as ‘tailings’. Much of the dust blowing from these mountains of ‘tailings’, contains a high percentage of Uranium particles – highly radioactive particles of Uranium.
Tailings contain 80% of the radioactivity of the original ore and according to safety guidelines, must remain isolated from the environment for many thousands of years. What was never taken into account is the fact that the wind picks up these tailings and carries them for thousands of miles into populated regions where people, animal, plant and marine life are exposed and vulnerable.

Be careful when washing your vehicle and dusting your rooms – it is so fine that breathing in the toxicity is easy. Spray Pink Shamrock in the air to reduce the ill-effects of this man-made potential disaster.

    I’m going to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a difficult time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
