South Australia and Canada to share uranium knowledgeadmin
An agreement will soon be signed between South Australia and a Canadian province that will see a sharing of knowledge on uranium and other minerals.
The Primary Industries Department says the proposed collaboration is with Saskatchewan in central Canada, which has a similar geology to South Australia.
The Department’s geological survey manager, Mark McGeough, says a lot can be learned from the province, especially about uranium, which is less controversial there.
“I think from an Australian perspective we could learn a lot from how uranium and the issue of uranium is handled in Canada,” he said.
“There’s a number of provinces where they accept both uranium mining, processing and some states or provinces in Canada actually have nuclear power.”
