Description:

Mining vs. the Environment: Does Namibia need another Uranium Mine?

Summary / Notes:

Presently, LAC is investigating the proposed construction of the Langer Heinrich Uranium Mine in the Namib Naukluft National Park, near Swakopmund. The issues surrounding this proposal are many. Firstly, the proposed area lies within a national park. Secondly, the proposed area is an environmentally sensitive desert region, where the rate of ecological recovery is extremely slow. Thirdly, there exist worries regarding increased water consumption, necessitated by both the construction and operation of the proposed mine, in an area that is already potentially heading towards a severe water shortage. Finally, there are concerns, harbored by both the LAC and other interested parties, thatrnthe process through which a mining license is obtained may be fundamentally flawed.
