Ann Coxworth: Uranium mining legacy is expensive

“The cost of remediating surface waters to levels compatible with Saskatchewan surface water quality objectives is so overwhelming that we know it will never happen.” ~ Ann Coxworth

Read “Uranium mining legacy expensive,” a StarPhoenix piece by Ann Coxworth, a board member and research adviser at the Saskatchewan Environmental Society. She reminds us that while enthusiasm about benefits from the mining industry is being expressed, “we need to also remember the multimillion-dollar costs that are our province’s inheritance from past mining activities.”
