Midwest Uranium Project EIS Review (Saskatchewan, Canada)

This project seeks to expand uranium mining and milling in the world famous Athabasca Basin in northern Saskatchewan, which is the source of 1/3 of the world's uranium. Recently, the cost of fossil fuels and the increased demand for uranium has reignited exploration in the region, promising employment and development opportunities, but historically has left in its wake a legacy of abandoned mines and concerned citizens. As stakeholders, the remote communities in the region (many of which are First Nation) are increasingly burdened with the environmental costs of such exploration and have requested assistance in interpreting the multitude of EISs which will have dramatic effects on their traditional ways of life
