Mining uranium: how safe is it and why do it? Myths and ...

2020-11-4  Indeed, today the uranium mining process's impact on the environment is minimal. After mining, the involved territory is reclaimed (of course, if needed; with a forest sitting on the surface and during mining, the need disappears altogether). Reclamation takes place most effectively using the underground leaching method.
