ABSTRACT
The article presents the author's opinions on uranium mining in Australia. According to the article author, any new entrants into uranium prospecting in Australia would face almost insurmountable barriers to actually mining and selling the radioactive metal. But rational voices are emerging from the emotional debate, calling for a lifting of Australia's restrictions on the production and export of uranium. Australia is credited with having about 40 percent of the world's known exploitable reserves.
