Keep NSW free from uranium exploration

    1. Petition by

      Uranium Free NSW

From November 13, NSW Resources Minister Chris Hartcher can choose to allow applications for uranium exploration from mining companies.

There is currently no uranium mining or exploration in NSW: please tell Chris Hartcher you want it to stay that way!

Uranium exploration and mining presents risks to workers, local communities and the environment, and will leave a lasting radioactive legacy for future generations.

      We must preserve nature by not mining for Uranium. We have always been known as the lucky country for a reason. We do not need to feel pressured by other countries to follow their example of mining while we still have a chance to save & preserve our beautiful country of ours.

      Mine Uranium in very remote areas only, no place in NSW I would call very remote. Uranium far too dangerous to transport through NSW. Mine it in WA, SA and NT only.
