Ratepayers paying for uranium search

0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!

The Petroleum and Minerals Division of the Ministry of Business Development, or whatever it wishes to call itself today, has persuaded several regional councils, Southland and Northland and several in between, to convince their ratepayers that they should pay for airborne magnetic and radiometric surveys.  In their abysmal naivete councillors swallowed this nonsense hook, line and sinker.  Regional and district councils, and thus their ratepayers, will get next to nothing for their money, if anything at all.  Airborne magnetic and radiometric surveys will provide information for mineral search and the search for uranium.  The search for uranium and other radioactive elements is the prorogative of the government alone.  Ratepayers should not be contributing to the cost of search for uranium.  Readers may well ask why they should pay attention to me.  I am, I think, the only geologist in New Zealand who has been the Project Geologist, on site, developing three uranium orebodies (in South Australia) and the only person in New Zealand, I think, who has worked for the International Atomic Energy Agency as an expert uranium exploration geologist.
