Failed AREVA, failed ORANO leave a toxic uranium mess in Niger

RFI 31st March 2021, Niger: closure of one of the largest uranium mines. One of the world’s
largest underground uranium mines is closing. The Akouta Mining Company (Cominak), a subsidiary of Orano Cycle (French multinational, ex-Areva), which had been exploiting uranium deposits in the province of Agadez, north
of Niger since 1978, stops production on Wednesday March, 31st.

A closure carried out in unsatisfactory conditions for the NGOs which denounce, beyond the social cost, a heavy legacy which will have health and environmental consequences.
