Cameco McArthur River Virtual Tour
 
12:51
Watch this virtual tour from Cameco to learn about McArthur River, the world's largest high-grade uranium mine. Located in northern Saskatchewan, ore grades within the deposit are 100 times the world average, which means the operation can produce more than 18 million pounds of uranium each year by mining only 150 to 200 tonnes of ore per day.

Uranium City - Life After the Mine
 
07:09
Uranium City - Life after the mine in Saskatchewan As C-GRUG, a Cessna 172 dips and shudders towards Uranium City's dimly lit, cracked and re-tarred runway, McMurray Aviation pilot Brock radios in the plane's location to a nonexistent control tower. Silently, the shattered and desolated remains of homes slip into darkness beneath the plane. Streets, cul-de-sacs and treed alleyways are lined with empty homes. Some homes still have windows and walls -- for others, only a staircase leading to the sky remains. A barrage of trees and shrubs surround the homes -- eager to reclaim the land. Where humans still dwell, smoke traces lazily drift from the chimneys into the chilled northern air. Check out www.danielhayduk.com for the rest of the story!

11 Most Massive Mines in the World
 
10:20
From the worlds largest gold mine found on the top of a mountain to the largest diamond mine in the world here are the most massive mines in the world! Subscribe to American EYE! 5.. Asbestos Mine, Canada Also known as the Jeffrey Mine, it’s located in Asbestos, Quebec and it was in operation until 2012. It’s a whopping 2 kilometers wide and 370 meters deep! Check out this thing on google maps and you can tell how completely massive this thing is! It’s the by far the largest asbestos mine in the world. For a long period of time, people would use this mineral to put into their walls and keep their homes from catching on fire! But recently there’s been a link with asbestos and a disease called mesothelioma, which is a lung condition. This is a toxic substance that people should avoid, so obviously this large mine went out of business. The lake at the bottom might look like an inviting blue, but you can bet your bottom dollar, it’s highly toxic! The small town that grew with the thriving asbestos industry feels like they’ve kind of lost their identity once the mine was forced to close, but people do still live there. 4. Mcarthur River Uranium Mine In case you were wondering which mine produces the most uranium in the world, that would be of course the Mcarthur River uranium mine in Saskatchewan Canada. This huge deposit was found in 1988 and finally a mining operation took place in 1997, when it began producing what’s known as Yellowcake. It’s not the kind of yellow cake you’d eat with your grandparents. This stuff has a horrific odor and basically what it is, is concentrated uranium powder which can then be used for powering nuclear reactors. We imagine this powdery substance is quite difficult to get ahold of. There aren’t a ton of photos of this place but, it does produce about 13 percent of the global uranium production across the globe. 3. Diavik Diamond Mine In case you thought it was Africa who had all the massive diamond mines, think again! The Diavik Diamond mine, found in the the northwest territories of Canada is one of the largest producers of diamonds in the Northern hemisphere and this place is pretty crazy! They annually produce 7 million carats of diamonds each year and you better believe it’s not easy to get here. The Diavik mine is found north of the arctic circle and it’s definitely cold! This photo here shows the subarctic landscapes that surround the diamond mine. You thought getting to work in the morning was tough for you? Imagine trying to get to work here! Just recently in 2015, this diamond produced what was known as the Diavik Foxfire 187.7 which is one of the largest rough gem quality diamonds ever produced. 2. Siberian Diamond Mine Also known as the Mirny Mine, The USSR began searching for ways to make to make themselves a more economical stable and independent union. In 1955 the Soviets discovered large diamond deposits at this site in the far away lands of Siberia and many people got to work very quickly in order to help bring wealth to the union. After about 20 years of operations, they finally decided that At one point this mine produced 10 million carats of diamonds a year and reaches a max depth of 524 meters or around 1700 feet making it the 2nd largest excavated hole in the world. The mine is so deep, airspace is closed over the hole due to helicopter crashes caused from the downward flow of air. The construction of this in the frigid conditions of Siberia must have been grueling and downright cruel. Sources state that the machinery used at this mine had to be covered at night or it would freeze Are the diamonds worth freezing to death?! It’s unoperational today but Some claim that there’s still a bunch of diamonds in this mine and the whole thing could be worth about 12 Billion dollars. It’s possible that controlling this diamond is mine is crucial to controlling the price of diamonds across the world. Bingham Copper Mine The bingham copper mine located near Salt Lake City Utah is home to the biggest pit in the world and it’s been in operation since 1903. It’s about 2.5 miles wide and if it were a stadium, it would be able to fit an estimated 9.5 million people. It keeps getting bigger and bigger too! Diligent workers can move about 250,000 tons of rock each day and it’s even become a tourist attraction in recent years before a massive landslide took place. Some claim that this was the biggest non volcanic landslide to take place in North American modern history. This photo we see here shows you the aftermath of this massive landslide and Bingham Copper mine and it makes you wonder how safe some of the conditions at these mines truly are. The landslides were so massive, that they actually triggered a few small earthquakes! Experts estimated that 165 tons of earth slide down from the top of the mine all the way to the bottom.

48 hours: High Radon Exposures from Uranium Mine Flood
 
12:49
On April 6, 2003, the richest operating uranium mine in the world -- MacArthur River, in Northern Saskatchewan -- suffered a cave-in and was flooded with radioactive worker. For 48 hours workers were sent into the flooded areas to save the mine, without respirators, despite extremely high levels of radon gas in the mine atmosphere. Radiation monitors flashing alarms were turned off and ignored. Gordon Edwards was interviewed by CBC News one year after the event.

CRITICAL MASS : UNVEILING SASKATCHEWAN URANIUM
 
05:53
Since the early days of the atomic age, Canada uranium has been essential to the nuclear military strategy of the United States. Supplying the fuel for the Manhattan Project, uranium from the North West Territories was used in the Hiroshima atomic bomb that killed hundreds of thousands of civilians in Japan. It is likely that the plutonium used in the bomb that destroyed the city of Nagasaki Japan came through the Chalk River Ontario route as it was built for the purpose of supplying plutonium for US weapons. Critical Mass is a documentary film which unveils Saskatchewan's secret as an early supplier for the US nuclear weapons arsenal as well as a modern day supplier of uranium which goes into depleted uranium weapons still used throughout the middle east. CRITICAL MASS : UNVEILING SASKATCHEWAN URANIUM is a feature documentary film that examines our past implications and our present dilemma of an unrestrained uranium industry pushing for whole sale expansion of their industry. This film centers on a uranium partnership panel (presented as an expert panel to solve the climate crisis) and the largest ever public consultations which followed the panels report. CRITICAL MASS shows just what the province thinks about expanding the industry and gives the viewer an inside look at the promotional campaign waged against the citizens of Saskatchewan.

H.K Mittal: Geotechnical Fundamentals of Uranium Tailings Management in Canada
 
12:09
H.K. Mittal is a principal of H.K Mittal and Associates, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. H.K. Mittal discusses tailings pond design specific to uranium mines in northern Saskatchewan. The tailings ponds specifications come from over forty years of designing and operational experience with tailings pit ponds in Saskatchewan. Specific tailings pit design (a pervious round) and specific requirements for the tailings themselves (they must be consolidated) informs the operation of the mine especially during winter. Winter operations result in frozen tailings which are a liability since they must be thawed to get full consolidation of the tailings. These problems have led to disposal of the tailings underwater and then the surface water and the tailings are dewatered. Once the surface layer has dried down, a filter cloth is laid and then surface fill is spread while the surface layer is still frozen late in the spring. Highlights of the current practices are presented in the paper associated with this presentation. H.K. Mittal's presentation was part of the Tailings and Mine Waste Conference, Banff, Alberta on November 3-6, 2013.

Bridge to Nowhere: Patuanak Saskatchewan
 
00:45
The proposal to build a nuclear waste repository in northern Saskatchewan is, predictably, very contentious. The federal act governing the disposal of spent nuclear fuel rods and other waste products from the uranium chain is complicated to read and extremely convoluted in practice. For people in northern Saskatchewan who oppose the dumping of spent nuclear fuel in their region, a bridge that crosses the Churchill River (a Canadian Heritage River, by the way) is alarming. The bridge, at this point, goes nowhere. It does however, link southern roads with the north shore of the river that is English River First Nations Treaty Land and is the area where the proposed waste dump has been suggested. Given that the Nuclear Waste Management Organization (NWMO) has not reached a deal with local communities to even build a site in the region, why is this bridge here? Interesting question, few answers. Lionel Hughes is the editor at Prairies North: the magazine of Saskatchewan. www.prairiesnorth.com

Uranium Mining Leaves Toxic Nuclear Legacy on Indigenous Land
 
14:16
The iconic Grand Canyon is the site of a battle over toxic uranium mining. Last year, a company called Energy Fuels Resources was given federal approval to reopen a mine six miles from the Grand Canyon's popular South Rim entrance. A coalition of Native and environmental groups have protested the decision, saying uranium mining could strain scarce water sources and pose serious health effects. Diné (Navajo) tribal lands are littered with abandoned uranium mines. From 1944 to 1986, 3.9 million tons of uranium ore were chiseled and blasted from the mountains and plains of the region. More than 1,000 mines have closed, but the mining companies never properly disposed of their radioactive waste piles, leading to a spike in cancer rates and other health ailments.
