Decommissioning Mines

Decommissioning a mine involves permanently ending the mining operation and returning the mine site to as close to original condition as possible. Today, companies that plan to extract uranium ore must have approved plans in place for the restoration of the mine site prior to its establishment. Decommissioning includes the removal of buildings and storage facilities, safe disposal of all hazardous materials, land reclamation and long term environmental monitoring.
