Petition against uranium mine in the karoo

June 8, 2016 deur afriministrator

An Australian company funded by Russia has obtained over 750 000 hectares of property in the vicinity of Beaufort West. The company also plans to build a large processing plant just outside this town. The environmental impact assessment is nearing completion, with the next step applying for a mining licence from the Department of Mineral Resources.

AfriForum plans to hand a petition to the Minister of Mineral Resources to convince the Department that this project will lead to the total destruction of a large part of the Karoo ecosystem.

You can partake by signing the petition. Also ask your friends and family to sign the petition.
