November 2007. Under current South Australian legislation, the mining of real uranium and the polluting of real groundwater is permitted without an assessment of its potential environmental impacts or even public consultation. This occurs when a mining company is granted a “retention lease”, allowing it to mine radioactive ores on a so-called “trial” basis before obtaining a commercial mining lease.
