In India, Uranium Corporation of India UCIL was served a notice for illegally drawing river water at its Jaduguda uranium mine in Jharkand. In Australia, uranium concentrations in tailings seepage at the Ranger uranium mine in the Northern Territory were 5400 times background, and the regulator says it will be impossible to rehabilitate the site.
The Jaduguda Mine also spelt as Jadugoda or Jadugora is a uranium mine in Jaduguda village in the Purbi Singhbhum district of the Indian state of Jharkhand.It commenced operation in 1967 and was the first uranium mine in India. 1 The deposits at this mine were discovered in 1951. As of March 2012, India only possesses two functional uranium mines, including this Jaduguda Mine. 2

The PHS began the study in 1950 because of concerns that uranium mining causes lung cancer. We know that miners were not informed of these concerns at the time. We call it a mortality study because it looks at whether miners have been dying of certain diseases at a higher than normal rate.
UCIL, which began mining nine years before India first tested an atom bomb in 1974, doubled its daily production of uranium ore to 2000 tonnes in 2001. Its three uranium mines at Jaduguda, Bhatin and Narwapahar with a processing and by-products recovery plant at Jaduguda are the source of uranium for Indias 10 nuclear power stations.
number of health related issues that exists in the uranium mining areas which needs maximum attention. There are questions which are needed to be enquired, for instance, the influence of uranium mining on the health of the local community and to explore the impact of uranium mining on employees of the mining companies Vis-a- Vis non-employee.
Nov 01, 2008 The uranium mines at Jaduguda and nearby areas of the Singhbhum thrust belt of Jharkhand State are the only operating mines in India, which supply fuel to nuclear power plants. The gamma radiation dose rates observed at different locations 1 m above the tailings surface vary from 0.8 to 3.3 Gy h 1 .
The discovery of world class uranium ore deposits within the area proposed as national park brought together a triumvirate of issues that created, and continues as, a contentious mix of conservation, uranium mining and indigenous social justice issues. At about the same time as the uranium
The area has a total of 7 uranium mines namely, Jaduguda, Bhatin, Turmadih, Bagjata, Narwapahar, Banduhurang, and Mohuldih. Mining activity in India started in the year 1967 at Jaduguda mines which brought a whole new nuclear revolution in the country and a whole new scar to the tribal town of Jaduguda, Indias best-kept secret.
Uranium bearing minerals occur in very finely disseminated form. Ore lenses are hosted in metamorphic rocks of Proterozoic age. Mining operations at Jaduguda began in the year 1967. Jaduguda Mine has the distinction of being the first Uranium Mine of the country. The mine is accessed through a 5 metre diameter vertical shaft of depth of 640 metre.
Uranium Mining in Jaduguda. In 1951, the search for uranium began in India, and the exploration led to Jaduguda also spelled Jadugoda, a rural area in a small township adjoining the industrial city of Jamshedpur, then in the eastern Indian state of Bihar. Jaduguda is
Jaduguda uranium ore can be enriched to 0.065-grade, making it highly valuable for nuclear power generation. The yellowcake produced Jaduguda is sent to nine nuclear reactors in India. To obtain about 65 grams of usable uranium, UCIL needs to mine, grind and process 1000 tonnes of uranium ore. The waste is thrown into the tailing ponds.
