What a fanastic outcome for the State. It shows that the Barnett Government is focussed on WA, mining jobs, and the environment. It will also allow WA to play a MAJOR ROLE in the mitigation of greenhouse gases through the use of nuclear power, especially in China and India. Well done Cameco Mike Young CEO Vimy Resources Limited

Are you serious? This is a disgrace on a global level! Keep uranium in the ground where it belongs. Nuclear power is not clean energy. The ridiculous amount of nuclear waste proves that. Only a small amount of what is dug up is converted into energy and that also takes a hell of a lot of our previous water resources. Anyone with a brain that values life over money understands that uranium is not the answer. Nuclear mining.. you may as well shit in your hands and clap. Cheers to all those responsible for this. I raise to you a nice fresh glass from Wiluna townships contaminated drinking water after the tailings leaked into the ground water. Fingers crossed our double helixs mutate in an efficient manner.

Well it's about time, this deposit has been sitting idle since the1980s, the construction and mining industry will benefit emensly, not to mention the direct full time jobs and the flow on for suppliers and small business in WA. Well done to all and at last we will see another Mining up turn with a long Mine life.

Clearly Roe 8 has set a precedent for Minister Jacob - environmental conditions are simply suggestions, not requirements.
