The uranium ore mining association aims to promote and expand the uranium industry, and ensure that it continues to operates in a safe and efficient manner.
This is achieved by:
- Developing policy that ensures a stable investment climate.
- Ensure regulatory and compliance arrangements that relate to the scientific and physical properties of uranium are in place.
- Highlighting that the industry is operationally responsible, both in terms of its relationship with indigenous communities and environmental considerations.
- Gaining acceptance from the broader community more generally.
The uranium ore association conducts and funds various research activities, which reflects its core value of research-based advocacy.
This research plays an important role in the development of policy proposals that relate specifically to the uranium industry in Australia.
The uranium ore mining association produces Australian Uranium, a newsletter that contains detailed information about research and policy matters that are of relevance to the export, exploration and mining of uranium.
Useful information is also published on the association’s official website on a regular basis, for the benefit of its members and other uranium industry professionals.
Members are responsible for funding the uranium ore mining association, of which there are 31. The uranium ore association is comprised of a Board, which consists of full and participating members, representatives of associate members and the executive director.
