Russia (Baikal) – Romanovka Uranium Mine


Carelessly dumped wastes with high residual radioactivity were identified in two pits. Local specialists and volunteers, with the approval of administration and environmental committee staff, covered the two dangerous ditches with fresh and safe soil, following advice from Blacksmith’s Technical Advisory Board. The Environmental Center also conducted a teaching workshop to educate community members of the potential risks, raise public awareness of mining impacts, and recommend personal steps to avoid future exposure.
