Mine Visit
On 17 October, a site visit was undertaken to the Urgeiriça Uranium and Radium Mine, which is an underground mine that used conventional techniques until 1973 and, after that, in-situ leaching to recover low-grade ore.  A uranium mill facility was also built nearby for ore processing.  The visit was organized by Empresa de Desenvolvimento Mineiro, SA (EDM), which is the state enterprise responsible for the restoration of mining sites in Portugal. Technical details relating to the remediation of the mine were explained during the visit.
