Activities and studies
- Geotechnical investigation
Preliminary assessment of the structural integrity of the former Port Pirie Treatment Plant tailings impoundments. Completed 2005.
- Surface alpha contamination survey
Radiological testing of buildings prior to demolition. Completed 2005.
- Waste qualification/site survey
To quantify all existing wastes, covers etc as well as locate all services, boundaries etc. Completed 2005
- Resource economic potential evaluation
To determine what economic value and potential remain (if any) in the residue products onsite, namely the tailings resulting from the original extraction of uranium from the Radium Hill mine ore. Completed 2006
- Hydrogeological investigation
Provide sufficient data and information to be able to achieve a greater understanding of the local hydrology. Completed 2006.
- Groundwater sampling and monitoring
To determine what mechanisms and processes are occurring with respect to hydrogeological conditions at the site. Commenced 2006 - ongoing
- Plant site cleanup
Disposal of remaining plant and equipment.
- Risk assessment and control scoping study
To quantify and assess the level of risk associated with the site with respect to both radiological and non-radiological impacts.
