Niger withdraws France’s operating permit for one of the largest uranium mines

Sharing is Caring!

Niger has withdrawn the operating permit of the French state-owned company Orano for the Imouraren uranium mine, one of the largest in the world for the mineral used to make fuel for nuclear power plants, in a context of strong tensions between Paris and this African country.

In a statement published on Thursday, Orano indicates that it has received notification from the Nigerien authorities of the withdrawal of this permit just two weeks after having restarted its activity there.

With the current decision, the French group – which specialises in the extraction of uranium, the production of nuclear fuel and then its treatment once used – “is concerned about the negative impact” that this will have “on the economic, social and societal development of the region.”
