Say no to Toro

Toro Energy is now a step closer to opening WA's first uranium mine at Lake Way near Wiluna in WA's far east, right at the gateway to our celebrated Canning Stock route. This mine proposal jeopardises a number of protected species, some of which are found nowhere else in the world, and opens the door for the nuclear industry to expand its presence in this fragile desert ecosystem.

Toro Energy, a small-time player in the resource industry with no experience in mining of any kind, wants to open WA’s first uranium mine near the Goldfields community of Wiluna. The open air mine will produce thousands of tonnes of radioactive waste that, according to the government’s own advice, will need to be isolated for 10,000 years. The highly concentrated and highly radioactive uranium that is extracted will be trucked thousands of kilometres on public roads through WA communities to Adelaide or Darwin for export.

Despite being waved through by the Environmental Protection Authority, which is supposed to act as WA’s environmental watchdog, Toro's plan still needs the approval of the State and Federal Governments. Help us send a message to State Environment Minister Bill Marmion and Federal Environment Minister Tony Burke, letting them know that West Australians say no to the Wiluna uranium mine proposal at Lake Way and don't want to give the nuclear industry the chance to weasel their way into our state.

Please help keep WA clean of uranium mining. Sign the Uranium Free Charter on your left and help us call on our State and Federal Environment Ministers to restore justice and stop the nuclear madness on our precious country.
