SMH reported shipping uranium through the Great Barrier Reef is a possible consideration for the Queensland government.
As quoted in the market news:
The comments come as the United Nation’s environmental arm considers whether to list the reef as a World Heritage site in danger.
In a report earlier this year, UNESCO identified shipping as one of the most pressing threats to the reef’s future.
The Queensland government this month lifted a long-standing ban on the mining of uranium in Queensland, despite saying before and after the March election it had no plans to do so.
