Shoot: Samples from Niger for Radiation Test

GP02DPP
Samples taken from Niger to be tested for radiation.
In November 2009 Greenpeace carried out soil, water and air tests in Arlit and Akokan, located a few kilometers from the Uranium mines in Niger operated by the state-owned French nuclear giant AREVA. The samples were studied in collaboration with the France-based Research and Independent Information on Radioactivity Commission (CRIIRAD).
The analysis performed show that the uranium contamination in four out of five water samples exceed World Health Organisation safety limits. There is evidence of radon, a radioactive gas dissolved in water and also chemical elements. Even so, this water is still being distributed to the population and the workers for consumption.
