Individual deposits are identified by scouts and exploited by the help of metal detectors and to a lesser extent with sieves.

The company gets much of its uranium from the two mines it operates in the country, at Arlit and Imouraren. Arlit was attacked by militants three years ago and four hostages -- three French nationals among them -- are still being held.Asked if he could confirm that French Special Forces are now guarding the uranium mine, President Issoufou told channel TV5: "Absolutely I can confirm." Niger's uranium mines are a major source of raw material for French nuclear power plants, so observers wonder if energy resources are a factor in the West's increased interest in the African continent. For more on that, RT talks to the director of studies at the Institute of democracy and cooperation in Paris, John Laughland. http://LeakSource.wordpress.com http://twitter.com/LeakSourceNews

WE DO NOT OWN THE MATERIAL EXCLUSIVELY, BUT HAVE A LICENSE CONTRACT FOR INTERNET STREAMING. If unavailable in your territory, or if you are interested in other license requests (feature movie, television, documentary, commercial...), please contact Javafilms: contact@javafilms.fr Story The African continent is rapidly developing itself economically. The only bottleneck in this process are readily available resources. Besides money these mainly consist of poor infrastructure and availability of energy, especially electricity. Economically booming countries like for example Uganda still have a lot to gain when a steady supply of power is provided. Nowadays in Uganda the power plants can only cater for roughly 30% of the countries demand and even new hydraulic power projects in the Nile will not solve this problem. Nuclear power therefor seems the most cost effective solution for most of the African nations including Uganda. Western companies such as the French Areva fiercely lobby for more power plants on the continent. But is Atomic Energy the best solution for unstable regimes? And what does Atomic Energy and the mining of uranium mean for the wellbeing and safety of the local population and the environment? Social Interest Ever since the first nuclear reactor was build in Africa in Congo in 1958 there have been safety concerns, cause within the whole process of the production of nuclear energy a lot of things can go wrong, willingly and unwillingly, with possible devastating consequences for people and environment. For instance in 2007 the head of the Congolese research institute was arrested for illegally selling nuclear fuel rods. Also in Niger the highway where the mined uranium is transported on runs through rebel territory associated with Al-Qaida. The war in neighbouring Mali makes this transport even more risky. Besides the risks of fuel rods ending up in the wrong hands the mining of uranium itself poses danger to people and environment as well. Legal and illegal mining operations destroy ecosystems and leave the miners with radiation poisoning . Historical and Political Relevance Nuclear power, the right to enrich uranium and develop the technology to exploit its energy, has always been a difficult point in international politics. In the Cold War the threat mainly came from the war talk and power displays of archenemies the United States and the Soviet Union which both had a gigantic nuclear arsenal. As the cold war ended the threat of a nuclear war declined. However the nuclear disaster in a power plant in Chernobyl a few years earlier proved that the benefits of nuclear power also pose a big potential threat in case of incidents. However, this incident did not stop more countries from starting a nuclear program with a wide range of experiments While in the last decade the interest of the West in Nuclear power seems to decline some new players on the nuclear market, with questionable regimes like Iran and North Korea , are causing much international debate about the right to develop nuclear power. The rapidly developing African continent is in serious need of energy and has always been rich in raw resources to produce energy and is now slowly developing the knowledge to exploit them. The African continent may well be on the verge of a nuclear revolution so the political discussion about the right to use nuclear energy is more relevant than ever. Because not only questionable regimes can pose a potential threat, also war and especially terrorism are extremely dangerous, since it takes a single rocket fired by a single person to blow up a nuclear power plant.

LEAD IN : The recent conflict in Mali did not slow the pace of development in the capital, Bamako. As the city expands, the demand for building materials is growing, and this is having consequences on the environment. The mighty Niger river has traditionally provided a livelihood for the people that live along its banks. Now the need for sand from the river is threatening the traditional industries of fishing and oil. Some fear the exploitation of the river bed has consequences for the delicate equilibrium of the river. But for the sand divers that plunder the river banks, the rewards are rich. STORYLINE : The sand divers begin their journey at sunrise, setting off by pirogue (traditional boats) along the River Niger. They travel fifty kilometres (31 miles) from the Kalaban-Koro harbour in the Mali capital, Bamako to set anchor in Djoliba. The waterway has traditionally been the source of oil and food for many that live along the river. But now the dig for sand is changing the way of life on the river. Many of the sand workers come from the north of Mali, and are residents of cities on the banks of the Niger. Mining sand is more profitable than setting fishing nets. Each man can earn up to 6 500 FCFA (Franc de la Communaut� Financi�re d'Afrique) a day (10 euros/ $14 US Dollars) which is a good salary in Mali, where the legal minimum salary is 45 euros ($62 dollars) per month. When they arrive at the spot in the river that they want to mine, they strip off and jump into the river, returning to the surface with buckets full of sand dredged from the riverbed. The sand divers work without breathing aids and often dive as deep as three metres to dig out the sand by hand. Toure, a sand diver originally from Timbukutu says that it is hard work but the rewards are worth it. " I can say that everything is difficult in this work. Water is cold, work in itself is hard. There is nothing easy but it's noble work. We earn our living by the sweat of our brow." After just two or three hours the pirogues are full and the men join up to fifteen boats, laden with sand, together for the journey home. Back in Bamako it will be sold for use in the construction industry for the booming city. But the industry has attracted criticism from the government agency responsible for the Niger river. Bougouzanga Goita is the director of the Niger River Agency, a government body. He says that sand mining is not regulated and it is harming the delicate river environment. " A study showed that sand mining is digging the bottom of the river, which has consequences on banks collapsing. And when 'fish house' is disturbed there is consequences on fish reproduction. Egg-laying is disturbed, eggs are exposed " A report published in 2011 was carried out by IRD (Institut de recherche pour le d�veloppement) carried out in 2011, a French research organisation which studies the relationship between man and its environment, in Africa, Mediterranean, Latin America, Asia and the French tropical overseas territories, in collaboration with Malian National Direction of Hydraulique and French universities. It found that between 15 and 20 millions of cubic metres (m3) of material may have been taken from the river between 2000 and 2006 from around 90 miles (144 kilometres) north from Bamako to 90 miles (144 kilometres) south from Bamako. The report authors warned that the river is actually becoming deeper in places, by several centimetres annually and that depletion of the river bed resulted in the loss of arable land, deterioration of infrastructure, bridges etc and loss of fisheries, due to fishing being disturbed and lack of access of local people to water sources.
