The Uranium Mine Remediation Exchange Group meetings of representatives from US, Canada, Australia and Germany have been going on since 1993. The novelty of UMREG 2002 was that the traditional group from was extended to representatives from CEEC, which have a history of uranium mining and milling and are presently involved or interested in environmental remediation (ER) of the legacy. The meeting was attended and/or presentations given by representatives from Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Poland, Rumania, Russian Fed. and Slovenia. Furthermore, representatives from overseas countries, Brazil, Japan and Namibia having a present or historical uranium mining and the intent to remediate the consequences of the mining provided a contribution. The extended UMREG membership confirms the increasing interest in ER remediation and in following the “Good Environmental Remediation Practice” guidelines and provides a broader idea pool for the future UMREG meetings.
