Kakadu uranium mine begins operations again

THE uranium mine in the Northern Territory's Kakadu National Park has begun processing operations again, after a toxic spill at the mine.

A statement from Ranger mine operators Energy Resources Australia to the stock exchange on Thursday said the company took a $120 million hit from the stall.

The company stopped operations last year after a leak of acidic and radioactive slurry from pits onsite in December last year.

Federal Industry Minister Ian Macfarlane approved the re-opening of operations on Thursday, after an investigation into the leak.

That report, he said in a statement, gave the all-clear to restart processing uranium, as long as a site visit and second report on operations are provided in two weeks.
