CleanUpTheMines CharmaineWhiteFaceQuote from factsheet, compiled by Charmaine White Face for the Clean Up the Mines campaign:

"The Mining companies walked away from their clean up responsibilities after decades of mining, leaving the public to bear their toxic legacy. The costs for clean-up of these abandoned sites have been moved from the past uranium mining operators onto the general taxpayers, as have the public health and environmental costs of these toxic sites."
