Wismut’s long shadow

Partners of the Saxon-Polish project MineLife have visited the legacy of uranium mining in the surroundings of Bad Schlema on September 4 and 5, 2019. In the Ore Mountains, uranium was mined on military order of the Soviet Union between 1946 and 1990, often without consideration of the environmental impact. Participants of the event learned on site about the revitalisation of legacies of uranium mining.
