Uranium Mining on the Rocks in Queensland

Uranium – Queensland is no stranger when it comes to banning uranium mining. Though the metal was mined in the state in the 1950s, that ended after the closure of the Mary Kathleen mine in 1982, and uranium mining was eventually prohibited by the state's Labor Party-led government in 1989. That ban ended in 2012 when government leadership switched to the Liberal-National Party, but it looks like it's set to come back in full force.
