Radioactive waste in Taboshar
Philippe Rekacewicz, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
The Taboshar uranium mining site stands on the southern edge of the Kuramin Mountains close the Uzbek - Tajik border. The site consists of a non - rehabilitated open mine, dismantled production buildings, and three tailing sites storing 10 m tones of low grade processed uranium ore. The town of Taboshar with its 12000 inhabitants is only a few kilometers away.
