Cameco Responds To Port Hope Study

A Cameco spokesman says the company will not be rethinking how it conducts uranium mining in Saskatchewan because of a study last month into levels of uranium found in urine.


The study was conducted on residents of Port Hope, Ontario, where Cameco owns a uranium processing facility.


Gord Struthers says the amount of uranium found was normal.


Struthers says, if anything, the study illustrates that Cameco’s health monitoring practices work well.
