What the Olympic Dam expansion means for all Australians. BHP Billiton want federal and state government approval to bring 70 million tonnes of radioactive ore to the surface every year for the next 50-100 years. Because of the sheer volume of tailings – the waste material left over after the uranium and valuable minerals are extracted – will be largely dumped on the surface at the mine site. Produced by David Bradbury, Front Line Films.
