Leaking Waste Water of Talvivaara Mine Includes Uranium 100-200 Bq/l

According to STUK - Finnish Radiation Protection Authority - leaking water from Talvivaara mine has uranium more than expected, 100 - 200 Bequerels per litre. In Finnish natural water there is normally uranium about 1 Bq/l , so the amount of this radioactive poisonous substance is hundreds of times the natural background value.

Finnish officials fear that the escape of uranium and heavy metal acid water to downriver waters cannot be prevented. The company has found the leaking spot at the waste water pond, but contaminated water is still leaking out.
