Actually, guys, we could indeed "mine" the DU that we've
already accumulated, as Peter suggests, and we probably will (but it
will take a while to get going). Using the plutonium from used LWR
fuel as the essential catalyst to get started, fast reactors such as
the IFR and its ilk (PRISM, TWR, 4S, etc) can power the world for
centuries on the uranium that's already been mined -- and with no
more uranium enrichment needed, ever.

The continued mining of uranium is a symptom of the profound sickness
of our government and the corporations it serves, well demonstrated
by our preference for death over life. All mining should be stopped
worldwide. We can mine the huge deposits of DU on the premises of
every nuclear plant.
By continuing to mine, we are saying that money is more important
than life, that we don't care about God's Creation, that our own
lives are expendable in the pursuit of money. We prostrate ourselves
before the Golden Calf!
We must DO something! --Peter G Cohen
