      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
