Uranium is a seroius business, as it sells for about US$44 dollars a pound, that's about NZ$78.75284 as of the current market. It requires strict rules and regulations, like the Australian's "Code of Practice and Safety Guide for Radiation Protection and Radioactive Waste Management in Mining and Mineral Processing" and the Canadian's "Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission". There is a lot of radioactivity in the business, and a no-nonsense crew is required. The process of extracting Uranium is long and tedoius, and probably not worth it at all on a smaller scale.

This is not the way for our Matai Island!!!
I believe that we would be better off with the limestone and farming for a living.
