10 NEWS THURSDAY MAY 22 2014 NTNE01Z01MA - V1 Push for Giles nuclear stance strate that the Territory can safely manage a uranium mine, with processing at Ranger suspended following a serious accident last year. Australia holds about 40 per cent of the worlds uranium deposits but only exports yellowcake, so if it enriched the commodity, it could offer a complete package. This is a case where in doing good for the rest of the world, we can do enormously well for the Australian economy, Mr Hawke said. A community rally in Tennant Creek is planned for this Sunday, marking seven years since the Muckaty site was nominated by the Northern Land Council. The Federal Court trial begins on June 2 with hearings in Melbourne, Tennant Creek and Darwin. Mr Giles declined requests for comment. Aboriginal leaders had also been spoken to, Mr Hawke said, and they saw merit in the proposal as it would bring in huge incomes and advance their communities. Nuclear Free NT campaigner Lauren Mellor said: The Chief Minister should be fighting Canberras plan to make the Territory Australias waste dump, not secretly promoting the Territory as the worlds nuclear dump. Dr Jim Green from Friends of the Earth said: The plan to impose a national nuclear waste dump on the Territory is a national disgrace. The Chief Minister cannot even demon ENVIRONMENT groups have urged Chief Minister Adam Giles to publicly state his position on nuclear waste after former prime minister Bob Hawke claimed he was an ardent supporter. Mr Hawke said that nuclear power was an integral element in tackling climate change, but had been vexed by the issue of safe disposal. Based on a 25-year-old report made to him by Ralph Slayter who he appointed Australias first chief scientist in 1989 Mr Hawke said the best sites were in the NT and Western Australia. The Federal Government has a plan to dump nuclear waste at Muckaty Station, north of Tennant Creek. Mr Hawke also said that he had discussed the issue with Mr Giles who was an ardent supporter.
