We’ve all heard the term depleted uranium. It is uranium with a lower content of the fissile isotope. Depleted uranium is an ingredient used for uranium bombs.

But what are uranium deposits? Those are mines for uranium. There are more than 16 countries in the world with uranium mines. Kazakhstan, Canada, and Australia are the top 3 producers of uranium. Just for info, Australia mined 6689 tons of uranium in 2015 as the third ranking producer. In Australia, uranium has been mined since 1954.

Uranium mining is the process of extraction of uranium ore from the ground. But how careful you need to be to mine uranium? That is what the documentary tries to explain and explore. The process is extremely dangerous, and workers need special equipment.
