West Cumbria Mining Have Achieved What NIREX failed to do. Namely a massive ‘rock characterisation’ program with “exploratory boreholes”. It has not escaped people’s attention that the Chief Executive Officer of West Cumbria Mining was appointed to the government Committee of Radioactive Waste Management in November 2019. The CEO of West Cumbria Mining is tasked with delivery of a Geological Disposal Facility, this time to include high level nuclear wastes. The exploratory boreholes and the embedding of deep automated mining technology in West Cumbria are a very good start to facilitating that process. Copeland are the only Borough Council to have expressed a willingness to host a GDF – the Irish Sea and Egremont area are in the frame – Cumbria County Council may NEVER get another chance to vote NO to this Trojan Horse Coal Mine which is so very dangerous on so many different levels from climate to nuclear catastrophe.
