Once again, the Institute for Geology of the TU Bergakademie Freiberg is pleased to invite you to the next international conference “UMH VII” taking place in Freiberg on September 2014. The UMH VII conference will be used as basis of an international forum for discussing uranium related problems in conjunction with protecting and preserving our environment. This conference builds on the very successful past conferences (UMH I to UMH VI) from 1995 until 2011. For 2014 the following sessions are scheduled:  

Session I: Uranium mining

-         In-situ leaching -         Heap leaching -         Radiation protection -         Environmental issues -         Life cycle concepts -         International safety standards -         Risk assessment studies -         Education, training, and public relations

Session II: Uranium and phosphates

-         New methods of uranium recovery -         Phosphor gypsum -         Case studies

Session III: Clean up technologies for water and soil

-         Mine closure: concepts, clean-up and reality  -         Phytoremediation/stabilization -         Microbiological technologies

 Session IV: Uranium and daughter nuclides

-         Species analytics -         Isotope aspects -         Sensors and assays -         Radon indoor -         Uranium and Radium in drinking water including water treatment

Session V: Basic research and modeling

-         Thermodynamics and kinetics  -         Reactive transport modeling  -         Fate of uranium delivered by phosphate fertilizers

Practitioners, consultants, regulators, policymakers, researchers, scientists, engineers, and students will have numerous opportunities to learn about innovative and emerging scientific advances and technologies that are needed to address a wide range of uranium mining and mine closure associated with environmental issues such as soil and groundwater protection, mine water treatment technologies and management, environmental impacts of phosphate mining associated with fertilizer production and technologies for uranium separation. Key sessions will include mining technologies, reclamation and remediation, regulatory issues, monitoring measures, modeling techniques, biogeochemistry of uranium, and risk assessment studies.
