India scoops uranium contract.

“In return for the permit, Taurian Resources promised the Government of Niger that the company will green one million hectares of land”

Dung + grass = everything else for nomads. That includes fixing ground and air ( dust ) uranium.

Bacillus subtilis is a Gram-positive, catalase-positive bacterium commonly found in soil.[1] A member of the genus Bacillus, B. subtilis has the ability to form a tough, protective endospore, allowing the organism to tolerate extreme environmental conditions. Unlike several other well-known species, B. subtilis has historically been classified as an obligate aerobe, though recent research has demonstrated that this is not strictly correct.[2]
It has also been called Bacillus globigii, Hay bacillus or Grass bacillus.

These results suggest that the bacteria have a higher affinity for U than the kaolinite clay mineral under the experimental conditions tested, and that they can immobilize significant amounts of uranium.”

Kaolinite has a high affinity for U and Grass Bacillus affinity is even higher.

Soil bacteria require real ( dung ) fertilizers and soil; the fakes won’t do.
U mine contamination can be managed with biosolids and grass applied at the pit and in the surrounding areas.

Big Water and Grass – Africa

Fertile soil uses much, much less water to grow much, much more crop.
