The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission released a joint report with Environment Canada entitled "Risk Management of Uranium Releases From Uranium Mines and Mills" on September 30, 2009. The Report covers activities completed as of the end of 2007, and concludes that EC and the CNSC, along with industry, have successfully met uranium risk-management objectives. In particular, the Report concludes that activities implemented at the Rabbit Lake Uranium Mine and Mill and the Key Lake Operation were successful in reducing the discharge of uranium into the environment. A 67% reduction in uranium concentration in Island Lake at the Cluff Lake Operation was also recorded.
