Matt Canavan announces nuclear waste dump location in South Australia via The Guardian

Farm on Eyre Peninsula volunteered by owner to house low and medium risk waste


On Saturday the federal resources minister, Matt Canavan, said 160 hectares of the Napandee property in Kimba would host Australia’s radioactive waste, the vast majority of which comes from the production of nuclear medicine and is held across more than 100 sites.


The site near the town of Kimba will store low-level waste permanently and intermediate-level waste temporarily.

It will employ about 45 people and the government will give the community a $31 million package.

A property at Lyndhurst, also near Kimba, had been in the running but Canavan said the Napandee proposal had more support.


The dump is opposed by environmental and Indigenous groups – but a recent poll conducted around Kimba returned a 62% vote in favour of the facility.

Jeff Baldock, who owns the Napandee site, said the project was an opportunity for the area to secure its future.

“It’s very rare that a small country community gets the chance to guarantee that it’s still going to be here in 300 years time,” he said.

“We’re always looking for ways to attract new industry and try and boost our local community.

“This is one of those projects that is not only supplying us with jobs but with an opportunity to attract new industry.”
