The last remnants of Saddam Hussein’s nuclear program is set to arrive in Port Hope’s uranium refinery facilities very soon. More than 500 tonnes of yellowcake uranium were sold to Cameco Corporation by the Iraqui government in a deal that was reported to cost tens of millions of dollars. Cameco’s Port Hope conversion facility employs approximately 500 people and is the only facility of its kind in Canada.

Last July, the Canadian Nuclear Safety Board shut down one of Cameco’s Port Hope refineries after they reported that arsenic and fluorides had leaked into the groundwater.
