PETER CAVE: In the town of Alice Springs a fierce debate has erupted over the prospect of a uranium mine about 25 kilometres to the south.

The Northern Territory Government has given the go ahead to a Cameco-Paladin joint venture to start uranium exploration at the deposit known as Angela.

Supporters of the project say it’s just what’s needed to boost the Alice Springs economy.

Opponents though, say that a uranium mine close to the town would pose huge health and environmental risks.
