Responsible uranium extraction in Niger

AREVA produces 3,000 tons of uranium every year on the Arlit site through the companies COMINAK and SOMAÏR. A look at a desert town where economic activity, revolving round the mines, is accompanied by a concern for the education and health of the population, and environmental protection.

Mining activities

With operational excellence as their aim, the multicultural teams of the Mining Business Group locate new resources and exploit deposits all over the world, extract uranium from the ore, and reclaim and monitor the sites when mining has ended. This broad spectrum of know-how makes the mining activity a pillar of AREVA’s integrated business model.
