MetaControlRisk BACKGROUND

Some European previous projects references are already published at

As far as we know, indicative topics for future calls of the European Comission are:

Quantification of risks associated with low and protracted exposure
Medical exposures and natural sources of radiation
Protection of the environment and radioecology
Risk and emergency management
Protection of the workplace

In our honest opinion, Uranium is dangerous even in the ground near natural deposits with no mines or any human activity. Cancer is not the only risk of Uranium and Radon gas must be detected in any place. New radioprotection techniques must be developed, and we shall do our best for it.

We are already working for Uranium victims as explained in Spanish at
Moreover, several municipal governments are concerned with radiation and radon gas risks for cancer epidemiology and Spanish authorities are publishing some statistical data. Please read  

Published information about CANCER research and Uranium in Spain:

Lopez-Abente G, Aragones N, Pollan M, Ruiz M, Gandarillas A - "Leukemia, lymphomas, and myeloma mortality in the vicinity of nuclear power plants and nuclear fuel facilities in Spain" Cancer Epidemiol Biomarkers Prev 8(10):925-34 (1999)
(Excess risk of leukemia mortality was observed in the vicinity of the uranium-processing facilities in Andujar and Ciudad Rodrigo)

Cancer Epidemiology Unit of the National Center for Epidemiology, Carlos III Institute of Health, Madrid, Spain.

Mortality due to hematological tumors in towns near Spain's seven nuclear power plants and five nuclear fuel facilities during the period 1975-1993 was ascertained. The study was based on 610 leukemia-, 198 lymphoma-, and 122 myeloma-induced deaths in 489 towns situated within a 30-km radius of such installations. As control areas, we used 477 towns lying within a 50- to 100-km radius of each installation, matched by population size and a series of sociodemographic characteristics (income level, proportion of active population engaged in farming, proportion of unemployed, percentage of illiteracy, and province). Relative risk (RR) for each area and the trends in risk with increasing proximity to an installation were analyzed using log-linear models. None of the nuclear power plants registered an excess risk of leukemia-induced mortality in any of the surrounding areas. Excess risk of leukemia mortality was, however, observed in the vicinity of the uranium-processing facilities in Andujar [RR, 1.30; 95% confidence interval, 1.03-1.64] and Ciudad Rodrigo (RR, 1.68; 95% confidence interval, 0.92-3.08). Excess risk of multiplemyeloma mortality was found in the area surrounding the Zorita nuclear power plant. Statistical testing revealed that, with the single exception of multiple myeloma, none of the tumors studied showed evidence of a rise in risk with proximity to an installation. No study area yielded evidence of a raised risk of leukemia mortality among persons under the age of 25 years. More specific studies are called for in areas near installations that have been fully operational for longer periods. In this connection, stress should be laid on the importance of using dosimetric information in all future studies.

Regional spanish government acknowledges link between radioactivity and deaths and illnesses at U-factory. The regional environmental councillor of Andalucia, Manual Pezzi, has ordered health investigations into the cases of 35 former employees at the now closed uranium factory at Andujar. The investigations are necessary for them to receive pensions for 'professional illness'. Pezzi ordered similar measures to be taken for the relatives of 35 other men who died allegedly as a result of working at the factory. The Andujar factory was closed in 1981, and former employees have been fighting ever since for health compensation. When the factory was in operation, not only were its workers un-aware of the dangers of working there, but they -- and in some cases, their widows -- signed documents in which they acknowledged that any death or illness (usually silicosis or lung cancer) that they suffered was not caused by conditions at the factory. Pezzi also announced that periodic random checks would be carried out on water and foodstuffs in the surrounding area as a precautionary measure. Power in Europe, 4 Nov. 1994, p.15.

Portugal : The state enterprise ENU (Empresa Nacional de Urânio ) operates a uranium mill at Urgeiriça in the Beiras district, which is supplied with uranium from various mines in the surroundings. More Uranium in Portugal at Guarda, Sabugal, Gouveia, Pinhel, Trancoso, Fornos de Algodres, Seia, Almeida, Aguiar da Beira, Urgeiriça, em Canas de Senhorim  (Viseu), concelhos de Nelas, Trancoso, Vouzela, Viseu, Celorico da Beira, Seia e Sátão . For information about organisations, experts and news in Portugal, please visit

Czech Republic : Czech side of the Ore Mountains at Jáchymov and surroundings; deposits were discovered and mined in various areas of Bohemia and Moravia, the state enterprise CSUP s.p. (Ceskoslovensky Uranovy Prumysl s.p.)., which changed its name to DIAMO s.p. in 1992. The largest uranium province is Príbram followed by West Bohemian site of Zadní Chodov and at the South Bohemian site Okrouhlá Radoun and the North Bohemian Hamr na Jezere mine with the Stráz pod Ralskem mill  At the South Bohemian site of Mydlovary near Budweis. As far as we know, Uranium mining is still in operation at a reduced production rate at the West Moravian Rozná mine with the associated Dolní Rozínka mill. Right now we are trying to contact local authorities and experts at Hamr, Rožná, Stráž, Brzkov, Břevniště,  Jasenice-Pucov and Osečná-Kotel .

Poland:  Sudety Mountains near the Czech border (in the Jelenia Góra and Walbrzych districts) and an uranium mill that was in operation at Kowáry. The European Commission has published an invitation to tender for a contract to cover the planning, supervision and execution of design and construction work as part of the overall project for remediation of the low-level radioactive waste, uranium mine tailing pond in Kowary, Poland. The specific tasks include design and construction of pond cover and drainage systems, and site reclamation work. The contract will run for 18 months, as published by the "Official Journal of the European Communities".

Germany: Mining of uranium in the historic mining provinces in the Ore Mountains. "Wismut" is the short name of the mining company in East Germany and SAG stands for Sowjetische Aktiengesellschaft and later the complete name was "SDAG Wismut", where SDAG stands for Sowjetisch-Deutsche Aktiengesellschaft, now "Wismut GmbH", where GmbH stands for Ltd. But during all these years, the company was usually referred to as simply "Wismut". Wismut's uranium mining focused on the locations Johanngeorgenstadt/Aue/Schlema in the Saxonian part of the Ore Mountains, later also on Ronneburg in Eastern Thuringia, and Freital/Dresden-Gittersee and Königstein near Dresden. In addition to these major sites, there exist many other places where uranium was explored or temporarily mined. The largest open pit called "Lichtenberg" is located near Ronneburg. Its initial depth was 240 meters; after being partly refilled, the depth was still 160 meters at an open volume of 80 million m3 in 1990. After depletion of the ore deposits located near the surface, mining continued at this place to depths of 500 meters. In the Ore Mountains, depths of 2000 meters were even reached; due to the high temperatures at these depths, the mines had to be air conditioned at high cost. There are two large uranium mills including chemical treatment in Crossen near Zwickau and Seelingstädt near Gera/Ronneburg. In addition, two smaller mills were in operation in Freital and Dresden-Gittersee until 1962. A special case is the Königstein mine. In the western part of Germany, several uranium deposits were discovered and explored in the highlands, but no commercial uranium mining developed there. Test mines existed in Ellweiler (Rhineland-Palatinate), Baden-Baden/Gernsbach in the northern part of the Black Forest, Menzenschwand in the southern part of the Black Forest, Mähring and Poppenreuth in Northern Bavaria, and Großschloppen in the Fichtel Gebirge. The only uranium mill was in operation from 1961 to 1989 at Ellweiler. It has produced a total of around 700 tonnes of uranium, mainly from Menzenschwand ores. In Mähring, heap leaching was continued for some period of time after the shut down of the test mine.

Hungary: As far as we know, there exists only one uranium ore deposit in Hungary. It is located in the south of the country at the foot of the Mecsek Mountains at the Western border of the city of Pécs. From 1956 to 31 March 1992, mining was performed by the state owned Mecseki Ércbányászati Vállalat (MEV), and since then by Mecsekurán LLC.

Slovakia: Some uranium mining was undertaken in the areas of Novoveská Huta - Murán - Hnilcík and Kalnica - Selec in the West Carpathians.

Rumania: Soviet-Rumanian enterprise SOVROM-CUARTT at Baita-Bihor in the West Carpathian Mountains. Uranium mining resumed in 1978 with the start of the uranium mill at Feldioara near Brasov. All ore produced in the uranium mining provinces of the West-Carpathians, East-Carpathians, and the Banat Mountains was brought to this mill. At present, the mines of Avram Iancu (West Carpathians), Dobrei South (Banat Mountains), Botusana and Crucea (East Carpathians) are still operating. The uranium produced is intended to supply the Cernavoda nuclear power plant. 

Bulgaria: Uranium mining began in Bulgaria in 1946 at Bukhovo near Sofia by the Bulgarian firm Redki Metali (Rare Metals) for the uranium mills at Bukhovo and Eleshnitza and for Kozloduj nuclear power plant 

Ukraine: At present, uranium is being mined in the Ingul'skii and Vatutinskii mines near Kirovograd. The ore is processed in the Zholtiye Vody and Dneprodzerzhinsk mills.

Russia: At present, uranium is only being mined in Russia at the Streltsovsk deposit in the eastern Transbaikal district in Eastern Siberia. In the European part of Russia, a small uranium deposit in the Onezsk district in Karelia is known. The deposits in the Stavropol district and in the Northern Caucasus Mountains seem to be exhausted, but must be seriously controlled.

C.I.T.A. is inviting to some victims, special organisations, lawyers, technical journalists and very qualified experts on Public Heald and Environmental care to become members for free (Art. 6 amounts of money must be negotiated but we can invite members with no fee at all). Other memberships must be negotiated considering each "Expression of Interest", "Non-disclosure-agreements" and "Special Memorandum-Of-Understanding" to be officially included here). Any member non-European must have an European legal representative accepted by C.I.T.A.

There are some results already in Europe on Epidemiological studies about "Exposure of workers and the general public to natural sources of radiation ":

Lung cancer risk associated with radon exposures is being analysed in epidemiological studies of uranium miners and populations exposed to elevated levels of radon in their homes. Inhalation of radon and its radioactive progeny leads to exposures of lung tissues by a radiation.

a) Uranium miners Lung cancer has long been recognised as an occupational risk for both uranium and other miners exposed to elevated levels of radon underground. Various estimates have been made of the risks from epidemiological studies of different occupational groups, generally among those who were more exposed. To provide improved estimates at lower levels of cumulative exposure, support is being given to a pooled study of French, Czech and German uranium miners. Average exposures in a low dose sub-cohort were about 30 WLM delivered on average over a period of 10 years; a statistically significant excess relative risk of the lung cancer mortality of about 0.4 (ie, an increase by about 40% above the natural incidence) was found. The German cohort is currently being extended to 60,000 uranium miners and controls which will double the number of miners on whom data were formerly available for the radon risk estimation. After pooling with the other data, this data base will enable better quantification of the risk of lung cancer due to radon and its dependence on dose, dose rate, age at exposure and age attained. Only limited information, however, is available on smoking, which is the main risk factor for lung cancer. Case-control studies, nested within the pooled miner cohort, will provide improved differentiation of the risk of lung cancer from smoking and exposures to radon and its progeny and to uranium dust.

b) Exposure to radon in the home Exposure to radon in the home is, in general, much lower than that experienced by uranium miners. Case-control studies of lung cancer incidence have been performed in various radon prone areas of the European Union with Community support. The power of these individual studies is, in general, not sufficient to establish a statistically significant risk for radon concentrations of the order of or less than 100 Bq m-3 - a level that is exceeded in several percent of homes in the European Union. To increase the statistical power, data are being pooled from nine European countries and North America. Results from this pooled study were expected in 2003 and should provide improved estimates of risk at lower radon concentrations and, more particularly, risks that are more directly relevant for the conditions of exposure in the home (which differ somewhat from those in mines). Account is being taken of factors such as smoking habits, sex, age, and sources of variation in radon levels (eg, seasonal variation etc.) in analysing the data.

Achievements: The French and the Czech data sets were continuously improved and updated. The French data set now comprises 1785 miners followed up to 1985, a larger data set with about 6000 miners is in preparation. This data set has low dose rates in average. The Czech cohort S has 4320 miners with 708 cases, followed up to 1990. The newer cohorts L and N have 72 cases in the data set. The data sets are also included in an analysis of pooled data of 11 studies.
Both the French and the Czech data set show an increased rate of lung cancer in the Uranium miners. In the Czech cohort S, the relative risk is about 5; it is increased particularly in the period 4-14 years after exposure (ICRF). Also strongly increased in this cohort, but presumably not linked to Radon exposure are homicide and mental disorder.

Please send an EXPRESSION OF INTEREST (EOI) on this:

The members hereby agree to form a EEIG under Council Regulation (EEC) 2137/85 according to the present agreement, the Grouping’s own terms and the law of the State of the Grouping’s address (Madrid, Spain).

Art. 1 – Denomination and Power

    2. All correspondence, acts and documents of the MCR Grouping must abide to provisions according to Art. 25 of the Regulation.
    3. The MCR Grouping is empowered, as of the date of incorporation, to negotiate contracts, perform legal acts, be entitled to deeds and obligations of whatever nature, within the project and to stand in court according to art. 1.2 of the Regulation.
Art. 2 – MCR Object (still to be detailed by internal member discussion)

Specifically, asking for the financial and technical support of the Partners and the European Commission, the Grouping is formed with the purpose to set up a Thematic Network Project in order to support research and engineering activities against risks. Uranium minerals in any European countries must be considered as a danger wherever can be naturally found, and any mining or industrial activity, deposits or radiations must be controlled, and we expect to contribute to the best control of the official controls (metacontrol) concerning Uranium, Radon and their daughters as well as any other dangerous minerals, chemicals or bioactive material of interest for any MCR member. Instruments, calibration, metrology, analysis and official data files must be avalaible for any affected members developing better biostatistics, for environmental and health care improvement. MCR EEIG must consider European Union indicative topics for future calls

Quantification of risks associated with low and protracted exposure
Medical exposures and natural sources of radiation
Protection of the environment and radioecology
Risk and emergency management
Protection of the workplace

Forensic Retrospective Dosimetry Technologies will be on our R&D objectives. Cancer, and other Uranium hazards as well as Inhalation of any Chemical toxicity, Oral Ingestion or Eco-Toxicity are well known risks undercontrolled in many places, and we would like to improve any control of the official controls. Any litigation or legal expert witnessing about dosimetry and retrospective dosimetry is of high interest for this EEIG.

In our honest opinion, Uranium is dangerous even in the ground near natural deposits with no mines or any human activity. Cancer is not the only risk of Uranium and Radon gas must be detected in any place. New radioprotection techniques must be developed, and we shall do our best for it.

The MCR Grouping shall operate in any European Union Country as well as, if needed, outside the European Union. considers Latin America countries as a priority.

Our technical R&D background is about:

·    Radioactive elements of natural and technogenic origin, problems of eternal and global radionuclides;
·    Use of the radioactive elements as indicators of natural or technogenic processes and for mineral deposits forecast;
·    Mineral resources for development of the nuclear power engineering; problems and perspectives;
·    Techniques and methods for determination of the radioactive elements and radio-ecological parameters (evaluation of the accumulation levels, dosimetric loads including biodosimetry and retrospective dosimetry);
·    Radio-ecological problems at the mining and processing enterprises of the nuclear-fuel cycle;
·    Problems of  the radio-ecological monitoring;
·    Radioactive wastes and problems of the safe storage, processing and utilization of these wastes;
·    Uranium deposits as a natural analogue of the ONF
·    Risk assessment;
·    Social and ecological, economic and legal aspects of the nuclear power engineering development;
·    Society and radiation, acknowledgement and anxiety.
