                Radioactive waste from Australian mining company raises concerns in Malaysia

                SYDNEY - One of the world's largest rare earth producers Lynas has confirmed on Thursday that the Malaysian government has renewed its operating licence, but the decision has created deep divisions within Malaysia.

                With a mine site in Mount Weld, the Western Australian company ships ore to its facility in Malaysia for processing. However a by-product of this enrichment process is "low-level radioactive waste."

                "I don't understand why Lynas, an Australian company, does this to Malaysia," chemical engineer Moses Lim told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation at a recent protest in Kuantan where hundreds gathered to oppose the licence extension.

                "(The radioactivity) will be passed through our children and our children's children. We may be gone, but our grandchildren will curse us," he said.

                Rare earth is a vital component in everything from aerospace technologies, advanced military applications, batteries, metal alloys, magnets, lighting, solar grids, telecommunications and smartphone devices.

                With the issue becoming increasingly toxic among many Malaysians, Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad attempted to reassure locals about the risks associated with the waste product.

                "It's not Chernobyl. This isn't going to be dangerous," he said recently.

                As part of the new extension deal, Lynas will now have six months to permanently dispose of around 580,000 tons of radio-active waste which is currently being stockpiled in its Kuantan plant.

                But a suitable location in Malaysia is yet to be determined.
