Geocache Description:


Under åren 1960-1965 bröts totalt 1,5 miljoner ton alunskiffer ur dagbrottet i Ranstad. Totalt utvanns 215 ton uran vilket användes i det svenska kärnkraftsprogrammet. När lönsamheten sjönk avslutades brytningen trotts att uranfyndigheten är Europas största. Brytningskoncessionen upphörde att gälla 1984 och då började arbetet med att ta fram en efterbehandlingsplan för området.

Större delen av återställningsarbetet genomfördes under 1990-1992. Dagbrottet tätades med morän och fylldes av upprinnande grundvatten till en sjö som idag kallas Tranebärssjön. Kostnaderna för efterbehandlingen i Ranstad beräknas ha uppgått till ca 150 miljoner kronor, och har bekostats med en avgifter på kärnkraftsproducerad el.

During 1960-1965 was 215 tons of uranium extracted here. The uranium was used in the Swedish nuclear program. Even who the mining finds is the biggest in Europe, was the profits to low and the extraction stopped completely year 1984. The restorations work, which took place during 1990-1992, ended up with a nice little lake called Tranebärssjön.
