The DRUM program: Cataloging America’s abandoned uranium mines
Based on a review of U.S. Atomic Energy Commission (AEC) records and available data from numerous agencies, there are an estimated 4,225 mines across the country that provided uranium ore to the U.S. government for defense-related purposes between 1947 and 1970. To aid in the cleanup of these legacy uranium mines and establish a record of their locations and current conditions, the Defense-Related Uranium Mines (DRUM) program was established within the Department of Energy’s Office of Legacy Management (LM).

Adam Stein (Director, Energy Nuclear Innovation, The Breakthrough Institute)
The Breakthrough Institute
From innovations in advanced fission to breakthroughs in fusion, these are exciting times for nuclear technology. But the difficult part – engineering a significant commercial scale-up of advanced nuclear technology by the end of the decade -- still lies ahead. Can the advanced nuclear sector overcome the basket of technical, regulatory, financial challenges in time to make a meaningful contribution to climate change before it is too late? Will fission and fusion energy systems be teammates or competitors in the energy landscape of tomorrow?
Join a panel of leading industry experts as they explore these and other questions about the fundamental future of nuclear technologies.
