Mining facilities in Niger
Present in Niger for
50 years, AREVA has constructed an enduring partnership with the country. Four companies are currently exploiting Niger’s uranium resources. The group is the operator of these companies and their principal shareholder.
AREVA and Niger, a enduring partnership
AREVA has always been a loyal industrial partner and socially responsible operator in Niger. The group conducts its mining activities with an active policy of risk prevention, impact limitation and environmental protection. AREVA fulfills its corporate citizenship responsibilities by reporting on its activities, encouraging dialogue and cooperation with stakeholders, and helping to improve the lives of the local population.
