The CIL of Arlit held its first meeting of 2011 on April 27 and 28.

These periodic meetings to which AREVA invites all its stakeholders, including local officials, civil society representatives and traditional leaders, provide an opportunity to discuss all the issues related to the mining activities and the economic development of the area.


Discussions during these sessions focused specifically on AREVA’s support for local development, occupational medicine at the mining sites, progress in the Imouraren project, and the future Health Watch for the Agadez region.


To help all the participants better understand the Group’s mining activities in the region, a guided tour of the mine operated by SOMAÏR, an AREVA subsidiary, was conducted on April 27.
