Award of Excellence
Coal Mine in Min Kush. During the 60s and 70s, Min Kush was a prosperous city living from Uranium mining. As a symbol of the whole country, it is now a deserted very poor village of 2500 people (before 20 000) totally polluted by Uranium wastes. People drink the irradiated water, and eat irradiated food, live in houses made with irradiated concrete and survive by collecting irradiated coal.
