Uranium was discovered in the Kintyre area in 1985 by CRA Exploration Pty Ltd, now Rio Tinto. Due to depressed uranium prices, they placed the project in care and maintenance mode in 1998. The deposit was initially within the Rudall River National Park, but the area enclosing the deposit was excised from the park in 1994 (funny that).The camp was dismantled and the site "rehabilitated" in 2002. The Kintyre property was acquired in 2008 by a joint venture between Cameco Corporation and Mitsubishi Development Pty Ltd. Now here comes the sinister part; “Cameco” - Canadian Mining and Energy Corporation. Due to the existing mine activity, there is no access to Turtle Pool.
