A State Government-appointed committee assessing the best practise approach for uranium mining in Queensland says it may develop recommendations that differ from other states.
Members of the Uranium Mining Implementation Committee have spoken to local authorities, mining companies and stakeholders in the Mount Isa and Gulf regions about the restart of mining.
Committee chairman Peter Bell says they are due to report back to Government next month.
He says they are aiming to ensure the environment, community and workers are safe during future uranium mining.
"Then we're going ...
to have another [period] of full days working through our report, our recommendations and making sure we've got that right and being able to present a document that is what I think the community would want, and certainly one that will give the Government good direction in regards to the announcement and conditioning," he said.
"It's been really about us getting a collective wisdom about the people in the Mount Isa, Gulf region to really give us some confidence in what our thinking is so far and then to help us to really develop the recommendations that we would put to Government.
"Those recommendations will now be developed over the next three weeks."
