Abstract

Uranium is vital to nuclear power generation. Its hazard is a formidable threat to life forms. A small portion of a regional land mass - not known for uranium mining was analyzed to examine the risk of future environmental pollution when the proposed nuclear plant is cited in the country. The bye product of the spot deposition of uranium over the environs of Ewekoro was theoretically examined. Though the radioactive pollution within the region is normal compared to other regions of Nigeria, constructing a nuclear power plant without acknowledging the radioactive data could be suicidal for the life forms in any part of the country.
