PERTH, WESTERN AUSTRALIA--(Marketwired - February 10, 2015) - Paladin Energy Ltd (
As reported at the time, Paladin undertook sampling at the site of the storm-damaged tank and surface water upstream and downstream of where any possible incursion might have occurred. Malawi's Water Resources Department also sampled at these sites to get independent verification. Results of chemical analysis by Paladin's on-site laboratory showed that no contamination had occurred.
The Company also obtained confirmation through analysis of duplicate water samples undertaken by an accredited, global and independent laboratory services group. The independent results confirmed the results obtained by Paladin from its own laboratory and those collected by the Malawi authorities.
All results demonstrated that no measurable contamination had occurred as a consequence of the event. These results have been forwarded to Malawi's Environmental Affairs Department for their files.
