'No plans' for uranium mining and nuclear energy

WATER and Energy Minister Mark McArdle has categorically ruled out nuclear energy options in Queensland during an estimates committee hearing.

He said there were "no plans at all" during questioning from the Opposition about uranium mining and nuclear energy.

The LNP lifted a 30-year ban on uranium mining last year and has been undertaking research into best practice for resuming mining in some parts of the state for export.
