Cameco and the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission say there is no risk to the public or the environment after a truck carrying uranium powder rolled near Swift Current, Saskatchewan. Cameco spokesman Rob Gereghty says it's not clear if any of the yellowcake spilled and, if it did, whether the product was confined to the shipping container. Gereghty (GEHR'-eh-tee) describes the uranium powder as having the consistency of dense sand and he says it would be easy to clean up. (The uranium was produced by a company in Australia and was en route to Cameco's refinery in Blind River, Ontario.)
