The Protactinium Mining Town is a mining operation situated in East Bushington. Protactinium (formerly protoactinium) is a chemical element with the symbol Pa and atomic number 91. It is a dense, silvery-gray actinide metal that readily reacts with oxygen, water vapor, and inorganic acids. Concentrations of protactinium in the Earth's crust are typically a few parts per trillion but may reach up to a few parts per million in some uraninite ore deposits. Because of its scarcity, high radioactivity, and high toxicity, there are currently no uses for protactinium. However, this isn't stopping the consortiums from running this operation. They figure if no one else is doing it, it's worth doing. This might sound like backward thinking, and it is, but it's not our money being spent here. So do we truly care that they're doing this?
