Should Queensland ban uranium exploration?

Australian uranium is now known to be the source of radioactivity contaminating large swathes of Japan in the wake of Fukushima.  Uranium mining is still banned in Queensland (under a Labor government).  However, uranium exploration is still going on.  Our government continues to profit from mining permits and allow mining companies to locate alleged uranium sources, despite a ban on mining it.  Should this continue?
