Between 1952 and 1963 several hundred nuclear tests were carried out in Australia. There were a total of
twelve major nuclear explosions under five separate “operations” – Hurricane, Totem, Mosaic, Buffalo and
Antler. The Maralinga site was used for 11 years for major explosions and 600 minor trials
Many of the minor trials took place at Maralinga between November 1958 and September 1961 by which
time a moratorium on nuclear tests had been agreed.31 The minor trials were codenamed: Kittens, Tims,
Rats and Vixen. The purpose of the first three tests was to examine component parts of nuclear weapons
