QLD | What is unexploded ordnance?
Unexploded ordnance (UXO) is ammunition such as artillery shells, mortar bombs and grenades that did not explode when used. In Queensland, most UXO is found on former military training areas and firing ranges. UXO may detonate if disturbed, causing a potential safety risk. Land affected by UXO requires specialized assessment and management procedures.
