In the coming months, I suspect we will be hearing more candidate nominations for Canada's Tentative List. Some might have a real chance, this seems like one of those with real potential.

I had a scout and couldn't see if this was mentioned before but I just stumbled across this article (in Spanish) from 2011, which finishes by recommending Semipalatinsk Test Site (aka The Polygon) in Kazakhstan investigate becoming a WHS.

Personally I find nuclear history fascinating so I would certainly be sympathetic to it gaining inscription, perhaps alongside Bikini Atoll.
