Index / Uranium (Nuclear Minerals) / Exploration, Mining, Marketing, Acquisitions

Bob Gregory reports that the first uranium discovery in Wyoming was at the Silver Cliff Mine near Lusk. This mine was first developed in 1879 for silver and copper but failed to produce much ore. In 1918, prospectors discovered radium at Silver Cliff, which was the first reported uranium discovery in Wyoming. Radium, a radiogenic daughter product of uranium, was in demand for scientific research purposes, particularly by Marie Curie. Ore samples were shipped to Curie in France from Wyoming and Colorado. She named the ore mineral carnotite after the French Inspector General of Mines, Marie-Adol... More →

Index / Mining & Minerals - Evaluations

After preliminary exploration has been completed, the next step in the life cycle of a gold mine is resource definition. In resource definition, the exploration company has reason to believe that their property contains a mineral reserve. Therefore, the company will spend more money on intensive and technical exploration techniques.

The resource definition phase not only involves further analysis of the size and grade of the mineral reserve, but also uses engineering and geotechnical studies to evaluate the mining method and to estimate how much it will cost to extract the ore, give... More →

2015 uranium production: 14,200 tonnes

Cameco accounts for approximately 18 percent of global uranium production from its mines in Canada, the US and Kazakhstan. In the US, there is the Smith Ranch-Highland mine in Wyoming Powder River basin and the Crow Butte mine in Nebraska. In Canada, the company has 70% ownership of the world largest uranium mine, McArthur River, and a 50% stake in the world second-largest high-grade uranium deposit, Cigar Lake, in the Athabasca Basin.

Index / Uranium (Nuclear Minerals) / Nuclear Power - Economics, Design, and Industry

In general, commodities prices began to rally at the beginning of Q2 after hitting rock-bottom in Q1 (2016), raising the question of whether this represents a turnaround in the downward trend that began in Q3 2014 or just a temporary increase. Analysts agree that while commodities prices are unlikely to undershoot the lows registered at the beginning of 2016, the formation of bottoms could occur in the coming months. The Consensus view, however, is that the nascent recovery is here to stay, but its pace is expected to be slow and uneven across different commodities.

The story of ANSDIMAT started in the middle of 1990s in the Mining Institute of St-Petersburg (Russian State Technical University). Initially the software was developed to assist our research team of hydrogeologists with planning and interpretation of aquifer tests.

Between 1995 and 2005 ANSDIMAT changed its interface from DOS to Windows and was encouraged by an analytical modelling tool (AMWELLS).

Starting from 2005, we decided to share our tool with professionals outside of our University. Growing number of our users and their invaluable feedback encourages further ANSD... More →

WNN reports that Unit 4 of the Beloyarsk nuclear power plant started operating at 100% power for the first time today. The BN-800 fast neutron reactor is scheduled to enter commercial operation later this year.

The BN-800 reactor was brought to minimum controlled power for the first time in June 2014, at which time commercial operation was planned for the end of that year. However, in December 2014 Rosenergoatom announced that nuclear fuel for the unit would first be developed further. It was brought again to the minimum controlled power level in August 2015, and again in November 2... More →

Ikata 3 had been idle since being taken offline for a periodic inspection in April 2011. However, Shikoku began the process to restart Ikata 3 on 12 August and the reactor attained criticality the following day. The 846 MWe pressurized water reactor resumed power generation on 15 August and since then output from the unit has been gradually increased.

Ikata 3 became the fifth Japanese reactor to resume operation under new safety standards introduced following the March 2011 incident at the Fukushima Daiichi plant after the tsunami.

Paige Blankenbuehler asks the question ....Is the closure of the Diablo Canyon nuclear plant good or bad for the climate? At the end of June, 2016. nearly 100 environmentalists (often aka Nuclear Adversaries) marched through the streets of Oakland, California, stopping to picket an unlikely foe ... the Sierra Club. While most of their comrades waved signs outside the concrete building expansive front windows, a small group took the elevators upstairs to the main office and began chanting ...

Agar and Coulter (2007) report that the years between 1997 and 2007 saw significant advances in remote sensing technology for mineral exploration. The successful launch of the ASTER instrument in 1999 brought with it the ability to map mineral zoning and quartz occurrences within alteration systems. This took remote sensing from the age of the ambiguous TM anomaly into the age of mineral mapping from space. While ASTER has rapidly become the workhorse of geologic remote sensing, high spatial resolution satellite image and high spectral resolution airborne imaging have also advanced.
