Index / Uranium (Nuclear Minerals) / Exploration
Although there are between 12 and 15 different typestyles of uranium deposits, almost all economic uranium deposits come from just two types -

unconformity-related deposits, and

sandstone uranium deposits.

Unconformity-related deposits account for around on third of the uranium production, while sandstone uranium deposits account for another third. The remaining third of production comes from a variety of the remaining 10 or so deposit types.

The most common uranium mineral is uraninite or pitchblende. There are a range of other uranium minerals incl... More →

Index / Uranium (Nuclear Minerals) / Recovery / Mining Technology
Uranium was discovered by Martin Klaproth in 1789. He named this new found discovery after Uranus, in honor of the discovery in 1781. Uranium primary use dates back to 79 CE where it was used to add the color yellow to ceramic glazes. During the Middle Ages, pitchblende (uranium oxide) was mined from the Habsburg silver mines in the Czech Republic and was used to color glass. Uranium glassware, also called Vaseline glass, was commercially manufactured starting in the mid-19th century and was very popular through the 1920s. Quality Victorian era and pre-war uranium glass pieces are highly colle... More →

Index / Mining & Minerals / Off-World Exploration and Mining
Christopher Rawluk reports that at first glance off-world mining sounds ridiculous. Why would anyone consider mining in space when even the largest Earth-based mining operations seem to have trouble managing costs. After all, mid-grade and marginal deposits seem to have trouble finding any money and the process of moving a project from prospect to mine can take decades and cost hundreds of million of dollars. He was the first to admit that the whole idea of asteroid mining was initially right up there with Star Trek-style transporters and desktop cold fusion, but a few recent events have pique... More →

Index / Mining & Minerals / Rare Earth Exploration and Mining
Randy Scott says that the processing, particularly the separation side of things, is very competitive. He has been spending a lot of time and a lot of money trying to look at adding value to their concentrates, which he thinks he has done nicely with the pure concentrate they are producing, but because of that they wanted to look at going up the value chain and further separating the products. They have test work underway now for a couple of three months to try to evaluate how their concentrates would perform if they were to develop technology to further separate them.

Africa is the second-largest and second-most-populous continent. Its population is the youngest among all the continents. 50 per cent of Africans are 19 years old or younger.

Today Africa is most often thought of as a continent in turmoil. This is true, especially with the diseases and political turmoil that has infected some of our nation states. However, the people of Africa are also very capable and starting to recover with 7 of the 10 fastest growing economies in the world last year. Africa is also a continent renowned for the resilience, industry and ingenuity of its people. More →

The idea of harvesting a clean and efficient form of energy from the Moon has stimulated science fiction and fact in recent decades. Unlike Earth, which is protected by its magnetic field, the Moon has been bombarded with large quantities of Helium-3 by the solar wind for billions of years. It is thought that this isotope could provide safer nuclear energy in a fusion reactor, since it is not radioactive and would not produce dangerous waste products.

Apollo geologist, Harrison Schmidt, has repeatedly made the argument for Helium-3 mining, while Gerald Kulcinski at the University of... More →

Index / Uranium (Nuclear Minerals) / Nuclear Power - Economics, Design, and Industry
Hannah Northey reported that Democratic Sen. Patty Murray of Washington is calling for the completion of a stalled review of the abandoned Yucca Mountain, Nev., nuclear waste project in what some industry sources say shows the waning power of the fiercest foe of the project, outgoing Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid - D-Nev.

With the largest nuclear waste site, Hanford, in her home state, Murray yesterday sent a letter to Nuclear Regulatory Commission Chairwoman Allison Macfarlane praising the NRC for resuming its safety review of Yucca, a project the White House has deemed unworka... More →

Julia Whitty reports that the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has some fresh news from World War II. 13 Merchant Marine ships sunk by the German Navy in the Battle of the Atlantic threaten to release oil from their watery graves.

The finding comes in an assessment presented to the Coast Guard that analyzed 20,000 shipwrecks in US waters, and identified 36 as posing a significant threat of oil pollution. Seventeen of those are recommended for further assessment, which could lead to missions to remove their fuel oil and oil cargo. Besides the Merchant Marine vessels, t... More →

Index / Uranium (Nuclear Minerals) / Nuclear Power - Economics, Design, and Industry
Steve Kidd concludes that the fear that surrounds the word nuclear has to be removed. And the source of the fear is undoubtedly deep concerns about the impact of heightened levels of radiation. The big positive of nuclear is producing a huge amount of energy with a small quantity of material. The big negative is fear of radiation. The huge quantities of water at Fukushima containing very low levels of radiation have become a big issue because of this, while 100,000 people are still evacuated from their homes for the same reason.

The obvious conclusion is that until there is a proper... More →
