Index / Uranium (Nuclear Minerals) / Nuclear Power - Economics, Design, and Industry
Reuters reports that Australian investment bank Macquarie Group has bought Deutsche Bank uranium book, a source familiar with the matter said, as the increasingly commodities-focused lender pushes deeper into global energy trading. The deal includes Deutsche long-term trading contracts and stockpiles of low-grade uranium yellowcake, which were valued at the end of last year at around 200 million US dollars.

Industry experts say they comprise enough uranium to fuel around 10 average-sized nuclear power plants for 12-18 months. The source said the deal was completed late this summer, ... More →

Greg Klein reports that Canada may supply 20 per cent of the critical needs for REEs by 2018. That is the target set by the Canadian Rare Earth Elements Network, at the impetus of exploration companies among its membership. While CREEN chairperson Ian London concedes the plan might not be fulfilled so soon, he emphasizes that Canada has about a third of the non-Chinese world advanced rare earths projects, more than a third of the known critical rare earths resources and a greater degree of rare earths expertise than many people realize.

A Canadian REE powerhouse might be closer than... More →

Index / Uranium (Nuclear Minerals) / Nuclear Power - Economics, Design, and Industry
Dr. Conca reports that the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission -NRC- has essentially said that the proposed Yucca Mountain repository in Nevada would probably be OK for storing our high-level nuclear waste for a million years. This is a big win for Science, a big win for The Process, and a big win for the Rule of Law. Along with the recent NRC Waste Confidence ruling that long-term storage of spent nuclear fuel is safe for over a hundred years, this gives us two options for our waste. And there are more, better options out there as well. No one can say we do not know what to do with this waste ... More →

Ramsey Cox reports that Sens. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, and Tim Scott, R-S.C., said it is past time the Senate acts on the controversial Yucca Mountain nuclear waste site. Despite politically motivated delays to the Yucca Mountain project, it is clearer than ever that this is the safest, most viable location for storing our nuclear waste, Scott said Thursday. It is well beyond time to move forward and construct Yucca.

The senators made the remarks after the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, NRC, issued a report that found the dump site could safely store nuclear waste for 1 million yea... More →

Index / Uranium (Nuclear Minerals) / Nuclear Power - Economics, Design, and Industry
Peter Kelly-Detwiler reports that Lockheed Martin is thinking big. The company announced this week that it is on the fast track to developing small nuclear fusion reactors. The methodology is to harness fusion by containing the power of the sun in a small magnetic bottle. Head of the project, Tom McGuire, announced that his team - which has several patents - was going public in order to find potential government and industry partners to support this four-year-old effort to build a 100 megawatt - MW - reactor seven feet wide by ten feet long.

Fusion involves heating up a gas and sepa... More →

Index / Uranium (Nuclear Minerals) / Nuclear Power - Economics, Design, and Industry
Peter Kelly-Detwiler reports that observers watching the U.S. nuclear industry can tell you that the industry has struggled through a rough patch. The existing and aging nuclear fleet is also facing significant pressure, resulting largely from the economics of restructured competitive power markets, and the fact that they do not value low- or zero-carbon electricity sources. The emergence of relatively cheap shale gas-fired power plants has shown to be tough competition. As a consequence, the economic viability of some of the existing nuclear facilities has been claimed to be an issue. But eco... More →

Vivien Diniz reports that American defense and advanced technology company Lockheed Martin announced last week that it has taken a revolutionary step forward in the field of nuclear fusion. The breakthrough, the company claims, could solve the world energy crisis. To test its theory, Lockheed will be building and testing a compact fusion reactor in less than a year. Checking in at about 10 times smaller than current reactors, Lockheed hopes to develop and deploy new compact fusion reactors in as little as 10 years. Still in the experimental phase, nuclear fusion happens when two kinds of hydro... More →

Index / Uranium (Nuclear Minerals) / Other, including Thorium and Helium-3 / Rare Earth Elements
Joanne Hart reports that lithium is in big demand. While doctors prescribe it as a treatment for bipolar disorder, the metal is also a key constituent of long-lasting batteries, the need for which has grown exponentially. Used in items ranging from pacemakers to power tools, lithium batteries are also an essential part of electronic devices, such as computers, tablets and mobiles. They are integral to electric cars as well, and as more hit the market, demand for lithium is expected to soar.

Rare Earth Minerals is well placed to benefit from this trend. The company owns a third of a ... More →

Index / Oil (Tar) Sands / Related Environmental Issues
Erin Markham reports that in Alberta, Canada, the Athabasca River flows northwards into the Peace-Athabasca Delta and western Lake Athabasca, providing an ecologically important and sensitive habitat for millions of birds to nest and stage. In addition, Alberta is home to the 3rd largest known reserve of oil in the world. Primarily found in the Fort McMurray region, the oil sands have been harvested since 1967 and are known to produce around 1.6 million barrels of oil per day, providing more crude oil to the United States than any other country.

Index / Climate Change (Global Warming or Cooling)
Dr. Conca reports that we really need a more robust climate model that can capture the details we want to predict what will happen to us over the next hundred years. Our present models just are not up to the task. We need a Great Climate Model. The National Laboratories of the Department of Energy are working on just such a model. Teamed with the National Center for Atmospheric Research, four academic institutions and one private company to form the Accelerated Climate Modeling for Energy, or ACME project, the national labs will help develop the most complete, fully coupled, state-of-the-scien...
