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

The government of Western Australia just granted environmental approval to Cameco Australia proposed Yeelirrie uranium project, subject to conditions that include measures to mitigate risks to underground fauna. The approval came following an environmental assessment process, public consultation, and agreement between Western Australia, Aboriginal affairs and state development. It was issued as a 25-page ministerial statement by the Western Australia Environmental Protection Authority (EPA).

EPA had recommended in August 2016 that the project should not be allowed to proceed because... More →

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

Clean Commodities Corporation has acquired the Labrador Uranium Project, an advanced, drill-ready uranium exploration project located in the Notakwanon area of Labrador. The project hosts such a significant number of uranium showings, including the Notak-1 target which is a drill-ready prospect based on past work by Altius Minerals. The announcement positions an advanced wholly-owned uranium asset within their portfolio and compliments the $8M transaction they recently disclosed as their Preston Uranium Project in Saskatchewan.

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

Dr. Conca reports that while everyone has been fixated on Perry shifting DOE away from renewable energy and toward the fossil fuels that he championed during his fourteen years as Governor of Texas, Perry has been busy coming up to speed during the Transition. He now appears to appreciate the DOE role in science, nuclear and global affairs.

This is a good thing, since most of the DOE $30 billion budget goes to maintaining and refurbishing the U.S. nuclear stockpile, impeding global nuclear proliferation, cleaning up nuclear waste, rebuilding our aging nuclear infrastructure, and ove... More →

Index / Climate Change, Anthropocene & Associated Issues

Vanessa Schipani reports that during his confirmation hearing for secretary of state, Rex Tillerson said that our ability to predict the effect of increased greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere is very limited. That is not entirely accurate.

While very limited is subjective, scientists have differing degrees of confidence when attributing different phenomena to increased atmospheric carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases. For example, scientists are nearly certain that increased CO2 levels from the burning of fossil fuels have caused over half of the global temperature... More →

June Javelosa reports that almost three years ago, China declared their intentions to wage a war against pollution, a move in direct response to the dire state of the air quality and worldwide efforts to address climate change. Even now, as China announces plans to shut down the construction of more than one hundred coal-fired power plants, some of its major cities are still reeling from the toxic smog that blanketed northern China at the beginning of 2017.

But with the China National Energy Administration cancelling a significant number of its planned coal-fired projects, it looks ... More →

Eduardo Porter asks if there is a more environmentally conscious state than California? It has been at the forefront of climate policy for decades, from demanding stringent fuel economy and emissions standards to wholeheartedly embracing renewable energy from the sun and wind.

It has fighting words for the incoming Trump administration. We will not deviate from our leadership because of one election, the State Senate leader, Kevin de Leon, told The New York Times. Last fall, the state legislature committed to cutting its greenhouse gas emissions 40% below their 1990 level by 2030. C... More →

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

WNN reports that in June last year (2016), the French regulator (ASN) said it had identified 18 French nuclear power reactors operated by EDF, of both 900 MWe and 1,450 MWe capacity, whose steam generators could contain high carbon concentrations. Of these, 12 are equipped with channel heads manufactured by JCFC liable to contain a particularly high carbon concentration. A high-carbon content in steel can lead to mechanical properties lower than expected.

The nine that can now be restarted are Bugey 4, Dampierre 3, Fessenheim 1, Gravelines 2 and 4, Saint-Laurent B1, and Tricastin 1,... More →

Stuart Nathan reports that last year, Rolls-Royce announced that it is proposing to develop a SMR capable of producing 220 to 440 MWe depending on its configuration, designed specifically to be built and commissioned in factories, with a reactor module some 16 meters high and 4 meters in diameter, small enough to be transported on a truck, train or barge. Although it included no technical details of the reactor design, its publicity material identifies UK facilities involved in the project that are mostly part of its submarine operations, making it likely that the submarine reactor is the basi...

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

Henry Spitz opines by asking whether there is a better answer to electricity that is supplied 24-7 than nuclear power? Not coal, which emits more carbon than any other form of energy. Not natural gas, which has a history of price volatility. Not solar and wind power, which are of no use when the sun is not shining and the wind does blow enough. The sun only shines about half the time. Wind turbines generate electricity about half the time.

Nothing else in Ohio provides as much full-time clean energy as the Davis-Besse and Perry nuclear power plants. And does it at a price that has b... More →

Bruce Davidson opines that former Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid retirement has breathed new life into plans to store high-level nuclear waste at Nevada Yucca Mountain. The Reid departure is good news for efforts to solve the U.S. nuclear waste storage dilemma ... unless you are among the entrenched Nevada opposition to the Yucca Mountain repository or other anti-nuclear activist groups.

High-level nuclear waste is now stored temporarily at reactor sites around the nation, and reactors continue to produce more waste every year. The revived heartbeat at Yucca Mountain does not me... More →
