Dave Forest reports that the top public uranium producer in the world, Cameco, announced that it is restructuring its mining operations in Kazakhstan, with some major changes coming for the firm. The biggest shift is a reduction in Cameco ownership of the Inkai project, a joint venture between the Canadian firm and Kazakh state uranium miner KazAtomProm.

Until now, Cameco has owned 60% of Inkai, with KazAtomProm holding a minority 40%. But that arrangement will now flip, with Cameco saying it has a new agreement with the government to drop its ownership to 40%, while KazAtomProm wil... More →

Yalley and Bansah (2015) report that small-scale mining of precious minerals has contributed immensely to the socio-economic growth of Ghana. The sector provides employment for thousands of people, mostly indigenes of the communities in which they operate, and thereby stemming rural-urban migration. The small-scale mining sector in Ghana also provides raw materials for locally based mineral industries and contributes to foreign exchange earnings. The mining is done with various methods... the Anomabo method, the Chisel and Hammer method, Underground Ghetto method, the Dig-and-Wash method, the... More →

Biswajit Choudhury reports that there is a misconception that the Indian atomic energy program has been slow in developing breeder reactors that will be fueled by the Indian vast thorium deposits, a foremost nuclear expert says.

Former Atomic Energy Commission chairman and ex-secretary Department of Atomic Energy, M.R. SrinivasanIndia said that they have not been slow in developing next generation nuclear reactors that would use thorium as a fuel. Such notions are misconceived. No one in the world is ahead of us in this direction, he told IANS.

Chris Berry reports that the deal in which China Molybdenum Co. agreed to pay Freeport McMoRan $2.65 billion for FCX African copper assets reaffirms our view that asset shedding from the FCX project portfolio will continue. FCX, with a $13 Billion market capitalization, made a bad bet in diversifying into the oil business at the cyclical peak and now must reckon with roughly $20 Billion in debt on their balance sheet.

While it is a shame to have to part with such high quality assets, what Berry noticed was the fact that FCX has agreed to negotiate exclusively with China Moly on the... More →

Greg Klein reports that lithium mining and exploration is the hottest commodity in the world, with parabolic prices amid a rush to find new sources of supply. But can lithium sustain this level of enthusiasm? Consider the collapse of uranium in 2007, rare earths in 2011, graphite in 2012 and, in this case, lithium itself between 2009 and 2011. Is this time different? Or should we heed a cautionary tale?

We live in very exciting times in terms of how energy is used, generated and stored, and lithium is at the epicentre of that, says Chris Berry. As an analyst with House Mountain Part... More →
