WNN reports that the Uranium Producers of America recommends that the DOE should stop all sales by DOE when the uranium spot market price is below the U.S. EIA reported production cost for uranium (currently $35.453 per pound), and that under no circumstance should it transfer more uranium than the U.S. uranium industry is producing that year.

It calls for the DOE to work with Congress to pass legislation establishing statutory limits on excess uranium transfers and enhancing transparency and predictability associated with transfers. It also says the DoE should seek to maximize taxp... More →

Christopher Ecclestone reports that Western Uranium Corporation origins are based on the combination of a number of assets ... the Sunday Mine Complex, the Pinon Ridge Mill project and license and uranium assets in Utah and Colorado. It is still assumed that it is only the top 10% of a series of deposits that one sees above the waterline (water table?).

Though what one sees of Western Uranium data are largely the Sunday Mine Complex, the Hansen/Taylor asset needs serious further consideration particularly because it is larger in resource volume than many of the well-known names of t... More →

Uranium has risen 30% from the very low prices of late last year and a trio of analysts agrees that Energy Fuels is in position to take advantage of a rising price environment. The uranium price rise from the low of $17.75 per lb on Nov. 30, 2016, is fueled by a number of supply and demand factors that has industry watchers optimistic that the tide has turned.

On the supply side, Kazakhstan state-owned Kazatomprom announced in January that it would cut production by 10%. The company supplies 40% of the world uranium. The company also announced the opening of a trading office in Swi... More →
