Throughout 2016, NexGen Energy Ltd. has been announcing drill results. On Dec. 20, NexGen released the results from the final 10 holes of the 2016 drill program at the Arrow deposit, part of the Rook I property in the Athabasca Basin in Saskatchewan, Canada.

David Talbot, an analyst with Dundee Capital Partners, noted that positive highlights include four intercepts along A2 Shear, and another on A3 Shear. Mineralization continues to be intersected at higher than the current resource grade of 2.63% U3O8.

These results, Talbot stated that NexGen has completed their 2016 73... More →

Greg Klein reports that NexGen Energy just reported the highest grade intersects ever encountered in uranium exploration. Reporting some winter results from the Patterson Lake South-adjacent Rook 1 project on June 15, the company announced the Arrow zone is the most continually mineralized intersection so far. Located on the southwestern edge of the A2 and A3 shears, hole AR-15-44b showed a major interval of increasingly high grades:

9.56% U3O8 over 68.5 metres (206 feet), starting at 499.5 metres in downhole depth drilled at a -75 degree dip

NexGen announced further results from their ongoing spring drilling program on their 100% owned Rook I Property, Athabasca Basin, Saskatchewan. Drilling at the area 180 m southwest of Arrow has intersected significant off-scale radioactivity associated with extensive visible uranium mineralization. All 3 holes in this area have intersected off-scale mineralization.
    
A total of 11 drill holes have now encountered mineralization in this area, which remains    open in    all directions and has currently established a strike... More →

Christopher Ecclestone reports that no one in the West paid much attention to Nigerian mining activities before 2003 and hardly anyone knew that Niger was an important uranium producer. All that changed in the run-up to the Iraq War where the smoking gun for the invasion of Iraq was the supposed attempts by Saddam Hussein of Iraq to obtain yellowcake from Niger to feed some sort of nuclear program. Subsequently the whole affair proved to be a bogus false-flag operation and the matter degenerated into a morass of lawsuits known as the Plame Affair. It turned out that a former US ambassador had ... More →

BBC reports that adversaries in Niger, one of the biggest uranium producers in the world of the metal and is the country largest export. The country is said to have lost $3.25 million.

Their complaint alleges embezzlement of public funds, money laundering, forgery and conspiracy to defraud. The legal action centers on the allegation that Areva in 2011 bought stock from Niger at a discounted price.

WNN reports that Canada-based GoviEx submitted its mining permit application in July 2015, having completed an environmental and social impact assessment for the project earlier in the year. Last week, the country's government issued the company with a permit to mine uranium at Madouela in the Arlit region of northern Niger.

According to documentation from Niger's Council of Ministers, the scope of GoviEx's licence application covers 243 square kilometres of the site funded by investments of $676 million. GoviEx was awarded exploration permits for Madaouela 1 in 2006, and company ch... More →

The northern Flinders Ranges, Lake Frome plains region is one of the state's most prospective areas for mineral exploration (particularly for uranium), however, there are still major parts of the geological framework that are unresolved. One of the main parts of the region's geology that is poorly understood is the regolith and associated landscape history. This is surprising given the dramatic exposures of a wide range of regolith materials and landforms as well as the importance of this part of the geological history for the dispersion, expression and secondary concentration of uranium miner...

The lengthy decision comes months, and hundreds of legal filings, after the Nuclear Regulatory Commission Atomic Safety and Licensing Board took testimony on a contested license the NRC granted to Powertech Uranium, now Azarga Uranium, to develop its Dewey-Burdock in situ leach uranium facility near Edgemont.

The mine site at Olympic Dam in the far north has the largest known uranium deposit in the world, but chief government geologist Steve Hill told the inquiry South Australia had untapped resources. He said the far-west of the state is a big black hole in geophysical knowledge.

Nuclear power plays a major role in generation of electricity around the world. Its importance is expected to grow, as demand for more clean energy is accelerating and emerging markets such as China and India are in need of stronger electrical infrastructure.

A recent report by the World Nuclear Association indicates that Mainland China has 36 nuclear power reactors in operation, 21 under construction, and more about to start construction. The planned reactors will include some of the world most advanced, and are designed to give a doubling of nuclear capacity to at least 58 GWe by... More →

In a damning letter to Quebec Environment Minister David Heurtel, the chief executive officer of the CNSC, Michael Binder, says it is very troubling to have a provincial agency present your government with conclusions and recommendations that lack scientific basis and rigor.

NexGen Energy drilling at Arrow produces strongest and shallowest mineralization to date. Recent drill results revealed today in a press release by Canadian-based NexGen Energy showed exciting potential at the Arrow uranium project in the Athabasca Basin, Saskatchewan. Featuring nine widely spaced holes, 5 with off-scale radioactivity, and very clear strike and width dimensions provided. To get volumetric tonnage potential, simple calculations suggest that a 515 meter strike, 180 meter width, a depth of 50 meter (most intervals have run 50 meters plus of total composite mineralization) and ass...

Andrew Topf reports that uranium investors are being urged to exercise caution in the short term due to three events which could affect the prices of the nuclear fuel and the companies that mine it, according to a recent report by Dundee Capital Markets.

The three catalysts, says the report by three sector specialists at Dundee, relate to the highly significant restarts of Japanese nuclear reactors shut down after the Fukushima accident in 2011, and the activities of Japanese electric utility TEPCO.

Regarding TEPCO, there are media reports saying that TEPCO wants to sell ... More →

The Department of Natural Resources announced a potentially precedent-setting decision to allow Australian Paladin Energy Ltd. majority ownership of a uranium mine in Newfoundland and Labrador.

The decision could help draw foreign capital into uranium projects in Saskatchewan, one of the largest producers in the world, said David Talbot, an analyst at Dundee Securities. It may help inc... More →

The Four Mile uranium deposit represents a recent mineral exploration success and furthering knowledge of its geological context will aid the development of regional mineral exploration models. The deposit is located 550 km north of Adelaide and 10 km west of the Beverley uranium mine in the northern Flinders Ranges‚ Lake Frome Plains region. The sandstone-hosted mineralisation occurs as two distinct zones (Four Mile East and Four Mile West) and the total inferred resource is 9.8 Mt at 0.33% U3O8 with an estimated contained
commodity of 32 000 t U3O8.

Kristen Moran reports that the uranium price has not yet seen the big rebound market as yet, and as a result some companies are finding it difficult to remain in production. Meanwhile, those that have not reached production status are having a tough time gaining the capital they need to launch projects.

That is what makes the announcement by Peninsula Energy intriguing. Not only has the company decided to move forward with its Lance project in Wyoming, despite the current uranium price, but it also has enough money to bring that project into production. Furthermore, it has secured s... More →
