Although there are between 12 and 15 different typestyles of uranium deposits, almost all economic uranium deposits come from just two types -

unconformity-related deposits, and

sandstone uranium deposits.

Unconformity-related deposits account for around on third of the uranium production, while sandstone uranium deposits account for another third. The remaining third of production comes from a variety of the remaining 10 or so deposit types.

The most common uranium mineral is uraninite or pitchblende. There are a range of other uranium minerals incl... More →

The uranium spot price could be in for some big moves this week following major accidents last week at the Rio Tinto Rossing mine in Namibia and the BHP Billiton Olympic Dam in Australia.

Rossing and Olympic Dam are two of the biggest uranium mines, and accounted for 8 percent of global uranium supply in 2014. Production stoppages there will thus impact supply. The uranium spot price is currently sitting unchanged from last week at 38.25 dollar per pound of U3O8. Analysts expect the uranium spot price to make a big move, jumping to 40 dollars per pound of U3O8, if not higher.

IAEA TECHNICAL REPORTS SERIES No 341 - 1992

The role of the analytical chemistry laboratory is, simply stated, to provide analytical support both to uranium exploration and to uranium ore processing activities.

While it is recognized that providing analytical support to either exploration or ore processing programmes requires skill and discipline, support for both increases the difficulties. The two activities might be submitting analytical input simultaneously, with varying demands and priorities. These workloads may often be in conflict, imposing stringent demands upon ... More →

French uranium giant Areva says it has secured approval to nearly double production of the nuclear fuel at its McClean Lake mill in northern Saskatchewan. The company said Tuesday that the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission gave the go ahead to increase production at the mill from 13 to 24 million pounds a year.

The higher capacity will allow Areva to process more material coming from the Cigar Lake uranium mine, half owned by Cameco, as it ramps up production to 18 million pounds a year. The increase in allowed capacity comes as the uranium industry faces continued depressed prices... More →

Dr. Conca reports that in the wake of the COP21 climate meeting in Paris, which subtly endorsed nuclear power, and the aggressive move by China to build a nuclear plant a month, the supplies of uranium are once again in the spotlight.

The price of uranium for fuel in nuclear reactors has had a complicated history over the last forty years (see figure below). After the 2011 Tohoku tsunami and Fukushima reactor accidents, uranium prices dropped about 60%, bottoming out near $30/lb in mid-2014. By late 2013, all of Japanese nuclear facilities were completely shut down.

Jaireth, et al.,(2008) report that the geology of uranium deposits in Kazakhstan points to similar deposits in Australia. Sandstone uranium deposits account for approximately 30% of annual global production, largely through in situ leach (ISL) mining. Most of this production has come from deposits in the western U.S., Niger and Kazakhstan.

In Australia, sandstone-hosted uranium is being produced from the Beverley deposit in the Frome Embayment of South Australia, and a second ISL mine is under development at Honeymoon in the same region. Such deposits form where uranium-bearing oxi... More →

Australia's uranium has been mined since 1954, and three mines are currently operating. More are planned. Australia's known uranium resources are the largest in the world or 31% of the world total.

In 2014, Australia produced 5897 tonnes of U3O8 (5000 tU). It is the third-ranking producer in the world, behind Kazakhstan and Canada. All production is exported.

Australia uses no nuclear power, but with high reliance on coal, any likely carbon constraints on electricity generation will make it a strong possibility.
