Tom Lydon, of ETF Trends, opines that after a multi-year run of disappointing investors, the Global X Uranium ETF, which holds uranium miners, started rebounding in significant fashion in the 4th quarter. That ebullience has carried into 2017 with the uranium exchange traded fund higher by more than 23%.

However, investors still need to approach URA with some caution. For example, URA has pulled big in a big way after touching a 52-week high. From that high above $19, URA now resides closer to $16, a decline that took just a few weeks to materialize.

The Chinese CGN Mining Co. Ltd. has bought a nearly 20-per-cent stake in Fission Uranium Corp., marking the first time a Chinese company has directly invested in a Canadian uranium company, Fission said on Monday.

The $82.2-million deal may lead to more Chinese investment in Canadian uranium developers such as Denison Mines Corp. and Nexgen Energy Ltd., said Cantor Fitzgerald analyst Rob Chang. Canada is the second biggest uranium-producing country in the world after Kazakhstan or Australia, depending on what reserves are included.

David Stanway and Kathy Chen report that China will expand its strategic uranium reserves as part of its five-year plan for 2016-2020, with the aim of ensuring it has enough fuel to supply the large program of new nuclear reactors. Beijing, which began stockpiling uranium in 2007 and is estimated by the World Nuclear Association to have 74,000 tons of inventory, or about nine years of current demand, does not disclose details of its reserves so this number may be speculation.

However, demand is expected to outstrip domestic supply in coming years and a move to increase reserves coul... More →

UEX Corp has increased the width of the new discovery zone along the western margin of the Orora Zone at the Christie Lake project in Canada. With its latest results, UEX said it had identified an ultra-high grade structural trap ranging from 8-16 meters wide, skirted by a halo of uranium mineralisation.

President and CEO Roger Lemaitre said the team had begun to understand the orientation of the deposit and was eagerly awaiting the summer drill program. UEX Corp rated highly in the RSC Mining & Mineral Exploration drill results table last month with earlier drilling from its wi... More →

The South China Morning Post reported that China National Nuclear Corp subsidiary CNNC International is sizing up acquisition opportunities to help meet the increased domestic demand spurred by the expansion of the Chinese nuclear power program.

The Beijing-based company, which develops and trades overseas uranium resources, was particularly interested in Kazakhstan, Canada and Australia, which were home to rich uranium resources with promising development opportunities, CNNC International chief executive Wang Ying said after its annual shareholders meeting yesterday.

The preliminary estimate for the value of non-energy minerals and uranium mined in Colorado in 2008 is $2.155 billion. This represents an 12% increase over the 2007 total of $1.93 billion. The metals sector, including molybdenum, gold, silver, vanadium and the energy mineral uranium, contributed $1.5 billion. Industrial minerals, including sand, gravel, stone, clay, gypsum, cement and nahcolite, were valued at $654 million.

Kerri Rempp reports that in the wake of a win before the Atomic Safety and Licensing Board, Crow Butte Uranium Mine also received support from the Dawes County Commissioners as a review of a proposed change in regulations continues.

Vlad Dorjets, of the U.S. Office of Management and Budget, hosted a conference call Dec. 20 with the county commissioners and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission regarding possible changes to 40 CFR Part 192, which addresses uranium and thorium mining. The regulation was first issued in 1983 and was last revised in 1995.

The overall commodities market tanked -5.1 per cent in Q1, 2015, weighed on by fossil fuels with oil and natural gas down -11.7 per cent and -7.1 per cent respectively. However, it was a different energy-related commodity that had the last laugh.

Uranium quietly led the pack in Q1, 2015 with an impressive 11.6 per cent gain. It is trading close to the 40 dollars per pound level, which is a sizable increase from the 30 dollart level it was trading at last summer. JPMorgan Chase and Co. sees the price averaging 42 dollars this year, and moving to a spot price of 50 dollars in 2016.More →

Over the past few years, C&A personnel (now I2M Associates personnel) noticed an increase in the number of poorly written, inaccurate, and deceptive articles that were produced by various types of media on the subject of nuclear power, uranium exploration and mining, and associated environmental issues. These reports came from the national media, national and local adversarial groups, local citizen's groups and the attorneys who represent them. Because they all seem to have many shortcomings in common, C&A personnel began in 2007 to examine them in some detail. Effective April 1, 2010,... More →

The Petro-Find Geochem soil gas method, which is well proven for the exploration of oil and gas reservoirs using light hydrocarbons as pathfinders, has been adapted for uranium exploration. Helium concentrations in soil gas can be related to underlying uranium deposits, which generates alpha particles during the radioactive decay process. Alpha particles pick up two electrons to form helium. Hydrogen, produced by the radiolysis of water by uranium, is also a useful pathfinder. It is becoming clearer that neon, an indirect product of uranium decay, can be used as a pathfinder for uranium minera... More →

Michael Marks reports that a recently released report from the United States Geologic Survey bolsters that status, but in an unexpected way.

South Texas, evidently, could be sitting on over 200 million pounds of uranium, the main ingredient in nuclear energy, trapped in sandstone hundreds of feet beneath the surface. Although there are already two uranium mines in South Texas, the findings represent more of the element than was previously thought to exist in the area.

David Louis reports that Mohave County officials will soon step up lobbying efforts to convince the new administration to lift a 20-year ban on uranium mining on the Arizona strip. The ban, imposed in 2012, carved out more than 1 million acres north of Lake Havasu City from mining operations. Mohave County Supervisor Buster Johnson would like to see the moratorium lifted.

With enough pressure, they trust that the new administration will realize the economic strain imposed on Mohave County and other counties in Arizona because of the Obama administration 2012 withdrawal, Johnson said... More →

In past interviews with Streetwise Reports, Sadowski predicted that the price of uranium will rise this year. But that has not panned out. He reported that there is a short-term supply problem in the uranium industry. He has concluded, however, in the long term, supply will not be able to keep up with demand growth.

The advent of oxygenic photosynthesis changed Earth’s surface environment in numerous ways, perhaps most notably by making possible the evolution of large and complex life-forms. Current models suggest that organisms that can perform oxygenic photosynthesis first took hold in isolated marine and freshwater basins, producing local oxygen oases. Here we present calculations that suggest that uranium deposits could have formed at the margins of these basins due to the strong local reductionoxidation gradients. Because of the high abundance of 235U at this time, these uranium deposits could ... More →

Elevated gamma-ray emission from discrete beds in sedimentary deposits may conventionally be interpreted as representing flooding surfaces or transgressive beds. Potassium (K), uranium (U), or (less commonly) thorium (Th) concentrations in outcrop or borehole successions cause such elevated gamma-ray emission and may be linked to the presence of specific mineral hosts. Furthermore, specific Th/K and Th/U ratios occur at correlated stratigraphic surfaces
