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.

Nuclear reactors in the U.S. purchased 53 million pounds of uranium in 2014, according to the U.S. Energ... More →

David Sadowski advises the investor to take advantage of the temporary bear market in uranium juniors. The Raymond James mining analyst explains why uranium prices are low and why they will rise in the medium term. 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 point at which we previously expected demand to outstrip supply... More →

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

Energy Fuels announced that it has acquired a 50 per cent stake in the high grade Wate uranium deposit in northern Arizona, in an area where it has a currently-producing mine, and recently announced plans to restart mining operations at one of its existing properties. The company said northern Arizona contains the highest grade uranium deposits in the U.S., and some of the highest grade deposits in the world outside of Canada's Athabasca Basin.

This is because the area is known for its breccia pipe deposits, which often contain high-grades of uranium. The company is currently-produ... More →

The EPA initially proposed new health and environmental protection standards for uranium in-situ recovery (ISR) facilities on January 26, 2015, however, the EPA has decided to re-propose the rule and seek additional public comment on changes to the original proposal, including changes in the regulatory framework and approach, based on public comment and new information received from stakeholders.

In the ISR process, fluids are injected into an ore-bearing aquifer to mobilize uranium. Extraction wells then collect the groundwater, which is processed at the surface to obtain the urani... More →

The first standards for uranium recovery were issued by the EPA in 1983 when
conventional mining and milling were the predominant methods of uranium extraction, and were last amended in 1995. Since the early 1990s, ISR has mostly replaced conventional milling. This proposed rule would strengthen the existing regulations for uranium recovery by adopting new standards addressing groundwater hazards specific to ISR facilities. As with the original proposal, the primary focus of this proposal is groundwater protection, restoration and long-term stability.
