The examination of gamma-ray spectrometric data of the Missikat area was found to be useful in locating areas worth exploring for uranium occurrence. The statistical treatment of these data shows that the uranium threshold level is 13 ppm. Such a value represents indirectly the presence of uranium mineralization and identifies anomalous areas on the eU contour map in the northern border of the Missikat-Ria El Gerra granitic plutons. This area should be of prime concern in uranium exploration of these plutons. The interpretation of the variation in the eU/eTh ratio with eU and eTh suggests that... More →

Based upon research on alteration in the Dongsheng and Huangling uranium mineralised areas, Ordos Basin, three stages have been distinguished in the lower member of the Zhiluo Formation: an early-stage red oxidation of hematization and goethitization; a middle-stage yellowish green and greyish blue hydrocarbon related reduction of smectitization, chloritization, pyritization; and a latestage yellow oxidation of goethitization and limonitization. The fact that the mean TOC value of red sandstone and yellowish green and greyish blue sandstone are evidently lower than that of the original grey sa... More →

Eugene Kiely reports that the Peter Schweizer in his new book - Clinton Cash ... - falsely claimed Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State had veto power and could have stopped Russia from buying a company with extensive uranium mining operations in the U.S. In fact, only the President has such power. Kiely suggests that Schweizer is trafficking in pure political speculation for the benefit of Fox TV viewers.

September, 2015 - Key Facts
Mines operate under stringent federal and state regulations established to protect workers and the environment. The Federal Mine Safety and Health Act of 1977 gives the U.S. Department of Labor the authority to issue and enforce health and safety standards for working conditions in underground and surface mining, milling and related operations. Within the Department of Labor, the Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) is responsible for oversight and enforcement of the mine safety act; the Occupational Safety and Health Administration has authority over o...

Kerri Rempp reports that the Crow Butte Uranium Mine at Crawford will be allowed to continue its operation according to a partial ruling issued by the Atomic Safety and Licensing Board (ASLB). In its second partial ruling Dec. 7, the ASLB ruled on the eight remaining contentions in the case, finding in favor of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) environmental analysis (EA) on seven contentions and issuing a split ruling on one contention. Despite finding that the EA did not meet the required standards in one area, the ASLB declined to stop mining operations at the site.

A year ago, the Atomic Safety and Licensing Board gave a license to what is now Azarga Uranium Corp. for the proposed mine near Edgemont, SD. The license was put on hold after mine opponents, including the Oglala Sioux Tribe, raised questions about possible damage that would be done to nearby aquifers and cultural sites.

In late April, the board ruled in Azarga favor on five of seven challenges brought upon by the Tribe and Consolidated Intervenors, a group that opposes the company plan to mine uranium using a method that involves the injection of oxygen-enriched water into the grou... More →

Windhoek-Swakop Uranium produced its first drum of uranium ore concentrates (yellowcake) from its Husab mine on the evening of Friday, December 30, 2016. Capital investment in the project to date exceeds US$2 billion. Speaking at a presentation to mark the occasion, CEO Zheng Keping indicated that the Husab mine is in production, bringing new vigour and vitality to the ancient Namib desert.

The first production marks a significant milestone in development of the mine, which began 10 years ago. The initial exploration and discovery took place in 2006. Following resource definition a... More →

Jocelyn Aspa reports that in northern Saskatchewan, tucked away behind forests and largely inaccessible by most methods of transportation, is the Athabasca Basin. The region, which covers approximately 100,000 square kilometers in Saskatchewan and a small part of Alberta, is home to the largest source of high-grade uranium in the world. It supplies 20% of global production.

While the mining area for high-grade uranium has historically been on the eastern side of the Basin, discoveries on the western side of the basin are growing rapidly. In particular, the outside mark of the Basin ... More →

Fission Uranium has released assay results from 68 holes of its recent winter drilling program. Of particular note are holes that returned composited assay intervals including an astounding 9.34 percent U3O8 over 10.0m and 26.32 per cent U3O8 over 1.0m within an interval of 3.78 percent U3O8 over 49.0m, which returned composited assay intervals of 10.35 percent U3O8 over 14.0m within a larger interval of 3.96 percent U3O8 over 40.0m. Six holes of the eight holes returned substantial high-grade assays and all eight holes intersected widespread mineralization.

Dr. Conca indicates that the common wisdom, that limited uranium supplies will prevent a substantial increase in nuclear energy, is incorrect. We have plenty of uranium, enough for the next 10,000 years. But uranium supplies are governed by the same market forces as any other commodity, and projections only include what is cost-effective today. Like natural gas, numerous sources of uranium abound.

The worlds fastest-growing energy sources are renewables and nuclear, but both are only increasing by 2.5% per year. Fossil fuels, however, will still be supplying well over 70% of the wor... More →

1. China will have a major demand for uranium as the number of its nuclear reactors increases from 36 today to 52 by 2020.

2. The global push toward cleaner and greener energy is good for uranium. Nuclear is the only form of base-load energy that emits zero carbon.
