The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) is setting up a new fund to deal with the legacy of Soviet-era uranium mining and processing in the Kyrgyz Republic, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. The new account with the name Environmental Remediation Account for Central Asia is being established at the request of the European Commission, which is providing an initial 8 million euros, with additional funding under consideration.

The fund will finance projects to rehabilitate high-priority sites in the countries where it will operate, the Bank reported. Central Asia served a... More →

Zoltan Ban reports that taking the announced proven, measured and half of indicated resources together, EF has about 56.5 million pounds. At current production rate, the reserve base would be sufficient for over 100 years of production. Ban indicates that one cannot expect production to remain at current levels, however, so a more realistic estimate would be about 25-50 years, depending on future production choices.

In terms of the EF valuation, EF currently trades at a market cap of just over 200 million Canadian dollars, or about $150 million. Assuming an average realized price of... More →

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 →

Uranium has risen 30% from the very low prices of late last year and a trio of analysts agrees that Energy Fuels is in position to take advantage of a rising price environment. The uranium price rise from the low of $17.75 per lb on Nov. 30, 2016, is fueled by a number of supply and demand factors that has industry watchers optimistic that the tide has turned.

On the supply side, Kazakhstan state-owned Kazatomprom announced in January that it would cut production by 10%. The company supplies 40% of the world uranium. The company also announced the opening of a trading office in Swi... 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.

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 →
