Index / Uranium (Nuclear Minerals) / Exploration, Mining, Marketing, Acquisitions

Signal geologists suggest that there are many shallow uranium deposits along the lower coastal plain of Texas that are commonly associated with oil and gas resources. Where uranium is present, the surrounding rock and groundwater register as radioactive because rock contains minerals that exhibit the natural uranium decay process.

In 2003, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) established a Maximum Contaminant Level or MCL for uranium concentrations in drinking water of 30 micrograms per liter - approximately 30 parts per billion - or the equivalent of 30 grains of salt in a bi... More →

Donald Levit reports that uranium prices have started to edge higher, with the commodity advancing by $2.00 in December to close at $20.25 per lb. The 10% positive monthly movement was the first time in a while that the commodity ascended.

Uranium fell from $35 per lb. at the start of 2016 as the near-term demand for the commodity sunk. Uranium has been in the doldrums since the 2011 Fukushima nuclear tsunami dented demand for the commodity. Analysts have remained long-term bulls on uranium prices, continuously expecting a recovery, but their bullish calls have repetitively been mi... More →

Rob Chang reports the sentiment of companies attending the conference was positive, which is refreshing considering the current uncertainty in the market. Everyone was pointing to the upcoming supply/demand deficit, when it is going to occur, and how they are positioning themselves for that recovery. Depending on who the company is, they may be more conservative than others, but generally speaking it is about managing the businesses properly in advance of future growth.

Companies at the conference estimate that a uranium deficit will come sometime in the early 2020s, while analysts ... More →

Kristen Moran reports that uranium market participants tend to focus on catalysts like reactor restarts in Japan and new plant builds in China, but the recent news that an Australian governmental committee supports the Australia-India uranium trade deal makes it clear that India is worth watching as well.

India plans to triple its nuclear capacity by 2024, from 5 gigawatts up to 17 gigawatts, and is aiming to have 25% of its electricity come from nuclear power by 2050. At present, the Southeast Asian nation has 21 nuclear reactors in operation and six under construction, as well as ... More →

Where a longtime no-go mining nation looks to be on the verge of signing a major deal to restart production. That is Argentina. A country with substantial uranium deposits, which have been under a mining moratorium since 1997.

But that could soon change, according to reports from Bloomberg at a nuclear summit being held in Argentina. With the news service citing familiar persons as saying that one of the biggest owners of uranium projects in the country has signed up a deal for developm... More →

In situ leach (ISL) mining, also called in situ recovery (ISR) mining (these terms are considered to be synonymous in this publication), has become a standard uranium mining production method. In this IAEA report, ISL mining refers to a special form of solution mining applied to ore deposits in sedimentary, saturated aquifers by using injection and extraction wells from the surface. This report does not include detailed consideration of any kind of leaching in unsaturated formations or of block leaching in underground mine works.

In the past, ISL was first developed in south Texas, ... More →

Alkali metasomatism, a common geological process, is sometimes associated with uranium ore forming processes. Metasomatite uranium deposits are usually confined to areas of tectono-magmatic activity affected by intense sodium, sodium carbonate and potassium metasomatism along deep rooted fault systems. Granite, gneiss, migmatite, metasediments or metavolcanics could be metasomatised this manner and host uranium mineralization.

Several sub-types and classes of mineralization are found, such as (a) sodium metasomatite with granite and metasediment or metavolcanic derived deposits; (b)... More →

Global uranium demand is expected to grow by 40% to 120% by 2035 due to accelerated growth of nuclear power. Planned capacity from existing and committed production centres can satisfy only about 80% of the low case requirements and about 50% of the high case requirements by 2035. Additional production centres based to a large extent on yet-to-be-discovered resources are therefore required to fill in the gap and assure security of supplies. Uranium exploration and development efforts are increasing worldwide, and currently a total expenditure of approximately USD 1.3 billion is incurred in mor... More →

Tom Zoellner reports that the birthplace of the Bomb has been forgotten by the outside world, but not by everyone. Teams of Congolese miners kept slipping inside the old pit to dig out residual supplies of copper and cobalt, which they sell on the black market. Zoellner said that there have been persistent rumors, and some occasional instances, of local businessmen selling uranium to outside parties. There is also evidence that some of the Shinkolobwe uranium has found its way into Iranian centrifuges, though this remains publicly unconfirmed by Western intelligence agencies.

India and Mongolia plan to begin governmental talks in Mid-2017 on trading in uranium, a mineral abundant in the land-locked Asian country and a key attraction for New Delhi as it seeks new sources of fuel for its ever-growing chain of nuclear plants by needing a tighter partnership with a nation on the periphery of China. But also, Mongolia will be testing its traditional dependence on China by increasing its engagement with other countries i.e., going beyond China dominion.
