While uranium players will welcome the restart of Japan first nuclear reactor, it may take a while for a meaningful recovery in prices. Kyushu Electric Power confirmed on Monday that Sendai nuclear power unit no 1 would be restarted yesterday and be generating electricity by Friday. Full operation is expected in early September. It marks the first Japanese restart since the Fukushima nuclear disaster in early 2011.

The uranium spot price remains at $US 36.00 per pound. Londons Numis Securities estimates it will take more than that to break the current stalemate between uranium produ... More →

The Miriam deposit is within the larger Madaouela project in Niger. The key objective of this drilling program is to delineate additional mineral resources amenable to lower-cost, open-pit mining, says GoviEx CEO Daniel Major.

We are testing a possible south-west extension of the Miriam deposit and, if successful, may potentially add to its existing mineral resources and could result in prolonging the Madaouela project mine-life beyond that projected in the company 2015 Integrated Development Plan, which has the potential to further optimize the Madaouela project economics.

GoviEx Uranium has concluded a definitive agreement with African Energy Resources to acquire its uranium mineral interests in Zambia. The transaction is intended to unify prospective uranium properties adjacent to GoviEx Uranium Mutanga mine.

The combination of African Energy Resources Chirundu and Kiraba Valley tenements and GoviEx Mutanga project will allow us to unitize these neighboring properties, significantly enlarging and improving the potential economies of scale, says GoviEx executive chairman Govind Friedland. This acquisition complements their strategy to be the consolid... More →

Andrew Watson reports that this is the first article which will look at some of the great mineral deposits of the world. These are the mega-deposits that keep hopeful young junior geologists up at night dreaming of drill cores, the kind that are the subject of a million conference papers and make or break legendary figures. Watson writes about one of the biggest and baddest of them all- Olympic Dam in South Australia. It is unimaginably large and has a huge impact since it was discovered. It was the first active mine to crack 1 trillion dollars in metal resources, it caused huge political upro... More →

Shares in Greenland Minerals and Energy have surged on the back of a landmark uranium development agreement between Greenland and Denmark. Greenland Minerals, which has the undeveloped Kvanefjeld uranium and rare-earths project in Greenland, was up more than 10% on strong trade in early markets.

The announcement that Denmark and Greenland have reached formal agreement to establish an internal framework related to the mining and export of uranium from Greenland is seen as a positive step forward in the potential commercialism of Kvanefjeld. The agreements are anticipated to be execut... More →

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 →
