Uranium mining at the Mkuju River Project in Southern Tanzania may start in April, 2016. The Deputy Minister responsible for mining in Ministry of Energy and Mining Charles Kitwanga said following the arrival of heavy machinery. Kitwanga said at full operation, the Mkuju River Project would employ 1,600 people. This would be a blessing to the unemployed youth in Southern Tanzania. Mkuju River Uranium Project is located at Namtumbo District, Ruvuma region about 470 km southwest of Dar es Salaam.

During the life of the mine, the Mkuju River project anticipates US$1 billion of forei... More →

Greg Klein reports that to those who watch uranium, its underachieving price has not just been an ongoing disappointment. It is a source of frustration to those who have made bullish forecasts. Lackey has been less surprised than others, however.

He spoke at a conference last year and might have been the only one who thought uranium was actually going to go down this year, he recalls. It did go down, but way more than he thought, which was about $29 or $28. He thought everybody else was too optimistic about Japan restarting all the units and we have seen excess supply coming out of ... More →

Mkango Resources has identified high grade uranium, niobium and tantalum values at the Thambani project in southern Malawi. Thambani is primarily focused on zones of anomalous uranium and associated niobium and tantalum targets across the Thambani Massif, a nepheline-bearing syenite gneiss which dominates the north eastern part of the license.

Mkango has completed a trenching program across the Thambani Massif primarily focused on two sites of historical uranium exploration, known as the Chikoleka and Little Ngona targets. An initial set of 9 trenches, selected on the basis of anoma... More →

Andrew Topf reports that uranium production in Namibia is expected to triple by 2017 with the ramp-up of the massive Husab mine. In spite of weak commodity prices and relatively slow growth in external demand, the initiation of operation of a large-scale mining project will still support decent levels of economic growth. Namibian output of uranium in 2017, for example, is projected to be more than 3 times the volume produced in 2015, thanks in large part to the Husab uranium mine, Calle Schlettwein, Namibian finance minister. He added that tourism and export-oriented industries are expected to... More →

Wise (1990) reports that anomalous amounts of uranium, radium, and radon are known to occur naturally in groundwater in numerous areas around the U.S. Granites are well known sources of such elevated concentrations of radionuclides. However, many areas such as portions of the Gulf Coast and mid-continent which do not have granites, contain anomalous uranium, radium, and radon in their groundwater.

These occurrences may be the result of roll-front type uranium mineralization in sand aquifers. The placement of water supply wells in or near these deposits will result in the withdrawal... More →

Anthony Milewski reports that of all the metals, uranium probably is the best example of sentiment outweighing fundamentals in the resource sector. While spot price is nearly 30 per cent higher than its eight-year low of approximately US28 dollars per lb. in May last year, it remains far below the estimated US65 dollars a lb. to US70 dollars per lb. required for many uranium producers to make money. That fact alone is one of the biggest reasons that primary production is falling and very few new exploration projects are getting financed.

At time of this article, 65 new reactors are ... More →

Matt L. Wald noticed something odd about what Bernie Sanders claims is part of his energy policy. Senator Bernie Sanders, who does not like nuclear power anywhere, now also does not like it at Indian Point Energy Center. This should not surprise anybody, but Senator Sanders is also against climate change (?), and against fossil fuels. The positions are impossible to reconcile. And Wald was not the only one who have noticed.

A persistent idea is that energy from wind and sun will replace fossil and everything else. And for years, New York has had an aggressive plan to use more renewa... More →

The Salamanca mine, 3 hours drive west of Madrid, currently in construction by Berkeley Energia, is the only new uranium mine of its kind and size being developed in the world today, and when it is operating will be Europe only nearby major source of uranium.

Government reticence about commissioning replacement plants and expansion of nuclear power capacity has changed recently, largely because of increased demand for electricity bolstered by decarbonization treaties. But building new reactors takes time, so the Salamanca project finds itself alone. But it has good reasons to exist.... More →

Greg Klein reports that active in a number of projects in one of the Athabasca Basin most prospective portfolios, ALX Uranium released radon and gravity survey results for Newnham Lake, a 24,544-hectare property on the Basin northeastern margin. A summer program of 454 radon stations and 418 gravity stations found a quasi-linear radon anomaly about 100 metres by 750 metres associated with a north-south trending fault that crosscuts a conductor and coincides with a gravity low.

The radon anomaly was found less than a kilometre from two historic holes that revealed basement uranium a... More →

NexGen Energy Hole AR-15-44b resulted in 56.5 meters (170 feet) grading 11.55% including 20 meters at 20.68% U3O8, and shares in the junior company soared 10.45% Monday. The result was widely hailed by the analyst community. Cantor Fitzgerald Rob Chang now estimates NexGen Arrow resource to be 114.8 million pounds of uranium at an average grade of 0.89%.

Mr. Chang has a Speculative Buy rating and no price target on NexGen shares, which closed at $0.74 Monday. He did however speculate that on a takeout, quality projects in the area could fetch $6-8 per pound of uranium in the ground... More →

Vancouver-based NexGen Energy has world-record results from four angled holes at the Rook I project in the Athabasca Basin. The holes were drilled in the A2 shear at the Arrow deposit.

Drill hole AR-16-76c3 had perhaps the best results. It cut 74.0 meters at 10.25% U3O8 in the higher grade A2 sub-zone. This intersection also includes 50.0 meters at 15.05%, 11.5 meters at 49.53%, and 0.5 metres at 80.00%. Drill hole AR-16-78c1 intersected 37.5 meters at 12.94% U3O8.

NexGen Energy Ltd. discovered off-scale radioactivity, Bow Discovery, approximately 3.7 km northeast and along trend from the Arrow zone in the Rook I property, Athabasca Basin. Bow is now a high priority area, and is coincident with the recent radon anomaly that tracks the strike of a VTEM conductor from 730 meters up to 140 meters wide. This particular radon anomaly has the highest reading of all known radon anomalies in the area with a peak reading of 36.0 pCi per L, and is 80 m south of off-scale radioactivity drilled in hole BO-15-10.

The company has released two sets of results this week, with the first set covering six holes and featuring the strongest assay to date in the A3 shear. However, it is the NexGen Energy second set that is of interest ... that set highlights AR-15-62, a single angled hole at Rook I Arrow zone.

And CEO Leigh Curyer anticipates more good news as soon as the winter assays arrive. Hence an update anticipated later this year and a further milestone, possibly going straight to pre-feasibility, seems likely for 2017.

Christopher Ecclestone reports that no one in the West paid much attention to Nigerian mining activities before 2003 and hardly anyone knew that Niger was an important uranium producer. All that changed in the run-up to the Iraq War where the smoking gun for the invasion of Iraq was the supposed attempts by Saddam Hussein of Iraq to obtain yellowcake from Niger to feed some sort of nuclear program. Subsequently the whole affair proved to be a bogus false-flag operation and the matter degenerated into a morass of lawsuits known as the Plame Affair.

The northern Flinders Ranges, Lake Frome plains region is one of the state's most prospective areas for mineral exploration (particularly for uranium), however, there are still major parts of the geological framework that are unresolved. One of the main parts of the region's geology that is poorly understood is the regolith and associated landscape history. This is surprising given the dramatic exposures of a wide range of regolith materials and landforms as well as the importance of this part of the geological history for the dispersion, expression and secondary concentration of uranium miner...
