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.

Mongolia has a long history of uranium exploration commencing with joint Russian and Mongolian endeavors fro... More →

The IAEA operates a number of nuclear fuel cycle related databases and a simulation system now accessible through iNFCIS for long-term projections of nuclear fuel cycle material and service requirements. Their purpose is to provide Member States, the IAEA, and public users with current, consistent, and readily accessible information for planning activities related to the nuclear fuel cycle.

The long-term viability of nuclear power will depend on an adequate supply of uranium resources that can be delivered to the marketplace at competitive prices by environmentally sound mining and milling technology. New exploration technology and a better understanding of ore deposit genesis will be required to explore for and develop increasingly obscure uranium deposits. Similarly, uranium mining, processing and site decommissioning technology will be required to keep pace with expanding environmental regulations. The purpose of the Symposium is to analyze uranium supply-demand relationships ... More →

Collin Kettell opines that Matt Geiger has concluded that 2017 will be a lucrative year for uranium, as we have now observed the bottoming of the bear market. Uranium appears to have reached its bottom in early December. We are in the beginning of a new uranium bull market which should last for three to four years. The agriculture minerals are under-invested and phosphates may be a straight forward play.

Geiger also concludes that the mining juniors are going to continue to do well through 2019. If you have an opportunity to take part in private placements, this is a good way to imp... More →

Dave Forest reports that the top public uranium producer in the world, Cameco, announced that it is restructuring its mining operations in Kazakhstan, with some major changes coming for the firm. The biggest shift is a reduction in Cameco ownership of the Inkai project, a joint venture between the Canadian firm and Kazakh state uranium miner KazAtomProm.

Until now, Cameco has owned 60% of Inkai, with KazAtomProm holding a minority 40%. But that arrangement will now flip, with Cameco saying it has a new agreement with the government to drop its ownership to 40%, while KazAtomProm wil... More →

Jocelyn Aspa reports that the uranium price has seemed to be on its way to a recovery. Kazakhstan plans to cut production buoyed the sector, and as of February 1 uranium was at $26.68 per pound, up 32% year-to-date. However, more recently the uranium price has slid back, and as of February 20 it stood at $24.50.

Given the uranium market underlying fundamentals, its inability to rally is not unexpected. The 2011 Fukushima incident has pushed the commodity into oversupply, and uranium inventory currently stands at about 1.4 billion pounds worldwide, according to UxC.

Kazatomprom Chairman, Askar Zhumagaliyev, announced today that due to the prolonged recovery in the uranium market, planned 2017 production from Republic of Kazakhstan will be reduced by approximately 10%. This will amount to a volume greater than 2,000 MtU or more than 5 million lb U3O8 reduction in 2017 planned output. For greater context, this is equal to 3% of total global uranium production (based on 2015 UxC Consulting figures).

The uranium output of Kazakhstan is produced by mining operations either wholly owned by Kazatomprom, or managed through joint-ventures with internati... More →

Hindustan Times reported that a potentially large uranium deposit, in the Upper Mustang region of Nepal near the border of China was discovered by ground radiometric survey.

According to the news:

The ground radiometric survey was carried out recently in the remote Himalayan region by a team from the department of mines and geology.

Though the quality of the uranium is yet to be ascertained, preliminary research suggests the deposit spread over an area of 10 km in length and 3 km in width could be of medium grade.
