Matthew L. Wald is an ex-media reporter of 38 years for the New York Times. He began his presentation by saying that people in the corporate world, the laboratory and the academic world look at newsrooms like a black box. You can see what they produce but you can not figure out the inner workings. Well, news flash, journalists look at industry and science the same way. Especially the utility industry. Having recently made the transition from one world to the other, I have been asked to play translator for a few minutes here today, he said.

Bertrand Marotte reports that the head of the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) slammed a report by the Province and its environmental regulation agency for allegedly misleading Quebeckers and Canadians on the safety of uranium mining. In a damning letter to Quebec Environment Minister David Heurtel, the chief executive officer of the CNSC, Michael Binder, says it is very troubling to have a provincial agency present your government with conclusions and recommendations that lack scientific basis and rigor.

Drilling in the United States totaled 78 in May and 14 in Canada, for a total of a minimum of 92 North American drills during the month. Compared with April's 86 drills, Canada decreased by 3 drills (due to thawing muskeg) and the US increased in drilling activity with permits for 9 new drills to be reported active. Some drilling reports requests were not returned due to increased management pressures. AREVA has postponed indefinitely the planned Eagle Rock Enrichment Facility nuclear manufacturing plant in Newport News, Virginia, due to unfavorable market conditions and uncertainty over US en...

NexGen Energy drilling at Arrow produces strongest and shallowest mineralization to date. Recent drill results revealed today in a press release by Canadian-based NexGen Energy showed exciting potential at the Arrow uranium project in the Athabasca Basin, Saskatchewan. Featuring nine widely spaced holes, 5 with off-scale radioactivity, and very clear strike and width dimensions provided. To get volumetric tonnage potential, simple calculations suggest that a 515 meter strike, 180 meter width, a depth of 50 meter (most intervals have run 50 meters plus of total composite mineralization) and ass...

Andrew Topf reports that uranium investors are being urged to exercise caution in the short term due to three events which could affect the prices of the nuclear fuel and the companies that mine it, according to a recent report by Dundee Capital Markets.

The three catalysts, says the report by three sector specialists at Dundee, relate to the highly significant restarts of Japanese nuclear reactors shut down after the Fukushima accident in 2011, and the activities of Japanese electric utility TEPCO.

Regarding TEPCO, there are media reports saying that TEPCO wants to sell ... More →

Tim Shufelt reports the Canadian federal government has provided a measure of relief to the depressed uranium mining sector, granting an exemption to foreign ownership restrictions on producing mines. The Department of Natural Resources announced a potentially precedent-setting decision to allow Australian Paladin Energy Ltd. majority ownership of a uranium mine in Newfoundland and Labrador.

The decision could help draw foreign capital into uranium projects in Saskatchewan, one of the largest producers in the world, said David Talbot, an analyst at Dundee Securities. It may help inc... More →

The Four Mile uranium deposit represents a recent mineral exploration success and furthering knowledge of its geological context will aid the development of regional mineral exploration models. The deposit is located 550 km north of Adelaide and 10 km west of the Beverley uranium mine in the northern Flinders Ranges‚ Lake Frome Plains region. The sandstone-hosted mineralisation occurs as two distinct zones (Four Mile East and Four Mile West) and the total inferred resource is 9.8 Mt at 0.33% U3O8 with an estimated contained

Kristen Moran reports that the uranium price has not yet seen the big rebound market as yet, and as a result some companies are finding it difficult to remain in production. Meanwhile, those that have not reached production status are having a tough time gaining the capital they need to launch projects.

That is what makes the announcement by Peninsula Energy intriguing. Not only has the company decided to move forward with its Lance project in Wyoming, despite the current uranium price, but it also has enough money to bring that project into production. Furthermore, it has secured s... More →

Emily Gosden opines that new small nuclear reactor technology should be built at the site of a former nuclear power station in Wales, a committee of Welsh MPs has said. The Trawsfynydd nuclear plant in Snowdonia National Park has been shut down since 1991 and is undergoing the lengthy process of decommissioning.

In a report, MPs on the Welsh Affairs select committee said the site would make an ideal location to build small modular reactors, dubbed mini-nukes, and urged the Government to designate it as a site for their construction.
