The Western Australian Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) said Monday it has completed its assessment of Cameco-Mitsubishi proposed Kintyre uranium mine and recommended state approval for the project, under certain conditions. According to the regulator, Kintyre located in the east Pilbara, near Karlamilyi National Park, can go ahead as far as Cameco monitors close by fauna including bilbies, mulgaras and rock wallabies, and assess any potential radiological impacts to plants and animals.

The project has an expected mine life of about 13.5 years and includes the construction of m... More →

Date Published - January 2007 by J.A. Davis, G.P. Curtis of the U.S. Geological Survey in Menlo Park, CA.

Some mining processes use fluids to dissolve (or leach) a mineral from an ore deposit in the ground. Although these in-situ leach mining techniques are considered more environmentally benign then traditional mining and milling practices they still tend to contaminate the groundwater. For this reason, the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission(NRC) requires licensees to ensure that sufficient funds are maintained by the licensee for restoration of the site to initial conditions follo...

Uranium producer Paladin Energy on Monday reported strong full-year 2014 and fourth-quarter output, meeting its guidance. Paladin, which produces yellowcake from operations in Africa, reported combined output of 7.94 million pounds of uranium oxide, which was down 3.8 percent year-on-year, but met the upper end of the company guidance of between 7.8 million pounds and 8 million pounds.

The Langer Heinrich mine, in Namibia, produced a record 5.592 million pounds of uranium oxide, up 5.7 percent year-on-year, and for the three months ended June, the mine produced 1.3 million pounds of... More →

The Queensland Government has announced that it will recommence uranium mining in Queensland and has established a Uranium Mining Implementation Committee to oversee this process.

Based on known uranium deposits in Queensland, the Department estimates that there are more than 100,000 tonnes of uranium oxide. By comparison, Australia´s exports of uranium in 2011-12 reached a total of 7529 tonnes. Recommencement of uranium mining will contribute to the Queensland Government´s commitment to establish a four-pillar economy. It will strengthen the resources industry... More →

Uranium mining in the USA today is undertaken by few companies on a relatively small scale. Uranium exploration is undertaken by many companies, often going over areas that were mined in the 1950-80s.

Uranium production from one mill (White Mesa, Utah) and five ISL operations totalled 1,583 tU (1,866 t U3O8) in 2006, 1,748 tU (2,061 t U3O8) in 2007, and 1,503 tU (1,774 t U3O8) in 2008.1 In 2008, Rosita became a sixth ISL production site before being shut down.

Uranium was discovered by Martin Klaproth in 1789. He named this new found discovery after Uranus, in honor of the discovery in 1781. Uranium primary use dates back to 79 CE where it was used to add the color yellow to ceramic glazes. During the Middle Ages, pitchblende (uranium oxide) was mined from the Habsburg silver mines in the Czech Republic and was used to color glass. Uranium glassware, also called Vaseline glass, was commercially manufactured starting in the mid-19th century and was very popular through the 1920s. Quality Victorian era and pre-war uranium glass pieces are highly colle... More →

In this presentation, we will be covering a range of topics involving nuclear power. They range from the pros and cons of nuclear power to public concerns, and to exploration, development and production practices and anticipated yellowcake prices.

> We will discuss past and current uranium recovery methods, such as typical in-situ recovery systems practiced in Wyoming and Texas, have a look at typical well-field layouts, drilling, sampling and geophysical logging, both with the old standard logging methods and the new PFN method, which makes radiological equilibrium studies much ...

Sid Maher reports that Australian uranium sales to India could begin soon. The China free-trade agreement negotiations remain on track to be clinched by the end of the year and the Trans-Pacific Partnership deal could be signed by mid-2015. Trade Minister Andrew Robb also said yesterday that the nation had a unique window of opportunity to secure its 200 billion dollar pipeline in infrastructure projects. International companies were looking to Australia for opportunities and the world was awash with cheap money, he said. And with Joe Hockey encouraging the states to sell assets to fund new in...

In situ mining is a process by which uranium is extracted from porous and permeable host sands via wells completed into those sands. Solutions (called lixiviants) are injected into some wells and recovered from others. During mining the lixiviants pass through the host sand from the injection well (point of entry) to the recovery well (point of removal/exit). It dissolves uranium out of the host sand via a chemical reaction involving oxidation. Modern uranium extraction by in situ recovery (ISR) is an environmentally benign process that involves minimal surface disturbance, minimal generation ... More →
