Based on official information received from 40 countries, Uranium 2007 provides a comprehensive review of world uranium supply and demand as of 1st January 2007, as well as data on global uranium exploration, resources, production and reactor-related requirements. It provides substantive new information from major uranium production centres in Africa, Australia, Central Asia, Eastern Europe and North America. Projections of nuclear generating capacity and reactor-related uranium requirements through 2030 are also featured, along with an analysis of long-term uranium supply and demand issues. It finds that with rising demand and declining inventories, uranium prices have increased dramatically in recent years. As a result, the uranium industry is undergoing a significant revival, bringing to an end a period of over 20 years of underinvestment.Click to Access:

Before the 1990s, China’s uranium resource exploration activities were mainly carried out on hydrothermal related granite type and volcanic type uranium deposits in Jiangxi, Hunan, Guangdong Provinces and Guangxi Autonomous Region in southern China. With decades of exploration, the Bureau of Geology (BOG), China National Nuclear Corporation (CNNC) has been successful in discovering some significant uranium deposits such as the Xiangshan, Xiazhuang ore-fields and Chengxian deposit in the southern China fold belt. These deposits mainly occur in intermediate to acid magmatic rocks such as granitoid and volcanic rocks.
