Uranium 2007

Resources, Production and Demand

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.

Hide / Show Abstract

Uranium exploration in Turkey began in 1956-1957 and was directed towards the discovery of vein type deposits in crystalline terrain, such as acidic igneous and metamorphic rocks. As a result of these activities, some pitchblend mineralisations were found but they did not form economic deposits.
