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:

On 3 November 2007, there will have been 60 years since the foundation of Kirovgeology – an organisation which now conducts all surveys and exploration for uranium in Ukraine. But prospecting for uranium in Ukraine began in 1944 as a revision of works performed by wells drilled before and mine workings produced in the North Krivoy Rog ore area. The Pervomayskoye and Zheltorechenskoye uranium deposits, which were discovered as a result of these works, were mined out in 1967 and 1989 respectively.
