Uranium 2007

Resources, Production and Demand

image of Uranium 2007
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.

Until 1962 there had never been any exploration specifically for uranium in Colombia; only some isolated data from some very preliminary studies. After that date the former Institute for Nuclear Affairs (Instituto de Asuntos Nucleares, IAN) began to take an interest and carried out field studies. Companies and agencies, such as Agip, Enusa, Total, Minatome, Cogema, IAEA and Coluranio surveyed part of the Andes and some sectors of the Guyana shield. The result of this phase was that some anomalies were discovered in sites such as Santa Elena (Norte de Santander Department), Berlín (Caldas Department), Zapatota, California, San Celestino and Contratación (Santander Department).
