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.

Nuclear Energy Agency

In the framework of the peaceful uses of nuclear energy, the Government of Egypt had plans, beginning in the 1980s, to implement a nuclear power plant for electric power generation. Other R&D plans also considered the use of nuclear energy for water desalination. All of these plans implied the implementation of uranium exploration programmes. These programmes were undertaken by the Egyptian Nuclear Materials Authority (NMA), which is the government body responsible for nuclear raw materials in the country. In the early phases, these programmes included training NMA teams in exploration and associated relevant tasks. A number of Technical Co-operation (TC) projects and expert missions were executed in collaboration with the IAEA for this purpose.
