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.

Since the beginning of uranium exploration in 1944, more than 100 uranium deposits have been discovered within 14 districts in the Russian Federation. These deposits can be classified into three major groups: the Streltsovstk district, which includes 19 volcanic caldera-related deposits where the mining of some deposits is ongoing, the Transural and Vitim districts where sandstone basal-channel type deposits are developed for uranium production by ISL mining and other uranium bearing districts containing numerous deposits of vein, volcanic and metasomatite types higher cost uranium resources that are planned to be mined.
