The time for uranium has come


One of the most important raw materials at present is likely to be uranium, as the expansion of nuclear energy is progressing in many countries.

For a long time, the price of uranium bobbed along at a low level, with a price of 20 to 25 U.S. dollars per pound for many years. Currently, a pound of uranium costs about 58 U.S. dollars. The peak was around 150 U.S. dollars in 2007, and production costs are around 50 U.S. dollars per pound of uranium. And now the price is rising, good for the uranium companies. Supply is tight, and will probably fall even further, so that by the end of the year it may be necessary to pay considerably more than 60 U.S. dollars. Decarbonization is a big issue. Security of supply is also questionable, with about 40 percent of uranium coming from Kazakhstan. The fact that the trend toward decarbonization will continue and may even intensify can be seen in the fact that it is one of the sustainable energy sources for the European Union. Research is also being conducted on waste-free nuclear energy, financed by the EU.

The long period of low prices for uranium has led to a huge slump in research and production. For a long time, there was hardly any investment in uranium, but today the picture has changed. New power plants are under construction or being planned around the world. Moreover, the uranium market is a tight one. After all, around 70 percent of production is in the hands of just five major producers. The many new nuclear power plants that will come on stream in the coming years, especially in Asia, will require large quantities of uranium. Companies such as Uranium Energy and Consolidated Uranium are being considered for the supply of uranium.

In Canada and the USA, Uranium Energy – https://www.commodity-tv.com/ondemand/companies/profil/uranium-energy-corp/ – owns uranium projects, some of which are ready for operation, as well as a stake in the only royalty company in the uranium sector. The company has just expanded its portfolio with a third acquisition in the Athabasca Basin in Saskatchewan in the last twelve months.

Consolidated Uranium – https://www.commodity-tv.com/ondemand/companies/profil/consolidated-uranium-inc/ – owns the uranium in its projects in Australia, Argentina, Canada and the United States. Previously producing uranium and vanadium mines are located in Utah and Colorado.
