Principles of Uranium Stewardship- “Sustainability must be the guiding principle of global development – requiring worldwide policies that meet the needs and aspirations of the present generation without compromising the opportunity of future generations to fulfil their needs and aspirations”.
Our Finite World
Posted on July 5, 2011- Will uranium supply be adequate for planned nuclear electricity? This question has seen sharply differing views. The purpose of this post is to give an update, showing where we are now.

Uranium Supplies Good For The Long Haul
Researched and written by World Nuclear News
World uranium resources are ample to meet requirements for the foreseeable future but timely investment in facilities will be needed to make sure production keeps pace with growing demand, according to...Learn more>> world-nuclear-news.org
How Much Longer Will World Reserves Of The Nuclear Fuel Uranium Last
by Jan Oliver Lofken for DLR, Berlin, Germany (SPX) Nov 03, 2010
As controversial as nuclear power is, with its still unresolved risks, waste storage problems and high capital costs, it currently meets about 14 percent of global electrical power demand through 430 power stations.
WHERE IS URANIUM FOUND AND HOW IS IT MINED?

Uranium Overview- Uranium is a silvery-white metal, roughly 70% denser than lead and is the only naturally-occurring fissile element on earth. Uranium is more common than tin, about 40 times more common than silver and 500 times more common than gold. It’s found in very low concentrations almost everywhere on earth in soil, rocks, water and even in your own back yard….Learn more>>
Principles of Nuclear Power
Uranium is one of the least plentiful of minerals—making up only two parts per million in the earth’s crust—but because of its radioactivity it is a plentiful supply of energy. One pound of uranium has as much energy as three million pounds of coal…Learn more>> ucsusa.org

Uranium — Where Is It Found?
Uranium is a naturally occurring element that has the highest atomic weight (~238 g/mole) and is slightly radioactive. It can be found in minute quantities in most rocks, soils and waters (normally < 5 ppm), but the real challenge is…Learn more>> geoinfo.nmt.edu
