Sarasota, FL, United States, 2007/03/10 - According to one industry expert, the world’s third largest uranium producer could lose up to four million pounds of anticipated production during 2007 because of a recent cyclone in Australia’s Northern Territories. Current value of US$340 million.
The world’s third largest uranium producer, Energy Resources of Australia (ERA), could lose as much as four million pounds of production in 2007 as a result of recent cyclone and flooding damage, according to industry expert Dr. Gene Clark, chief executive of TradeTech. Dr. Clark evaluated photos of flooding at Ranger Pit 3 after ERA announced a ‘force majeure’ on its uranium sales contracts on March 5th. TradeTech publishes the weekly spot uranium price on Fridays through the nuclear industry trade magazine, Nuclear Market Review.
The loss of production could represent as much as four percent of the world’s uranium mining production in 2007, further pressuring the tight supply situation global nuclear utilities face. At the recent spot uranium price, the production loss has a current value of US$340 million.
