Uranium prices are up again. Impact on levelised cost is tiny but this will be good for continued exploration and improved mining.

Uranium world's worst commodity in 2016

Quote:
No major commodity had a worse 2016 than uranium. In fact, the element used to make nuclear fuel has had a pretty dismal decade. Prices tumbled 41 per cent last year, touching a 12-year low below $US18 a pound in November, according to Ux Consulting, which compiles market data.

We''l just have to make up for the low prices with volume. Right?

I was quite amazed by the news that a new uranium mine will be opened in western Europe this year or next year, the so-called Salamanca uranium project, near the Spanish-Portuguese border:

The last uranium mine in western Europe closed in the beginning of this century, in the Limousin region of France, if my information is correct. The French even built a museum as remembrance:

Perhaps the mine can be reopened and the museum be closed, if uranium prices climb again, one day....

To encourage nuclear energy, we should perhaps standardise the fuel to three types of pins.
A. Natural uranium
B. 20% LEU
C. Thorium
Fuel for any reactor could be assembled from these.
If the plutonium is later recovered from reprocessing widely, it could replace 20% LEU.
