All eyes will be on the Uranium Mining Industry as a production shortage should drive Uranium prices up rapidly in the next 9-12 months. This shortage is due to increased construction of nuclear power plants and eight idled plants in Japan coming back on line, with a total of 15 shuttered plants approved for restart. Additionally:
-Kazakhstan (40% of the world's production) has made drastic production cuts.
-Canada (a leading U308 producer) also has made drastic production cuts.
-451 nuclear power plants are in operation in some 30 countries.
-69 nuclear power plants are under construction around the world.
-165 nuclear power plants are planned through 2040.
Our speaker will discuss this recipe for surging U3O8 prices, generating increased mergers and acquisitions activity, and resulting large capital requirements in the uranium mining sector.
