Fletcher Newton, Chief Executive of Cameco Corp subsidiary Power Resources, debunked U.S. utility expectations of an overwhelming supply of uranium from Kazakhstan to fuel the nation’s 103 reactors in the near future. In a presentation at the Platts Nuclear Fuel Strategies conference in Washington, D.C. this past week, Newton announced, “There is lots of uranium out there, but getting it will be a challenge.”

Newton cited infrastructure problems, such as building roads and providing sufficient electricity for uranium mining and processing, and anticipated some delays. He told the audience, “To mine 100 metric tons of uranium will require 40 million kilograms of sulphuric acid.” He explained this annually amounted to 2200 truckloads of sulphuric acid – about six truckloads per day. Newton also cited the recent Kazak phenomenon of traffic jams and cited a traffic accident which resulted in a fatality – an unusual development for this mainly agrarian nation. The country will need to build “several sulphuric acid” plants, Newton remarked, to provide this much acid to mine uranium in Kazakhstan using the in situ leach method. He speculated whether Cameco , France’s Areva or Kazakhstan’s KazAtomProm would build those plants.

Still, the country’s uranium supply is plentiful. Newton noted head grades – the initial uranium grades at the start of the uranium mining process – were more than double of those found at Cameco’s in situ recovery uranium operations in the United States. Asked about the projections Kazakhstan officials have made about the country’s uranium production, Newton responded that some like to think “big thoughts.” Newton observed that being in Kazakhstan was like stepping back into the eighteenth or nineteenth century.
