The USA is reviving its uranium mining, though a lmost all the uranium used in US commercial reactors is imported. A new centrifuge enrichment plant is now operating to replace very old and inefficient capacity. Implementation of national policy on high-level waste disposal ...
Neutrons in motion are the starting point for everything that happens in a nuclear reactor. When a neutron passes near to a heavy nucleus, for example uranium-235, the neutron may be captured by the nucleus and this may or may not be followed by fission.
Brazil has two nuclear reactors generating about 3% of its electricity. Construction began on a third reactor in 2010, was suspended in 2015, recommenced in November 2022, but suspended again in April 2023. The country's first commercial nuclear power reactor began operating ...
This report examined the need for Russian secondary supplies from the time of the report until 2013 (which was fairly well known) and the continued need for secondary supplies after the HEU deal expired in 2013.

Niger has two significant uranium mines providing about 5% of world mining output from Africa's highest-grade uranium ores. Niger's first commercial uranium mine began operating in 1971.
Uzbekistan has considerable mineral deposits, including uranium. Today, most uranium is mined in the middle of the country, with Navoi as the centre, linked to mines by railway.  Construction of two large Russian reactors has been proposed.
Life-cycle analysis is useful for comparing net energy yields from different methods of electricity generation. Nuclear power shows up very well as a net provider of energy. External costs, evaluated as part of life-cycle assessment, strongly favour nuclear over coal-fired ge...

Most uranium mining in the USA and Kazakhstan is now by in situ leach methods.  In the USA, ISL is seen as the most cost effective and environmentally acceptable method of mining, and Australian experience supports this.
