Northern Uranium Corp‘s focus has been on discovering a world class uranium deposit at its Northwest Manitoba the project has been inactive since , the Company’s experienced management team continues to expect high grade uranium mineralization to be found within the licenses, should we be able to find a partner that would allow us to move the project forward. URANIUM OCCURS NATURALLY IN THE NORTHERN AREA OF THE STATE. Previous exploration on the Arizona Strip in northern Arizona has resulted in the discovery of eight breccia pipe ore bodies with production in the 's and early 's totaling approximately 19 million pounds of U3O8.

Uranium ore deposits are economically recoverable concentrations of uranium within the Earth's m is one of the more common elements in the Earth's crust, being 40 times more common than silver and times more common than gold. It can be found almost everywhere in rock, soil, rivers, and oceans. The challenge for commercial uranium extraction is to find those areas where the. Latest.

From to , uranium was extracted from placer black sand deposits derived from the Idaho Batholith in southwest Idaho. The deposits were mined for uranium, thorium, and rare earths. Uranium and thorium were in the monazite grains; rare earths were in columbite and euxenite. Production was , pounds ( metric tons) of U 3 O 8. Uranium reserves are reserves of recoverable uranium, regardless of isotope, based on a set market list given here is based on Uranium Resources, Production and Demand, a joint report by the OECD Nuclear Energy Agency and the International Atomic Energy Agency.. Figures are given in metric reserves figures denote identified resources as of 1 January , consisting.

In the U.S. domestic mining industry, the more commonly used unit is pounds (lbs.) uranium oxide (U 3 O 8). For convenience, 1 metric tonne is usually written 1 tonne. International usage reports.
