Boss Energy: Multi-mine Uranium Producer in Australia and the US


Australian uranium producer Boss Energy (ASX:BOE) has two projects – the 100 percent-owned Honeymoon uranium project in South Australia and the 30 percent-owned Alta Mesa project in the US.

The macro-environment and steps taken by the US government remain favorable for uranium producers such as Boss Energy. The US Congress recently enacted legislation prohibiting the importation of Russian uranium products known as the Prohibiting Russian Uranium Imports Act (HR 1042), valid until 2040.

Boss Energy Honeymoon ISR & IX Mine

The Honeymoon uranium project in South Australia spans approximately 80 kms northwest of Broken Hill. The project is home to the historical Honeymoon uranium mine, Australia's second operating in-situ recovery uranium mine. It began production in 2011 under the previous ownership of Uranium One. Operations at Honeymoon were halted in November 2013 due to declining uranium prices. Subsequently, Boss Energy acquired the project in 2015. The company has since restarted the mine, with the first drum of uranium produced in April 2024.

Company Highlights

  • Boss Energy is an Australia-based uranium producer focused on its two key projects – the 100 percent owned Honeymoon Uranium Project in South Australia and the 30 percent owned Alta Mesa Project in the US.
  • In June 2024 Boss became a multi-mine uranium producer through the Honeymoon and Alta Mesa Projects.
  • The Honeymoon uranium mine commenced production in April 2024, with the first sale of uranium expected in July 2024.
  • Annual production at Honeymoon is forecast to reach 2.45 Mlbs of U3O8.
  • The Alta Mesa uranium mine commenced production in June 2024, with first sale of uranium expected in October 2024.
  • Annual production at Alta Mesa is forecast to reach 1.50 Mlbs of U3O8. Once steady-state operations are established, Boss’s 30 percent share of the production amounts to 500,000 lbs per year.
  • Uranium prices have been the highest since 2008 at over US$80/lb. Prices are expected to remain strong due to the tightness of the uranium supply/demand balance. The company’s first production is timed with strong market fundamentals.
  • The company has signed two sales agreements to supply 1.8 million pounds of U3O8 to leading power utilities in Europe and the US, spanning eight years from 2024 to 2032. The company plans to pursue additional agreements as the price of uranium increases.

Uranium Stocks Surge as Kazakhstan Raises Mineral Extraction Tax

Kazakhstan's announcement of a significant increase in the Mineral Extraction Tax (MET) for uranium sent uranium stocks trending higher on July 10 as concerns of a potential supply disruption grew due to Kazakhstan's position as the world’s largest uranium-producing country.

The new tax rate changes will come in two waves. The first, effective January 1, 2025, will impose an initial hike from the current 6 percent to 9 percent.

Starting in 2026, they will take on a more complex and differentiated rate structure, structured to vary based on production volumes and the price of natural uranium concentrate (U3O8).

For production volumes up to 500 metric tons, the rate will be 4 percent, increasing incrementally to a maximum of 18 percent for volumes exceeding 4,000 metric tons.

Indigo Acquires Hot Uranium Property in Wyoming

Indigo Exploration (TSXV:IXI) has announced the acquisition of a 100 percent interest in the Hot property, a uranium project located in the Shirley Basin of Wyoming, US.

“Gaining 100 percent interest in a project of this calibre, located in a key uranium district next to past production and some of the preeminent US-focused uranium producers and developers, and with extensive historical drill results, is an exciting new development for the Company,” Indigo’s President and CEO Paul Cowley commented in the company's press release.

The Hot property covers 71 unpatented mineral claims over a 5.75 square kilometer area and has been the site of extensive historical exploration since the 1960s.

Wyoming is historically the largest uranium-producing state in the US and has the greatest uranium ore reserves. The Shirley Basin produced over 51 million pounds of U3O8 from 1960 to 1992 at an average grade of 0.22 percent U3O8. However, depressed uranium prices in the late 1900s led to many mines in the region shuttering. The resurgence in uranium prices in recent years has brought interest back to the region as companies look to restart operations, develop uranium deposits or make new discoveries.

Global Uranium Mining Market Expected to Reach $11.38 Billion By 2030 as Dependency on Nuclear Power Increases

FinancialNewsMedia.com News Commentary - In line with the rise of nuclear energy since the 1950's, uranium has become a pivotal commodity. This is especially true for countries that are highly dependent on nuclear energy to fulfill their domestic energy needs. According to a report from Statista, that the leading consumers of uranium worldwide are the countries with the highest share of nuclear energy: the United States, China, and France. The U.S. used nearly 18,300 metric tons of uranium in 2020. That was more than twice as much as France, which ranked third. Although there are global tendencies towards alternative energies, the worldwide nuclear energy consumption has remained consistent over the past decade. This suggests that uranium will likely continue to be an important commodity for decades to come. A report from GlobalData added that Uranium production is expected to grow marginally at a CAGR of more than 4% from 2024 to 2030 and that the countries holding significant uranium reserves are Australia, Kazakhstan, Canada, Russia, and Namibia among others. In 2023, Australia had the largest share followed by Kazakhstan. In terms of uranium production, Kazakhstan led the market followed by Canada. Active Mining Companies in the news includes: Indigo Exploration Inc. (OTCQB: IXIXF) (TSX-V: IXI), Ur-Energy Inc. (NYSE American: URG) (TSX: URE), Cameco Corporation (NYSE: CCJ) (TSX: CCO), Denison Mines Corp. (NYSE American: DNN), Uranium Energy Corp (NYSE American: UEC).
