Reuters reported that Botswana could be getting its first uranium mine now that Australian-based A-Cap Resources (ASX:ACB) has applied for a licence at a 261 million pound deposit there.
As quoted in the market news:

Botswana is estimated to hold around 1.04 billion tonnes in uranium reserves, in the central part of the country, and the government has issued prospecting licenses in the last decade although no production has taken place.
The exploration firm said results of technical studies showed the project would produce up to 3.75 million pounds of the ore in the first five years of its projected 18-year life.
The project was ideally located near roads, a railway network and power supply, the company said a statement, and was also on the site of one of the largest uranium deposits in the Africa, with estimated deposits of 261 million pounds.
A resurgent uranium price meant the project, where explorations started in 2006, was viable, the firm said.
