Mining Weekly reports the revival of nuclear energy as well as the future of uranium mining.

The Nuclear Energy Agency (NEA) of the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development has examined the likely future development of nuclear energy worldwide, between now and, initially, 2030, and, latterly, 2050. In each case, the NEA – which must not be confused with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) – has calculated two scenarios, a lower and a higher.

NEA director-general,  Luís Echavarri says:

“By 2030, there will not be a very significant change in the number of NPPs in the world.” “We see a bigger change by 2050. In the lower scenario, by 2050 we’ll go from the 430-plus units in operation today to 600. In the higher scenario, we will go to 1 400.”
