Telluride Daily Planet reports on the uranium sector and will it be the fuel of the future.

America is just pulling out of its worst recession since the Great Depression, and that’s put a damper on just about everything, from real estate to designer shoes. So it’s no surprise that uranium is down.

But, on the other hand, a Canadian company is asking for a permit to mine uranium in Weld County. And several industry groups predict a sharp rise in uranium in the near future.

Sanderson sees it differently: “It’s definitely the fuel of the future.”
