Small Modular Reactors Spark Interest as Nuclear Energy and Uranium Gain Stea​m

As nuclear energy and uranium continue to attract renewed attention from both investors and the general public, technological advances are bringing small modular reactors (SMRs) to the forefront.

SMRs vary in size and power, but are essentially smaller-scale versions of traditional nuclear reactors. Although it's still early days, they've been praised by industry insiders for various reasons, including their size and relative simplicity.

During the latest Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada (PDAC) convention, several uranium companies and expert voices highlighted SMRs as a key component of the market moving forward. They also discussed the moment nuclear energy is having in the eyes of investors, and shared their thoughts on what’s needed to move the industry forward.

Diverse mining stocks are trading at discounted prices, but a new era of resource scarcity could change that.

Speaking to the Investing News Network, Byron King of Paradigm Press said that supply of many metals won't be able to keep up with growing demand. Eventually prices for both commodities and company shares will be squeezed higher.

"When just a little bit of that money that's invested in all these tech-y things and all these biotech-y things and all these other things that buoy the rest of the big market — when just a fraction of that starts to trickle over into the hard asset space, the mining space, you're going to see astonishing rocket rides with many, many companies," he commented.
