Justin Huhn: Uranium Facing "Supply Black Hole," Price Spike Likely

With aboveground mobile inventory now snapped up by the likes of the Sprott Physical Uranium Trust (TSX:U.U), Justin Huhn, founder and publisher at Uranium Insider, believes the uranium market has reached an inflection point.

"The only inventory that exists right now in the world is strategic — this is held by nuclear utilities, and their inventories historically speaking are relatively low, and by nation states," he said, adding that he sees a "supply black hole" emerging in the mid-term. That could have major consequences for prices moving forward, as well as for uranium equities.

"I honestly think at this point the likelihood of a price spike is very high," he told the Investing News Network in an interview. "It's entirely possible in the next year or two we see a spike, and it comes back down to incentive prices, and then we kind of continue on with the bull market. That's very likely to happen — that's what happened last time."

The TSX30, established in 2019, is an annual ranking of the 30 top-performing stocks over a three-year period ending June 30, 2023 based on share price appreciation.

Global Atomic President and CEO, Stephen G. Roman commented "We are very proud of our Team and the work we have done to advance the Dasa Project since its discovery in 2010. Receiving this acknowledgement from the Toronto Stock Exchange and being included in the TSX30 is a major recognition of all the hard work our Team has accomplished over the past 3 years advancing this world class asset. While more recent share price performance has reflected the uncertainty about the outcome of political issues in Niger , the fundamentals of the Dasa Project continue to improve as we advance our production milestones.  We are confident the Dasa Mine will soon become the highest-grade and lowest-cost uranium mine in Africa . We thank all shareholders who have supported us over the last three years and continued to do so during these recent events."
