InvestorIntel: The vanadium advantage in U3O8’s pathway to uranium production

On June 22nd, 2018 Matthew Bohlsen of InvestorIntel.com published an original column on U3O8 Corp titled The vanadium advantage in U3O8’s pathway to uranium production in which he states, “U3O8 Corp. has a wise strategy that investors can benefit from. That is, they plan to bring on their low CapEx Laguna Salada project first, as this is the easiest to achieve (provided uranium spot prices are above USD 22/lb). Once achieved, they can use surplus cash flow to help fund their larger CapEx low running cost Berlin Project in Colombia. This project has a zero dollar cost of production due to a large amount of valuable by-product credits. This will mean once operational it will be extremely profitable.”

Geophysical Test Work Proves Highly Successful on U3O8 Corp’s Laguna Salada Uranium-Vanadium Deposit

U3O8 Corp reports that geophysical test work showed that electrical tomography (“ET”) proved successful as a means of delineating channels at the base of the gravel layer in its Laguna Salada Deposit (“Deposit” or “Project”) in Argentina. Gravel-filled channels contain generally higher uranium-vanadium grades and this test work proved that ET can be used to detect the location and depth of channels beneath younger cover.

2017: A Key Year for the Argentine Nuclear Industry

In 2017, Argentina committed to the construction of its 4th and 5th large nuclear power plants and is on schedule with refurbishment related with the life-extension and up-rating of the Embalse nuclear plant. Construction of the CAREM 25 small modular reactor (“SMR”) – one of only three SMRs under construction around the world – is reported to be progressing well.

InvestorIntel: A Turning Point in the Nuclear Industry?

2017 was an extraordinary year for the uranium industry: against a backdrop of steadily increasing nuclear energy generation and uranium demand, the world’s largest and lowest-cost producers cut output to essentially eliminate the oversupply that has dogged the uranium market since the Fukushima meltdown almost seven years ago. Underscoring the fact that today’s uranium prices are too low for profitable production, the State-run uranium producer in Kazakhstan, that produces 40% of the world’s uranium and is the world’s lowest-cost producer, has set up a trading arm that will allow its uranium to be sold at higher prices.
