URANIUM SPOT PRICES ARE SURGING!
Uranium spot prices are on a tear! Prices are up over 80% in the last 12 months with the price at $92 USD per pound as of the end of mid-January 2024. What is behind the rise in uranium prices?
Cameco Corporation (US ticker code CCJ), a major producer of uranium, attributes the rise to supply constraints. CCJ cut its production forecast from 18 million pounds of uranium concentrate to 16.3 million pounds. Further compounding issues are the war in Ukraine impacting uranium mining in Russia. The unrest in Niger has also affected supply–Niger is the 6th largest world producer of uranium.
A further factor impacting the spot uranium price is demand from countries considering nuclear to achieve energy security. One recent example was news of France committing to build 6 new nuclear reactors by 2050.
