Palm Beach, FL – April 28, 2022 – FinancialNewsMedia.com News Commentary – Last week, Bank of America released a research note showing that spot prices for uranium had increased significantly in the last couple of months and one big Player, Bank Of America projects that uranium prices will spike more than 50% in 2022, according to a Mining Newswire report. The investment bank expects the mineral to experience further gains in the future as the demand for the use of nuclear energy as an alternative to non-renewable energy sources also grows. Russia plays a central role in the international uranium supply chain, making up over 15% of total uranium supplied this year. In terms of enrichment, Russia makes up roughly 45% of global capacity. In conversion, the Eastern European country makes up nearly 30% of the estimated production of this year and about 20% of international capacity. According to the report: “An analyst at Bank of America, Lawson Winder, stated that the increase in price observed was primarily driven by concern about disruptions in the uranium supply chain. Bank of America added that most of the activity fueling the rise in price was driven by the Sprott Physical Uranium Trust, as opposed to producers or utilities that were actively participating in the market. This is based on a report by UxC, an industry consultancy firm.” Active companies in the markets today include: BASIN URANIUM CORP. (OTCPK: BURCF) (CSE: NCLR), Denison Mines Corp. (NYSE: DNN) (TSX: DML), Centrus Energy Corp (NYSE: LEU), Paladin Energy Ltd (OTCQX: PALAF) (ASX: PDN), Cameco (NYSE: CCJ) (TSX: CCO).
The investment bank explained that the Sprott Physical Uranium Trust was currently the largest fund holding actual uranium instead of futures contracts. Earlier in March, the price of uranium hit a new record, its highest figure in more than a decade. This substantial increase is believed to have been prompted by reports that the Biden administration was in talks to gauge the impact of imposing possible sanctions with concerns to Eastern Europe conditions and how that would affect America’s nuclear industry.

In other news and developments of note in the markets this week:
Centrus Energy Corp (NYSE-American: LEU) President and CEO Daniel B. Poneman recently congratulated Clean Core Thorium Energy and Texas A&M on successfully fabricating the first sample pellets of a next-generation nuclear fuel called ANEEL (Advanced Nuclear Energy for Enriched Life). Centrus and Clean Core have been working together under a memorandum of understanding (MOU) signed earlier this year to promote Clean Core’s advanced nuclear fuel, which will combine thorium with High-Assay, Low-Enriched Uranium (HALEU) produced by Centrus.
Based on more than 15 years of research and design, the new HALEU-Thorium ANEEL fuel is suitable for new and existing CANDU and other Pressurized Heavy Water Reactors (PHWRs). ANEEL can reduce the amount of waste produced in CANDUs/PHWRs by more than 80 percent, minimizing waste management costs and safety concerns, while offering nonproliferation benefits.
