Default Australia's Uranium update March 2015 World Nuclear Association

Australia's Uranium

(Updated March 2015)
  • Australia's uranium has been mined since 1954, and three mines are currently operating. More are planned.
  • Australia's known uranium resources are the world's largest ~ 31% of the world total.
  • In 2014 Australia produced 5897 tonnes of U3O8 (5000 tU). It is the world's third-ranking producer, behind Kazakhstan and Canada. All production is exported.
  • Australia uses no nuclear power, but with high reliance on coal any likely carbon constraints on electricity generation will make it a strong possibility.
  • In 2015 the South Australian government set up a royal commission into the potential for nuclear power.
