Electricity generated from nuclear energy is part of the energy mix. How much uranium is needed to feed the world nuclear reactors and where to find uranium ore at a competitive cost remain the challenge for the utilities and the mining industry. For the last 70 years, uranium enrichment has been and is still the most important phase in the uranium cycle. In situ uranium recovery (ISR) has been developed recently in most of the continent with different recovery results.
