Participants in an IAEA-organized meeting next week will analyse uranium supply-demand scenarios and discuss new developments in uranium geology, exploration, mining and processing, as well as environmental requirements.
All sessions of the 23-27 June International Symposium on Uranium Raw Material for the Nuclear Fuel Cycle: Exploration, Mining, Production, Supply and Demand, Economics and Environmental Issues are open to journalists.
