This publication is a comprehensive contemporary ‘one stop’ summary and reference volume for world uranium geology and resources allowing insight into potential future uranium discoveries and supply. This is based upon, and updated from, the International Uranium Resource Evaluation Project (IUREP) undertaken by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and the Nuclear Energy Agency, Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD-NEA) with supporting data from 27 editions of the joint OECD-NEA/IAEA ‘Red Book’. For the sake of completeness, this publication also includes a review and comparison of the various outputs of the original IUREP project with new data visualisation incorporating previously difficult to access information, as well as 15 global maps of different uranium deposit types as a separate Annex for download.
