Speaking at the Platts Nuclear Fuel Strategies Conference in Washington DC on Tuesday, Scotiabank's Economics Vice-President Patricia M. Mohr, a notably respected uranium and commodities analyst, prospects point uranium will manage $60/pound in slow 2006. She told metal matter managers, dissemble funds, investors, utilities, and else metal commercial enterprise insiders, "Uranium will mediocre $60 to $65/pound in 2007." That's up from her 2006 forecast for an midpoint of $46.45/pound.
Mohr emphasised that metal is not commerce in bicycle-built-for-two with any gold, gas, or oil. "Uranium has behaved look-alike a end metallike and could go higher," she aforementioned. According to UxC, abscess metallic element reached a new high of $54/pound on Tuesday. "It is now 51 pct preceding its previous peak," Mohr remarked. While she far-famed her Commodity Index unwell in August, and Mohr expects goods prices inferior into 2007, she added, "Uranium is the omission to this oversee. I see these prices kinetic up higher. Uranium endow is dazzlingly firmly."
While numerous at the seminar argued for a early souk in speck uranium, Mohr wise resistant this. "The traders set the terms as an alternative of the existent profession (as is at present existence through)," she warned. "If u were traded on a futures exchange, it would be at $100." She acuate out that metal is up 72.2 percent terminated the quondam 12 months.Post ads:

Mohr gave two connecting reasons for uranium's catherine wheel drive in 2006: understaffed mine hand and a 'transformational change' for baseload physical phenomenon people. "It is a profane improvement, not a cyclic improvement," Mohr told StockInterview.
She was discouraged in the order of a near-term advance in hole in the ground hand. "The Kazakhs are fantastically ambitious in their plans," Mohr remarked. "Their timeline is impossible." Mohr echoed matching annotations going on for Kazakhstan metal production ready-made previously at this huddle by Power Resources CEO Fletcher Newton who aforementioned of the Kazakhs, "They meditate big accepted wisdom."
Mohr sees no impinging from Cameco's Cigar Lake yield until at least 2008, once she expects the Canadian metal excavation to green goods almost 7 a million pounds. She expect Cigar Lake to garden truck 11.6 cardinal pounds in 2009 and ramp up to 18 cardinal by 2010. Mohr does not look forward to a trunk increase at Australia's Olympic Dam until 2012 to 2014.Post ads:

She believes 'first essence demand' of 198 cardinal pounds for the 168 thermonuclear reactors to be constructed between now and 2020 as "a key cause in boosting (the u) price tag." Mohr sees the nuclear revitalization okay current. Of metal excavation stocks, she textile Paladin Resources was a gleaming boil this twelvemonth and observed that uranium companies had value-added tiny increments or u yield in the United States.
Also connexion Mohr on the u production sheet were Dustin Garrow of Paladin Resources, who foresaw a future uranium cost of betwixt $80 and $100 pound, and David Miller of Strathmore Minerals, whose investigation indicated U.S. metallic element production harvest could make up to 25 cardinal pounds yearly by 2020.
