Russia to Triple Uranium Production in Next 2 Years Rosatom

RIA Novosti, PUBLISHED 10.01.2014

Russia will nearly triple its production of natural uranium in the next two years, the head of the countrys state-run nuclear corporation Rosatom said Thursday.

Sergei Kiriyenko said at a meeting with President Vladimir Putin that Russia had in recent years been producing some 3,000-3,200 metric tons of uranium annually.

In 2015, we will reach 8,400 tons [a year], and the prime cost will be completely different, Kiriyenko said.
