Uploaded on Sep 8, 2009 Roland Burrow worked as a wellfield operator for Uranium Resources, Inc., outside Kingsville a decade ago. He objected to the way things were being run, tried unsuccessfully to get the TNRCC and FBI involved, and was fired. He moved a couple counties over, but now a URI offshoot wants to mine in his backyard, and he's decided to fight.

Let's face it: Humans are pretty messy. Industrial processes like mining and manufacturing are important parts of keeping civilization going, but they all impact the environment. Sometimes that impact is particularly big and messy, leaving behind hazardous waste that can take years or even decades to clean up.

Having your own energy sources is an important weapon in the world economy. Since 2013, the United States has made important foes of fossil-rich opponents like Saudi Arabia important in extracting shale gas and shale oil from its own soil. The price for a barrel of crude oil fell from 100 to less than $50. The Texan shale producers who survived this price tag are the new heroes of the United States. Under president Donald Trump, the shale cowboys are striving to help Europe to become independent. On research in Trumpland. Original title: Schaliecowboys Schale stone was considered worthless by the oil and gas industry in the past. They passed through on their way to expensive oil and gas that lay deeper. Until a small Texan gas company found a way in the late 1990's to win gas from hard-shelled rock. By making deep boreholes in the stone layers of the soil and injecting a large amount of water and chemicals under high pressure, shale gas and shale oil are won. With this method, later known as fracking, the energy market changed forever. In the meantime, one third of gas and oil production in the United States is a shale.And the bid consumer of energy is not only content to be independent, the country is now even an exporter of energy. OPEC, the organization of (other) oil exporting countries, keeps the oil price on the world market as low as possible, to make American production worthless. But for the moment, the oil countries do not get the shale cowboys on their knees. How does this controversial innovation put the world of energy upside down? Because this new offer of cheap energy really gives us more time to bridge the transition to a sustainable world of solar and wind energy. A few years ago, all experts and analysts went out of the Peak Oil Theory. Namely, the fossil reserves in the world were running out. The shale revolution turned this theory into old dirt in just a few years. Fracking technology opens a whole new reservoir of fossil fuels. The election of President Trump was greeted in Texas with joy and also seen as a recognition for what the shale revolution is going to be. And the future is even more rosy: recent geological research showed that hundreds of billions of dollars of shale oil are still in the so-called Wolf Camp Shale Field in West Texas. Who are the people behind this shale revolution? A portrait of the pioneers and the new Shale millionaires in Texas. Daniel Yergin (energy specialist and author of The Prize and The Quest), Dan Steward, Kent Bowker and Nick Steinsberger (Shale Gas Revolution Geologists and Pioneers), Matt Miller (Dallas Gray Gray Energy Partners), Doug Shanda (Head of Operations Cheniere Energy in Port Arthur), Tommy Taylor (Director of Fasken Oil & Ranch from Midland Texas).

https://store.der.org/crying-earth-rise-up-p1005.aspx Suree Towfighnia 57 min, 2015 Crying Earth Rise Up tells the story of Debra White Plume and Elisha Yellow Thunder’s parallel search for answers to the question: Why are there high levels of radiation in our drinking water and how can we protect our families and community against this threat? White Plume, a Lakota elder, views nearby uranium mining operations as one source of water contamination and as an encroachment on the water rights of the Lakota Nation. She takes action as the lead plaintiff in a case challenging uranium mining on tribal land, and as an organizer working to motivate her community to protect treaty territory from exploitation of their natural resources by corporate interests. Yellow Thunder seeks answers in the earth itself. During her pregnancy, she unknowingly drank contaminated water and her daughter, Laila, was born with severe medical anomalies. Laila and family await a kidney transplant. When Yellow Thunder can take time away from caring for Laila, she maps ore outcroppings on the Pine Ridge Reservation in search of uranium and the origins of the contamination. Meanwhile, community members from the mining town of Crawford, NE, Lakota health and environmental agencies, an organic rancher and project manager of a proposed uranium mine, lawyers involved in White Plume’s case, natural resources officials, a nuclear energy expert, farmers and ranchers, all grapple with the prospect of license renewal at the Crow Butte mine in Nebraska and the proposed expansion of mining operations to three additional mines in northwest Nebraska and western South Dakota. Observational footage, ruggedly beautiful Great Plains vistas, sit-down interviews, illustrations, and animated graphics combine to address the controversy surrounding the existing and proposed uranium mining operations over the High Plains/Ogallala aquifer. Native actress Tantoo Cardinal narrates the film, supporting its structure, ensuring clarity and acting as a reliable guide for the audience through the story. The film addresses the direct relationship between water and life itself, and the tragic irony that what is sacred may also be poisoning, even as nuclear power companies insist on the environmental safety of their industry’s practices and townspeople point to the mine’s essential role in fueling the local economy. Through characters who oppose and support the expansion of uranium mining over the High Plains/Ogallala aquifer (the largest fresh water underground source in North America), audiences engage with the important and timely issue of preserving and protecting the land and water. Native communities are commonly involved in debates about land use and environmental stewardship, particularly in the west, because of the historical exploitation of natural resources found on treaty land, Native religious beliefs that bind the people to nature, the Native philosophy of “seven generations” that mirrors the concept of sustainable ecological practices, etc. Crying Earth Rise Up acknowledges the centrality of Native involvement in opposing the particular practice of uranium mining and suggests Native communities’ wider spread contribution to a variety of other conversations related to environmental protection (although not always noted by mainstream media, e.g. the recent blocking of the TransCanada Keystone XL Pipeline).

Amir Adnani, the founder and Chairman of Brazil Resources and CEO of Uranium Energy Corp joins us to discuss everything from the real world costs of mining one ounce of physical gold, to the HUI hitting new lows while major stock market indexes soar to new highs. It's been a multi-year bloodletting for anyone who owns mining stocks, and with Brazil Resources (Full Disclosure: I own none) back down near its IPO price, we wanted Amir's take on the beaten down, unloved precious metals mining sector -- a contrarian play if ever there was one. Adnani says, 'The cycles are necessary and create opportunities... we need these down periods because these are the windows where you can substantially grow your company, you can acquire assets for cents on the dollar." Regarding the current prices of silver and gold being below the costs of production for many miners, even as every government on earth is printing fiat currency as fast as possible, Adnani says, "This is the disconnect, almost of a lifetime... and again it creates incredible opportunities, and you have to do something with it." As for uranium and the nuclear power sector, I ask Amir the tough questions about Fukushima. Can nuclear power generation really ever be safe? Given the absolute environmental catastrophe caused by the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, what is the future of nuclear power, a major energy source for the world? Adnani answers the tough questions and shares his insights candidly in this nearly 40-minute long interview.

The Largest Power Plant Of The World - Geographic History. The world's first power station was designed and built by Lord Armstrong at Cragside, England in 1868. Water from one of the lakes was used to power Siemens dynamos. The electricity supplied power to lights, heating, produced hot water, ran an elevator as well as labor-saving devices and farm buildings. The first public power station was the Edison Electric Light Station, built in London at 57, Holborn Viaduct, which started operation in January 1882. This was a project of Thomas Edison that was organized and managed by his partner, Edward Johnson. A Babcock and Wilcox boiler powered a 125-horsepower steam engine that drove a 27-ton generator called "Jumbo", after the celebrated elephant. This supplied electricity to premises in the area that could be reached through the culverts of the viaduct without digging up the road, which was the monopoly of the gas companies. The customers included the City Temple and the Old Bailey. Another important customer was the Telegraph Office of the General Post Office, but this could not be reached though the culverts. Johnson arranged for the supply cable to be run overhead, via Holborn Tavern and Newgate. Read More: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Power_station

Uranium Resources (NASDAQ:URRE) announced it began exploratory drilling on the 54,847 acres in Kenedy County, Texas, called the Los Finados Project. Don Ewigleben, President and CEO of URI, commented, "The Los Finados project allows URI to explore for uranium in one of the largest contiguous untested land blocks in the prolific south Texas uranium district. URI's water sampling results from our earlier testing, our analysis of local geologic trends, and the history of uranium production in the district suggest that the Los Finados property is highly prospective for the occurrence of one or more uranium deposits that can be produced by commercially viable ISR technology. Our three phase exploratory drilling will confirm what, if any, resources are present on this particular parcel in the district." Uranium Resources is currently below its 50-day moving average (MA) of $1.71 and below its 200-day MA of $2.21.

This is the video I took last Friday night at TGIFriday's in striking up a casual conversation with an industry guy who has worked with Schlumberger and other companies. After I turned off the camera, he told me of a sleep deprived episode where the uranium tool came out of the ground and he was looking at a "radiating in the open air" event...he said as long as the tool is in the ground, that the uranium is "contained". He agreed with me on his dislike for Chesapeake...he also informed me that Arlington has at least 7 housed Compressor Stations hidden nicely away in Walmart looking buildings. He was impressed with how much sound and aesthetics was important to Arlington (Gasland) Texas for those Compressor Stations. In asking him about our dry gas, he said it was not so dry at around 1,100 btu which means there are other hydrocarbons present that are heavier than methane.

Originally a public domain film from the National Archives, slightly cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and one-pass brightness-contrast-color correction & mild video noise reduction applied. The soundtrack was also processed with volume normalization, noise reduction, clipping reduction, and/or equalization (the resulting sound, though not perfect, is far less noisy than the original). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_petroleum Wikipedia license: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ ...More than four thousand years ago, according to Herodotus and confirmed by Diodorus Siculus, asphalt was employed in the construction of the walls and towers of Babylon; there were oil pits near Ardericca (near Babylon), and a pitch spring on Zacynthus ( Ionian islands, Greece ). Great quantities of it were found on the banks of the river Issus, one of the tributaries of the Euphrates. Ancient Persian tablets indicate the medicinal and lighting uses of petroleum in the upper levels of their society. Oil was exploited in the Roman province of Dacia, now in Romania, where it was called picula. The earliest known oil wells were drilled in China in 347 AD or earlier. They had depths of up to about 800 feet (240 m) and were drilled using bits attached to bamboo poles. The oil was burned to evaporate brine and produce salt... The first streets of Baghdad were paved with tar, derived from petroleum that became accessible from natural fields in the region. In the 9th century, oil fields were exploited in the area around modern Baku, Azerbaijan... The modern history of petroleum began in the 19th century with the refining of kerosene from crude oil. Although the Russian Dubinin brothers had purified kerosene directly from petroleum in their factory in 1823, and the process of refining kerosene from coal was discovered by Nova Scotian Abraham Pineo Gesner in 1846, it was only after Ignacy Łukasiewicz had improved Gesner's method to develop a means of refining kerosene from the more readily available "rock oil" ("petr-oleum") seeps, in 1852, that the first rock oil mine was built in Bóbrka, near Krosno in central European Galicia (Poland/Ukraine) in 1853. In 1854, Benjamin Silliman, a science professor at Yale University in New Haven, was the first person to fractionate petroleum by distillation. These discoveries rapidly spread around the world, and Meerzoeff built the first modern Russian refinery in the mature oil fields at Baku in 1861. At that time Baku produced about 90% of the world's oil... The first oil well in North America was in Oil Springs, Ontario, Canada in 1858, dug by James Miller Williams. The US petroleum industry began with Edwin Drake's drilling of a 69-foot (21 m) oil well in 1859, on Oil Creek near Titusville, Pennsylvania, for the Seneca Oil Company... Until the mid-1950s coal was still the world's foremost fuel, but after this time oil quickly took over... Today, about 90% of vehicular fuel needs are met by oil. Petroleum also makes up 40% of total energy consumption in the United States, but is responsible for only 2% of electricity generation... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spindletop Spindletop is a salt dome oil field located in the southern portion of Beaumont, Texas in the United States. The Spindletop dome was derived from the Louann Salt evaporite layer of the Jurassic geologic period. On January 10, 1901, a well at Spindletop struck oil ("came in"). The new oil field soon produced more than 100,000 barrels (16,000 m3) of oil per day. Gulf Oil and Texaco, now part of Chevron Corporation, were formed to develop production at Spindletop. The strike at Spindletop represented a turning point for Texas and the nation. No previously discovered oil field in the world had ever been so productive. The frenzy of oil exploration and the economic development it generated in the state became known as the Texas Oil Boom. The United States soon became the leading oil producer in the world...

The promise of much-needed jobs in Cibola and McKinley counties comes with a history, as a mining company seeks uranium on environmentally and culturally sensitive lands. THE LINE opinion panel discusses the most recent attempts to bring mining and the associated jobs back to the region.
The energy company, Uranium Energy Corporation, has been trying to launch a large-scale mining operation in Goliad, Texas, for quite a while. Because the mining activities could pollute the aquifer that supplies the city's drinking water, the EPA has been rejecting the company's request for an exemption from the federal Safe Drinking Water Act. Then, the company hired high-powered lobbyists Heather Podesta, a well-connected player in Washington who has been called, "the number one person you need to know in Obama's Washington." After she lobbied on behalf of Uranium Energy, the EPA relented, and Uranium Energy is now allowed to mine the Goliad aquifer. The Resident (aka Lori Harfenist) discusses the story.

"When Uranium Energy Corp. sought permission to launch a large-scale mining project in Goliad County, Texas, it seemed as if the Environmental Protection Agency would stand in its way. To get the ore out of the ground, the company needed a permit to pollute a pristine supply of underground drinking water in an area already parched by drought."* The town of Goliad Texas faces drought, and relies on a supply of clean drinking water. Well, thanks to lobbyists, the Environmental Protection Agency changed its mind, and is now allowing Uranium miners to ruin that water supply for the sake of profit. How did this happen?

Uranium Energy chief executive Amir Adnani discusses the group’s fully licensed and developed Hobson processing plant in Texas, which is an important strategic element of the group’s growth plans. Processing and infrastructure is a premium component for uranium business, as availability has typically been limited, he explains. “So we’re definitely in a strong position with Hobson as, really, the heart of what we call our hub and spoke strategy,” he said. Adnani talks about the group’s low cost and environmentally friendly approach to uranium mining, via in-situ recovery methods.

Dance by members of BUMP (ban uranium mining permanently) outside the Australian uranium conference in Fremantle as part of the protest against uranium mining. Several companies are trying to start uranium mining in WA, a state where there is still no uranium mining activity and it should be kept this way. The rally was against uranium mining for various reasons, namely: - Aboriginal people don't want it on their land - It is used for nuclear weapons - The waste stays radioactive for many years after the mining has ceased - Radiation leads to many health problems, some of which are only discovered in future generations. - It causes massive damage to the environment - Australia can meet all it's energy needs with renewable energy, thus discounting any reason to use nuclear power.

The soundtrack was also processed with volume normalization, noise reduction, clipping reduction, and/or equalization (the resulting sound, though not perfect, is far less noisy than the original). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Low-level_waste Wikipedia license: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ Low-level waste (LLW) is nuclear waste that does not fit into the categorical definitions for intermediate-level waste (ILW), high-level waste (HLW), spent nuclear fuel (SNF), transuranic waste (TRU), or certain byproduct materials known as 11e(2) wastes, such as uranium mill tailings. In essence, it is a definition by exclusion, and LLW is that category of radioactive wastes that do not fit into the other categories. If LLW is mixed with hazardous wastes, then it has a special status as mixed low-level waste (MLLW) and must satisfy treatment, storage, and disposal regulations both as LLW and as hazardous waste. While the bulk of LLW is not highly radioactive, the definition of LLW does not include references to its activity, and some LLW may be quite radioactive, as in the case of radioactive sources used in industry and medicine. LLW includes items that have become contaminated with radioactive material or have become radioactive through exposure to neutron radiation. This waste typically consists of contaminated protective shoe covers and clothing, wiping rags, mops, filters, reactor water treatment residues, equipments and tools, luminous dials, medical tubes, swabs, injection needles, syringes, and laboratory animal carcasses and tissues. The radioactivity can range from just above background levels found in nature to very highly radioactive in certain cases such as parts from inside the reactor vessel in a nuclear power plant. The definition of low-level waste is set by the nuclear regulators of individual countries, though the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) provides recommendations. Some countries, such as France, specify categories for long-lived low- and intermediate-level waste. U.S. regulations do not define the category of intermediate-level waste... Depending on who "owns" the waste, its handling and disposal is regulated differently. All nuclear facilities, whether they are a utility or a disposal site, have to comply with Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) regulations. The four low-level waste facilities in the U.S. are Barnwell, South Carolina; Richland, Washington; Clive, Utah; and as of June 2013, Andrews County, Texas. The Barnwell and the Clive locations are operated by EnergySolutions, the Richland location is operated by U.S. Ecology, and the Andrews County location is operated by Waste Control Specialists. Barnwell, Richland, and Andrews County accept Classes A through C of low-level waste, whereas Clive only accepts Class A LLW. The DOE has dozens of LLW sites under management. The largest of these exist at DOE Reservations around the country (e.g. the Hanford Reservation, Savannah River Site, Nevada Test Site, Los Alamos National Laboratory, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Idaho National Laboratory, to name the most significant). Classes of wastes are detailed in 10 C.F.R. § 61.55 Waste Classification enforced by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, reproduced in the table below. These are not all the isotopes disposed of at these facilities, just the ones that are of most concern for the long-term monitoring of the sites.

Seawater contains more than 4 billion metric tons of dissolved uranium. This resource, if it proves to be recoverable at a reasonable cost, could provide an essentially unlimited source of supply and serve as an economic ‘backstop’ to the uranium price. In this October seminar hosted by the MIT Energy Initiative, Erich Schneider of The University of Texas at Austin reviewed progress toward practical, large scale recovery of seawater uranium by U.S. laboratories and universities. Notable achievements included polymeric adsorbents containing amidoxime ligands developed at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) which have demonstrated marked improvements in uranium uptake over previous technologies. A key component of this novel technology lies in the unique high surface-area polyethylene fibers that considerably increase the surface area and thus the grafting yield of functional groups without compromising its mechanical properties. In his talk, Schneider also addressed novel maritime deployment strategies which offer the potential to greatly reduce the cost and energy use associated with deploying the adsorbents at sea. Cost analyses guide the technology development and highlight parameters, such as capacity, recyclability, and stability, which have the largest impact on the cost of extraction of uranium from seawater. This talk was presented on October 13, 2015 as part of the IHS Markit Seminar Series. About the speaker: Erich Schneider earned his Ph.D. from Cornell University in 2002. He joined the faculty of The University of Texas at Austin in 2006 and is presently Associate Professor and Coordinator of the Nuclear Radiation Engineering Program. Prior to joining the UT-Austin faculty, he was a staff scientist at Los Alamos National Laboratory. Schneider plays a leading role in the US research program focusing on recovery of uranium from seawater. His role in this program, which involves four national laboratories and ten academic institutions, is to lead its cost and system analysis effort. In connection with this work, he serves as a US representative on the United States - Japan Joint Nuclear Energy Action Plan Fuel Cycle Technology Working Group. Schneider is responsible for developing and updating the long-term uranium production cost forecast used by the Department of Energy Office of Nuclear Energy in its nuclear fuel cycle analyses. He has presented work related to uranium resources to the DOE Nuclear Energy Research Advisory Committee chaired by Burton Richter and the Blue Ribbon Commission on America’s Nuclear Future. ___ The MIT Energy Initiative is MIT’s hub for energy research, education, and outreach.

The world's population is growing, and everything needs electricity including electric vehicles. In the long-term, we can’t satisfy our energy needs just from renewables. Any balanced energy portfolio needs to have nuclear energy exposure. Today there are only ten companies in the world that mine uranium. Nuclear energy is carbon-free, and it takes very little uranium to produce incredible amounts of energy. These are things that drove Amir to get into the uranium business in 2005. Uranium Energy Corp. wants to be a leading producer of uranium in the world. There used to be over 30,000 U.S. jobs mining uranium, but today there are only 400. For any commodity, you want multiple supply sources, and almost all of U.S. uranium is imported. In 2005, Amir looked at the uranium sector, and he realized that a lot of exploration was taking place in Canada but none in the United States. Several companies explored in the mid-2000’s but then abandoned projects due to low prices. Mr. Adnani was introduced to a geologist who had some uranium prospects in southern Texas. Since then they have acquired several leases and projects in Texas. In 2015 the U.S. Geological Survey came out with a study showing that there is a large potential for uranium in Texas. Their thesis has worked out although their mine production is currently on standby due to low prices. They continue to explore and expand their resource base. Texas is a very business and mining friendly jurisdiction due to all of the oil development. Cameco’s recent cuts in production will be beneficial to the market as it should reduce the over-supply. Currently, most mines can’t afford to produce ore at these prices. Prices must rise considerably to encourage the development of new mines. We are still in the early phase of this uranium bull market, and the price will need to rise to at least $60.00. The market is beginning to shift, and the speed of a recovery could surprise.

The uranium market has been in a five-year bear market that shows no signs of bouncing back. But, one junior uranium player says the commodity is set for a strong move up. Kitco News caught up with Amir Adnani, CEO and president of Corpus Christi, Texas-based Uranium Energy (NYSE-MKT: UEC), on the sidelines of the world’s largest mining conference, the Prospectors and Developers Conference (PDAC) in Toronto, which wrapped this week. “The spot price has pulled back over the past few weeks – I think we are set for strong price movement – I think we will see a strong year for uranium,” Adnani added. He is also invested in gold and is the founder of junior exploration company, Brazil Resources (TSX-V: BRI.VN). On the topic of gold, Adnani said it is the “ultimate anti-establishment trade, as Donald Trump is the anti-establishment vote.” Don’t forget to sign up for Kitco News’ Weekly Roundup – comes out every Friday to recap the hottest stories & videos of the week: http://www.kitco.com/newsletter Join the conversation @ The Kitco Forums and be part of the premier online community for precious metals investors: http://kitcomm.com -- Or join the conversation on social media: @KitcoNewsNOW on Twitter: http://twitter.com/kitconews --- Kitco News on Facebook: http://facebook.com/kitconews --- Kitco News on Google+: http://google.com/+kitco --- Kitco News on StockTwits: http://stocktwits.com/kitconews

http://goldstocktrades.com Some very important developments are taking place in the undervalued uranium miners. Paladin signed a long term off-take agreement with a major utility. The company will deliver close to 14 million pounds of uranium and will receive a cash of $200 million by January 2013. This has major implications on this overlooked sector, which is showing signs of a positive reversal higher. Many of our uranium selections are breaking downtrends and should see higher prices as liquidity and capital flows into this undervalued sector with excellent supply-demand fundamentals over the long term.

https://democracynow.org - Last week, immigrant activist Patricia Okoumou climbed the Southwest Key building in Austin, Texas, to protest the company jailing immigrant children. Now a judge in New York will decide whether to revoke her bail from her first arrest, when she climbed the Statue of Liberty on July 4 to protest President Trump’s “zero tolerance” policy. Okoumou was with the group Rise and Resist on July 4 last year as they dropped a banner from the statute that read ”ABOLISH ICE.” She broke away from the group and climbed all the way to Lady Liberty’s left foot, where she continued to protest and refused to leave until she was arrested. She has since pleaded not guilty to trespassing, interference with government agency functions and disorderly conduct. Her sentencing is scheduled for March 19, but prosecutors claim her latest protest was a violation of the terms of her bond, and she has been ordered back to court today. She joins us just hours before her appearance. Democracy Now! is an independent global news hour that airs weekdays on nearly 1,400 TV and radio stations Monday through Friday.

The Mokee Dugway is located on Utah Route 261 just north of Mexican Hat, UT. It was constructed in 1958 by Texas Zinc, a mining company, to transport uranium ore from the "Happy Jack" mine in Fry Canyon, UT. to the processing mill in Mexican Hat. The three miles of unpaved, but well graded, switchbacks descend 1100 feet from the top of Cedar Mesa. The State of Utah recommends that only vehicles less than 28 feet in length and 10,000 pounds in weight attempt to negotiate this steep (10% grade), narrow and winding road.

Uranium Resources (URRE) says it has completed an agreement to explore 53,500 acres in Kenedy County, Texas, for three years, with an option to lease the acreage for uranium production. The lease would have a primary term of eight years after lease commencement. The lease option agreement requires a minimum exploration obligation of one hundred exploration wells or $1 million investment in the first year, an additional two hundred exploration wells or $1.5 million investment in the second year and, in the third year, an additional two hundred exploration wells or $2 million investment. Investment or drilling in excess of the minimum requirement in any year counts toward the following year's requirements.

http://goldstocktrades.com/blog I have been early in uranium as I expected a bottom many months ago that has still not yet come. However, I am still accumulating despite the negativity. New investors into the sector can get in cheaper than management. For instance, one company in which I recently became a shareholder Uranium Resources (URRE) saw its CEO Chris Jones make a purchase in the market of 7400 shares at $2.42. New investors to the sector can purchase shares at 1/3rd the price. This is a bargain opportunity especially now as they have rolled back their shares and have announced a major merger with near term producer Anatolia Energy. Construction is planned on Anatolia's Temrezli Project. What does Uranium Resources offer Anatolia? The merger could save up to $11 million in start up costs because Uranium Resources already owns a processing plant and has the experienced operational personnel in South Texas with years of experience producing uranium. Now the newly merged company could provide near term cash flow in addition to a long term call option on the uranium price with Uranium Resources extensive portfolio in Texas and New Mexico. As of August 10, 2015 the company has around $5.8 million in cash. The merger could create a much better uranium company listed on the US and Australian exchanges with both near term low cost production and long term leverage on uranium. I believe the nuclear sector is bottoming and expect that following the completion of the merger Uranium Resources should find the funding needed to advance Anatolia's Temrezli to production in Turkey. Turkey has a long history of mining with many major current Western producers. Turkey has 8 nuclear plants under construction and Temrezli is the only advanced uranium asset with a Pre Feasibility showing Uranium cash costs around $30 a pound putting the asset in the lowest quartile in costs. Turkey has stated they want domestic production. The share structure will be tight following the merger with around 50+ million shares outstanding. The cost savings, personnel and synergies of the merger are too great to ignore as I believe the combined entity could fast track low cost uranium production as they will be listed on both the US and Australian Exchanges providing excellent visibility, liquidity and access to mine finance institutions. Recently, Uranium Resources largest shareholder the RCF Fund announced their public support. Disclosure: I recently became a shareholder and Uranium Resources is a website sponsor.

We are living the American dream driving the Historic Route 66 from Chicago to Santa Monica but we are doing some detours to visit some places we like. In this 30th episode, we boondock at Mexican Hat Rock, then visit Goosenecks State Park and drive up the Moki Dugway. Enjoy the ride with us! ;) The name "Mexican Hat" comes from a curiously sombrero-shaped rock outcropping on the northeast edge of town; the rock measures 60-foot (18 m) wide by 12-foot (3.7 m). The "Hat" has two rock climbing routes ascending it. It has frequently been noted on lists of unusual place names. Mexican Hat is a census-designated place (CDP) on the San Juan River on the northern edge of the Navajo Nations borders in south-central San Juan County, Utah, United States. The population was 31 at the 2010 census, a sharp decline from the previous two censuses. The CDP is on U.S. Route 163 just 3 miles (5 km) south of the junction with State Route 261, and is just outside the northern boundary of both the Navajo Nation and Monument Valley. Goosenecks State Park is located just 9 miles (14 km) west. Goosenecks State Park is a state park in the U.S. state of Utah, overlooking a deep meander of the San Juan River. The park is located near the southern border of the state a short distance from Mexican Hat, Utah. Millions of years ago, the Monument Upwarp forced the river to carve incised meanders over 1,000 feet (300 m) deep as the surrounding landscape slowly rose in elevation. Eroded by water, wind, frost, and gravity, this is a classic location for observing incised meanders. Goosenecks State Park is largely undeveloped. Primitive campsites with picnic tables are scattered back from the edge of the cliff, and vault toilets are available. Campers are advised to bring their own water, food, and other necessary gear. There are no developed hiking trails in the park, but the Honaker Trail, a few miles to the northwest, provides access to the San Juan River. (Moki Dugway) State Route 261 is a state highway located entirely within south-central San Juan County, Utah. It runs 34 miles (55 km) north, from the junction of U.S. Route 163 (3 miles (4.8 km) north of Mexican Hat), to the junction with State Route 95, just east of Natural Bridges National Monument. The highway is part of the Utah section of the Trail of the Ancients, a National Scenic Byway. It includes steep switchbacks as it traverses the Moki Dugway. From its southern terminus north of Mexican Hat, SR-261 commences in a westerly direction. After turning north, the route encounters the Moki Dugway, becoming an unpaved road. Following this, the road continues north and terminates at SR-95 west of Blanding. The Moki Dugway was constructed in 1958 by Texas Zinc, a mining company, to transport uranium ore from the "Happy Jack" mine in Fry Canyon to the processing mill in Mexican Hat. The State Road Commission added SR-261 to the state highway system in 1957, following its present alignment from SR-47 (now US-163) north of Mexican Hat to SR-95. Music: L.A.

PAUL ROBINSON (USA) Research director, Southwest Research and Information Centre THE SYMPOSIUM The World Uranium Symposium addressed issues arising from the nuclear fuel chain, from mining uranium to its end-uses and byproducts for civilian or military purposes. Both scientific and community-based, the Symposium was organized around the following themes: health, environment, economy, ethics, governance, human rights and the rights of indigenous peoples. Open to the public, the symposium had hosted more than 300 people per day from 14 to 16 April 2015, and had included local, national and international representatives from the sectors of health, research, industry, education, civil society, policy makers and indigenous communities. local, national and/or international media were present. All presentations of the symposium will be posted in electronic formats (text and / or videos) after the Symposium, in French and / or English. • April 14 (Day 1): Uranium mines and the nuclear life cycle : health and environmental issues • April 15 (Day 2): Civil and military nuclear : ethics, economics and political issues • April 16 (Day 3): Human rights, indigenous peoples' rights and governance issues ORGANIZATIONS INVOLVED The Symposium is jointly organized by Physicians for Global Survival (1985 Nobel Peace Prize), the Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment, Nature Québec, the Canadian Coalition for Nuclear Responsibility and the Coalition pour que le Québec ait meilleure mine. It also receives support from the International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War (Swiss chapter), the First Nations of Quebec and Labrador Sustainable Development Institute, the Cree Nation of Mistissini, MiningWatch Canada, and a number of other local, national and international partners. CONTEXT The Symposium is occurring at a time when many organizations and governments question the future of nuclear power, currently providing about 11% of the world’s electricity. The year 2015 also marks the seventieth anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and the corresponding United Nations negotiations of the Non Proliferation Treaty for the prevention and the abolition of nuclear arms. It will also see the tabling on a new UN treaty on climate change. Canada is one of the largest producers and exporters of uranium worldwide, yet its nuclear energy output is in relative decline. Only two provinces still operate nuclear reactors: Ontario and New Brunswick. While uranium has been primarily mined from Saskatchewan, the provinces of British Columbia and Nova Scotia have officially banned uranium mining. Quebec recently shut down its sole nuclear reactor and has tasked the Bureau d’audiences publiques sur l’environnement (BAPE) with conducting an investigation on issues related to uranium mining. It is expected to release its report by May 20 2015. The Symposium aims to tackle these different issues and to provide recommendations to decision makers to better ensure protection for the human health, global security and a safe environment

This film was produced for the AEC by Atomics International (North American Aviation). Public domain film from the Atomic Energy Commission, slightly cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and one-pass brightness-contrast-color correction & mild video noise reduction applied. The soundtrack was also processed with volume normalization, noise reduction, clipping reduction, and/or equalization (the resulting sound, though not perfect, is far less noisy than the original). http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Systems_for_Nuclear_Auxiliary_Power The Systems Nuclear Auxiliary Power (SNAP) program was a program of experimental radioisotope thermoelectric generators (RTGs) and space nuclear reactors flown during the 1960s by NASA... A series of compact nuclear reactors primarily developed for the U.S. government by the Atomics International division of North American Aviation. SNAP Experimental Reactor (SER) The SNAP Experimental Reactor (SER) was the first reactor to be built by the specifications established for space satellite applications. The SER used uranium zirconium hydride as the fuel and eutectic sodium-potassium alloy (NaK) as the coolant and operated at approximately 50 kW thermal. The system did not have a power conversion but used a secondary heat air blast system to dissipate the heat to the atmosphere. The SER used a similar reactor reflector moderator device as the SNAP-10A but with only one reflector. Criticality was achieved in September 1959 with final shutdown completed in December 1961. The project was considered a success. It gave continued confidence in the development of the SNAP Program and it also led to in depth research and component development. SNAP-2 The SNAP-2 Developmental Reactor was the second SNAP reactor built. This device used Uranium-zirconium hydride fuel and had a design reactor power of 55 kWt. It was the first model to use a flight control assembly and was tested from April 1961 to December 1962. Studies were performed on the reactor, individual components and the support system. The SNAP 2DR used a similar reactor reflector moderator device as the SNAP-10A but with two movable and internal fixed reflectors. The system was designed so that the reactor could be integrated with a mercury Rankine cycle to generate 3.5 kW of electricity. SNAP-8 The SNAP-8 reactors were designed, constructed and operated by Atomics International under contract with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. Two SNAP-8 reactors were produced: The SNAP 8 Experimental Reactor and the SNAP 8 Developmental Reactor. Both SNAP 8 reactors used the same highly enriched uranium zirconium hydride fuel as the SNAP 2 and SNAP 10A reactors. The SNAP 8 design included primary and secondary NaK loops to transfer heat to the mercury rankine power conversion system. The electrical generating system for the SNAP 8 reactors was supplied by Aerojet General. The SNAP 8 Experimental Reactor was a 600 kWt reactor that was tested from 1963 to 1965. The SNAP 8 Developmental Reactor had a reactor core measuring 9.5 by 33 inches (24 by 84 cm), contained a total of 18 pounds (8.2 kg) of fuel, had a power rating of 1 MWt. The reactor was tested in 1969 at the Santa Susana Field Laboratory. SNAP-10A The SNAP-10A was a space-qualified nuclear reactor power system. It was built as a research project for the Air Force, to demonstrate the capability to generate higher power than RTGs. The reactor employed two moveable beryllium reflectors for control, and generated 35 kWt at beginning of life. The system generated electricity by circulating NaK around lead tellurium thermocouples. To mitigate launch hazards, the reactor was never started until it reached a safe orbit. It was launched into earth orbit in April, 1965, and used to power an Agena-D research satellite, built by Lockheed/Martin. The system produced 500W of electrical power during an abbreviated 43-day flight test. The reactor was prematurely shut down by a faulty command receiver. It is predicted to remain in orbit for 4,000 years...

April 15, 2015 — Tracy Weslosky, Editor-in-Chief and Publisher of InvestorIntel speaks to Anthony Marchese, Chairman of Texas Rare Earth Resources Corp. (OTCQX: TRER) about the recent offtake agreement with Areva that Jack Lifton described as a ‘game changer’ in an interview published earlier this week. They also discuss the 'big deal' Texas Rare Earth Resources recently announced with K-Technologies as a strategic partner in a rare earth processing technology and the interview last month with their Advisory Board member Dan McGroarty on CBS ‘60 Minutes’. Tracy Weslosky: Anthony, you've been working so hard. I've known you for a couple of years and you had a lot of big news. Let's start with the AREVA announcement. Can you tell us, from your perspective, what this announcement really means? Anthony Marchese: Well, first of all, we've known of each other, that is AREVA and Texas Rare Earth, for the last four or five years. Dan Gorski, our CEO, has had them down to the site. What people I think don't realize is companies of the magnitude and size of AREVA do not sign these type of agreements unless they've done a significant amount of due diligence. The uranium offtake agreement is, in our opinion, a validation of the project, of the K-tech process, which is what we have been using to extract the uranium. It's a win-win, which frankly those are the best types of deals. Everybody comes out a winner. Tracy Weslosky: Okay. I think I liked Christopher Eccelstone's article about, not only the deal, but he drew our audience's attention to the fact that Dan Gorski is actually quite the uranium expert. Can you just tell us a little bit more about this? I'd like to give Mr. Gorski a few accolades here because he does understand rare earths and he has been involved in uranium. Anthony Marchese: Yes. Well, just to make this concise, Dan is an incredibly talented individual and his background is not just in geology, copper, uranium, but he's also basically a member just as well. It's a rare breed that can combine both metallurgy and geology. I give him a tremendous amount of credit for recognizing opportunities, like AREVA, recognizing opportunities in the metallurgical space, for example, related to our heap leach process. Dan is just a great individual. Tracy Weslosky: I think I'm purposely brining up one of the members of your team so that I can ask you this next question, which has to do with the fact did you not have one of your advisory board members speak to the rare earth market on ‘60 Minutes’ here this last month? Anthony Marchese: Yes, absolutely. Dan McGroarty, who's an advisory board member for the last year, was extensively interviewed by ‘60 Minutes’. We're tremendously proud of it. Obviously ‘60 Minutes’ has policies against mentioning small cap --- microcap names so he was not able to be identified specifically as a Texas Rare Earth advisory board member. I think it speaks to the quality of and knowledge, not just of Dan McGroarty, but of our entire board of directors and advisory board members. As you know, we've added people, like Jack Lifton, one of your writers, who has a worldly perspective on the sector, as well Eric Noyrez, former CEO of Lynas Corp, who was built the largest rare earth facility outside of China. Tracy Weslosky: Obviously, you know, the excellent board members and the caliber of the team you have is a direct credit to what you're actually doing and the benchmarks you're achieving for Texas Rare Earth Resources. Of course, I noticed the big deal you made with K-Technologies for this rare earth processing technology. I don't think that people have really taken notice of it the way…for the rest of the interview, click here Disclaimer: Texas Rare Earth Resources Corp. (OTCQX: TRER) is an advertorial member of InvestorIntel.

Senator Bill Cassidy asked Ernest Moniz United States Secretary of Energy, a bunch of questions about national security involving the Uranium 1, Russia, and a Canadian Company that donated to The Clinton Foundation. Ernest Moniz Said he was unaware of issues involving such Uranium mining rights dealings but he would look into it. April 28 2015 Ernest Jeffrey Moniz (born December 22, 1944) is an American nuclear physicist and the United States Secretary of Energy, serving under U.S. President Barack Obama since May 2013. He has served as the Associate Director for Science in the Office of Science and Technology Policy in the Executive Office of the President of the United States from 1995 to 1997 and in the United States Department of Energy, serving as Under Secretary of Energy, from 1997 to 2001 during the Clinton Administration.

Hanford produced nearly two-thirds of the nation's plutonium from the 1940s to the 1980s, and the Plutonium Finishing Plant was a key part of that mission. Today, the plant is Hanford's most hazardous facility and poses a monumental cleanup challenge to the Department of Energy and contractor CH2M HILL Plateau Remediation Company

The most important thing that happens when a new iPhone comes out is not the release of the phone, but the disassembly of it. The iPhone teardown, undertaken by third-party teams around the world, provides a roadmap for the life of the iPhone X: Is it repairable? Who made the components inside it? The answers to these questions shift stock markets, electronics design, and consumer experience. Every year there’s a race to become the first to tear down the phone, with teams from around the world flying to Australia—where it’s first released—to compete to be the first to look inside the world’s most coveted new phone. Motherboard embedded with iFixit, a California-based company whose primary mission is to make it easier for the average person to disassemble and repair their electronics, for its iPhone X teardown. We went inside iFixit’s office, the “headquarters of the global repair movement, which features a tool laboratory and a parts library with thousands of electronics parts and disassembly tools. Then we went to Sydney, Australia, as iFixit tried to become the first team to tear down the iPhone X.

Fracking explained in five minutes. Fracking is a controversial topic. On the one side the gas drilling companies, on the other citizen opposed to this drilling method. Politicians are also divided on the matter. We try to take a neutral look on fracking. It is relevant for all of us, because of high prices for energy and the danger for our drinking water. This video focuses mostly on the debate currently ongoing in europe. In a lot of european countries there is a public outcry against fracking, espacially in germany. But the facts in this video are relevant to all of us. Short videos, explaining things. For example Evolution, the Universe, Stock Market or controversial topics like Fracking. Because we love science. We would love to interact more with you, our viewers to figure out what topics you want to see. If you have a suggestion for future videos or feedback, drop us a line! :) We're a bunch of Information designers from munich, visit us on facebook or behance to say hi! https://www.facebook.com/Kurzgesagt https://www.behance.net/kurzgesagt Fracking explained: opportunity or danger Help us caption & translate this video! http://www.youtube.com/timedtext_cs_panel?c=UCsXVk37bltHxD1rDPwtNM8Q&tab=2

http://goldstocktrades.com/blog Many investors are catching onto the gold and silver bug which less than a year ago was completely dormant. Investors who bought those stocks when they were ignored may be sitting on large gains already even in the early stages of a bull market. Unlike gold another yellow metal is ignored by the masses but smart investors are wise to the fact that uranium may be one of the best opportunities out there right now. Uranium is the antidote for global warming which may be one of the biggest threats out there right now. Nuclear is the safest, most effective and efficient base load energy source. I'm not alone in this opinion. New York State Governor Cuomo is giving credits to nuclear plants to wean off of fossil fuels. Climate change is a global problem and this is increasing the realization that next generation nuclear is our best option. How do I sense this is beginning to be realized right here in the US? There are five new reactors under construction in Georgia, Tennessee and S. Carolina. Even billionaires such as Microsoft Bill Gates believe in next generation nuclear and the implementation of small modular reactors which are much more affordable then the costly huge forty year old nuclear reactors being used today. What about renewables? I love wind and solar energy but it doesn't have the capabilities to make a considerable change in carbon emissions like nuclear without huge economic repercussions. Even radical environmentalists who once opposed nuclear are now turning more positive as they realize that just looking at wind and solar is not a viable option. Right now we may be in a bust for the US nuclear sector as there are many old reactors on the verge of being retired despite new reactors under construction. However, like the 1970's we could have a technical breakthrough and update the old reactors with safer, smaller and more efficient next generation nuclear reactors. We should invest in this forgotten sector when it is dirt cheap and in the midst of a bust as the long term forecast for nuclear is very strong. Climate change and global warming concerns will not go away and I believe America will continue to build and update its nuclear fleet over the next 5-10 years. Investors may wise up to this soon that nuclear is not on its way out, but waiting for a new beginning. The next nuclear renaissance will be with next generation small modular reactors in the battle to fight climate change. One of my holdings and website sponsors Energy Fuels (UUUU or EFR.TO) is continuing to base but I believe it could be turning the corner as it makes a bullish golden crossover of the 50 and 200 day moving average. In my opinion its the best way to invest in a pure play US uranium producer. There are not many uranium companies on the NYSE and very few that have cash, working capital, in production and making acquisitions. Energy Fuels acquired Uranerz last year for its low cost In-situ recovery operation in Wyoming and recently bought a low cost ISR operation in Texas. Energy Fuels was an $80 stock back before the Fukushima uranium bust. Now its under $2.50, but if uranium turns it could see similar moves to what we are now seeing in the gold stocks if not possibly bigger. All it takes is one black swan from Putin or one mine in the Athabasca to flood to change the story. Disclosure: I own securities in Energy Fuels and they are also a website sponsor. Owning securities and receiving compensation is a conflict of interest as I could personally benefit from a price/volume increase. Please do your own due diligence as this is not financial advice!See my full disclosure by clicking on the following link: http://goldstocktrades.com/blog/featured-companies-on-gold-stock-trades/ Investing in stocks is risky and could result in losing money.
