By the way, the link for the site:

Is there any other links doubting uranium reserves other than these two (smith and van Leewan?)

Whenever a uranium reserve question comes up its only ever these two that are quoted.

What we need is independant verification because we have the likes of the WNA/IEA/UA on one side and the anti nuclear brigade on the other (which include smith and van leewan who I believe are involved in research on the effects of radiation on the increase in cancer cases etc )

I suppose this isnt likely. Sad

Is there an honest appraisal of areas searched for Uranium against areas not, anywhere?

Interesting article here: http://www.newswales.co.uk/?section=Community&F=1&id=8388

Quote:
The only factory that produces Magnox fuel rods that are used in the Wylfa Nuclear Power Station has closed with only enough fuel rods left to supply Wylfa until 2010.

Commenting today, MP Jenny Willott said: " The Government says they are considering keeping Wylfa open beyond the planned closure deadline in 2010 in order to safeguard jobs at Anglesey Aluminium Ltd. But if there is no fuel left to do so, what is there to consider?

I wish that there was an unbiased source. I've tried to find one, and debated on peakoil.com but more or less every one falls into the fiercely pro- or fiercely anti- camp. I've heard arguments that Uranium is both plentiful and scarce....and I don't know which to believe Sad

I do think that the realistic timescale to build new nuclear plants is 15-20 years, and that if we put a lot of our (declining) financial resources into nuclear, this will mean that renewables will be short-changed, although we could ramp those up much more quickly.
