  • This article is an edited version of a speech given by Thomas C. Pool, Vice-President of NUEXCO Information Services, at the US Council For Energy Awareness' Uranium Seminar 1993, held October 3-6, 1993, in Tucson, Arizona. In conclusion the author asks where can utilities go for their future needs In short, Canada is, and will be, the world's foremost source of low-cost uranium. Australia could also be a significant low-cost supplier, but not until the political situation with regards to uranium is resolved. Canada probably will be seen as a [open quotes]base load[close quotes] supplier and Australia as a closemore » second. The next tier suppliers are Namibia, South Africa, and the US, all with substantial, moderate-cost production capability currently on standby.« less
