Eggert interviewed by Phoenix New Times about uranium market

Rod Eggert, professor and Viola Vestal Coulter Chair in Mineral Economics at Colorado School of Mines, was recently interviewed by the Phoenix New Times about the global uranium market for a story about the uranium deposits near the Grand Canyon and the possiblity of the Trump administration lifting or revising a 2012 moratorium on any new mining claims in the area.

From the story:

Though the breccia pipes in the Grand Canyon area are thought to be some of the best deposits in the country, they’re only estimated to be about only 1 percent uranium.

“I don’t think anyone is arguing that these deposits are the best undeveloped deposits in the world,” Rod Eggert, a mineral economist at the Colorado School of Mines says. The important question, he continues, is whether “these deposits are commercially viable.”
