Uranium sector won’t catch a break

One week ago Cameco announced it will maintain low output levels until uranium prices recover. The Canadian uranium miner also said it might cut production further, having already closed four mines in Canada and laid off 2,000 of its workers in the uranium mining hub of Saskatchewan. 
. . . Just over a year ago Cameco made the difficult decision to close its MacArthur River and Key Lake mines, in response to low uranium prices, leaving the company’s flagship Cigar Lake facility as its only operating mine left in northern Saskatchewan, home to the world’s highest grade uranium deposit. 

The mine closures by Cameco were preceded by 20% production cuts in Kazakhstan, the number one uranium-producing country. The former Soviet bloc country has said 2020-21 output will not rise above 2019 levels. In Canada, the second largest U producer, 2018 production was cut in half to 7,000 tonnes. 


An estimated 35% of uranium supply has been stripped from the market since Kazakhstan’s supply reductions in December 2017.

Uranium demand and China 

In response to the supply glut/ low price argument, uranium bulls like to present China as the country that will save the day and float everyone’s long-sunken uranium stock boats. It’s true that, of 453 operating nuclear reactors and 55 new reactors under construction, globally, China has the most reactors in the pipeline including 43 operating, 15 under construction and 179 planned or proposed. 

China then, will demand millions of tonnes of yellowcake, that it will have to import, right, pushing up the price? In fact, China has been working to reduce its dependence on imported uranium, and fossil-fueled power generation, by developing domestic uranium deposits and either partnering with or buying mine properties overseas. The Asian superpower has started building its own uranium supply chain, such as starting the Husab mine in Namibia. In November 2018, China National Uranium Corp bought the Rossing mine in Namibia from Rio Tinto

According to the World Nuclear Association, China has become self-sufficient in most aspects of the nuclear fuel cycle: China aims to produce one-third of its uranium domestically, obtain one-third through foreign equity in mines and joint ventures overseas, and to purchase one-third on the open market.

The China Nuclear International Uranium Corporation (SinoU) set up the Azelik mine in Niger and has agreed to buy a 25% stake in Paladin’s Langer Heinrich mine in Namibia for $190 million. In 2007 SinoU bought a share in the Zhalpak mine in Kazakhstan, through a joint venture with Kazatomprom.

Prospects in Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Mongolia, Namibia, Algeria and Zimbabwe, Canada and South Africa are also seen as potential suppliers for SinoU, writes WNA.

Cameco gets a buy rating, trades up 6%

Uranium giant Cameco (NYSE:CCJ) was upgraded from a hold to a buy by TD Securities analyst Greg Barnes.

According to reporting by The Fly, Barnes said the past decade of weak uranium prices may be ending, and the market will allow producers to rebuild long-term contract portfolios at commercially acceptable prices.

Cameco traded up 6% to $15.30 a share as of 4 p.m. ET.

TD Securities put a price target of $18 on the stock.

In March Cameco announced that its Cigar Lake operation was being placed in safe care and maintenance mode for four weeks due to COVID-19. The company also withdrew guidance due to uncertainty around the pandemic.

(TSX-V: URC) (“URC” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that its common shares will commence trading on the TSX Venture Exchange (“TSX-V”) today at market open under the symbols “URC”. The warrants issued by the Company under its initial public offering (the "IPO") will commence trading on the TSX-V under the symbol “URC.WT” at market open on December 12, 2019.

With the previously announced completion of the Company’s oversubscribed and upsized $30 million IPO and the completion of its TSX-V listing, URC becomes the first publicly-traded pure play uranium royalty company, positioning the Company to partake in future opportunities as a non-dilutive capital provider for uranium developers.

URC's competitive advantages include:

  • First Mover Advantage: URC is the first company to apply the successful royalty and streaming business model exclusively to the uranium sector.
  • Strong Balance Sheet: URC currently has approximately $40 million of cash and listed securities and no debt, which positions it to capitalize on accretive uranium royalty and streaming acquisition opportunities.
  • Physical Uranium Ownership: Through its approximately 9% stake in London-listed YCA.L, Yellow Cake plc, URC holds interests in physical uranium, acquired at cyclical lows.
  • Large and Diversified Royalty Portfolio: With the acquisition of three additional royalties, URC’s royalty portfolio includes interests on development, advanced, permitted and past-producing uranium projects in multiple jurisdictions with aggregate JORC and 43-101 resources of 271 million pounds U3O8 of measured and indicated resources and 148 million pounds U3O8 of inferred resources

URC owns 7.6 million shares of London-listed Yellow Cake PLC ("Yellow Cake", YCA.L ) as of the date hereof, or approximately 9% of the outstanding shares of outstanding Yellow Cake. Such shares were acquired as part of URC's US$19.25 million cornerstone strategic investment in Yellow Cake US$200 million initial public offering in July 2018.  As previously disclosed, the Company utilized part of the proceeds from its IPO to fully repay and retire a CDN$12.8 million (US$9.7 million) senior secured credit facility that had been used to finance its acquisition of Yellow Cake shares.  An element of the strategic partnership with Yellow Cake entitles URC the option to acquire up to US$31.25 million of physical uranium under Yellow Cake's long-term supply agreement with Kazatomprom, which is based in Kazakhstan and is the world’s largest uranium producer.

Here's someone who did not like the URC ipo... His comments on URA come towards the end

He is not a fan, and sees it as "a Vancouver circle jerk", burning cash.

"The royalties are not yet producing cash, and some of the properties will never come into production."

"Some expensive people, who take big salaries"
