    Uranium One Provides Production Guidance and Announces Management Appointments

    Trading Symbols: UUU - Toronto Stock Exchange, JSE Limited (Johannesburg

    Stock Exchange)

    TORONTO and JOHANNESBURG, South Africa, Oct. 30 /CNW/ - Uranium One Inc. ("Uranium One") announced today production guidance for its operations and development projects, as well as several appointments to its management team.

    The Company's U(3)O(8) production estimate for 2007 has been revised from 2.5 million pounds to approximately 2.1 million pounds. This revision is primarily due to the extended autoclave commissioning period at the Dominion Reefs Uranium Mine plant in South Africa. The first autoclave has now been commissioned and is operating at design throughput. The South Inkai uranium processing plant has begun production on schedule; however, production targets have been adjusted due to a temporary shortage of sulphuric acid caused by delays in the completion of a local Kazakhstan copper smelter. This shortage is expected to only impact on uranium start-up projects.

    The 2007 attributable production forecast for the Akdala Uranium Mine remains 1.8 million pounds U(3)O(8) at a cash operating cost of approximately US$10 per pound sold. Pre-commercial production for 2007 from the Dominion Reefs Uranium Mine is expected to be in excess of 200,000 pounds U(3)O(8). Pre-commercial attributable production for 2007 from the South Inkai Uranium Mine is expected to be 60,000 pounds of U(3)O(8).

    For 2008, the Company is revising its production forecast to 4.6 million pounds U(3)O(8) from 7.4 million pounds U(3)O(8), primarily due to the temporary sulphuric acid shortage which is expected to impact the ramp-up of both South Inkai and Kharasan. Together with its joint venture partner, Kazatomprom, the Company is seeking longer-term solutions to the sulphuric acid constraint; however, until these solutions have been identified, the Company is adjusting its 2008 production forecast downwards. Consolidated cash operating costs in 2008 are expected to be approximately US$20 per pound. Uranium One's estimated total attributable production forecast for 2008 is as follows:


    Project U(3)O(8) (lbs)


    Akdala 1,800,000


    Dominion 2,000,000


    South Inkai 500,000


    Kharasan 220,000


    Honeymoon 50,000


    Hobson 35,000


    Total Estimated Attributable U(3)O(8) Production 4,605,000


    With the continuing ramp-up of its various mining projects, Uranium One anticipates total attributable production of approximately 8 million pounds U(3)O(8) in 2009 and approximately 11 million pounds of U(3)O(8) in 2010. The 2009 and 2010 production forecasts assume that the Industrial Production Licences for both South Inkai and Kharasan will be granted by the first half of 2009 and that the temporary shortage of sulphuric acid is resolved in the latter half of 2008.

    Habe schon eine Rückstufung von Market- auf Underperform gesehen.

    Ich bleibe trotzdem drin (seit mitte August), bin knapp 15.8% im Plus.

    Finde die Story und Preis immer noch in Ordnung.

    Hier noch drei Uraninfolinks:

    Does sell-off present a buying opportunity in Uranium One?

    Decreased production forecasts for the next couple of years from Uranium One Inc. (UUU/TSX) got mixed reviews from analysts on Wednesday. Some said the development was neither surprising, nor a huge problem given that the company’s aggressive production profile comes with risks. Others were much more negative, downgrading the stock and taking a more cautious approach.

    The market reaction was clear: Uranium One shares plunged more than 17%.

    So does this present a buying opportunity?

    Raymond James analyst Bart Jaworski seems to think so. While acknowledging that the company’s new 2008 estimates were disappointing, he noted that sulphuric acid shortages in Kazakhstan have been an issue in the market over the past year or so. And while some may have thought these issues were being dealt with, the recent news from Uranium One throws that theory in doubt, Mr. Jaworski told clients in a note.

    The acid shortage and accompanying production forecast cuts may be a short-term negative for Uranium One, but it is bullish for uranium prices, he said, maintaining an “outperform rating” and $16 price target on the stock.

    “We believe management has decidedly tried to reflect the ‘worst case scenario’ in an effort to alleviate the need for any further downward revisions,” Mr. Jaworski wrote.

    Versant Partners Ian Parkinson also remains bullish on Uranium One. While cutting his price target on the stock to $15.70 from $17.50, the analyst reiterated his “strong buy.”

    While the lower production forecast leads to a valuation hit and perception of increased risk, he thinks the fundamentals of the uranium market put the company’s assets in a sweet spot for the future.

    Mr. Parkinson thinks the acid shortage will prove to be temporary, while tightening supply – due in part to competitor Cameco Corp.’s (CCO/TSX) push-back of restarting its Cigar Lake mine – should boost uranium prices. He also sees the U.S. as a major market for uranium and Uranium One’s assets there should allow it to capitalize on local demand.

    Uranium Advances 7% After Delays, Cuts by Cameco, Uranium One

    By Yuriy Humber

    Nov. 1 (Bloomberg) -- Uranium rose 7 percent this week after Cameco Corp. delayed a project and Uranium One Inc. and Paladin Resources Ltd. cut production forecasts.

    Uranium oxide concentrate for immediate delivery, used to make fuel for nuclear power plants, rose to $90 a pound, from $84 at the end of last week, Denver-based pricing service TradeTech LLC said yesterday. The metal has jumped 20 percent in a month.

    The advance ``gained momentum as news of production shortfalls made its way into the market,'' TradeTech said in a report. That ``prompted sellers to withdraw from the market.''

    Production delays will worsen a uranium shortage that in June helped propel the price to a record $138 a pound. The shortfall in supply has already forced producers including Cameco and AngloGold Ashanti Ltd. to buy material on the spot market this year to meet contracts.

    Uranium miners produced 103 million pounds of the metal last year, equal to about 65 percent of world demand. The rest came from government stockpiles and material extracted from decommissioned nuclear weapons.

    Cameco said yesterday it will delay the start of its Cigar Lake mine to 2011. The mine was originally expected to account for about a 10th of world output from this year. It is the largest untapped source of uranium and flooded in October 2006.

    Uranium One, owner of South Africa's biggest uranium deposit, on Oct. 30 cut its 2008 production target by 38 percent because of a shortage of sulfuric acid needed to recover the metal from mines in Kazakhstan.

    Paladin, the Australia-based company producing uranium in Namibia, said Oct. 26 it will produce 650,000 pounds at the Langer Heinrich mine in the second half of this year, a third less than expected.

  • Uranium one

    Uranium 1 hat sich mittlerweile stark auf Kasachstan konzentriert, d.h. extremes Länderrisiko, dafür hat es mit die niedrigsten Produktionskosten aller Uran-Produzenten und ist inzwischen die Nr.7 oder 8 weltweit. Die Aktie wird volatil bleiben. Für eine Langfristanlage würde ich lieber auf Cameco oder Energy Resources of Australia setzen. An Absturztagen immer für einen kurzfristigen Trade geeignet. Wird inzwischen auch fortlaufend auf Xetra gehandelt, Frankfurt Parkett ist aber umsatzstärker.
