For decades the Navajo Nation has been explored and mined for Uranium. Its legacy is deadly and has immediate and long-term disastrous effects on the health and welfare of the Dine people. The waters are contaminated with radionuclides; the land and air are also contaminated.
Chris Shuey is well versed; having lived and studied 30 years the effects of Uranium mining and milling on Navajo. Chris will share with us his knowledge and will speak about the “First” Navajo Nation wide Birth Cohort Study.

The Great Sioux Nation is made up of seven sub nations and called itself, Oceti Sakowin. Yet, because of deceit, greed, and dishonesty by the United States, six of the sub nations almost totally disappeared by the beginning of the 20th Century.
In 1972, President Richard Nixon signed an Executive Order in secret declaring this four-state region of the country to be a "National Sacrifice Area" for the mining and production of uranium and nuclear energy.
In southwestern South Dakota, the southern Black Hills contain many abandoned uranium mines. Nuclear radiation near Edgemont, SD, polluted the underground water of the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation according to a study completed in the 1980s by Women of All Red Nations.
Our speical guest today is Charmaine White Face, Zumila Wobaga, (66) is Oglala Tituwan Oceti Sakowin (Oglala Lakota from the Great Sioux Nation). She is a mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. As the Spokesperson for the Sioux Nation Treaty Council, established in 1894, she authored a book called Indigenous Nations Rights in the Balance, An Analysis of the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples after attending the debates for a number of years at the United Nations.
In 2002, she founded and continues to coordinate Defenders of the Black Hills, a non-profit environmental organization which received the international Nuclear Free Future Award for Resistance in 2007, in Salzburg, Austria. Ms. White Face is a Physical Scientist and Biologist. She taught at the college level prior to becoming a writer. She has been trying to increase awareness of the radioactive pollution in the Northern Great Plains since 2003.

European Uranium (EUU.V or EUUNF) stands out in the junior uranium space as it owns the high grade uranium Kuriskova deposit in Slovakia that is at the advanced Feasibility stage. Europe only has one uranium mine currently in production. This project could be the next major uranium producer for the European Continent and is expected to come into production at the end of this decade. It is one of the highest grade advanced projects outside of the Athabasca Basin. The company published a pre-feasibility study that demonstrated the Kuriskova Project could be one of the lowest cost uranium producers. Unlike so many other juniors, European Uranium's project is at the advanced Bankable Feasibility stage. The deposit is located in Slovakia where over 60% of its power comes from nuclear, yet the country has no domestic supply. This project could fill Slovakia's increasing uranium demand and even export a surplus to neighboring countries. Europe is the largest per capita user of nuclear power. The company made a major milestone in 2012 by signing a memorandum of understanding with the Slovakian Government. This agreement recognizes Kuriskova as a strategic asset that could provide the country with its own domestic uranium supply. European Uranium is advancing toward publishing a bankable feasibility study on Kuriskova. The company is continuing to build local and federal support with the Slovakian Government. .

The U.S. is the largest consumer of uranium of over 55 million pounds annually. Over 104 nuclear reactors are operating. Currently domestic mining and production of uranium in the U.S. is around 4 million pounds. That means the U.S. relies on imports for more than 92% of its uranium consumption to keep these plants running. This is a far cry from energy independence and makes savvy investors realize that in today's world of rising geopolitical turbulence, the importance of safe and secure uranium supplies. In addition, a large part of the supply of uranium comes from the nuclear missiles from Russia. This agreement is about to expire at the end of 2013. This is about 24 million pounds annually which will no longer be supplied by the Russians. Uranium investors are anticipating a stronger market for uranium into the second half of 2013 as the Russia-US agreement expires and as the Japanese turn the nuclear reactors that they shut down in 2011 due to the Fukuskima disaster, back on this summer. Uranerz is planning to start producing uranium at the end of this year. The company has contracts with major U.S. utilities to sell uranium at much higher uranium prices. This gives the company some certainty that there will be some positive cash flow as they move into production. Uranerz has an enviable and strategic position in the Powder River Basin in Wyoming which hosts the largest producing uranium mine in the U.S.A. Cameco, the largest publicly trade uranium miners, is expanding production to the north and south of Uranerz and already has a processing agreement with Cameco to process the uranium.

Global demand for uranium is set to increase rapidly as emerging markets increasingly utilize nuclear power to meet their growing need for power generation. George Jarkesy discusses the macroeconomic forces that may drive increased future uranium mining, and what effect that mining will have on uranium prices.
