Langer Heinrich mine to ship out uranium soon

THE newly commissioned Langer Heinrich Uranium mine (LHU) in Namibia says it has experienced “minimal hiccups” since it was commissioned on December 28 last year, but is on track with its mining goals.

“We will achieve the envisaged production rate of 2,6 million pounds of uranium oxide by the end of the ramp-up period in June this year,” according to Paladin Resources, the Australian mother company of LHU. “Production until June is difficult to estimate, although expected to be in the range of 900 000 to one million pounds,” predicted Paladin’s Managing Director John Borshoff in a statement.His previous forecast stood at 1 to 1,5 million pounds of uranium oxide, also called yellow cake.The company added that the first commercial shipment of uranium from the Langer Heinrich mine is scheduled for next month.”Production until June is difficult to estimate, although expected to be in the range of 900 000 to one million pounds,” predicted Paladin’s Managing Director John Borshoff in a statement.His previous forecast stood at 1 to 1,5 million pounds of uranium oxide, also called yellow cake.The company added that the first commercial shipment of uranium from the Langer Heinrich mine is scheduled for next month.
