Etango Project

The Etango Uranium Project is one of the world’s largest undeveloped uranium projects. It is located in Namibia, southern Africa, one of the world’s top 5 uranium producing nations with substantial mining infrastructure. Etango is one of the few uranium projects in the world with a completed Definitive Feasibility Study (DFS) and environmental permitting and will be a top 10 producer once developed.

Based on the DFS, production is expected to be 7-9 million pounds U3O8 per year for the first five years and 6-8 million pounds U3O8 per year thereafter. It will have a minimum mine life of 16 years with significant expansion potential through the conversion of existing Inferred Resource as well as the deposit being open at depth and along strike.

Etango is considered by Bannerman to be a low technical and environmental risk project, with conventional open pit mining and sulphuric acid heap leaching at 20 million tonnes per annum.

The Etango licence area (EPL 3345) is approximately 500 square kms.

Following the Fukushima incident in March 2011, a small group of countries which collectively consume modest amounts of uranium by global standards, have renounced nuclear energy whilst new programs are emerging in countries such as Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. Routine maintenance and standard procedure has seen nuclear power plants in Japan systematically shut down. Numerous regional authorities are considering the restarting of those nuclear reactors, with Sendai 1 & 2 reactors approved for resuming operations.

Importantly, the nuclear power growth engine countries including China, India, Russia and South Korea have reiterated their commitment to nuclear power.  Globally, there are 490 new reactors planned or proposed (June 2015).

In the US, 104 nuclear power plants producing 33% of the world’s nuclear energy will continue operation with a further 28 in the pipeline. World Nuclear Association (WNA) show China’s intention to increase nuclear capacity from 23 GWe to 253 GWe by 2030.

The emphasis on nuclear energy by China, and India, has led to a large uptick in proposed and planned nuclear reactor, which in the medium term will lead to large increases in demand for uranium. These planned reactors are complementary to the progressive restart of the Japanese reactor fleet, with these factors weighing heavily towards the forecasted uranium price jumps in the coming years.
