READ: Peninsula Energy awaits President Trump’s review of Section 232 uranium investigation

Like other companies involved in the US uranium industry, Peninsula is awaiting a review by US President Donald Trump into a report investigating the effects of high levels of uranium imports on national security interests.

The US Department of Commerce (DOC) has completed an investigation undertaken in accordance with Section 232 of the Trade Expansion Act of 1962.

Report submitted to White House

DOC’s report has been submitted to the White House and the President has up to 90 days to decide whether or not to take any action.

The DOC investigation was conducted in response to a petition filed by two US uranium mining companies in January 2018.

It included consultations with industry stakeholders, members of Congress, the Department of Defence, the Department of Energy and other interested parties.

Seeking to ensure viability of US industry

The petition requested that DOC investigate the effects of uranium imports on US national security and sought measures to increase the level of US mined uranium to ensure the long-term viability of the country’s uranium mining industry.

Among the remedies it sought was a 25% quota of annual US requirements being reserved for uranium mined in the US.

It is unknown if the DOC concurred with the remedies requested by petitioners.
