Today, Ukraine extracts about 1000 tons of uranium per year. It is enough to provide about 30% of requirements of the Ukrainian NPPs. Considering that the nuclear power provides more than 56% of production of all electric power of Ukraine, increase in characteristic extraction of uranium - strategically important task. It was declared by the chief geologist of State Enterprise "Kirovgeologiya" of Vadim Carly.
"Today on stream there are three fields. One of them, Vatutinskoye, will exhaust the stocks literally in 2 years. Therefore Ukraine needs to take urgently measures for increase in characteristic extraction of uranium ore", - commented Vadim Carly.
According to the chief geologist of the State Enterprise "Kirovgeologiya", Ukraine has huge potential "Uranium ore on the Novokonstantinovsky field which is considered one of the largest in Ukraine, more than 10 years are got, and did not come to the possible volume of production. If the branch receives necessary financing either from the state or from the investor, then within 5 years Ukraine can quietly increase the volume of characteristic extraction of uranium to 2500 tons", - declared Vadim Carly.
