Uranium Country Notes
Prior to Germany's reunification in 1990, the GDR had been a major producer of uranium, with a cumulative output of some 213 000 tonnes. All uranium mines have now been closed and the only production relates to uranium recovered in clean-up operations in the former mining/milling areas: 2005 output from this source was 77 tonnes, obtained during the decommissioning of the Königstein mine in Saxony.
Germany's Identified Resources of uranium total 7 000 tonnes, comprising
3 000 tonnes of RAR recoverable at less than US$ 130/kgU, and 4 000 tonnes of IR in the same price category. Speculative Resources are put at 74 000 tonnes, with their cost range unassigned.
