Survey of Energy Resources 2007
Uranium Country Notes
Uranium exploration got under way during the 1980s, since when a number of significant occurrences have been observed. Total Identified Resources are estimated to approach 100 000 tonnes of uranium. On an in-situ basis, Jordan's RAR are put at 37 500 tU and its IR at 60 000 tU, both at a production cost of less than US$ 40/kgU and with an estimated recovery factor of 81%. Prognosticated Resources at up to US$ 80/kgU are estimated to amount to a further 37 500 tU.
By-product resources consist of approximately 70 000 tU associated with phosphate deposits.
