Survey of Energy Resources 2007
Uranium Country Notes
Since 1952, when Romania started to produce uranium, cumulative output has exceeded 18 000 tonnes. There are deposits in three principal areas: the Apuseni Mountains in the west, the Banat Mountains in the south-west and the Eastern Carpathians. Since 1978, all of Romania's production of uranium ore has been processed at the Feldioara mill in the centre of the country.
Uranium output in 2005 was approximately 80 tonnes, with RAR (up to US$ 130/kgU) at the beginning of the year estimated as 3 145 tonnes (recoverable). Other Identified Resources recoverable at the same cost level were 3 608 tonnes of IR; in-situ undiscovered resources comprised 3 000 tonnes of PR together with an equal tonnage of SR.
