KGHM looks for uranium deposits for Poland's planned n-plant
February 20, 2014
Poland’s copper giant KGHM is looking for uranium deposits in Namibia, Canada, Australia and Kazakhstan, which could be used in the planned Polish nuclear power plant, KGHM director for strategic analysis and raw material deposits Maciej Konski told a parliamentary committee.
"We are researching uranium deposits for the needs of the planned nuclear power plant," Konski said. "Annual needs of such a power plant are at 1,200 tons of U3O8," he added.
KGHM is a member of a still non-formalized consortium, led by Poland’s utility PGE, to build the country's first nuclear plant.
