Uranium 2016: Resources, Production and Demand
A Joint Report by the Nuclear Energy Agency
and the International Atomic Energy Agency

Since the mid-1960s, with the co-operation of their member countries and
 states, the OECD Nuclear Energy Agency (NEA) and the International 
 Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) have jointly prepared periodic updates 
 (currently every two years) on world uranium resources, production and 
 demand. Such updates have been published in what are commonly known as 
 the “Red Books”. The 26th edition of the Red Book reflects information 
 current as of 1 January 2015.
This 26th edition features a comprehensive assessment of uranium supply 
and demand in 2015 and projections to the year 2035. The basis of this 
assessment is a comparison of uranium resource estimates (according to 
categories of geological certainty and production cost) and mine 
production capability with anticipated uranium requirements arising 
from projected installed nuclear capacity. In cases where longerterm 
projections of installed nuclear capacity were not provided by national 
authorities, projected demand figures were developed with input from 
expert authorities. Current data on resources, exploration, production 
and uranium stocks are also presented, along with historical summaries 
of exploration and production, and plans for future mine production. 
Available information on secondary sources of uranium is provided and 
the potential impact of secondary sources on the market is assessed. 
Individual country reports offer detailed information on recent 
developments in uranium exploration and production, on environmental 
activities, regulatory requirements and on relevant national uranium 
This publication has been prepared on the basis of data obtained 
through questionnaires sent by the NEA to OECD member countries and by 
the IAEA to other countries. It contains official data provided by 37 
countries and 12 national reports prepared by the NEA and the IAEA. The 
opinions expressed in Chapters 1 and 2 do not necessarily reflect the 
position of the member countries or international organisations
