Perth, July 15, 2009 AEST (ABN Newswire) - 2009 will be an interesting year for Uranium in Western Australia. The change of Government has led to uranium exploration and mining being back in favour but the financial crisis has led to a lack of funds being available for exploration. However the outlook is positive. Uranium usage is tipped to increase with China and India leading the way and Japan also active in the sector.
There is no doubt that WA will play a vital role in the supply chain over the next decade.
Hear from government ministers, associations, uranium companies and financial experts as they discuss all aspects of the Australian Uranium Industry.
The 2009 Australian Uranium Conference will be the most important yet.
