Mining Uranium & nuclear fuel cycle
RÖSSING MINE’S PRODUCTION OF URANIUM OXIDE AND THE NUCLEAR FUEL CYCLE
Uranium is a relatively common element that is found in the earth all over the world, mined in many countries and processed into yellow cake or uranium oxide (U3O8). It must be processed further before it can be used as a fuel for a nuclear reactor where electricity is generated to produce steam and drive a turbine connected to a generator.
