Rossing Uranium’s 2008 output up 25%

15 july 2009

Rössing Uranium mine says it increased its output by about 25 percent last year as production of uranium oxide went up from 3 046 tonnes in 2007 to 4 108 tonnes in 2008.
"The year under review closed off on a positive note for Rössing despite the uncertainties caused by the global financial crisis and the economic slowdown that characterised the business order worldwide," said Rössing Uranium managing director, Mike Leech in a stakeholder's report.
The report indicated that the mine was on track to reach full production capacity, of 4 500 tonnes, by 2012.
Rössing's general manager for corporate services, Jerome Mutumba, said the uranium miner had incurred expenses of about NAD1 billion (USD1=NAD8.1), related to government and state owned enterprises..
He said the firm had recorded profit after tax of NAD1, 23 billion compared to NAD979 million the previous year.
Meanwhile, Rio Tinto Uranium managing director, Clark Beyer said the uranium market outlook for 2009 was strong as uranium supply was battling to meet demand.
