Lakeland Resources/Alpha Exploration combination gets shareholder approval

September 15th, 2015

by Greg Klein | September 15, 2015

A new Athabasca Basin explorer named ALX Uranium Corp came closer to inception on September 15 after shareholders of Lakeland Resources TSXV:LK and Alpha Exploration TSXV:AEX voted overwhelmingly in favour of combining the two companies.

The proposal won support from 96.01% of Alpha shareholders and 97% of Alpha security holders (shareholders and warrant holders), while Lakeland shareholders voted 95.76% in favour.

I call that a merger of two juniors to strengthen the balance sheet, increase resource science capabilities and bring together experienced management teams and board members.—Thomas Drolet, quoted in Streetwise Reports

In a Streetwise Reports interview posted the same day, energy expert and Lakeland adviser Thomas Drolet called the plan “a merger of two juniors to strengthen the balance sheet, increase resource science capabilities and bring together experienced management teams and board members.” Contrasting the deal with the proposed Fission Uranium TSX:FCU/Denison Mines TSX:DML merger, Drolet said the Lakeland/Alpha combination comprises “a different kind of M&A. It is more a merger of two juniors that want to stay in the E&P extraction business, get on with drilling and strengthen their balance sheets.”

Their combined portfolio would be one of the Basin’s largest, with “a string of Tier 1 drill targets,” according to Lakeland CEO Jonathan Armes.

Should further approvals come from the TSXV and British Columbia Supreme Court, the two companies anticipate ALX Uranium will debut on September 25’s opening buzzer.

World Nuclear Association looks at uranium demand to 2035

September 10th, 2015

by Greg Klein | September 10, 2015

“Nuclear electricity output is set to increase at a faster rate over the next five years than we have seen for more than two decades,” the World Nuclear Association told a London symposium on September 10. Even so, that doesn’t seem to satisfy the WNA, whose director-general Agneta Rising added, “We must build on that positive momentum.”

World Nuclear Association looks at uranium demand to 2035

Global nuclear generation capacity should expand from today’s 379 gigawatts-electric to 404 GWe by 2020 and 552 GWe by 2035, according to the “reference scenario” of a WNA study presented at the conference. The report also provided two other projections. A lower scenario sees nuclear capacity stagnating to 2030, before dropping off with several reactor shutdowns prior to 2035. The more bullish upper scenario sees capacity rising to 429 GWe in 2020 and 720 GWe in 2035.

The reference and upper scenarios indicate additional uranium supply “will be needed soon after 2025 and will require the development of ‘supply pipeline’ projects,” the WNA stated. “Additional conversion and enrichment capacity is also likely to be needed in these scenarios.”

Primary and secondary sources suggest adequate uranium supplies up to 2025, “provided that all mines currently under development and also most of the planned and prospective mines enter service as planned,” the report maintained. “Beyond 2025, further uranium production will be required if the reference and upper scenarios for demand are to be satisfied.”

Nuclear energy currently provides about 11% of the world’s electricity, the WNA noted, and forms “an essential element in any credible strategy to combat carbon emissions while also contributing to energy security of supply.”
