Australia's Uranium Resources

Australia holds approximately 30% of the world's estimated low-cost uranium reserves at more than 50 known economic deposits and minor occurences. Significantly sized deposits exist in the far north of the Northern Territory, northern and central Western Australia and north-western Queensland and in central South Australia. Exploration by both domestic and foreign companies is continuing to expand.
