Uranium supply from these countries could be increasingly important in satisfying worldwide reactor requirements over time. Along with the increasing contribution to worldwide uranium supply, the environmental impact of uranium production in developing countries has come under increasing scrutiny from the nuclear power industry, the end-users of this supply, and from communities impacted by uranium mining Uranium mining is the process of extraction of uranium ore from the ground. As uranium ore is mostly present at relatively low concentrations, most uranium mining is very volume-intensive, and thus tends to be undertaken as open-pit mining.  and processing. The papers presented at the meeting on "Developments in Uranium Resources, Production, Demand and the Environment" provide an important overview of uranium production operations and of their environmental consequences in developing countries, as well as offering insight into future production plans and potential.
