Uranium output in 2005.

This article includes lists representing estimated reserves and production of uranium by country.

The first list gives the two estimates of reserves of recoverable uranium in 2007, regardless of isotope, based on a set market price. Data is taken from the World Nuclear Association[1] (reasonably assured resources plus inferred resources at $130/kg on 2007) and European Nuclear Society[2] . Countries are ranked by the first estimate.

The second list gives the uranium production in 2006 mostly based on British Geological Survey[3] accessed in July 2008.
