This week's coup in Niger, the world's third-largest uranium producer, leaves an uncertain future for French miner Orano and Canadian juniors Global Atomic and GoviEx, all of which have uranium projects in the country. But so far the coup has not spooked the uranium market; despite a few slightly raised bids following the coup news, the average price assessment delivered Jul. 27 by Energy Intelligence’s Uranium Price Panel was $56.16 per pound U3O8, down slightly from $56.36/lb. last week.
