With anxieties about oil has come the recognition that uranium supplies are not inexhaustible and that, like oil, uranium poses problems of import dependence and cartelization. Debate on the long-term prospects for uranium supply and price has centred on the hypothetical, unanswerable question 'What additional uranium resources will ultimately be discovered and at what prices will they become available?'.
