INFOGRAPHIC: Uranium – the metal of tomorrow

Thirteen percent of the world's electricity is nuclear but despite being the fourth largest electricity source, uranium doesn't make headlines very often. When it does it's usually over fears that some power-bent dictator is collecting the stuff or a nuclear reactor is threatening to explode. Now the people of Kivalliq Energy Corporation (TSXV:KIV) have decided to dispel the mystique surrounding the radioactive element with this Visual Capitalist infographic: Uranium – The metal of tomorrow.

Kivalliq has been hunting for uranium in Canada's north for more than 25 years. The company recently began a $4 million drilling program in Nunavut after embarking on the largest exploration phase in the company's history in 2012.
