Yellow Cake says US uranium import decision to help long-term prices

Uranium fund Yellow Cake said on Monday the U.S. decision to not implement fresh trade restrictions on the metal’s import was likely to help long-term prices and bring production to a more normal level.

An investigation by the U.S. Commerce Department into uranium imports had constricted the uranium market and caused uncertainty in the past 18 months, the company said.

U.S. President Donald Trump said in a memorandum on Saturday he did not concur with the investigation that found uranium imports threaten to impair U.S. national security and ordered a deeper review by the U.S. Nuclear Fuel Working Group.

“We therefore expect a more measured return to market activity in the near term and remain highly confident in the long-term price outlook for uranium,” Yellow Cake Chief Executive Officer Andre Liebenberg said in a statement.

Yellow Cake has uranium holdings of nearly 10 million pounds for the period ended March 31.

AIM-listed shares of the company rose 3.7% to 224 pence in early trading.
