Iran Reveals They Have Discovered Vast Amounts of Uranium Ore


This discovery has made it possible for Iran to become completely self-sufficient with their nuke program – they no longer have to import uranium.

World powers previously believed uranium ore was an Achilles’ Heel of Iran’s nuclear aspirations, since the country was considered as having very low reserves of the material and would need to import.

Reuters on Saturday quoted a report by US think-tanks Carnegie Endowment and the Federation of American Scientists that said Iran was compelled “to rely on external sources of natural and processed uranium” because of the scarcity and low quality of its own uranium resources.

“Despite the Iranian leadership’s assertions to the contrary, Iran’s estimated uranium endowments are nowhere near sufficient to supply its planned nuclear program,” according to the report.

Salehi told IRNA on Saturday that by now, two-thirds of the country have been already covered in the search for uranium ore. He said that within four years, the search will have covered all of Iran.

The new mine, Salehi said, is in the province of Yazd in central Iran.

Sanctions on companies involved in the mining of uranium in Iran will be lifted as part of the historic and controversial nuclear deal.

A new report reveals that Iran has tried to buy illegal nuclear technology dozens of times. Turn to the next page for more:
