The heaviest metal in the world is Plutonium with an atomic weight of 244. However, this is disputed since it was discovered in a lab. Therefore, there are claims that Uranium is the heaviest natural metal with an atomic weight of 238. Uranium can be found in many things, but has only two uses; stomic bombs or reactors. Canada, SW America, Australia, parts of Europe, and the Soviet Union all mine for Uranium. Most recently Saskatchewan has developed into the Uranium capital of the world.
Atomic weight is not directly proportional to the density of natural materials. Osmium metal (22.6 grams/cc) is denser than Uranium (18.9 g/cc).
