When is “peak uranium” expected to occur?

    Globally, sometime between the 1980s and 2035, or some other time. This is not something that can be known definitively until well after it has occurred.

    Some think peak uranium is immanent, and will happen within a few years, unless civilian energy companies are granted more access to the military stocks, not just to that from older programs. Since a sizeable chunk of uranium supplies does come from older weapons programs and stockpiles (about 40%), the International Atomic Energy Agency and Nuclear Energy Agency believe there is enough uranium to last the next 100 years, although there are “supply-side issues” that could shoten this time.

    The issue is under a lot of debate, we can’t be sure until we actually run out of uranium.
