  • Breakthrough Technology in Utah to Make Oil Sands Clean

    The New Year will usher in a technological breakthrough from across the border in Canada that promises to deliver the first environmentally friendly oil sands in America, Bloomberg reports. And the staging ground is Utah—home to more than half of America’s known oil sands. Toronto-based MCW Energy Group (MCWEF: OTCQB; TSV: MCW.V) will begin producing cleaner, cheaper oil from oil sands next year at a newly built processing plant in northeastern Utah—home to some 32 million barrels of heavy crude buried in sand and silt. According to Bloomberg, MCW says it can extract Utah’s oil sands “without creating the toxic…

  • Two Breaking News Items in Uranium and Gold

    A couple of news items emerging this week critical to some of my recent themes. First, in uranium. Where it appears that momentum from reactor approvals I discussed the last few weeks is gaining speed. The pickup in sentiment in this market is evident in the uranium price. Which this week moved up significantly for the second week in a row—hitting $44 per pound, according to industry analysts UxC. That gives the metal a gain of $8 over the past few weeks alone. All coming since the Japanese town of Satsumasendai voted to approve the restart of two nuclear reactors—and…

  • You'll Be Surprised Where This Copper Mine Just Opened

    It didn't get a lot of fanfare--but it might be one of the most important developments in the North American mining sector for decades. That's the opening of one of the latest mines in America: the Eagle copper-nickel project, operated by Lundin Mining. Platts confirmed with company officials late last week that Eagle is now shipping mineral concentrates. With output expected to ramp up to peak capacity through 2015--at which point it will be putting out 23,000 tonnes of nickel (51 million pounds) and 20,000 tonnes of copper (44 million pounds) per year.Related: This Miner Is Paying $85 Million For A…

  • Watch For This Key Decision This Week In The Gold Market

    Short but very important note this week. From one of the world's most critical gold-consuming nations. That's India. Where top finance officials met yesterday to discuss the state of gold imports into the country--and potential new rules for this market. Local press reported that representatives from India's Commerce and Finance Ministry, as well as from the country's Reserve Bank, met because of concerns over rising gold imports. With a spike in imports during the September festive season leading to worries over India's growing current account deficit.Related: Foreign Investment Key To India’s Energy Future Officials are therefore expected to discuss possible new…

  • The Heart of This Shale Play Just Banned Fracking

    Very critical legal battle shaping up this past week. In one of the most historic petroleum plays in North America. That's the Barnett Shale of north Texas. Where opponents of unconventional drilling won a major political victory last week--one that could have ramifications for oil and gas development across this key state. The move came in the city of Denton, a hamlet just northwest of Dallas. Where municipal voters approved a ballot banning the use of hydraulic fracturing within city limits.Related: Why Are Voters In Denton Texas Afraid Of Fracking?

  • And Another Key Approval For The Uranium Market…

    I discussed last week about the municipal approval of restarts for two nuclear reactors in Sendai, Japan. With one of the knock-on items to watch for being further approval from the regional government here. We didn’t have to wait long. On Friday, the assembly for the prefecture of Kagoshima voted to support the local municipality in endorsing a restart of the nuclear units. Clearing one of the last hurdles for Japan’s first atomic energy capacity to come back online since the Tohoku earthquake. Importantly, statements from the prefectural government were very supportive of nuclear. With governor Yuichiro Ito saying that…

  • How Will The U.S. React to These Unapproved Oil Exports?

    One of the most important items to emerge in the petroleum space for some time--the first real test of U.S. export regulations around crude oil. The Wall Street Journal broke the story this week that major E&P outfit BHP Billiton plans to push the export rules. By shipping oil out of the country without explicit permission from the government. BHP has apparently already contracted to sell a 650,000-barrel cargo to Swiss trading house Vitol. No details have been given on the timing or destination of the shipment.Related: BHP To Sell US Shale Assets, Expects $5 Billion Gains By 2017 Here's why…

  • This Small-Town Vote Could Be A Boost For Uranium

    Another important step for the uranium market took place last week. With a key vote in Japan paving the way for the first restart of nuclear reactors in the country. That came in the town of Satsumasendai, southwest of Tokyo. An area that hosts the Sendai nuclear power plant--made up of three reactors. All of which have been off-line since the Tohoku earthquake in March 2011. But Satsumasendai's town council wants to change that. With a vote last week seeing 19 out of 26 council members vote in favour of restarting two reactors here.Related: Here's A Firesale on $6 Billion in…
