Iran Discovers New Uranium Deposits
Iran claims to have found more domestic uranium deposits.
The deputy chief for nuclear research and technology, Mohammad Ghannadi, said Iran had found at least three new uranium deposits in central Iran and was working toward mining them. “We have got good news: the discovery of new uranium mines in central Iran,” Ghannadi told a conference Tuesday.
I don’t know whether this is truthful and lack the technical expertise to evaluate what impact this would have on Iran’s ability to build a nuclear device. This can’t be “good news,” though, from a perspective other than Iran’s.
