This paper summarizes the uranium information available from those Federal agencies which are ERC members and which have the competence to report on the uranium supply outlook. Two distinct questions are apparent: Is there enough uranium in the ground (domestic natural resources) to support a large national nuclear power program; Is uranium likely to be discovered, developed, and produced in sufficient quantities and in time to meet the demand. Available data indicate that there are sufficient economically recoverable uranium resources on which to base an expanding nuclear program.
