Baku, Azerbaijan, July 8
By Elena Kosolapova - Trend:
Tajikistan is interested in the exploration of uranium areas and the development of uranium and rare earth deposits, Avesta.Tj reported on July 8 with the reference to Tajik official.
The Head of Tajik Geology Administration (Tajikglavgeology) Dzhumazoda Murod Hall said that the program for the Study of rare earth elements in Tajikistan for 2015-2025 will be approved in the near future.
"We do not have proven uranium deposits in our country, but there are some uranium manifestations which could receive status of deposits after approval of their reserves," Dzhumazoda said.
In 2013 French AREVA specializing in nuclear and renewable energy expressed interest in Tajik uranium. The parties held negotiations on uranium exploration but signed no agreements on its results.
