The Langer Heinrich uranium mine in Namibia. Photo courtesy Paladin Energy. A pre-feasibility study has shown “improved economics” for the possible restart of the Langer Heinrich Mine in Namibia, Australia-based uranium developer Paladin Energy said.

The study, which focused on “a rapid, low-capital and low-risk restart”, indicates that the initial capital needed is US$80m, including US$38m for plant repair and improvement and US$42m for working capital.

The mine would have a production capacity of 5.2 million pounds of uranium ore a year while processing high and medium grade ore for about eight years. This would be followed by a production capacity of 2.7 million pounds a year while processing low grade ore for about 12 years.
