The introduc-tion reads, "The purpose of this study is to estimate the balance between demand and supply of newly mined uranium for the world outside the centrally planned economies (WOCA) over the years 1991-2000... to draw conclusions regarding likely trends in uranium prices during the coming decade." Among the conclusions: "It is predicted that the uranium market will be almost exactly in balance over the decade as a whole. Development of even one small new uranium project in Australia would mean that supply would significantly exceed demand..." Does not take military consumption into consideration. Two appendices list statistics and data for uranium mines (WOCA only) that produced more than 100 tonnes U3O8 in 1988, and projects which could be in production during 1991-2000.
