Iran opens new uranium mines and yellowcake plant
The country opened the Saghand 1 and 2 uranium mines in the central city of Yazd and the Shahid Rezaeinejad yellow cake factory, capable of producing 60 tonnes of yellow cake annually, to mark Iran's National Nuclear Technology Day, official news agency IRNA said.
The two mines in the city of Saghand in central Iran operate 1,150 feet underground, and are within 75 miles of the yellowcake production facility in the city of Ardakan, in Yazd province, state television said.
Yellowcake is the impure state of uranium oxide later used in enrichment facilities.
Iran's enrichment activities, which it says are aimed at feeding a peaceful energy programme, are the focus of international concerns, with Western powers and Israel fearing Tehran is developing an atom bomb.
The announcements, on the occasion of Iran's national Atomic Energy Technology day, come shortly after talks between Iran and six world powers on Tehran's nuclear ambitions failed to achieve a breakthrough.
The six - five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany known as the P5+1 - met with Iranian negotiators in the Kazakh city of Almaty on April 5 and 6 in a bid to coax Iran into curbing its programme in exchange for the easing of some sanctions.
Iran enriches uranium to both 3.5 and 20 percent levels in its Natanz and Fordo enrichment facilities. Uranium purified at high levels can be used in a nuclear weapon.
