Does Northern Greece hide uranium deposits? May 27, 2006

Greece is hiding at least 1,525 tons of uranium, Greek newspaper “Ta Nea” reads today.

If the country decides to exploit the deposits it may ensure its energy independence in case of a future world energy crisis. According to a research made by the Institute for Mining-Geological Research the earth’s womb in Northern Greece, in the region of Drama and Serres, hides over 10,000 tons of uranium.

According to experts the uranium research must continue. They think that the deposits may ensure 20 years of independent functioning of a nuclear reactor with a 1,000-megawatt capacity. The deposits, however, will not suffice for 30 years which is the condition for building a nuclear reactor.
