The details of how Iran received yellowcake
from NUFCOR were uncovered for the first time by Professor Gabrielle Hecht of the University of Michigan, while she did archival research at the company's old headquarters near Johannesburg.
There are reports allege that Al-Qaeda is interested in the Libyan yellowcakes
which could be used for a potential nuclear weapon component.
Just as no outsider knew for certain Israel's intentions at the time it went shopping for yellowcake
is a kind of uranium concentrate powder obtained from leach solutions, in an intermediate step in the processing of uranium ores.
In December 2010, the first consignment of indigenous yellowcake
was transferred to Isfahan Uranium Conversion Facility (UCF) from Gachin mines under the surveillance of the International Atomic Energy Organization (IAEA).
The resin, which is reusable, gets transported to facilities like Hobson, which remove the uranium and turn it into yellowcake
As part of its Syria probe, the IAEA has sought to examine the yellowcake
at Homs, which if further processed could be used as nuclear fuel.
for conversion, the yellowcake
remains a fungible commodity that can be
The mining and milling of uranium ore is not banned by UN resolutions (which focus on uranium enrichment), but one of the ways the international community has sought to close down Iran's nuclear programme is to stop it importing yellowcake
Today, we witnessed the shipment of the first domestically produced yellowcake
The s Mhared mental environment was flooded with what then seemed like plausible justifications for the invasion of Iraq: Iraqi WMD; Iraqi ties to Al Qaeda; Iraqi meetings with Al Qaeda in Prague; Iraqi mobile biological weapons laboratories; Iraqi purchases of yellowcake
uranium from Niger.
And instead of admitting that they lied about Iraqi WMD, Iraqi ties to al-Qaeda, Iraqi mobile biological weapons laboratories, Iraqi yellowcake
uranium from Niger, and Iraqi meetings in Prague, Zionist propagandists are busy concocting similarly brazen lies about Iran.
Purified ore, or uranium oxide, known as yellowcake
, is processed into a uranium gas, which is then spun and respun to varying degrees of enrichment.
In a meeting earlier this month, Syria "identified other possible sources of the anthropogenic natural uranium particles, including domestically produced yellowcake
and small quantities of imported, but previously undeclared, commercial uranyl nitrate," the IAEA report said.
