Mention the word uranium and most likely weapons of mass destruction come to mind. While you can make plenty of jokes about investment returns in the event of nuclear war, choosing to diversify your portfolio with uranium mining stocks is certainly worth a closer look.
Azincourt Uranium Inc. (OTCBB: AZURF) (TSX: AAZ.V) the Canadian based resource company specializing in the strategic acquisition, exploration and development of uranium properties, recently announced that it has completed the acquisition of an option to gain an undivided 70-percent stake in a mining project in the Athabasca Basin of Saskatchewan. This allows the mining company to increase exploration and production mining in a region known to be rich in base minerals.
The significance of this is twofold: as climate change continues to be a global issue, the demand for clean energy is rising. And as demand rises, so too does the number of nuclear reactors under construction worldwide. In China alone there were 20 nuclear reactors under construction at the end of March, 2017.
