13:52 EDTCCJCameco: Little improvement in Japan, but seeing some clarity on some issues
In a press release the company said: There was little improvement in 2012 over 2011 due to the lingering effects of the events in Japan, as well as global economic slowdown. However, we started to see some clarity on issues that have been overhanging the market. The most significant of these was the establishment in Japan of the Nuclear Regulatory Authority, NRA, which is currently drafting new safety standards for the nuclear industry in that country, against which reactor restarts will be evaluated. The NRA indicated that this process would likely take until mid-2013. While this means that reactor restarts will take longer than we had previously thought, we believe that the NRA brings important stability to the nuclear regulatory environment in Japan, and welcome the clarity it has already brought to the issue of reactor restarts.

11:12 EDTCCJUranium stocks rally after Japan approves reactor restart
Stocks of companies involved with the production, exploration and extraction of uranium are higher after the Kagoshima prefecture approved the restart of the Sendai nuclear power plant in Satsumasendai, Japan. The restart, which is slated to happen next year, will be the first restart since the meltdown at the Fukushima facility in 2011. WHAT'S NOTABLE. According to a BBC report, before the Fukushima incident 30% of Japan's power was nuclear-generated. Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has argued that the nuclear shutdown is hurting Japan's economy, as it has forced Japan to import expensive fossil fuels to make up the power shortfall.
