Tummalapalle Information

  • General 2015-05-10
    Results from a research conducted by the Atomic Energy Commission of India in 2011 made the analysts conclude that this mine might have one of the largest reserves of uranium in the world. The Atomic Energy Commission of India confirmed on reserves of 49,000 tonnes and suggested that they could be even three times larger which would make Tummalapalle the mine with the world's largest uranium deposits. The uranium purification plant is ready, and is expected to begin production by the end of 2011. This finding substantially increased India's capability of producing energy from nuclear plants. As of 2011, India was producing about 3% of its energy from nuclear plants. These findings suggest that this output can be increased to more than 30% by 2050. This domestic uranium find would not only boost India's nuclear energy plans but also help to reduce costs by switching from expensive sources of power like coal.
