Trump grants extension for nuclear fuel recommendations

A US task force has been given more time to recommend ways to revive domestic uranium mining as it lags amid low prices and global competition

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. -- A U.S. task force has been given more time to recommend ways to revive domestic uranium mining as it lags amid low prices and global competition.

Uranium mining interests say the global market for uranium ore is vulnerable to political turmoil.

They want Trump to boost U.S. demand to help domestic suppliers. But the president rejected a requested quota during the summer and gave the task force 90 days to come up with other ideas.
