Is uranium mined in Gabon?

Prospecting and exploration for uranium continues in Gabon. It has been ongoing for some years, but though extensive deposits have been located, the extent of these deposits and the concentration of uranium in the ore make economic recovery questionable. At least four large mining consortiums are still in the hunt, however. As the market for uranium evolves, the companies continuously evaluate the profitability of a mining venture for this heavy metal in Gabon.
