    Increasingly, demand is being met by new production, which is all being entirely developed outside of the USA. There is substantially no uranium mining in the USA.

    The lack of uranium mining in the US is due to economics. It has been prohibitively expensive to mine uranium here compared to purchasing downblended uranium from old Soviet bombs. When the economics change, domestic uranium production will change.

    Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former.
