[Guinean news] Major uranium reserves discovered near Kissidougou

The Guinean government says that commercially viable reserves of uranium have been discovered in the country.

Information Minister Justin Morel Junior announced that samples of uranium were extracted by a mineral company in Firawa [in the southeastern prefecture of Kissidougou].

A BBC correspondent says Guinea is hoping to cash in on the strong global demand for uranium as a nuclear fuel, which has led prices to boom.
