French nuclear group Orano's uranium mine in Niger to close in 2021

NIAMEY, Oct 23 (Reuters) - French nuclear group Orano's COMINAK uranium mine in Niger will shut down in March 2021 due to the depletion of its reserves, the mine's board of directors said on Wednesday.

Orano, which was known as Areva until last year, holds a 34% stake in the mine, the largest in a joint venture with a Nigerien state mining company and two foreign companies. (Reporting by Boureima Balima; Writing by Aaron Ross; Editing by Chris Reese)
