Bungle of the week
The Bungle this week is a collective award to the various parties around the world who are gaining leverage by serving up anti-science fear about the release of Tritium water from Fukushima. This ranges from the usual tired old suspects (anti-nuclear types who long ago forewent any respect for science) to Korean trade unionists.
This is despite an IAEA safety review concluding that Japan’s plan to release treated water stored at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power station into the sea are consistent with IAEA Safety Standards.
However, there is a serious side to this bungle as the hysteria may be used as a diplomatic tool by the Chinese, who are not terribly comfortable with the warming of diplomatic relations between Seoul and Tokyo.
Question of the week
‘What do you make of CNUC going back into Niger?’
Tweet of the week
The English translation of his thread follows:
Dear people, I was a (rather active) nuclear opponent for decades. Now it's time to take note of a few facts: No other country shut down its nuclear power plants prematurely in the middle of the climate and energy crisis. The trend is towards extending the term./2
Numerous industrialized countries see nuclear power & renewables as complementary. Massive investments are again being made in R&D for the further development of nuclear energy. Whether this will lead to a new wave of investment remains to be seen. /3
There are still good reasons to decide against nuclear power. But this path is also associated with high costs and risks. Instead of praying down old certainties, we should re-evaluate things. The head is round so that thinking can change direction. /4
Addendum: I am well aware that the share of nuclear power in global electricity production is falling while the expansion of renewable energy is growing exponentially. Nevertheless, in view of climate change, we chose the wrong order with "nuclear phase-out first". /5
The primary goal must be to phase out coal, oil and natural gas. What complementary role nuclear energy will play in a climate-neutral energy system is an open question. In the EU + other industrialized countries, a combination of sun, wind, hydropower + nuclear power is emerging. /6
Moonshots & Fizzers
Will Canada become global leaders in Nuclear Energy?
In the latest pro-nuclear development in Canada, the Ontario government announced support to advance the long-term planning and consultation work required to explore nuclear expansion options on the Bruce Power site. It intends to create the largest nuclear power plant in the world with the addition of up to 4.8GWe to the plant’s already installed 6.2GWe capacity.
For the record, Canada is already a leader in many respects. The only risk of a fizzer is from a relatively similar country and economy that seems to be going in precisely the opposite direction: Australia.

Nickel prices hanging in similar $20,500 - $21,000 range. LME Inventories after bump up showing decline again at very low levels - 40,000 tonnes
Indonesia Investment Minister Bahlil Lahadalia on Friday gave the latest updates on Indonesia’s proposal for a global nickel cartel, saying that it has had intense talks with some unnamed countries. Resource-rich Indonesia has been proposing a group of nickel-producing countries that operates in a similar manner to the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (Opec). The Opec says it aims to coordinate the petroleum policies of its member states and keep the oil markets stable. And Indonesia wants to see a similar group for nickel, which is a key ingredient for electric vehicle (EV) batteries. "There are three countries whom we already have been intensely communicating with," Bahlil told reporters in Jakarta on Friday, commenting on the progress of the Opec-style nickel group. The minister, however, refused to disclose the name of the said countries. When asked about their initial response to the plan, Bahlil said: "[they thought] it was a great idea, but we still need to work on the details of the proposal." The Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) recently revealed that about 5.3 million tonnes of nickel ore from Indonesia were sent illegally to China from January 2020 to June 2022.

Interview with Tom Meyer, President & CEO of Archer Exploration (CSE: RCHR)
Recording date: 6th July 2023
Archer Exploration (RCHR) is a leading nickel exploration and development company with a strong emphasis on the Canadian market. Headed by Tom Meyer, the company's President and CEO, Archer Exploration focuses on two key projects in their portfolio. One of these projects is the Grasset project, situated in Quebec, while the other comprises a large land package of nickel exploration projects in the Sudbury Camp.
Tom Meyer brings a wealth of experience to the company, having worked as a metallurgist and mining analyst in the past. His background includes working for prominent consulting firms, as well as renowned mining companies like Inco (now Vale) and Falconbridge (now Glencore). With his expertise, Tom Meyer possesses a deep understanding of mineral processing and nickel minerals in Canada.
Archer Exploration's flagship asset is the Grasset project, located in the Abitibi region of Quebec. This project gained significant attention in 2012 when nickel was accidentally discovered during gold exploration activities. Previously owned by Balmoral, the project became non-core when it was acquired by Walbridge, which focused primarily on gold assets. Recognizing the potential value of the Grasset project, Archer Exploration seized the opportunity to acquire it from Walbridge.
The Grasset project stands out due to its high-grade nickel sulfides and exceptionally low carbon footprint. It offers a cleaner and more stable source of nickel compared to laterite deposits in Southeast Asia, which often present environmental challenges. Archer Exploration aims to expand the resource base at Grasset by drilling deeper and defining additional nickel units. The company plans to double the intersection depth below the existing resource, potentially reaching depths of 1,200 to 1,500 meters.
Despite temporary pauses in operations due to forest fires in Quebec, Archer remains committed to advancing its exploration efforts at Grasset. Over the next six months, the company aims to complete its drilling program, incorporate data from various drilling techniques, and refine the geological model. Archer Exploration's comprehensive approach positions it as a promising player in the Canadian nickel market, with significant potential for resource growth and value creation.
