Uranium mining company Energy Resources of Australia (ASX:ERA) has announced that its production fell 22% in Q4 to 4.2 million tonnes, due to delays while safety work is conducted.
Ore mined, meanwhile, declined 63% year-on-year due to unavoidable mine sequencing effects – a trend that is likely to continue into 1H10.
But the company added that it had soled a record 5,497 tonnes of uranium oxide throughout 2009, with the average price for the year growing 56% to $50.84 per pound.
ERA shares have fallen 2.4% today to $22.35.
