The statistics featured below were originally featured in the facts + figures section of BlatantWorld.com. The data itself was sourced from the WISE Uranium Project, regarded by some as the most accurate and up-to-date list of Depleted Uranium stocks around the World.
As this is the latest data available, we can only be sure of 1 thing; that these stockpiles have grown, and they are most probably substantially larger than what the figures quoted below represent.
