World's largest producer of uranium

Kazakhstan increased its uranium output by about 9% to around 19,500 tonnes in the year 2011, consolidating its position as the world's largest producer of the metal with a 35%  share of global output, stated  nuclear firm Kazatomprom  on Friday.
Releasing its preliminary data, Kazakhstan's industry and new technologies ministry said on a few days ago that the Central Asian state's uranium output stood at "about 19,000 tonnes" in 2011.
Kazatomprom said that its own uranium output totalled 11,080 tonnes last year, accounting for 20 percent of the global production of the uranium.
It should be mentioned here that uranium is a dangerous source of producing electricity.
