Legislators support study on uranium potentials in W Kalimantan

Indonesian House of Representatives` Commission VII expressed support here on Friday to the National Nuclear Power Agency`s (Batan) plan to continue studying the potential of uranium reserve in the West Kalimantan village of Kallan in the district of Melawi.

"We have already been determined to "go nuclear" in 2016 and therefore the spirit has to be maintained consistently. The country must not rely upon other countries for the raw materials for producing the strategic primary energy source as reliance will only make the country dependent," a member of the commission that deals with energy affairs, Tjatur Sapto Edy, said to ANTARA News.

He admitted that uranium as a raw material for producing energy was not yet economical but he believed it would continue to be in the future.
