US DOE sells 200 tons of uranium hexafluoride

Reuters Oct 4 - The average price for all offers received was $213.48 
per kilogram, the DOE said in a release.

Successful buyers included subsidiaries of FPL Group Inc (FPL.N: 
Quote, Profile, Research), Exelon Corp (EXC.N: Quote, Profile, 
Research) and Progress Energy Inc.(PGN.N: Quote, Profile, Research).

Since peaking at $136 per pound in June, uranium oxide (U3O8), or raw 
uranium, used in the manufacture of uranium hexafluoride, now sells 
for about $80 per pound.

The DOE sold the uranium in eight separate lots of 100 metric ton (1 
lot), 30 metric tons (2 lots), and 7.7 metric tons (5 lots) with 
delivery to be made at the Paducah, Kentucky Gaseous Diffusion Plant.
