Late this month, Nordion entered into negotiations with the Russian 
Federation's Research Institute of Atomic Reactors for the direct 
supply of Mo-99 (not targets). It doesn't look as if the MAPLE 
reactors at Atomic Energy of Canada's Chalk River Labs will be 
commissioned any time soon - if ever.
