Hi, Jessica.

I have to ask: What are you doing that natural uranium is a consumable?  I mean, we have a couple of chunks here in our display case, and at some of us have items with U-nat in them that we use for show-and-tell, but we haven't needed more in 25+ years.

Just curious.

Subject: [ RadSafe ] Seeking Uranium Supplier

We are currently having a hard time finding a supplier for natural uranium that has the appropriate license to ship the material to our laboratory in the US. In 2013 the licensing requirements were changed on the supplier side and we cannot order from Eckert and Ziegler like we have for the past 20+ years.

We possess an NRC byproduct license and a general license for natural uranium. We are a drinking water laboratory and I'm hoping someone can help me find a different supplier for natural uranium. NIST currently has no stock. The list of suppliers that was posted a couple of months ago has not yielded any hits. Any suggestions are appreciated.
