One of the mining stocks to have come to the attention of investors in recent times is that of Denison Mines (NYSE: DNN).
The company may be primarily involved in the uranium space but it is also necessary to note that there is much more to it than just uranium. One of the most important things to note is that Uranium is the main item that is needed for nuclear reactors and at a time when the power demand is rising globally, nuclear power could eventually prove to be important in the future.
While it is true that nuclear power does not have a good reputation due to certain disasters, it is also important to note that there are certain advantages as well. Nuclear power is renewable and more importantly does not produce greenhouse gases. Hence, it could well be an alternative in the future when power demands become difficult to meet. Uranium demands will rise and that could bring the Denison Mines stock into play.
