Uranium boom.

The price of uranium, which is the metal used in nuclear reactors, has risen 233% in the past five years, which is more than three times the rise in price of gold or copper, Bloomberg reports.

This fascinating feature takes readers to the uranium mining camp in Saskatchewan of NexGen Energy, which has a market value of $4 billion even though it isn't expected to sell uranium until 2028.
