Various locations in Mymensingh and Sylhet division as well as Kurigram district contain sizable Uranium diposits, specially river beds and hilly areas. Some locations contain Uranium at a rate of 9 percent per million soil parts. Commercial exploitation is viable when Uranium parts exceed 7 percent. Bangladesh govt. established an authority to mine Uranium which would be useful to run Bangladesh's under construction Nuclear power plant.
