A joint research team of the Atomic Minerals Directorate (AMD) and Osmania University has discovered uranium reserves in the Srisailam forests in Andhra Pradesh, using latest paraphernalia for the detection of the radioactive element.

The team carried out research in a widely spread area around the Srisailam sub-basin of Kadapa super basin. According to sources, the uranium discovered is of superior quality and will definitely give a significant boost to nuclear power plants in the country.
