Determines the monetary value of depleted uranium tails, here defined as the value that can be realized (in times of high uranium market prices) by re-enrichment to natural-equivalent uranium.

Enter amount of depleted uranium input in the Material Balance, modify parameters, as required, and click the "Calculate" button below. HELP
"t" means metric tonne.
