The Deep Yellow Limited (ASX: DYL) share price has surged more than 24% in today’s session.

Shares in the uranium explorer have fired to record highs as the uranium sector heats up.

Let’s take a closer look at the Deep Yellow share price.  

What’s propelling the Deep Yellow share price higher?

Deep Yellow has not released any price-sensitive news to explain today’s eccentric price action.

Instead, shares in the uranium explorer have propelled higher thanks to a single catalyst.

The uranium sector as a whole has been on fire recently as spot uranium prices soar to 7-year highs.

Following a prolonged bear market, the uranium spot price has bolted in the past month to hit highs of approximately US$35/lb.  

A major driver has been the aggressive buying of the world’s largest uranium fund, Sprott Physical Uranium Trust.

As a result, the resurgence of spot prices has initiated a buying frenzy for ASX shares in the uranium sector such as Deep Yellow.
