The post Here’s why the Deep Yellow (ASX:DYL) share price is up 50% this month appeared first on The Motley Fool Australia. –

The Deep Yellow Limited (ASX: DYL) share price joins the growing list of booming ASX uranium shares, surging 53.8% in September. This marks an 8-year high of $1.215.

Deep Yellow is a uranium explorer operating out of Namibia. Its growth strategy is to “establish a multi-platform, 5-10 million lb per annum, low-cost, tier one uranium producer.”

What’s so special about this uranium company?

Deep Yellow has been kicking goals at its flagship Tumas Project. The miner is expecting to complete a definitive feasibility study in the second half of 2022.

The company has described the Tumas Project as “similar to Langer Heinrich deposit and very well understood by the Deep Yellow team.”

Langer Heinrich is owned by the largest ASX-listed uranium player, Paladin Energy Ltd (ASX: PDN).

Deep Yellow has discovered multiple deposits in recent months, with successful drilling announcements in July and August.

Over the past four years of exploration, Deep Yellow has increased the Tumas mineral resource fourfold.

Even then, the company says that only 60% of its 125km highly prospective palaeochannel system has been tested. And thus, “significant growth upside remains.”

What’s driving the Deep Yellow share price?

Uranium spot prices are up more than 60% since mid-July, marking 7-year highs of $42.50 last week.

The sudden spike in uranium prices has largely been driven by Sprott Inc and its Physical Uranium Trust (SPUT).

Sprott has been aggressively buying physical uranium off the spot market. This has driven tightness in supply and renewed investor interest in the energy metal.

According to Bloomberg, the fund has amassed over 24 million lb by 8 September.

The relentless buying action picked up on Wednesday, with the fund adding another 1.25 million lbs.
