Areva says to start output at Niger Imouraren mine in mid-2015

NIAMEY, March 7 (Reuters) - French nuclear group Areva will start uranium production from its Imouraren mine in Niger from mid-2015, Areva's senior executive vice-president of mining Olivier Wantz said on Thursday.

"We will start the first production of minerals from the Imouraren mine in mid-2015," Wantz told a news conference in Niamey. The mine was initially due to start production in 2012 but the date has been repeatedly pushed back.
