How is uranium made into nuclear fuel World

Uranium is found in small amounts in most rocks, and even in seawater. Uranium mines operate in many countries, but more than 85% of uranium is produced in six countries: Kazakhstan, Canada, Australia, Namibia, Niger, and Russia. Historically, conventional mines (e.g. open pit or underground) were the main source of uranium.
