This subsequent arrangement concerns the retransfer of 85,758 g of U.S.-origin uranium, 16,946 g of which is in the isotope of U-235 (19.76 percent enrichment), in the form of low enriched uranium-silicide Open Pool Australian Lightwater (OPAL) research reactor fuel clad in aluminum, from the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation (ANSTO) in Lucas Heights, Sydney, Australia, to the Deposito de Materiales Nucleares (DEMANU) and/or Deposito de Uranio Enriquecido (DUE) warehouses of Comision Nacional de Energia Atomica (CNEA) in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The material, which is currently located at ANSTO's OPAL reactor, will be transferred to the CNEA DEMANU and/or DUE warehouses for storage and subsequent use in Argentine research reactors.
