The Australian Uranium Association (AUA) says Mr Rudd's comments on business regulation reform could indicate bans on uranium mining in Queensland will be lifted.
There are 25 uranium deposits near Mount Isa, in the state's north-west, worth about $4 billion.
AUA executive director Michael Angwin is hopeful the reforms could be a breakthrough for the industry.
"Mr Rudd is the architect of the ALP's uranium policy which is to allow the industry to expand," he said.
