VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/07/12 -- POWERTECH URANIUM CORP. ("Powertech" or the "Company") (Vancouver, B.C.) (TSX:PWE)(FRANKFURT:P8A) and Societe Belge de Combustibles Nucleaires SA ("Synatom") (Brussels, Belgium) are pleased to announce that Powertech elected to prepay an unsecured non-interest bearing promissory note in the principal amount of $7.5 million (the "Note") issued to Synatom on March 15, 2011. In accordance with the terms of the Note, it was repaid by the issuance of 12,500,000 common shares in the capital of Powertech (the "Conversion Shares") at a price of $0.60 per Conversion Share.

In addition, Powertech announces that it has completed its previously announced non-brokered private placement financing (the "Financing") of 10 million units (each, a "Unit") at a price of $0.10 per Unit for gross proceeds of $1 million. Each Unit consisted of one common share of the Company (each, a "Share") and one-half of one share purchase warrant (each, a "Warrant"). One whole Warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one additional Share at a price of $0.20 per Share for a period of one year from closing of the Financing. Insiders of the Company purchased an aggregate of 6,250,000 Units.

The proceeds of Financing will be used for working capital and to continue the permitting process for Dewey Burdock.

The securities issued in connection with the closing of the Financing are subject to a restricted period that expires on March 7, 2013.

The Company did not pay any finders' fees with respect to the Financing.

The Conversion Shares issued to Synatom represent 9.9% of the outstanding Shares, calculated on a non-diluted basis but including the Shares sold by Powertech in the Financing. After the acquisition of the 12,500,000 Conversion Shares referred to above, Synatom holds 23,390,000 Shares, representing approximately 18.6% of the outstanding Shares (calculated on a non-diluted basis but including the Shares issued in the Financing).
