Ur-Energy Completes Amendment to RMBAH Loan Facility

LITTLETON, Colo., March 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Ur-Energy Inc. (TSX:URE, NYSE MKT:URG)  ("Ur-Energy" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the completion of an amendment to the secured loan facility (the "Amended Loan Facility") with RMB Australia Holdings Limited ("RMBAH") (see also Press Release December 23, 2013). 

Ur-Energy.

The Amended Loan Facility makes available another US$1.5 million in addition to the $5.0 million that the Company drew down in December 2013, which enabled the acquisition of Pathfinder Mines Corporation.  The repayment schedule has been extended from one year to two years, effectively lowering the quarterly principal and interest payments. The first of eight quarterly repayments of principal and interest was deferred from March 2014 to June 2014 and the Amended Loan Facility will now mature in March 2016.  The interest rate was amended to a rate of LIBOR plus 8.5% per annum, calculated quarterly. 

Roger Smith, CFO of the Company, stated, "We would again like to express our appreciation to RMB for its commitment to our projects and our Company.  We continue to value our relationship with this well-respected banking partner, as we work to achieve our strategic goals at Lost Creek and Shirley Basin." 

The Amended Loan Facility also will permit the Company to draw down an additional US$3.5 million following the completion of an independent NI 43-101 mineral resource estimate at its newly-acquired Pathfinder Shirley Basin Project.  This second tranche of funding is being made available to the Company on a revolving basis throughout the term of the loan facility and is intended to provide flexibility during the development of the Shirley Basin Project. The Company is currently engaged in a review of the historical geologic and engineering data and reports from Shirley Basin. The Company also commenced a limited drill program of confirmatory holes in February related to the preparation of the NI 43-101 report.

The Amended Loan Facility includes a security interest over the Pathfinder assets and other customary terms as set forth in the transaction documents.  The proceeds are available to the Company both for the development of Shirley Basin and for other general corporate and working capital purposes.
