NYSE MKT Equities Exchange Symbol - UEC

  • Company Files Mine Permit and Aquifer Exemption Applications for the Burke Hollow ISR Project;

  • Previously announced 80-hole delineation drilling campaign has been completed and two new trends have been identified; and

  • Initial NI 43-101 resource estimate from early 2013 being updated.

CORPUS CHRISTI, TX, April 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ - Uranium Energy Corp (NYSE MKT: UEC, the "Company") is pleased to announce the filing of a Mine Permit Application and Aquifer Exemption Application for its Burke Hollow ISR Project in Bee County Texas. The applications were filed on April 11, 2014 with the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (the "TCEQ").

Amir Adnani, President and CEO, stated, "We are excited to have our third ISR project in South Texas reach the production permitting stage. The Burke Hollow project is an important part of our hub-and-spoke extraction strategy providing feed to our scalable Hobson Plant, which has a physical capacity of 2 million pounds per year. The recent $10M cash injection combined with the extension of our credit facility to 2016-2017 provides UEC with financial flexibility as well as a strong balance sheet and working capital position. This strong financial position combined with our deep project pipeline will enable UEC to opportunistically scale up low-cost uranium production from multiple projects as uranium prices increase."

The Burke Hollow Project is one of the Company's six uranium projects in South Texas. The project covers 17,510 acres and has a maiden NI 43-101 Inferred Resource Estimate of 2.9 million pounds grading 0.05% U3O8 and an exploration target of 1.8 to 7.2 million pounds grading between 0.03% and 0.06% U3O8.

The initial, maiden resource at Burke Hollow was calculated in an NI 43-101 Technical Report dated February 27, 2013. Subsequently, 80 additional delineation holes have been drilled, and two new mineralized trend extensions have been discovered. To date the Company has only explored 40% of the property.

In November 2013, the Company initiated an 80-hole delineation drilling campaign to better define the resource and to provide additional baseline water analyses for the Mine Permit and Aquifer Exemption Applications.  On February 27, 2014, the Company announced results from the first 42 holes of the current drilling campaign.  The Company has completed 30 regional baseline wells for the project thus far. The wells were analyzed as part of the accelerated permitting program for the Project.

While the two applications are being processed, work is accelerating on completing the other required applications: the radioactive material license, the waste disposal well and the air permit exemption. The Company anticipates that the radioactive material license and waste disposal well applications will be filed in calendar Q2 of this year.

The technical information in this news release has been prepared in accordance with the Canadian regulatory requirements set out in NI 43-101 and was reviewed by Clyde L. Yancey, P.G., Vice President-Exploration for the Company, a QP under NI 43-101.

Notice to U.S. Investors

The mineral resources referred to herein have been estimated in accordance with the definition standards on mineral resources of the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum referred to in NI 43-101 and are not compliant with U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") Industry Guide 7 guidelines. In addition, measured mineral resources, indicated mineral resources and inferred mineral resources, while recognized and required by Canadian regulations, are not defined terms under SEC Industry Guide 7 and are normally not permitted to be used in reports and registration statements filed with the SEC. Accordingly, we have not reported them in the United States. Investors are cautioned not to assume that any part or all of the mineral resources in these categories will ever be converted into mineral reserves. These terms have a great amount of uncertainty as to their existence, and great uncertainty as to their economic and legal feasibility. In particular, it should be noted that mineral resources which are not mineral reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability. It cannot be assumed that all or any part of measured mineral resources, indicated mineral resources or inferred mineral resources will ever be upgraded to a higher category. In accordance with Canadian rules, estimates of inferred mineral resources cannot form the basis of feasibility or other economic studies. Investors are cautioned not to assume that any part of the reported measured mineral resources, indicated mineral resources or inferred mineral resources referred to herein are economically or legally mineable.
