U3O8 Corp. to Renew Shareholders Rights Plan

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 05/09/14 -- U3O8 Corp. (TSX:UWE)(OTCQX:UWEFF), a Canadian-based company focused on exploration and development of uranium resources and associated commodities in South America, announced that its Board of Directors (the "Board") has adopted a resolution to renew its current shareholders rights plan, which is due to expire on May 25, 2014.

U3O8 Corp. has had a shareholders rights plan in place since 2008 (the "2008 Plan"). The 2014 shareholders rights plan (the "2014 Plan") is substantially similar to, and maintains the protection afforded to shareholders under the 2008 Plan and was not adopted in response to any anticipated take-over bid.

The 2014 Plan is effective immediately and will be submitted for shareholder approval at U3O8 Corp's 2014 annual meeting. A complete copy of the 2014 Plan will be filed on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.

The Plan encourages fair treatment of shareholders should a take-over bid be made for U3O8 Corp., and will provide the Company's Board and shareholders more time to consider an unsolicited take-over bid for U3O8 Corp. The Plan is intended to discourage coercive or unfair take-over bids and gives the Board time to pursue alternatives to maximize shareholder's value, if appropriate, in the event of an unsolicited take-over bid.

About U3O8 Corp.

U3O8 Corp. is focused on exploration and development of uranium resources and associated commodities in South America. The company's uranium resources comprise three deposits defined in accordance with National Instrument 43-101 located in Colombia, Argentina and Guyana:


--  Berlin Deposit, Colombia - a preliminary economic assessment ("PEA")
    shows that Berlin could be a zero cash cost uranium producer thanks to
    revenue from by-products of phosphate, vanadium, nickel, rare earths
    (yttrium and neodymium) and other metals occurring in the same deposit; 
    
--  Laguna Salada Deposit, Argentina - a PEA is due shortly on this near
    surface, free-digging uranium, vanadium deposit that is potentially
    amenable to low-cost mining and processing methods; and 
    
--  Kurupung Deposit, Guyana - an initial uranium deposit in a large
    emerging uranium district. 

U3O8 Corp. also recently announced an opportunity with potential to generate modest cash flow in the short-term from the Carina property in Argentina - various options are being evaluated to maximize this non-core asset that offers near-term production prospects for frac sand for potential use in the shale oil and gas industry.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
