Powertech Uranium (Azarga Uranium) Enters Into Data Purchase Agreement for Dewey-Burdock Project

GREENWOOD VILLAGE, CO -- (Marketwired) -- 07/16/14 -- Powertech Uranium Corp. (TSX: PWE), pending a change of name to Azarga Uranium Corp. upon receipt of the requisite approvals ("Powertech" or the "Company"), announces that it has entered into a Transfer, Bill of Sale and Assignment Agreement dated May 9, 2014 (the "Data Purchase Agreement") with Energy Fuels Resources (USA) Inc. ("Energy Fuels"), whereby the Company has agreed to purchase certain data (the "Data") concerning the Dewey Burdock uranium property located in Fall River and Custer Counties, South Dakota from Energy Fuels.

In consideration for the transfer and conveyance of the Data, the Company has agreed to pay to Energy Fuels a total purchase price of US$200,000 (the "Purchase Price") on the terms and conditions of the Data Purchase Agreement, which Purchase Price was payable as follows: (a) a down payment of US$100,000 payable in common shares of the Company (collectively, the "Payment Shares"), with the number of Payment Shares to be allotted and issued calculated based on the volume weighted average price for the five trading days immediately preceding the date of payment or as otherwise required by the Toronto Stock Exchange ("TSX"), and (b) US$100,000 payable in cash no later than August 15, 2014, provided that if, at the end of the four month statutory hold period on the Payment Shares (the "Hold Period") which commences on the date of issuance of the Payment Shares, the aggregate value of the Payment Shares, based upon the volume weighted average price for the five trading days immediately preceding the last day of the Hold Period (the "Share Value"), is less than US$100,000, then the Company shall promptly pay in cash to Energy Fuels the difference between US$100,000 less the Share Value.

The Company has issued 1,745,902 Payment Shares at a deemed price of $0.061 per Payment Share and intends to pay US$100,000 to Energy Fuels in satisfaction of the Purchase Price on August 15, 2014 in accordance with the Data Purchase Agreement. The Payment Shares are subject to a Hold Period expiring on November 10, 2014. The Company and Energy Fuels have an arm's length relationship. The Data Purchase Agreement and transactions contemplated thereby, including issuance of the Payment Shares, have been approved by the TSX.

The data being acquired consists of historical drill hole logs and maps prepared by the Tennessee Valley Authority from the 1970's and 1980's when the Dewey Burdock uranium deposit was originally discovered as well as digitized data generated from this work. This data is expected to assist Powertech's planning of wellfields for the Dewey Burdock uranium property by providing additional quality data to complement Powertech's existing database.
