Energy Fuels Inc. (TSX-EFR) (“Energy Fuels” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that the merger of Energy Fuels and Magnum Uranium Corp. was successfully completed effective June 30, 2009. With the closing of this transaction, Magnum shareholders became shareholders of Energy Fuels on the basis of 0.78 shares of Energy Fuels for each Magnum common share held.
As previously reported, this transaction provides Energy Fuels with significantly more resource to develop for mill feed at the Company’s Piñon Ridge mill, and more cash to develop the mill and mines. Additionally, the Company now has a Wyoming ISR property with exciting potential and is a partner in an exploration project in Canada’s Athabasca Basin. This addition of assets provides a broader platform and a significant first step for additional consolidation in Energy Fuel’s area of interest.
Energy Fuels’ President & CEO, George Glasier said at closing, “We welcome the former shareholders of Magnum Uranium as shareholders of Energy Fuels. We know that the resources formerly held by Magnum will be developed profitably for the uranium market more quickly through the combination with Energy Fuels, than through any other method.”
Stephen P. Antony, P.E., a Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101, has reviewed and approved the content of this press release.
