October 7, 2008
As a result of a review by the Ontario Securities Commission, Energy Fuels Inc. (“Energy Fuels” or “the Company”) is issuing the following news release to clarify previous disclosures.
Earlier in 2008, Energy Fuels disclosed by way of two separate news releases, data placing an indicative value on a ton of in-place resource and on a potential revenue stream that does not comply with Section 4.2 (1) (j) of NI 43-101. These disclosures were deemed by OSC to be non-compliant.
The specific disclosures being addressed are:
- In a press release dated March 12, 2008, which advised the public that Energy Fuels had acquired the mining permit for its Energy Queen Mine, the Company stated that, “each ton of Energy Queen production is valued at almost US$800.00.”
- In a press release dated September 11, 2008, which advised the public that Energy Fuels acquired the US Bureau of Land Management permit approval for its Whirlwind Mine, the Company stated that, “At today’s published prices, these two mines, (Whirlwind and Energy Queen) when fully developed could generate revenue of US$75 million per year for Energy Fuels.”
Energy Fuels wishes to retract both its previous disclosures regarding the economic outcome of its Energy Queen and Whirlwind Mine properties.
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.
