"Energy Fuels has a number of potentially game-changing opportunities in front of us, and I'm excited to talk about them at the 2020 LD Micro Virtual Conference," stated Curtis H. Moore, VP of Marketing & Corporate Development for Energy Fuels. "On February 10, 2020, it was announced that the President included $150 million per year for ten years in his FY-2021 budget proposal to create a new U.S. uranium reserve to support U.S. energy and national security. U.S. uranium mining and nuclear fuel are now priorities for the U.S. government for the first time in several decades. As the number one uranium producer in the U.S. for the past several years, Energy Fuels expects to benefit from this program and other potential government support. We hold three of America's key uranium production facilities, including the currently producing White Mesa Mill in Utah and Nichols Ranch in situ recovery ("ISR") facility in Wyoming, along with the recently-producing Alta Mesa ISR Facility in Texas, which is currently on standby. In addition, we are excited about multiple other unique opportunities in critical minerals offered by our White Mesa Mill, including vanadium production and the potential for rare earth element processing. Energy Fuels is the leading uranium miner in the U.S., and uranium production will always be our primary focus. However, we are unique among our peers in that we have several additional opportunities related to our uranium production that may allow us to diversify our business and potentially generate significant future cashflow."
"We are delighted to be hosting our third virtual event in order to showcase some of the truly unique names in micro-cap" stated Chris Lahiji, President of LD Micro. "There are many people and companies who are unable to attend our live events, due to any number of reasons, so we are happy to offer an additional way for companies to present to investors without taking a lot of time out of their day-to-day operations. While virtual events will never replace the experience of sitting in the same room as other humans, it is a great format for updating the investor community and getting increased exposure."
The conference will be held via webcast and will feature over 40 companies in the small / micro-cap space.
