Energy Fuels Inc. (TSX-EFR) (“Energy Fuels” or the “Company“), an advanced uranium and vanadium development company, announced today that the Company has agreed to acquire a 100% interest in a block of ten mining claims (the Hollie Claims) in Emery County, Utah, from Titan Uranium Corp. Based on the amended technical report entitled “Magnum Uranium Corp.’s Deep Gold Uranium Deposit, Emery County, Utah” dated May 21, 2009 (filed on Sedar by Magnum Uranium on May 22, 2009), the Hollie Claims contain an indicated mineral resource of 983,300 pounds U3O8 from 158,200 tons at a grade of 0.311% U3O8. This resource was originally drilled on an approximate 100ft. x 100ft. grid by Pioneer-Uravan in the late 70’s with confirmation drilling done by Magnum Uranium in 2007.
The Hollie Claims, located about 120 miles from the site of Energy Fuels’ recently approved Piñon Ridge uranium mill, are surrounded by claims in the San Rafael uranium district acquired by the Company from Magnum Uranium in the merger completed June 30, 2009. The purchase price for the Hollie Claims will be satisfied by the issuance of 1,046,067 shares of Energy Fuels common stock.
Steve Antony, President and CEO of Energy Fuels stated that, “With the addition of these indicated resources to our existing San Rafael 43-101 compliant U3O8 mineral resource base of 1.4 million lbs. measured and indicated and 1.3 million lbs. inferred resources, we now have sufficient resources in place to justify a mine plan and further development of the San Rafael project. We feel that additional drilling will expand the resource in the area even further.”
Stephen P. Antony, President and CEO, and a Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101 has reviewed and approved the content of this press release.
