Details of the Deal

The acquisition price is comprised of approximately $240,000 in cash paid to Nuinsco, and 139,418 common shares issued to Nuinsco and 25,349 common shares issued to the original Project property owner, at a deemed issuance price of $1.60 per common share. The acquisition is expected to preserve balance sheet flexibility in the bottom of the uranium cycle at less than 0.1% dilution to current UEC's shareholders.

Nuinsco intends to use the proceeds from the sale principally to add new exploration and development properties to its project portfolio and to facilitate the relisting of the Company's shares on a Canadian stock exchange as soon as possible.

Project is an Excellent Addition to Uranium Energy's Pipeline of Exploration Properties

Clyde Yancey, Vice President-Exploration of Uranium Energy, stated that the Company's acquisition strategy focuses on low-cost, high value projects, the Diabase project is consistent with those objectives and Uranium Energy gains an opportunistic foothold in the Athabasca Basin.

Clyde further added that the project is an excellent addition to the Company's pipeline of exploration properties for future development in a premier uranium district.
