May 8, 2007
Acquisition Further Expands the Company’s Extensive US Uranium Exploration Database
AUSTIN, TX – May 8, 2007 – Uranium Energy Corp announces that it has acquired the exclusive rights to a uranium development database covering the recently-acquired 6,700 acre Cebolleta property, located in the Grants Mineral District, New Mexico, which contains 20.65 million pounds of historically drill-indicated resources. Uranium Energy Corp retains a 49% interest in the Cebolleta property. For more information about this recent property acquisition, please see the Company’s news release dated May 1, 2007.
The database consists of 601,486 feet of drill logs from 996 holes, drill hole location maps, geological and mine planning maps, various geological and mining reports, and surface and underground mine facility designs that were essential to the past-producing JJ Number 1/L-Bar uranium mining and milling complex. Underground long-hole drilling information included in the database corroborates the historically drill-indicated uranium resource associated with the JJ Number 1/ L-Bar mine. The locations of multiple pre-existing mine shafts and underground access ways to uranium mineralized zones are also detailed.
This database was compiled by the Standard Oil Company of Ohio (SOHIO) during the course of their development and production at JJ Number 1/L-Bar. It comes to Uranium Energy Corp by way of Paul Pierce, the Company’s recently-hired Manager of Mine Production. Mr. Pierce was employed by SOHIO from 1981 to 1986 as Senior Mining Engineer and Resource Development Specialist at the L-Bar operations. Mr. Pierce has exceptional understanding of this data, and of this property.
