Uranium Energy Corp Completes Initial Phase of Resource Expansion Drilling Campaign in Wyoming as Part of Re-Start Program
Corpus Christi, TX, July 31, 2023 - Uranium Energy Corp (NYSE American: UEC; “UEC” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the completion of the initial phase of development and delineation drilling at its fully permitted Irigaray and Christensen Ranch In-Situ Recovery (“ISR”) Projects in Johnson County, Wyoming. The next phase of drilling will also occur within the Christensen Ranch permit boundary as well as prospective areas held by UEC near Christensen Ranch.
Amir Adnani, President and CEO stated: “As part of our production restart program, we have completed the first phase of the resource expansion campaign at our Irigaray and Christensen Ranch Projects. We are encouraged by the number and length of historic, under delineated and underdeveloped mineralized trends in numerous sands at these projects. This provides a unique opportunity to expand our current resources within the existing permit boundaries and directly enhances our production restart program.”
A total of 51 holes were drilled along known trends in the proposed Mine Unit 15 area of Irigaray and the underexplored areas south of Christensen Ranch Mine Unit 12 within the permit boundary.
Historic drilling in both areas was primarily wide-spaced fence patterns; the new drilling has increased the drill density which, in the proposed Irigaray Mine Unit 15 area, is expected to allow for an upgrade of current resources. The drilling program has also identified the oxidation/reduction (“O/R”) front which will assist in defining future resource delineation and development. Very encouraging GTs (Grade x Thickness) were intercepted, with the best hole exhibiting a 7.70 GT (21.5’ of 0.358%). Over 50% of the new holes drilled along the Irigaray trend are classified as ore holes (>0.3 GT). Post-drilling analysis of all results is in process.
Next Drilling Phase
The next phase of UEC’s resource expansion campaign will target areas with lateral resources thought to exist within the current Christensen permit boundary in the vicinity of the previously operated Mine Unit 5.
Background: UEC’s total resources in Wyoming contain the following S-K 1300 compliant resources:
- Total Measured and Indicated Resources disclosed across the assets are 66,198,200 lbs. in 58,460 thousand tons of ore.
- Total Inferred Resources disclosed across the assets are 15,053,700 lbs. in 10,859 thousand tons of ore.
- UEC’s new exploration and development efforts benefit from a large and proprietary data base of historic exploration drilling logs and reports containing over 83,000 logs covering over 37 million feet of drilling. This historic drilling was conducted by well-known exploration companies such as Union Carbide, Teton Exploration, Kerr McGee, United Nuclear and others.
