Uranium Energy Corp Files SK-1300 Technical Report Summary Disclosing Resources for Its Yuty Project in Paraguay

  • Total Disclosed Indicated Resource for Yuty is 8,962,000 lbs with 9,074,000 tons grading 0.049% U3O
  • Total Disclosed Inferred Resource for Yuty is 2,203,000 lbs with 2,733,000 tons grading 0.040% U3O8

Corpus Christi, TX, July 20, 2022 - Uranium Energy Corp (NYSE American: UEC; “UEC” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has filed a Technical Report Summary (“TRS”) on EDGAR, disclosing mineral resources for the Company’s Yuty Project in Paraguay (the “Project”).  These mineral resources are based on 543 drill holes.


  • As a U.S. domestic and domiciled company, UEC is now reporting all mineral resources in accordance with Item 1302 of Regulation S-K (“S-K 1300”);
  • S-K 1300 was adopted by the SEC to modernize mineral property disclosure requirements for mining registrants and to align U.S. disclosure requirements more closely for mineral properties with current industry and global regulatory standards;
  • The mineral resource estimates set forth in this TRS have not previously been reported under the S-K 1300 format; and
  • The Yuty project geology is considered amenable to low-cost, environmentally friendly In-Situ Recovery (“ISR”) mining methods.

The TRS was prepared under S-K 1300 and was filed on July 19, 2022, with the SEC through EDGAR on Form 8-K and is also available on SEDAR as a “Material Document” filed on July 19, 2022. The TRS was prepared on behalf of the Company by Douglas L. Beahm, P.E., P.G., Principal Engineer of BRS Engineering, by Clyde L. Yancey, P.G., Vice President of Exploration of UEC, and by Victor Fernandez-Crosa, Paraguay Country Manager for UEC.

Clyde Yancey, Vice President of Exploration, stated: “We are very pleased with the update and conversion of our Yuty Project NI 43-101 resources into new SEC S-K 1300 resources. The roll front geology apparent in the Yuty Project is very similar to our South Texas and Wyoming projects and offers excellent low-cost, environmentally friendly ISR mining capability. While our near-term priorities remain focused on Texas and Wyoming ISR production platforms, Yuty presents attractive long-term value and potential which is a great fit for our technical capabilities. As the world pushes for clean, safe, reliable energy, more uranium will be needed to fuel its growth and we are confident the Yuty Project will be part of that equation.”

About the Yuty Project

The Yuty Project is located in Paraguay, South America.  The Company operates the Project through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Transandes Paraguay S.A., which holds a 100% interest in the Yuty Mining Exploration and Exploitation Concession (Yuty Concession) Contract (the “Contract”). The planned mining method for the Project is by ISR mining.

The Project comprises 117,232 hectares in southeastern Paraguay. Title to the Yuty Concession is now held through the Contract with the Republic of Paraguay (the “Republic”), which grants mining rights for a minimum period of 20 years.

The Project area is located within the Paraná Basin and is underlain by predominantly sedimentary rocks of undivided upper Permo-Carboniferous age. Uranium mineralization is sandstone hosted roll front type.

The area was explored extensively by Anschutz Corporation, of Denver, Colorado, in the late 1970s and early 1980s. Cue Resources Ltd. controlled the Project prior to acquisition by UEC and conducted exploration and verification drilling projects circa 2007 through 2011. UEC possesses the original drill data, from which a drill hole database has been developed and verified. Samples from Anschutz were not preserved, however, core samples from the area in the possession of UEC have been reviewed by the authors. Within the Project area, drill data from 543 drill holes, including hole location and radiometric equivalent data in 0.1 m downhole increments, were available for the preparation of the initial assessment as set forth in the TRS (the “IA”).

Mineral Resources

This IA for the Project has been prepared in accordance with the regulations set forth in S-K 1300 with the objective  of disclosing the mineral resources at the Project.

Based on the density of drilling, continuity of geology and mineralization, testing and data verification, the mineral resource estimates meet the criteria for indicated or inferred mineral resources as summarized herein.

Estimated mineral resources are summarized in the following table for Indicated and Inferred Mineral Resources, respectively, at a 0.02 %eU3O8 grade cutoff and a 0.1 ft% GT cutoff.  Mineral Resources were estimated separately for each mineralized horizon.   Mineral Resources are not mineral reserves and do not have demonstrated economic viability. However, considerations of reasonable prospects for eventual economic extraction were applied to the Mineral Resource calculations herein.
