Consolidated Uranium Inc. (" CUR ", the " Company " or " Consolidated Uranium ") (TSXV: CUR) (OTCQB: CURUF), is pleased to provide an update regarding recent developments of its planned spin-out of Labrador Uranium Inc. (" Labrador Uranium " or " LUR ") through a plan of arrangement under the Business Corporations Act (Ontario) (the " Arrangement "). LUR has expanded its land holdings in Labrador around its anticipated key projects as well as bolstered its technical team with several key appointments in preparation for an aggressive summer 2022 work program.

Stephen Keith, CEO of LUR, commented, "We are very pleased with our progress to date while we plan our 2022 exploration season and prepare to become a public company. Focusing on governance and strategy, LUR has assembled a strong prospective Board of Directors; and, with a focus on creating the greatest opportunity for exploration success, LUR has been able to attract a great geological brain trust as well as increasing and further consolidated its strategic land holdings in a well-known and significant mineral belt."

Current Projects and New Acquisitions

LUR's strategy is to consolidate and aggressively explore its land position in the Central Mineral Belt (" CMB ") of Labrador, Canada. In late 2021, LUR entered into several agreements to acquire the following projects:

  • Moran Lake Project: To be acquired from Consolidated Uranium. The project hosts historic uranium and vanadium mineral resources. Over $25 million has been spent on the project to date and holds further exploration potential;
  • Central Mineral Belt (CMB) Project: To be acquired from a wholly-owned subsidiary of Altius Minerals Corporation (" Altius "). This project includes approximately 125,000 hectares of land with more than 50 years of exploration data available. This project contains many known occurrences of uranium, copper, gold, iron and other elements identified in 140 targets;
  • Notakwanon Project: To be acquired from Altius. This is a near surface discovery with over 20 uranium occurrences at surface and grab samples yielding up to 3.5% U 3 O 8 ;
  • Mustang Lake joint venture interest (66%): To be acquired from Mega Uranium Ltd. This project is approximately 9.5 kilometers northeast of Paladin Energy's Michelin uranium deposit. Mustang Lake has seen historic drilling, has multiple uranium occurrences, and is also prospective for IOCG style mineralization.

LUR has recently added the following 683 claims (17,075 hectares) by staking and, when taken together with the above projects, LUR expects to hold a dominant land position in the CMB and surrounding area at Notakwanon:

  • 256 claims (6,400 hectares) located to the west of the Michelin uranium deposit with extension potential;
  • 120 claims (3,000 hectares) located around the Notakwanon Project, consolidating more land around this prospect;
  • 307 claims (7,675 hectares) in four map-staked licenses located to the north of the existing CMB claims covering prospective areas.

Energy Fuels  - Production Timeline May Be Moving Up. Price Target Raised

Energy Fuels - Production Timeline May Be Moving Up. Price Target Raised

Energy Fuels ships Uranium, Vanadium and Rare Earth Element (REE) Carbonate in the same week. The shipment of Vanadium is not unusual nor is the shipment of REE Concentrate although it is worth noting that shipments of both elements can be erratic. The shipment of Uranium to an enrichment center in Illinois does not represent sales, per se, but can be viewed as a sign that the company is getting closer to sales. While not significant by itself, the shipment all three elements in the same week represents a milestone for the company. Energy Fuels REE production is advancing. The company has begun producing a "more advanced" form of REE Carbonate. Importantly, it was achieved with existing operations and will set the stage for the company as it takes the next step of considering complete separation of Rare Earth Elements. Energy Fuels has already begun a pilot to evaluate the separation of heavy elements and has engaged a firm to explore the separation of light elements. At this point, we do not include the separation of elements in our models. However, we do assume a growing level of REE Carbonate production. Uranium prices are soaring. Spot uranium prices have risen to $63 per pound. When we began covering Energy Fuels and the uranium industry a few years ago, prices were near $30, a price too low to justify production. We believe Energy Fuels is able to produce Uranium at a cost near $40/lb. at its White Mesa plant. A key test for Energy Fuel and other uranium companies will be whether or not consumers (electric utilities) will begin to sign long-term contracts. Production is moving forward. We are raising our price target. Rising uranium prices lead to to believe that the company is close to signing a contract and restarting uranium sales. In addition to raising our uranium price forecast to $60/lb. in 2022 and rising $5/lb. annually until hitting $80/lb., we now expect the company to begin selling uranium in 2023 instead of 2024. We have also accelerated our expectations regarding REE Carbonate sales to levels in line with management projections given recent developments. The combined impact of the aforementioned adjustments increased our estimated fair value for the stock to $13 per share from $9 per share and our price target accordingly. Read More >>

Uranium Stockpiling: The Rise of Nationalism or an Energy Security Effort?

Since 2019, energy security has become one of the most pressing issues facing countries around the globe, with COVID-19 showcasing how fragile interconnected supply chains can be amid a global health crisis.

This was evidenced again when Russia invaded Ukraine, putting Europe's oil and gas supply in limbo.

While these recent issues have brought discussions around energy security to the forefront, questions about long-term, sustainable energy supply have been growing for a long time. In 2020, then-US President Donald Trump proposed the building of a strategic uranium stockpile that would be supplied by domestically mined uranium.
