Dr. Frank Houllis, CEO of Uranex, commented:

Today’s assays show Nachu is a world class project. Our project has proven its distinct advantage of having a high percentage of graphite flakes in the medium to jumbo categories. Recently in China it was repeatedly highlighted to us that there is a chronic shortage of large graphite flakes. With simple metallurgy we are able to produce a high grade marketable product.

With the exciting assays announced today we are taking all necessary steps to fast track our project into production.
