The Board of Directors (the "Board"), on recommendation (after detailed review) of the Corporate Governance & Nominating Committee, approved the individuals nominated to shareholders for election to serve as directors of the Board and is confident of their suitability to serve on the Board and its Committees.  The Company was advised that proxy advisory firm Institutional Shareholder Services ("ISS") recommended a "withhold" vote against Mr. Hochstein, which is believed to have impacted the voting results at the Meeting.  According to their reporting, ISS has taken the position that Mr. Hochstein is not independent due to his prior role as CEO of the Company 6 years ago.  Mr. Hochstein has served as President and CEO of Lundin Gold Inc. since 2014, resigning as CEO of the Company in March 2015.

Mr. Hochstein played an important role in the development of Denison during his tenure as CEO and during that time acquired considerable specialized knowledge of the uranium mining industry – which together with his breadth of technical and practical experience in the mining industry provides great value to Denison.  Since Mr. Hochstein's resignation in 2015, the Company's asset base, management team, and strategy, have changed substantially.  Accordingly, it is the position of the Board that Mr. Hochstein's prior executive positions with Denison do not interfere with his ability to exercise independent judgment as a member of Denison's Board.

The Company has provided more details on the results of all matters considered at the Meeting in its Report of Voting Results filed under its profile on SEDAR at www.sedar.com and EDGAR at www.sec.gov/edgar .

Together, those three nations accounted for over two-thirds of uranium mining, with Kazakhstan taking a 41 percent share. Additionally, a wide variety of uranium-mining companies contribute to the world's production.

But where in the world are the top uranium mines? While many of them are located in Kazakhstan, Canada and Australia, that's not the case for all of the largest uranium mines.

Paul Goranson, enCore's Chief Executive Officer said, "The progress of enCore's efforts in South Texas has been exceptional. Using our own in-house technical staff, we are executing our strategy targeting completion of the Rosita upgrades by the end of the second quarter 2022 and wellfield commissioning in the first half of 2023 with projects on schedule and on budget. As we advance our plans in South Texas and accelerate activities on the key Dewey Burdock and Gas Hills projects from the shareholder approved acquisition of Azarga Uranium, enCore is well on its way to being America's premier ISR uranium producer."
