FUELING THE FUTURE

Encore Energy Corp. (" enCore " or the " Company ") (NYSE American: EU) (TSXV: EU) announced today that it has made a formal production decision for the resumption of uranium production from the Alta Mesa Processing Plant ("Alta Mesa" or "Plant) in early 2024. Alta Mesa will be enCore's second producing location following resumption of uranium production at the South Texas Rosita Uranium Processing Plant ("Rosita") scheduled for 2023.

Work underway at the Alta Mesa Processing Plant includes the construction of equipment staging areas and drill pads in the fully permitted Production Authorization Area (PAA), planned for initial production due to its proximal location adjacent to the Plant. Development drilling, production and injection well installation will start this month. Concurrently, enCore's technical staff are identifying equipment maintenance and limited repair needs at the Alta Mesa Processing Plant involving the ion exchange system, uranium precipitation, drying and packaging circuits in order to restart production after having been on standby since 2013.

Alta Mesa Processing Plant and Project highlights include:

  • The Alta Mesa Processing Plant is enCore's third fully licensed production facility, along with Rosita and Kingsville Dome, all located in the business-friendly state of Texas . There are only 11 licensed and constructed uranium production facilities in all of the United States (US);

  • The Alta Mesa Processing Plant can reach commercial production levels with limited required capital, from funds on hand, within an estimated 10 months of today's announced production decision;

  • Advancing the Alta Mesa Processing Plant, in conjunction with planned production in 2023 at the Rosita Uranium Processing Plant, will cement enCore Energy's position as the early leader in In-Situ Recovery (ISR) uranium production in the US;

  • Alta Mesa's operations are located on private land, with 100% of minerals privately owned, and in a supportive jurisdiction with primary regulatory authority residing with the State of Texas ;

  • The Alta Mesa Processing Plant utilizes well-known ISR technology to extract uranium in a non-invasive process through the use of natural groundwater and oxygen, coupled with a proven ion exchange process, to recover the uranium.

Paul Goranson , the Company's Chief Executive Officer said, "My previous experience includes building and successfully operating Alta Mesa. I am confident that we have everything necessary within our control for a production restart, and enCore can quickly advance the project. The enCore team began initial assessment work in November 2022 , preparing for the start of work immediately following the closing of the acquisition of the Alta Mesa Processing Plant and Project. It is an exciting time at enCore. Our 2023 startup of production at Rosita and now, the decision to proceed at Alta Mesa, will bring a reliable domestic low carbon energy source to South Texas and the United States when it is most needed."

Alta Mesa Processing Plant and Project

The Alta Mesa project is a fully licensed and constructed ISR uranium project and central processing facility currently on standby, located on over 203,000 acres of private land in the state of Texas . Total operating capacity is 1.5 million lbs U 3 O 8 (uranium) per year. Alta Mesa historically produced nearly 5 million lbs of U 3 O 8 between 2005 and 2013, when full production was curtailed as a result of low uranium prices at the time.

Additionally, further to the Company's news release dated February 15, 2023 announcing the conversion of 23,277,000 subscription receipts issued on December 6, 2022 at a price of C$3.00 per subscription receipt (the " Subscription Receipt Offering "), the Company advises that it paid an aggregate of C$4,050,000 in cash commissions to Canaccord Genuity Corp. (C$2,025,000) , Haywood Securities Inc. (C$810,000) , Cantor Fitzgerald Canada Corporation (C$364,500) , PI Financial Corp. (C$364,500) , Clarus Securities Inc. (C$324,000) , and Red Cloud Securities Inc. (C$162,000) . 50% of the cash commission was paid on closing of the Subscription Receipt Offering, and the balance of the cash commission (with interest earned thereon) has been released from escrow to the underwriters. The Company also paid an aggregate of C$24,600 in cash commissions to Haywood Securities Inc. (C$12,000) and Canaccord Genuity Corp. (C$12,600) in connection with the non-brokered portion of the Subscription Receipt Offering. For additional information regarding the Subscription Receipt Offering, please see the Company's news releases dated December 6, 2022 and February 15, 2023 .

The Company advises that it is not basing its production decisions at Alta Mesa or Rosita on a feasibility study of mineral reserves demonstrating economic and technical viability. The production decision is based on known past In-Situ Recovery (ISR) and processing operations at these two production facilities and surrounding lands. However, the Company understands that there is increased uncertainty, and consequently a higher risk of failure, when production is undertaken in advance of a feasibility study. In addition, the mineral resource at Alta Mesa includes inferred resources which are considered too speculative geologically to have economic considerations applied to them that would enable them to be categorized as mineral reserves. The Company has determined to proceed with a production decision based on past operations at Alta Mesa and Rosita, including past ISR operations on the known mineral resource areas.

John M. Seeley , Ph.D., P.G., C.P.G., enCore's Manager of Geology and Exploration, and a Qualified Person under NI 43-101, has reviewed and approved the technical disclosure in this news release on behalf of enCore.

Encore Energy Corp. is committed to providing clean, reliable, and affordable domestic nuclear energy by becoming the next United States uranium producer in 2023. enCore solely utilizes In-Situ Recovery (ISR) for uranium extraction, a well-known and proven technology co-developed by the leaders at enCore Energy. In-Situ Recovery extracts uranium in a non-invasive process through the use of natural groundwater and oxygen, coupled with a proven ion exchange process, to recover the uranium. Uranium production is planned at enCore's licensed and past-producing South Texas Rosita Processing Plant in 2023, and at its licensed and past-producing South Texas Alta Mesa Processing Plant in 2024.

ENCORE ENERGY SUPPORTS KEY TEXAS LEGISLATION

ENCORE ENERGY SUPPORTS KEY TEXAS LEGISLATION

Encore Energy Corp. (" enCore " or the " Company ") (NYSE: EU) (TSXV: EU)) today announced that enCore's Chief Operating Officer, Peter Luthiger testifies today before the Texas State House Committee on Natural Resources regarding two bills of importance to the uranium industry. Both bills are sponsored by Texas State Representative Ryan Guillen . Mr. Luthiger, who is also Chairman of the Texas Mining and Reclamation Association (TMRA), testifies both on behalf of enCore and TMRA's Uranium Mining Committee.

enCore Energy Logo (CNW Group/enCore Energy Corp.)

Bill HB 4119 would enhance the administrative procedure for permitting in-situ recovery (ISR) of uranium by clarifying the public's ability to participate in one fulsome and transparent hearing. Bill HB 4120 would allow the Texas Council on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) staff to inspect a proposed well site using aerial or satellite imagery, or other appropriate sources, rather than conducting an on-site visit. The bills would make the administrative process more efficient, reduce staff time and conserve groundwater that would otherwise be consumed in reclamation activities during the permitting process.

enCore Energy's Chief Executive Officer, Paul Goranson , stated "Working together with our Texas State Representatives and the Texas Mining and Reclamation Association is extremely important to enhance and improve our regulatory environment. While Texas is one of the most favorable states for in-situ recovery of uranium, we always seek ways to work together to ensure we maintain Texas as a leading jurisdiction. At all times enCore seeks to work to ensure our company leads the way to provide the people of Texas and the United States with a reliable and environmentally-responsible source of material for nuclear energy, fueling the future."

Platinum Price Forecast: Top Trends That Will Affect Platinum in 2024

After posting a sizeable surplus of 776,000 ounces in 2022, platinum market dynamics began to reverse course last year on the back of strong demand and decreased supply for the precious metal.

At the start of 2023, the World Platinum Investment Council (WPIC) expected platinum to slip into a deficit of around 556,000 ounces for the year based on increasing demand from the auto sector and strong imports from China.

Platinum is widely used in catalytic converters, which contain one or more of the platinum-group metals (PGMs). They act as catalysts to break down harmful emissions, and separate nitrogen from oxygen in nitrogen oxide molecules.

Edward Sterck: Platinum on Track for Record Deficit, Price Catalysts Building

With demand strong and supply flat, platinum is on track for a record 2023 deficit of 1,071,000 ounces.

Edward Sterck, director of research at the World Platinum Investment Council (WPIC), broke down those dynamics and what they could mean for the metal's price, which remains stuck in the US$900 to US$1,100 per ounce range.

"I think the key point for this year is it's very much a demand-led deficit," he told the Investing News Network.

Edward Sterck: Platinum Facing Record Deficit, What's Holding Back the Price?

In its latest quarterly report, the World Platinum Investment Council (WPIC) forecasts that the platinum market will hit a deficit of over a million ounces in 2023 as demand jumps by 27 percent year-on-year and supply stays flat.

A deficit of that size would be the largest on record, and in a conversation with the Investing News Network, Edward Sterck, director of research at the WPIC, shared details on the demand- and supply-side factors driving the shortfall.

Looking first at demand, he said automotive, industrial and investment demand are all expected to rise this year, even against the uncertain economic environment that's continuing to affect many parts of the world.
