Western Uranium & Vanadium Corp. (CSE: WUC) (OTCQX: WSTRF) ("Western" or the "Company") is pleased to provide the following update.

Mining Operations at the Sunday Mine Complex ("SMC") are proceeding and producing results far beyond expectations. The development of one of the multiple SMC ore bodies, the GMG Ore Body, required the drift (tunnel) to be extended 150 feet to reach the first surface exploration drill hole. Notably, only limited exploration drilling has been done in this area due to the mountainous terrain on the surface above.

In confirmation of the horizontal drilling results announced last month, very high-grade ore continues to be intersected through the drift path and on both sides of the drift. As a result, the team shifted from development to mining. In a matter of only three working days, over 300 tons of very high-grade uranium/vanadium ore was mined from the drift. Based upon on-site scintillometer readings, we estimate 1.5%+ uranium U3O8 content. At present market prices, this mined ore has a uranium/vanadium ore value of approximately one million dollars (USD$1,000,000).

Additional ore mined during development of the GMG Ore Body will be stockpiled. Following development of this ore body, it is anticipated that substantial amounts of ore can be produced. When full mining operations commence, the overall grade of the uranium/vanadium ore is now expected to be considerably higher than projected and a multiple of historical Uravan Mineral Belt ore grades.

Development of the GMG Ore Body will continue throughout the remaining part of this year and into early 2022.

Drilling Commences at Thor ISR Uranium Project in Wyoming

Drilling Commences at Thor ISR Uranium Project in Wyoming

GTI Resources Ltd (GTI or Company) is pleased to advise that 2 mud rotary drill rigs have commenced drilling on schedule at the Thor ISR uranium project in Wyoming's Great Divide basin (Figure 1). This 50,000-foot (-15,000 metre) maiden drill program of circa 100 holes is designed to confirm the grade and tenor of uranium mineralisation that was previously identified by Kerr McGee in the 1980's and to ultimately support definition of an economic ISR uranium resource.

The Company has prioritised the Thor Project area for drilling based on historical exploration data, which includes results of 83 historic drill holes including some drill logs, and the project's location on the mapped REDOX boundary.

5 Largest Uranium Producers in the World

Following a year that saw uranium rank among the best-performing commodities, 2021 has brought a continued rise in the value of the energy fuel, spurring interest in the sector among investors.

Uranium started the year at US$29.63 per pound, and prices have trended higher over the last 11 months, pushing the nuclear fuel to a nine year high in September, when it hit an intraday high of US$50.76.

Production declines caused by 2020 closures aided in the price growth. However, a widespread push towards nuclear as a clean energy source has served as a primary catalyst for uranium's value increase.

Top Uranium Mines in the World

In 2020, world uranium mine production came to 56,287 tonnes of U3O8. Kazakhstan was the top-producing country by far at 19,477 tonnes, followed by Australia and Namibia.

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.
