GoviEx Uranium Inc. (TSXV: GXU) (OTCQB: GVXXF) (the "Company" or "GoviEx"), today announced that Denison Mines Corp ("Denison") has entered into a private agreement to sell 32,500,000 common shares of the 65,144,021 common shares it holds in GoviEx at an attributed value of CAD 0.48 and warrants to acquire an additional 32,500,000 common shares of Goviex held by Denison at an exercise price of CAD 0.80 per share for a term of 18 months. The purchaser of the single block is already a large existing institutional shareholder of GoviEx. Following this single transaction, Denison will own approximately 6% of GoviEx's current issued share capital.

David Cates, the CEO of Denison, will remain on the Board of GoviEx following the completion of this transaction.

Govind Friedland, GoviEx's Executive Chairman, said:

"This transaction announced today between two existing GoviEx shareholders demonstrates strong institutional demand and continued interest in the uranium sector and in GoviEx's equity. The second part of the transaction entitles the purchasing party to warrants exercisable at CAD 0.80, which is a positive sign of confidence in our management team and in the strength of our pipeline of uranium assets."

Denison's shareholding in GoviEx originated as part of a strategic transaction in 2016, in which GoviEx acquired Denison's wholly owned subsidiary, Rockgate Capital Corp., which held all of Denison's Africa-based uranium interests in exchange for 56,050,450 shares of GoviEx and 22,420,180 common share purchase warrants.

What Was the Highest Price for Uranium?

Uranium is an important metal in the energy sector because it provides fuel for nuclear power generation, which supplies 10 percent of global energy needs.

Over the past decade, the uranium price has struggled to recover from the 2011 Fukushima nuclear disaster, when a massive earthquake and subsequent tsunami severely damaged several Japanese nuclear reactors.

As a result, the demand for new nuclear reactors fell drastically as public fears over radioactivity risks understandably rose. This lack of demand growth coupled with excess supply have weighed heavily on both the uranium spot price and uranium contract prices over the last decade.
