Saskatoon, Saskatchewan TheNewswire - November 17, 2021 UEX Corporation (TSX:UEX) ("UEX" or the "Company") is pleased to announce it has filed a technical report on the Horseshoe-Raven Project (the " Technical Report ") located in the eastern Athabasca Basin of northern Saskatchewan, prepared in accordance with National Instrument 43-101 " Standards of  Disclosure for Mineral Projects " (" NI-43-101 ").

In 2011 a Preliminary Economic Assessment titled " Preliminary Assessment Technical Report on the Horseshoe and Raven Deposits, Hidden Bay Project, Saskatchewan, Canada") (the " 2011 PEA ") was completed for the Horseshoe and Raven deposits. Due to the passage of time, the Company considers that the economic assessment of the 2011 PEA is no longer current and is no longer being relied upon by the Company. This 2021 Technical Report replaces the 2011 PEA with an updated estimate of mineral resources.

The Technical Report is entitled: "2021 Technical Report on the Horseshoe-Raven Project, Saskatchewan" and was prepared internally by UEX's exploration team comprised of Mr. Nathan Barsi, P.Geo. and Mr. Chris Hamel, P.Geo., in accordance with NI 43-101. Mr. Barsi and Mr. Hamel are employees of UEX Corporation and are Qualified Persons as defined by NI 43-101. The Technical Report is dated November 16, 2021 and has an effective date of November 16, 2021.

The Technical Report estimates indicated mineral resources for the Horseshoe Deposit at 4,982,500 tonnes grading 0.215% U 3 O 8 , which equates to 23,594,000 pounds of U 3 O 8 , and indicated mineral resources for the Raven Deposit at 5,370,000 tonnes grading 0.117% U 3 O 8 , which equates to 13,832,400 lbs U 3 O 8 . No inferred resources were estimated for either deposit. The resources for both the Horseshoe and Raven Deposits were determined using a cut-off grade of 0.05% U 3 O 8 and are presented in the table below:

*Mineral resources are not mineral reserves and have not demonstrated economic viability. There is no certainty that all or any part of the mineral resource will be converted into mineral reserve. All figures are rounded to reflect the relative accuracy of the estimates. Resources were estimated using a cut-off grade of 0.05% U 3 O 8 .

The mineral resource models used to construct the mineral estimates utilized 715 core boreholes totalling 210,385 m drilled by UEX during the period of 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, and 2011. The mineral resources reported were estimated using an inverse distance squared/block modelling approach informed from core borehole data constrained within uranium mineralization wireframes.

The Technical Report is available on the Company's website at www.uexcorp.com and is available on SEDAR at www.sedar.com .

About the Horseshoe-Raven Project

The Horseshoe-Raven Property is an advanced exploration project located in the eastern Athabasca Basin of northern Saskatchewan, Canada that contains both the Horseshoe Uranium Deposit and the Raven Uranium Deposit.  The Property is located approximately 700 kilometres north of Saskatoon, west of Wollaston Lake and measures approximately 4,486 hectares and is comprised of one mineral claim to which UEX has 100% ownership.  The Deposits are located just east of the margin of the Athabasca Basin within basement rocks and has excellent infrastructure.  An existing all-weather road crosses over the Deposits and power lines that service Cameco Corporation's nearby Rabbit Lake Operation pass within one km of the Deposits.  The Deposits occur within 5 km of Cameco's Rabbit Lake Uranium Mill.

The Horseshoe Uranium Deposit has a strike length of 800 metres and occurs at depths between 100 to 450 metres. The Raven Deposit is located 500 m southwest of the Horseshoe Deposit and has a strike length of 1,000 m and ranges between 100 to 300 m in depth.

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.
