Denison issued 5,926,000 Flow-Through Shares at a price of $1.35 per Flow-Through Share, for total gross proceeds of approximately $8 million (the "Offering").  Cantor Fitzgerald Canada Corporation and Haywood Securities Inc. acted as co-lead underwriters and joint bookrunners for the Offering.

David Cates , President and CEO of Denison, commented, "Our 2020 exploration program at Wheeler River resulted in the discovery of new high-grade uranium mineralization along the K-West conductive trend, and returned the best mineralized drill hole completed to date at Zone C of the Phoenix deposit.  Both results point to the value of continued exploration in proximity to Phoenix – with the potential for the discovery and delineation of an ISR amenable uranium deposit that could become a satellite operation for the Company's planned ISR processing plant at Wheeler River."

The Company has agreed to use the gross proceeds from the sale of the Flow-Through Shares for "Canadian exploration expenses" (within the meaning of the Income Tax Act ( Canada )), related to the Company's Canadian uranium mining exploration projects in Saskatchewan . The Company has also agreed to renounce such Canadian exploration expenses with an effective date of no later than December 31, 2021 .

The securities offered have not been approved or disapproved by any regulatory authority, nor has any such authority passed upon by the accuracy or adequacy of the Prospectus Supplement or the Base Shelf Prospectus.

How Supply & Demand is Likely Driving the Uranium Market to Reach a 16-Year Peak This Year

FN Media Group News Commentary - Experts predict that the global uranium market is likely to reach a 16 year peak in 2024. A recent article in Reuters headlined: "Supply risks fuel uranium's flight to more than 16-year peak." The article said that Uranium prices have hit their highest in more than 16 years on a buying frenzy triggered after the world's largest miner of the nuclear fuel highlighted production risks, but the price surge is likely to mean the restart of mothballed capacity. It added: "Kazakhstan's Kazatomprom (KZAP) in January 2024 said it may cut its 2024 production plan due to difficulties with the availability of sulphuric acid needed to produce uranium. Uranium oxide prices, under pressure for years after the Fukushima nuclear accident in 2011 battered demand, picked up momentum in August 2021 when disruptions caused by COVID lockdowns hit supplies and created shortages. They have since rocketed 250%, and are up 15% so far this month to their highest since November 2007 at $106 a lb. After a decade of dormancy, uranium suddenly came to life in mid-2021, rising above its long-standing cap at $30 a lb, which also happens to be the global industry's marginal cost of mined production," said Liberum analyst Tom Price. Liberum forecasts a 300,000 lb deficit this year, down from a shortfall of 1.1 million lbs in 2023, and estimates 2024 demand at 174.7 million lbs, up from 170.4 million lbs last year." Active mining companies in the markets this week include Stallion Uranium Corp. (TSX-V: STUD) (OTCQB: STLNF), IsoEnergy Ltd. (OTCQX: ISENF) (TSX-V: ISO), FISSION URANIUM CORP. (OTCQX: FCUUF), Denison Mines Corp (NYSE American: DNN) (TSX: DML), NexGen Energy Ltd. (NYSE: NXE).

Top Stories This Week: Cameco Gives 2024 Guidance, Billionaire-backed KoBold Touts Big Copper Find

It was a quiet week for gold after last week's US Federal Reserve excitement. The yellow metal largely stayed the course, moving in a relatively narrow range to end the period just under US$2,025 per ounce.

Elsewhere in precious metals, the palladium price fell below the platinum price for the first time since April 2018, slipping as low as US$876.60 per ounce on Thursday (February 8). Palladium hit an all-time high in 2022, but substitution from automakers, which use both platinum and palladium in catalytic converters, is now weighing on its price.
