Ur-Energy Inc. (NYSE American:URG) (TSX:URE) is pleased to announce that on November 10, 2020 the Senate Committee on Appropriations ("Committee") released its twelve FY2021 funding measures and the FY2021 subcommittee allocations, including recommendation for the creation and funding of the American Uranium Reserve

The American Uranium Reserve is among the recommendations of the U.S. Nuclear Fuel Working Group Report (April 23, 2020) for the revitalization of domestic uranium mining and the U.S. nuclear fuel cycle The funding request is the same $150 million for FY2021 advanced by the President's proposed budget announced in February 2020.

Creation of the American Uranium Reserve will begin to address our nation's nearly complete dependence on imported uranium fuel products, most of which originate from state-supported enterprises in Russia and Kazakhstan. As set forth in the Report, "As included in the President's Fiscal Year 2021 Budget Request, during the first year, it is expected that the reserve would directly support the operation of at least two U.S. uranium mines and the reestablishment of active domestic conversion capabilities." The American Uranium Reserve, as envisioned in the Working Group Report, will enable the U.S. government to make direct purchases from domestic uranium miners of 17-19 million pounds of U3O8 over ten years.

Ur-Energy's Chairman and CEO Jeff Klenda stated, "We are pleased to see this historic step forward toward the establishment of the American Uranium Reserve and commend what Senate Committee Chairman Richard Shelby noted was generally bipartisan support for the funding measures and allocations approved by his Committee. This advances one of the key recommendations in the Working Group's Report. As we have waited for the implementation of the Report's recommendations, we have maintained operational readiness at our Lost Creek mine with our experienced technical and operational staff and a well-maintained plant. Lost Creek has been operating safely and steadily for more than seven years, and we are prepared to rapidly expand uranium production, to an annualized run rate of one million pounds."

Top 5 Uranium Stocks on the TSX and TSXV in 2022

Click here to read the previous top uranium stocks on the TSX and TSXV article.

As was anticipated by experts, uranium has seen large gains in 2022, reaching US$64.50 per pound on April 14 — a decade high — driven by factors like Russia's invasion of Ukraine and increasing nuclear adoption.

While uranium's price has fallen since then, it is still performing well, sitting above US$46.50. However, many stocks are still not seeing the performance one might expect. What do experts think of the current market?

"I see it as an opportunity now, I see great uranium companies on sale now," Lobo Tiggre, editor and founder of, told the Investing News Network (INN) in an interview at the Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada (PDAC) convention in June. "And if we do get a market crash, I think we'll get a gift — we'll get a shot at stupid cheap prices on fantastic companies."
