NexGen Announces Closing of Strategic Purchase of 2.7 Million Pounds of Uranium

NexGen Energy Ltd. ("NexGen" or the "Company") (TSX: NXE) (NYSE: NXE) (ASX: NXG) is pleased to announce that it has closed its previously announced purchase (the "Purchase") of 2,702,410 pounds natural uranium concentrate ("U 3 O 8 ") for an aggregate purchase price of US$250 million which was satisfied through the issuance of US$250 million aggregate principal amount of five year, 9.0% per annum (payable 23 cash and 13 common shares) unsecured convertible debentures (the "Debentures"), in accordance with the previously disclosed terms including entering into investor rights agreements with the holders of Debentures containing voting alignment, standstill, anti-hedging and sale and transfer restriction covenants.

Leigh Curyer, Chief Executive Officer, commented: "This transaction further optimizes the advancement of the offtake negotiations which are underway and progressing well.  This transaction is designed to ultimately maximize the value of the significant uranium inventory that we will have as we look ahead to production and sales.  Further, having access to 2.7 million pounds of uranium at surface in inventory will no doubt prove to be increasingly strategic given the recent passing of the Prohibiting Russian Uranium Imports Act into US law. The current offtake discussions tie into the project financing process which is progressing in anticipation of full project approvals.  With the responses to the final 49 aspects of the technical review process submitted to the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission on May 21, 2024 , we are advancing the project through final detailed designs and procurement activities in line with our objectives and schedule."

Fission Uranium: Developing the High-Grade Triple R Uranium Deposit in the Athabasca Basin

Fission Uranium (TSX:FCU,OTCQX:FCUUF) offers investors an entry opportunity to take advantage of the potentially bullish uranium market and demand for nuclear energy. The company is developing the high-grade Triple R uranium deposit within its PLS property in Saskatchewan’s renowned Athabasca Basin uranium district. The Triple R deposit is known for its sizable high-grade uranium mineralization that is accessible at just 50 meters from surface. It is the only major, undeveloped deposit in the Basin at which the high-grade core begins close to surface.PL

Fission Uranium’s PLS project is positioned as potentially one of the world’s lowest OPEX uranium projects.

Highly mineralized intervals are observed in the core close to surface in 2 holes of the 4 completed. After the 5th hole the rig will commence drilling at the nearby Mtonya area to follow-up on the excellent historical intersections along the northwest side of the deposit which appears to be ‘open’. At the Likuyu North deposit, a 370 line-km ground magnetic survey is nearing completion – the data will guide the drill targeting aimed at identifying potential extensions or new zones.

Top Stories This Week: Uranium’s East/West Divide Heats Up, Central Banks Eye Gold

The gold price rose as high as US$2,366 per ounce on Thursday (June 20), but had fallen back to the US$2,325 level by Friday (June 21) morning, looking set to end the week relatively flat.

Its price increase came as US jobless claims fell by 5,000 to reach 238,000 in the week ended June 15; meanwhile, single-family housing starts fell by 5.2 percent in May. The data has boosted interest rate cut expectations for the fall.

Central bank buying has provided major support for the gold price in recent months and years, and a new survey from the World Gold Council (WGC) indicates that 29 percent of the 70 central banks that responded intend to increase their gold reserves in the next 12 months — that's the highest level seen since the survey began in 2018.
