Production Starts at Alta Mesa Uranium Project, Texas

Key milestone comes just eight weeks after production started at Boss’ Honeymoon project in South Australia; Boss on track to become a ~3Mlbs-a-year producer

Boss Energy Limited (ASX: BOE; OTCQX: BQSSF) is pleased to advise that production has started at its 30 per cent- owned Alta Mesa In-Situ Recovery (“ISR”) Central Processing Uranium Plant and Wellfields (“Alta Mesa Project”) in South Texas.


Production is forecast to ramp up to a steady-state rate of 1.5Mlbs a year, with Boss retaining sale and marketing rights over its pro-rata share.

The Alta Mesa Project, consisting of over 200,000 acres plus the central processing plant and wellfields, is managed by experienced uranium producer, and 70% partner, enCore Energy Corp ("enCore") (NASDAQ: EU) (TSXV: EU).

The key milestone comes just eight weeks after the start of production at Boss’ 100 per cent-owned Honeymoon project, where commissioning is proceeding to plan and production is forecast to ramp up to 2.45Mlbs a year.

Boss acquired its 30 per cent interest in the Alta Mesa Project in February 2024 from enCore and its wholly owned subsidiary, enCore Energy U.S. Corp., a highly credentialed United States uranium developer and operator, for US$60 million cash (see ASX release dated February 27, 2024).

Boss Managing Director Duncan Craib said: “The start of production at the Alta Mesa Project is another key milestone in the implementation of our strategy to be a global uranium supplier with a diversified production base in tier-one locations.

“With operations now ramping up at both Honeymoon and Alta Mesa, we are on track to hit our combined nameplate production target of 3Mlbs of uranium per annum.

“Our timing could hardly be better given the increasingly tight supply and demand fundamentals in the uranium market.

“This highly favourable outlook was underpinned by US President Joe Biden’s recent signing of legislation to ban the importation of uranium products from Russia.

“This was a game-changing event for the uranium market and in particular for uranium projects in North America and Australia.

“Given that we are ramping up production in both locations and we have strong growth prospects at each one, Boss is very well positioned to continue capitalising on this huge opportunity”.

The word uranium with a green arrow pointing up.

Uranium Stocks Surge as Kazakhstan Raises Mineral Extraction Tax

Kazakhstan's announcement of a significant increase in the Mineral Extraction Tax (MET) for uranium sent uranium stocks trending higher on July 10 as concerns of a potential supply disruption grew due to Kazakhstan's position as the world’s largest uranium-producing country.

The new tax rate changes will come in two waves. The first, effective January 1, 2025, will impose an initial hike from the current 6 percent to 9 percent.

Starting in 2026, they will take on a more complex and differentiated rate structure, structured to vary based on production volumes and the price of natural uranium concentrate (U3O8).

For production volumes up to 500 metric tons, the rate will be 4 percent, increasing incrementally to a maximum of 18 percent for volumes exceeding 4,000 metric tons.

Wyoming pinned with a red tack on a map.

Indigo Acquires Hot Uranium Property in Wyoming

Indigo Exploration (TSXV:IXI) has announced the acquisition of a 100 percent interest in the Hot property, a uranium project located in the Shirley Basin of Wyoming, US.

“Gaining 100 percent interest in a project of this calibre, located in a key uranium district next to past production and some of the preeminent US-focused uranium producers and developers, and with extensive historical drill results, is an exciting new development for the Company,” Indigo’s President and CEO Paul Cowley commented in the company's press release.

The Hot property covers 71 unpatented mineral claims over a 5.75 square kilometer area and has been the site of extensive historical exploration since the 1960s.

Wyoming is historically the largest uranium-producing state in the US and has the greatest uranium ore reserves. The Shirley Basin produced over 51 million pounds of U3O8 from 1960 to 1992 at an average grade of 0.22 percent U3O8. However, depressed uranium prices in the late 1900s led to many mines in the region shuttering. The resurgence in uranium prices in recent years has brought interest back to the region as companies look to restart operations, develop uranium deposits or make new discoveries.

Global Uranium Mining Market Expected to Reach $11.38 Billion By 2030 as Dependency on Nuclear Power Increases

FinancialNewsMedia.com News Commentary - In line with the rise of nuclear energy since the 1950's, uranium has become a pivotal commodity. This is especially true for countries that are highly dependent on nuclear energy to fulfill their domestic energy needs. According to a report from Statista, that the leading consumers of uranium worldwide are the countries with the highest share of nuclear energy: the United States, China, and France. The U.S. used nearly 18,300 metric tons of uranium in 2020. That was more than twice as much as France, which ranked third. Although there are global tendencies towards alternative energies, the worldwide nuclear energy consumption has remained consistent over the past decade. This suggests that uranium will likely continue to be an important commodity for decades to come. A report from GlobalData added that Uranium production is expected to grow marginally at a CAGR of more than 4% from 2024 to 2030 and that the countries holding significant uranium reserves are Australia, Kazakhstan, Canada, Russia, and Namibia among others. In 2023, Australia had the largest share followed by Kazakhstan. In terms of uranium production, Kazakhstan led the market followed by Canada. Active Mining Companies in the news includes: Indigo Exploration Inc. (OTCQB: IXIXF) (TSX-V: IXI), Ur-Energy Inc. (NYSE American: URG) (TSX: URE), Cameco Corporation (NYSE: CCJ) (TSX: CCO), Denison Mines Corp. (NYSE American: DNN), Uranium Energy Corp (NYSE American: UEC).
