MissionIR News – Ur-Energy Inks Third Uranium Supply Agreement

Toronto News, (PR) February 12, 2012

MissionIR would like to highlight Ur-Energy, Inc., a publicly traded junior mining company focusing on the exploration and development of uranium properties in the United States and Canada. The companys current focus is to develop its roll front style uranium development projects with In-Situ Recovery (ISR) potential located in Wyoming.

MissionIR is committed to connecting the investment community with companies that have great potential and a strong dedication to building shareholder value. We know our reputation is based on the integrity of our clients and go to great lengths to ensure the companies represented adhere to sound business practices

In the companys news last week, Ur-Energy announced it has secured its third agreement to supply uranium produced at its wholly owned Lost Creek Project. This multi-year agreement marks the achievement of the companys strategic product marketing strategy developed under an arrangement with Jim Cornell of NuCore Energy.

Ur-Energys marketing objective includes the commitment of a pre-determined portion of the forecast uranium production from Lost Creek into term sales agreements with U.S. based nuclear utilities.

The agreement calls for the total delivery of 100,000 pounds of uranium concentrate per year throughout the range of the agreement, with delivery prices in the low $ 60 per pound range. The company said that securing this product pricing supports its development plans for the project.

Ur-Energy recognizes that term contract pricing has historically exceeded the pricing available in the uranium spot market. One leading source for uranium market information currently reports a 20% premium for term contracts over the current uranium spot price. For this reason, favorable term delivery contracts are an essential component of a sound marketing plan, Cornell stated.

Ur-Energy has established a series of various projects to strengthen its position in the market.

We are pleased that our efforts to work closely with North American utilities have resulted in several valuable contracts. Adding this marketing component to our collection of accomplishments in project financing, permitting and licensing, resource development, and project design establishes a solid foundation for the future of Ur-Energy and the Lost Creek Project, Ur-Energy CEO Wayne Heili stated.

Production from the Lost Creek project is slated to begin in the second quarter of 2013 and increase production to nearly 1 million pounds per year in 2014 and thereafter.
