Uravan Announces Sale Of The Outer Ring Claims

CALGARY, AB, April 2, 2021 /CNW/ – Uravan Minerals Inc. (TSXV: UVN) ("Uravan") announces the sale of its Outer Ring mining claims (the "OR Claims") located in the Athabasca Basin, in Saskatchewan. The OR Claims were purchased from Uravan by an independent exploration group.

From 2011 to 2016 Uravan's technical team evaluated the OR Claims by applying surface geochemical techniques and airborne geophysical surveys, followed by several drill programs that targeted potential areas identified. The results of this work provided no positive uranium mineral response; hence, the Uravan Board did not recommend incurring further exploration expenditures on the OR Claims.

Therefore, due to Uravan's current financial constraints, weak spot natural uranium prices and lack of access to financial markets or other sources of financing, Uravan determined it is in the best interest of its shareholders to divest and sell the OR Claims in lieu of allowing the claims to lapse due to a lack of further work expenditures.

Uravan will continue to pursue and evaluate other businesses and strategic opportunities, both within and outside the mineral exploration industry, to include mergers and RTO arrangements and will make further announcements with respect to these efforts in due course.
