(CSE: URM) (the “Company”) announces, further to its news releases of June 23, 2022, June 27, 2022, and July 18, 2023, that the Company has issued 100,000 Shares at a deemed price of $0.25 per Share and paid US$50,000 to an arm’s length optionor (the “Optionor”) pursuant to an amended and restated option agreement (the “Amended and Restated Option Agreement”) entered between the Optionor and FirstAmerican Energy Fuels Ltd. (“FirstAmerican”), of which the Company has acquired 60% of its issued and outstanding shares.
Shawn Balaghi, CEO commented, “We are pleased to be moving to the next step of the Company’s acquisition of the Red Basin property. Our board and management believe that timing could not be more critical for acceleration of the move away from burning fossil fuels for power generation. Current climate warming related tragic events and associated fires clearly indicate that there needs to be a change in the way we power our economies. Nuclear power generation will be an important component of this shift.”

The Company has assumed all of the obligation of FirstAmerican under the Amended and Restated Option Agreement, including paying any cash and issuing any shares contemplated therein.
Pursuant to the Amended and Restated Option Agreement and in order to acquire the 100% undivided right, title and interest in and to the Property, the Company will need to pay another US$50,000 to the Optionor on or before October 27, 2023.
