VANCOUVER, Sept. 29, 2014 /CNW/ - UEX Corporation (UEX:TSX) ("UEX" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has closed its previously announced flow-through common share offering (the "Offering") with Raymond James Ltd. (the "Agent") on a "best efforts" private placement basis for 7,176,390 common shares of the Company which qualify as "flow-through" shares pursuant to the Income Tax Act (Canada) at a price of $0.43 per flow‑through share for total gross proceeds to UEX of $3,085,848.  Cameco Corporation has advised the Company that it intends to waive its pre-emptive right to participate in the Offering.

The securities issued by UEX in connection with the Offering are subject to a four month plus one day "hold period" as prescribed by the Toronto Stock Exchange and applicable securities laws.
