Uravan Announces Private Placement

/NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES./

CALGARY, April 29, 2016 /CNW/ - Uravan Minerals Inc. ("Uravan" or the "Corporation") is pleased to announce that, subject to regulatory approvals, it intends to issue pursuant to a non-brokered private placement up to 2,000,000 units ("Units") at a price of $0.10 per Unit and up to 670,000 common shares of the Corporation issued on a "CEE flow-through" basis pursuant to the Income Tax Act (Canada) ("Flow-Through Shares") at a price of $0.15 per Flow-Through Share for aggregate gross proceeds of up to $300,500 (the "Offering").

Each Unit consists of one common share of the Corporation ("Common Share") and one Common Share purchase warrant ("Warrant"). Each whole Warrant will expire 24 months from the closing date, and will entitle the holder to acquire one Common Share of the Corporation at a price of $0.20 per Common Share.

Proceeds of the Offering will be used by Uravan to finance the completion of a property-wide helicopter-borne electromagnetic (EM) geophysical survey over the Outer Ring project, Athabasca Basin, Northern Saskatchewan [map link]. The survey will be completed using Geotech Ltd.'s natural source Z-Axis Tipper Electromagnetic (ZTEM) system. Geotech's ZTEM system is considered ideal for imaging basement conductors where the unconformity depths are greater than 800 m. The ZTEM survey is the next requirement to advance this project for drill targeting. The main area of focus is a discrete southwest-trending corridor of anomalous concentrations of radiogenic 207Pb/206Pb ratios (<0.60) occurring in the clay-size fraction from soils (ORX Anomaly) (map link).  Our experience tells us that the presence of tightly-patterned surface anomalies (i.e. radiogenic 207Pb/206Pb ratios in soil clay-size fraction) quickly defines highly prospective areas and, if supported by conductive EM signatures, drill targeting becomes immediate. 

Closing of the Offering is anticipated to occur on or about May 9, 2016. The securities issued pursuant to the Offering are subject to a four month hold period under applicable securities laws.

Uravan is a Calgary, Alberta-based diversified mineral exploration company that utilizes applied research to develop innovative exploration technologies to identify buried uranium deposits in under-explored areas. Our exploration focus in uranium is for potential high-grade unconformity-related uranium deposits in the Athabasca Basin in Canada.  Uravan is a publicly listed company on the TSX Venture Exchange under the trading symbol UVN. All of the mineral properties Uravan owns are considered to be in the exploration stage of development.
