    AUSTIN, Oct. 15 /CNW/ - Uranium Energy Corp (AMEX:   UEC) is pleased to
announce that it has filed two Class I Non-hazardous Waste Disposal Well
Applications (WDWA) with the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ)
for the Company's Goliad ISR Uranium Project in South Texas. The on-site wells
will be used for the disposal of fluids associated with uranium recovery and
aquifer restoration activities. As with the previously filed Mine Permit
Application and Production Area Authorization Application, TCEQ will conduct
administrative and technical reviews of the Waste Disposal Well Applications.

    Corporate Update

    The Company is also implementing a series of cost-saving programs by
reassessing field personnel and postponing planned expenditures on non-core
initiatives. The Company is postponing planned exploration programs for its
Colorado Plateau projects, as one example, and reorganizing resources to
adjust to the reduced number of work programs outside of Texas.
    Amir Adnani, president and CEO stated: "As the first public company in
over 10 years to receive a draft uranium mine permit in the U.S., the
Company's first and highest priority remains advancing our near-term
production efforts in South Texas at our Goliad ISR Project. However, in light
of current uncertain market conditions, the Company is fortunate to have
raised $15.3 million in the equity markets this past summer, and will remain
vigilant to preserve its strong working capital position. To this end, UEC is
implementing a series of cost-saving programs to conserve its cash position,
one of the strongest in the junior uranium sector, while improving our focus
on our near-term production potential in South Texas."
