    About Uravan Minerals Inc.
    Uravan is a mineral exploration company focusing on uranium, base metal
(nickel, copper) and precious metal (gold, platinum, and palladium)
exploration. Uravan's principal assets are the Boomerang uranium project, the
Garry Lake uranium property and the Rottenstone Nickel-Copper-PGE project. Due
to the persistent increase in the uranium prices, going from $7.10 per pound
U3O8 in 2000 to $78.00 recently, Uravan has become highly focused in pursuing
exploration for potential high-grade unconformity-type uranium deposits on its
joint Cameco-Uravan Boomerang uranium project and its Gary Lake uranium
project plus acquiring additional uranium properties in other potential
geological domains. Uravan is a publicly listed company on the TSX Venture
Exchange under the trading symbol UVN. Uravan now has 26,707,614 shares
outstanding and $10 million in working capital. All of the mineral properties
Uravan owns are considered in the exploration stage of development.
