URZ - Here We Go! $5 Target for 2013 May Go Higher

URZ announced today that the Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality has issued the Class I Underground Injection Control (deep disposal well) permit for the Co's Nichols Ranch ISR Uranium Project located in the Powder River Basin of Wyoming, U.S.A. This deep disposal well authorization is the last permit required to begin operations and commercial uranium production at Nichols Ranch.

The Nichols Ranch ISR Uranium Project will be the first new uranium mine built in Wyoming since 1996. The project is licensed for a production level of up to two million pounds of uranium per year with initial annual production targeted for 600,000-800,000 pounds after ramp-up. The project will also serve as a platform to develop the Co's other Powder River Basin properties with enhanced economics for adjacent and satellite projects.

"The receipt of the deep disposal well permit concludes a long but successful effort to obtain all of the regulatory permits and licenses needed to construct and operate an ISR uranium mine in Wyoming," stated Mike Thomas, Vice President of Environment, Health and Safety.

"With this final permit in hand, Uranerz will focus on installing two deep disposal wells this winter while completing the remaining construction activities," stated Company President and CEO, Glenn Catchpole. "We are all very excited at the prospect of becoming America’s next ISR uranium producer in 2013."
