CALGARY, AB, Oct. 28, 2022 /CNW/ - Further to Uravan Minerals Inc.'s (TSXV: UVN) ("Uravan") August 15, 2022, press release, Uravan is pleased to announce that it has completed the acquisition (the "Acquisition") of Prime Fuels Corp ("Prime") and Prime's 100% owned mining property (the "Claims") located in Lisbon Valley Mining District (the "Lisbon Valley District") Utah, USA.

Pursuant to the terms of the Acquisition, Uravan acquired all the common shares of Prime from the Prime shareholders (the "Prime Shareholders") at a deemed value of $124,000 (the "Purchase Price"). The Purchase Price was satisfied by Uravan issuing 800,000 common shares of Uravan (the "Uravan Shares") to the Prime Shareholders at a deemed value of $0.155 per Uravan Share.  Prime is now a wholly owned subsidiary of Uravan, and Uravan is now the beneficial and recorded owner of 100% interest in the Claims.

Pursuant to Policy 5.3 of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange"), the Transaction is considered a "Fundamental Acquisition" requiring Uravan to obtain Exchange approval, and Uravan has received conditional approval for the completion of the Acquisition.  On October 26, 2022, the Exchange issued a resumption bulletin approving the Acquisition allowing resumption of trading of Uravan Shares effective Friday, October 28, 2022. All Uravan Shares issued to the Prime Shareholders will be subject to a statutory 4-month hold period under applicable securities law.

Larry Lahusen, CEO of Uravan comments: "Early in my carrier as a freelance geologist I developed a "Concept of Uranium Deposition" in the Lisbon Valley District (then called The Big Indian Wash Uranium District) that culminated in the discovery of the Velvet – Section 2 Uranium Deposits. With Uravan's Acquisition of the of LS mining claims, I am pleased to be active again in this highly prolific uranium producing domain. I believe it is a pivotal time to be involved in uranium exploration and specifically in the Lisbon Valley area."
