U3O8 Corp. is a Canadian-based company advancing sequential development of uranium and associated battery commodity deposits in South America with a focus on low-cost production. U3O8 Corp. has uranium resources in Colombia, Argentina and Guyana including positive metallurgical results from each of these projects. Preliminary Economic Assessments (PEA) on the Argentine and Colombian deposits show low production cost potential.

Projects in Hand

U3O8 Corp. is focused on exploration and development of deposits of uranium and associated battery commodities in South America. Potential by-products from uranium production include commodities used in the energy storage industry – in the manufacture of batteries – such as nickel, vanadium and phosphate. The Company’s mineral resources estimates were made in accordance with National Instrument 43-101, and are contained in three deposits:

  • Laguna Salada Deposit, Argentina – a PEA shows this near surface, free-digging uranium – vanadium deposit has low production-cost potential;
  • Berlin Deposit, Colombia – a PEA shows that Berlin also has low-cost uranium production potential due to revenue that would be generated from by-products of phosphate, vanadium, nickel, rare earths (yttrium and neodymium) and other metals that occur within the deposit; and
  • Kurupung Deposit, Guyana – a uranium resource has been estimated in four veins within a uranium-zirconium vein system. Consistent mineralization of the same type has been intersected in scout drilling of an additional six veins, while yet other veins require first-time exploration drilling.

Laguna Salada Project, Chubut Province, Argentina
(approx. 3 years to potential production)

  • Simple to mine;
  • Environmental restoration would be done in real-time;
  • No open pit would be left at the end of the mine’s life;
  • Tried and tested process used to extract uranium and vanadium;
  • Would be amongst the lower-cost producers in the uranium industry;
  • Is the only uranium deposit in Argentina to have a resource estimate made in compliance with NI 43-101, in a jurisdiction that is increasing its nuclear electricity generating capacity from the current three reactors to five; and
  • Project is 100%-owned by U3O8 Corp.

The Preliminary Economic Assessment established an average annual production of 0.6 million pounds of uranium (U3O8) and 1 million pounds of vanadium (V2O5). Argentina’s requirement for fuel for its reactors is 0.4 million pounds of uranium per year.

Exploration adjacent to Laguna Salada has defined areas of similar mineralization. U3O8 Corp.’s management team believes that these areas are extensions to the deposit with indications that the deposit could at least double in size.

Development strategy:

  • Project is sufficiently simple for U3O8 Corp. to put into production or JV with producer and keep minority stake to receive cash flow.

Berlin Project, Central Colombia
(approx. 4 to 5 years to potential production)

  • One geological layer contains:
    • Uranium for nuclear energy;
    • Phosphate for agricultural fertilizer and batteries;
    • Nickel and Vanadium used together with phosphate in lithium ion batteries;
    • Vanadium used in steel alloys and vanadium redox batteries;
    • Neodymium (a rare earth element) used in high-strength magnets for high-efficiency electric motors and for high-efficiency generators in wind turbines;
    • Yttrium (a rare earth element) used principally in laser technology and as a red phosphor in screens for electronics.
  • Tried and tested process that was used for decades to extract uranium and rare earth elements at Elliot Lake in Ontario is effective in extracting metals and phosphate from the mineralized rock from the Berlin Project;
  • Would be amongst the lower-cost producers in the uranium industry;
  • Good infrastructure:
    • Located 60 km from the La Dorada port on the Magdalena River;
    • La Dorada is also linked to the Caribbean coast by road and rail;
    • The Project is located within 12 km of 0.4GW hydroelectric dam; and
  • Project is 100%-owned by U3O8 Corp.

Berlin Should be One of the Lowest-Cost Producers in the Uranium Industry

The Preliminary Economic Assessment on Berlin estimates that the deposit would generate revenue of US$2.8 billion over the 15-year mine life. Estimated revenue from by-products alone would be US$1.8 billion, which would cover the estimated operating cost of US$1.6 billion. In other words, estimated by-product revenue completely pay for the mining and extraction uranium – and so uranium can be considered to be extracted at no cost.

Development strategy:

  • JV with producer and keep minority stake
  • Streaming agreements or royalties on by products (phosphate, vanadium, nickel, rare earths)

In addition, Dr. Keith Barron, founder and director of U3O8, has offered to exercise out-of-the-money warrants as a means of providing the company with working capital that is not dilutive to U3O8 shareholders.

On May 25, 2017, U3O8 Corp. announced that David Marsh, a metallurgist with extensive experience in the design, construction and operation of uranium extraction plants, has agreed to stand for election as a director of the company at its annual and special meeting scheduled to be held at 11 a.m. on Thursday, June 22, at 20 Toronto St., second floor, Toronto, Ont., M5C 2B8.

On May 23, 2017, U3O8 Corp. announced that it will seek shareholder approval to undertake a restructuring of its common shares at its annual and special meeting scheduled to be held at 11 a.m. on Thursday, June 22, at 20 Toronto St., second floor, Toronto, Ont., M5C 2B8.

On May 02, 2017, U3O8 Corp. has provided an update on recent developments in the Argentine nuclear industry and their relevance to the company's Laguna Salada uranium-vanadium deposit, which is located in Argentina.

U3O8's presentation at the Nuclear Industry Summit Latin America 2017 held in Buenos Aires, Argentina, is available on the company's website. U3O8 will also be making a presentation at the Investing in LatAm Mining Cumbre to be held in Santiago, Chile, on July 11 and July 12, 2017.

On March 30, 2017, U3O8 Corp. announced that it has staked the old La Niquelina mine, a past small producer of uranium, cobalt and nickel, in Salta province, Argentina.

On March 23, 2017, U3O8 Corp. U3O8 Corp. provided an update on the progress achieved in the quarter toward driving down production cost estimates on its priority project, the Laguna Salada deposit in Argentina. The Company has also decided, under IFRS (international financial reporting standards) rules, to take an impairment charge of $7.7-million on its Berlin project in Colombia in its year-end financial statements for 2016.

This is an accounting measure that reflects the limited work undertaken in Colombia under the difficult conditions in the uranium resource sector over the last three years, while available funds have been focused on advancing the Laguna Salada deposit in Argentina. The Berlin deposit in Colombia remains in good standing and will be reactivated by the Company as soon as adequate financing becomes available.

On March 15, 2017, U3O8 Corp. reported that Argentina produced 7,677 gigawatt-hours of electricity from its two operating nuclear reactors in 2016. This represents 5.6 per cent of Argentina's electricity production, generated by the Atucha I and Atucha II nuclear reactors. When the Embalse power plant comes back to full production in mid-2018, the three reactors will generate approximately 9 per cent of the country's electricity in 2019.
