expert analysis & newsletter briefs

Ur-Energy Inc.

"As far as the U.S. in-situ recovery (ISR) startups go, we recommend Ur-Energy Inc. . .production at Lost Creek in Wyoming has gone well in year one. Wellfields are performing nicely at the lower end of our cost curve at $20/lb. Due to current uranium prices, production was tapered back to accommodate selling exclusively into long-term contracts. Thus the operation is largely insensitive to price movements, as the company sells its uranium for more than $60/lb. Management is pretty excited about its Shirley Basin project. This is a recent acquisition from Areva S.A. that should have even higher grades and better properties suitable to ISR mining." (10/16/14) - The Energy Report Interview with David Talbot

Fission Uranium Corp.

"Among the Athabasca explorers, our top pick is Fission Uranium Corp. . .the Patterson Lake South (PLS) deposit is a potentially world-class discovery. It's shallow, high-grade, continuous, remains open in essentially all directions, and it's a basement-hosted deposit. We believe the project hosts about 80 Mlb at about 1.6% U3O8, but with increased cutoff grades, its average grade rises dramatically without shedding that many pounds. At less than a buck per share trading, Fission seems like a no-brainer. The stock hasn't been at this level since August 2013, and the company's added perhaps 40 Mlb to its deposits since then. Fission's also started contemplating mining scenarios. It significantly derisked the project, plus all 61 of its summer drill holes were successful at PLS. The company cannot miss. It's likely that many investors are waiting for an initial resource, which is due by year-end 2014. " (10/16/14) - The Energy Report Interview with David Talbot

Energy Fuels Inc.

"In a rising uranium price environment, I suggest a few producers, including Energy Fuels Inc. . .Energy Fuels has a Buy rating, high risk, with a $14/share target. Operations feed into its White Mesa Mill in Utah, which is the only fully licensed and operational U.S. uranium mill, and it's licensed for 8 Mlb of production per year. Energy Fuels is essentially 100% hedged, with sales of 800 Klb this year, opting only to sell into contracts. Most recently, sales were almost double those of spot prices. The company has some excellent contracts. Several operations remain on standby, or construction has been halted. Higher prices are required to unlock its vast pipeline, which includes projects in Wyoming and New Mexico, plus existing mines in Colorado, Utah and Arizona, which could lead to more than 45 Mlb of production company-wide. That would provide great leverage for this company." (10/16/14) - The Energy Report Interview with David Talbot
