InvestorNewsBreaks – Uranium Energy Corp. (NYSE American: UEC) Installs 106 Monitor Wells in First Production Area

Uranium Energy (NYSE American: UEC)a U.S.-based uranium mining and exploration company, has finished the installation of 106 monitor wells at its Burke Hollow Project in Bee County, Texas. With the installation complete, UCE has met the criteria for its first Production Area Authorization 1 (“PAA-1”), the newest and largest in-situ recovery (“ISR”) well field being developed in the United States. Calling the installation a “significant milestone achievement toward ISR uranium production,” UEC noted that the completion was also an important step in America’s nuclear fuel supply chain to provide safe, clean and reliable carbon-free energy. The company is focused on advancing its Burke Hollow project to help the United States in its efforts to reduce imports of Russian uranium, a move represented by the U.S. National Nuclear Security Administration (“NNSA”) efforts to obtain at least one million pounds of U.S.-produced uranium for the country’s strategic Uranium Reserve. Now that the monitor wells are installed, the company will focus on additional exploration and delineation drilling to identify additional production areas. “We are pleased to have completed the installation of the Burke Hollow PAA-1 monitor well ring, a critical step towards uranium extraction,” said Uranium Energy Corp. VP of resource development Andy Kurrus in the press release. “We have also defined resources outside of PAA-1 at the project, including several exploration targets and anomalous areas that have only been lightly explored. We expect this to translate into an extensive project pipeline with additional exploration drilling and production area development in the near future. The development of Burke Hollow, the only recent uranium discovery in the United States, is the largest goliad formation deposit ever discovered in the South Texas Uranium Trend.”
