CORPUS CHRISTI, TX, July 31, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - Uranium Energy Corp (NYSE
MKT: UEC, the "Company" or "UEC") is pleased to announce that the Company and
certain of its U.S. subsidiaries have entered into a US$20,000,000 senior
secured Credit Facility with Sprott Resource Lending Partnership and CEF
(Capital Markets) Limited.

Under the Credit Facility the Company has received initial funding in the
amount of US$10,000,000 (the "Initial Advance"), with an additional
US$5,000,000 available for draw-down by the Company pursuant to a second
advance, and a further additional US$5,000,000 available for draw-down by the
Company pursuant to a third advance, in each case in accordance with the terms
of the Credit Agreement.

Amir Adnani, President and CEO stated: "Closing of this facility injects
non-dilutive growth capital into the Company while aligning our interest with
two North American and Asian resource investors in Sprott and CEF Holdings
Limited. As we look to develop strategic ties in Asia, the fastest growing
market for nuclear power, it is important to establish relations with one of
the region's largest conglomerates."

The Company will use the proceeds of the Credit Facility for the development,
operation and maintenance of its Hobson, Goliad and Palangana projects and for
working capital purposes.

The Credit Facility has a two-year term and bears interest at a rate of 8% per
annum. The undrawn standby Credit Facility will be subject to a standby fee
of 4.00% per year.

Additionally, the Company will: (a) pay to the Lenders a one-time 4.5% fee
payable in the Company's common shares due 12-months from closing, and (b)
issue to the Lenders, on a pro rata basis, an aggregate of 2,600,000 common
stock purchase warrants (the "Bonus Warrants"), each exercisable for the
purchase of one common share in the capital of the Company at a price of
US$2.50 for a period of three years following the Initial Advance closing
date.

The Bonus Warrants are subject to accelerated expiry if, at any time prior to
the date of expiry of the Bonus Warrants, the 30-trading-day volume-weighted
average closing price of the Company's common shares on the NYSE MKT equals or
exceeds US$5.00 per share. In such case, the Bonus Warrants will expire on
the date that is 30 days following the Lender's receipt of notice of the
accelerated expiry date. On the earlier of the date of repayment of the
outstanding principal amount under the Credit Facility and the first
anniversary of the Initial Advance closing date, the Lenders will also
receive, on a pro rata basis, an aggregate fee of US$150,000, payable at the
election of the Lenders in cash or in the number of common shares determined
on the basis of a 10% discount to the five-trading-day volume-weighted average
closing price of the Company's common shares on the NYSE MKT immediately prior
to that date.

The Credit Facility is secured by the Company's Hobson plant and the Goliad
mineral leases and in the event of the advance of the final US$5,000,000,
would be required to be secured by the Palangana mineral leases.

the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and may not be offered or sold in
