GoviEx Uranium Inc. Key Developments

GoviEx Uranium and Toshiba Agree to Two-Year Bond Extension

GoviEx Uranium Inc. announced that its strategic partner, Toshiba Corporation has agreed to a two-year extension of an early redemption right of Toshiba's uranium loan (B Bond), to December 31, 2017. GoviEx remains focused on advancing the mining permit application process for its Madaouela Project.

GoviEx Uranium Inc. Files an Update of NI 43-101 Integrated Development Plan for the Madaouela Uranium Project in Niger

GoviEx Uranium Inc. announced that it has filed an updated NI 43-101 Integrated Development Plan (IDP) for the Madaouela Uranium Project in Niger, defining a large, low operating cost, commercially viable uranium project in the prolific Arlit uranium-mining district of northern Niger. The new IDP has generated a higher net present value and lower operating costs than the April 2014 version, largely due to the 13% increase in resources, lower process costs from reduced acid consumption and higher recovery achieved by additional ablation and leach test work. The company already has received the approval of its Environmental Social Impact Assessment for the Madaouela Project from the Minister in charge of the environment, and as announced on June 30, 2015, has filed the application for a Mining Permit based on the project defined in the updated IDP. The Madaouela Uranium Project is located near Arlit, in north central Niger, in one of the most significant areas of producing sandstone-hosted uranium deposits in the world. The project is controlled 100% by GoviEx Niger Holdings Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of GoviEx Uranium. The project is an advanced stage property, for which five deposits have been developed to a high level of confidence (Marianne, Marilyn, Miriam, MSNE and Maryvonne). The IDP is based on detailed pre-feasibility geological studies, metallurgical testing and processing options, mine design, infrastructure, rock mechanics, tailings and heap leach, hydrogeological and environmental impact. Mining schedules have been developed including open pit mining at the Miriam deposit, and room and pillar mining with decline access at a combined 4,020 tonne-per-day production rate from Marianne-Marilyn, MSNE and Maryvonne deposits. The base case mineral processing design is crushing, radiometric sorting, ablation and two-stage tank acid leaching, solvent extraction, with dry stack tailings. Utilizing Cyanex 600 resin allows both uranium oxide yellow cake and by-product molybdenum oxide to be produced as commercial products with acceptable quality for sale.
