Department of Commerce Completes Section 232 Investigation on Uranium

17.04.2019  |  Accesswire

VANCOUVER, April 17, 2019 - Azarga Uranium Corp. (TSX: AZZ, OTCQB: AZZUF, FRA: P8AA) ("Azarga Uranium" or the "Company") understands that on 14 April 2019, the United States Department of Commerce (the "DOC") completed its investigation into the effects of uranium imports on United States national security and submitted the report to the White House. The United States President has up to 90 days from 14 April 2019 to act on the DOC's recommendations.

The DOC investigation was undertaken in response to a petition filed by two United States uranium mining companies. The petition proposed that certain remedies be implemented including a quota that reserves 25% of the United States uranium market for uranium mined in the United States and a "Buy American" policy for United States government entities that use uranium. The Company understands that the DOC report, including any recommendations, has not been made public.

Blake Steele, President and CEO, stated: "We await with interest the President's decision on the DOC recommendations, which are not known at this time. As this process is outside of the Company's control, we will continue to focus on executing our corporate strategy. Our focus remains on advancing our initial development priority, the Dewey Burdock in-situ recovery uranium project in South Dakota, USA, with progression of permitting and preparation of an updated preliminary economic assessment based on the significant resource increase reported in Q4 2018, quantifying the uranium mineralization identified at our Dewey Terrace Project, which is located directly adjacent to the Dewey Burdock Project and continuing the evaluation of in-situ recovery development options at our Gas Hills Project."
