Uranium Energy Corp. (NYSEMKT:UEC) continues to make rapid gains since reversing off $1.02 lows last year. The stock has a history of big moves running from pennies to over $7 in 2009.
On May 27 UEC announced the Palangana ISR Mine has received the required permits, and is now fully permitted for extraction in new resource areas with a larger Mine Permit and Aquifer Exemption. The expanded mine area boundary is now 8,722 acres versus 6,200 acres previously and includes Production Area-4 (PA-4). As previously reported, 296 drill holes have been completed inside of PA-4 to delineate three mineralized trends. Wellfield design is being finalized in preparation for installment of the first module inside this new production area.
President and CEO Amir Adnani stated, “UEC is well positioned for ongoing expansion of uranium throughput at our centralized Hobson processing plant when full-scale production resumes. With the Burke Hollow Project making significant resource and permitting progress, there’s a substantial pipeline developing to support our hub-and-spoke growth plans.”
Uranium Energy Corp. (NYSEMKT:UEC) is a U.S.-based uranium mining and exploration company. UEC fully licensed and permitted Hobson processing facility is central to all of its projects in South Texas, including the operating Palangana in-situ recovery mine and the Goliad in-situ recovery project which is currently in construction.
UEC has been making acquisitions in high Uranium producing areas such as Texas Wyoming, New Mexico, Arizona and Colorado. The Company has developed a unique form of mining called In-Situ Recovery or “ISR” during which fluid is injected into the ore and the solution is extracted for processing. Ultimately reducing overhead costs and minimizing wasted ore.
Company CEO is Amir Adnani and he has taken the Company from conception to production in very little time. UEC is also a low cost producer of Uranium coming in at around $16 per pound putting the Company in a potentially spectacular situation once Uranium goes back towards its highs over $65 a pound. The Company’s plants are capable of producing more than 2 million pounds of uranium annually.
After the Tsunami in Japan led to the Fukushima nuclear disasters, the market for Uranium collapsed falling well below the $30 per pound mark. Investors without much foresight gave up on Uranium and it dropped well over 50% off its $65 highs.

Currently near its lows the spot price of Uranium is rising dramatically. Wall street is waking up and realizing that Uranium might just be the hottest ticket in town; the demand for electricity is exploding globally and with a shrinking supply of fossil fuels Governments will turn to Nuclear Energy and the demand for Uranium will explode.
UEC announced on November 20 that it has entered into an agreement to acquire a proprietary Uranium Project Database from Vico Uranium Corp. (“Vico”), a private British Columbia corporation. The database, which was developed and maintained over the last ten years, contains detailed information on over 1,000 uranium projects globally. Uranium Standard plans to utilize this database to execute its strategy of acquiring a substantial portfolio of high-quality uranium resources at deeply discounted valuations.
Globally there are 70 new nuclear reactors currently under construction all of which 29 are being built in China, 6 in India, and more than 9 in other Asian countries.
The recent catalyst for the run on Uranium was caused by H.C. Wainwright analyst Jeffrey Wright call that uranium spot prices could rise above $50/lb. over the next 12 months and the recent announcement by the Japanese Government that it will restart of the two-reactor Sendai nuclear plant operated by Kyushu Electric.
