BLM Forecasts Decision Date For Lost Creek Project

LITTLETON, Colo., Sept. 2, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Ur-Energy Inc. (TSX:URE, NYSE Amex:URG) The U.S. Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has conveyed to Ur-Energy (or the "Company") its schedule for the completion of an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the Lost Creek Project in order to satisfy its obligations under the National Environmental Policy Act.  The BLM also indicated that it anticipates completion of the Record of Decision for the Lost Creek Plan of Operations early in the summer of 2012.  In order to meet this time frame, the BLM is incorporating by reference portions of the analysis prepared in the Nuclear Regulatory Commission's SEIS, and tiering off of that analysis where applicable.  

The anticipated timing of the BLM approval complements the Company's existing sales agreement and expectation to deliver significant uranium production into the market in 2013.  With the receipt of a detailed and well thought-out work plan from the BLM, the Company is preparing to break ground on the Lost Creek ISR facilities in mid-summer 2012.  Construction will last approximately six to nine months and will be followed immediately by production from the first mine unit.  

"We are pleased to learn that the BLM has set a firm time frame for the completion of its review," states Wayne Heili, President and CEO.  "The level of analysis and detail of the work plan gives us confidence that the BLM will complete its review on this schedule.  Like the NRC which issued its license for Lost Creek last month, I anticipate that the BLM will determine that the Lost Creek Project will be allowed to move forward."
