Uranium Resources Comes To Agreement With Navajo Nation

Uranium Resources, Inc. (NASDAQ: URRE) (“URI” or the “Company”), announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary Hydro Resources, Inc. (HRI) has come to agreement with the Navajo Nation regarding temporary access for its Churchrock Section 8 property. The Temporary Access Agreement (“Agreement”) is intended by both parties to settle the alleged trespass issue related to the Notice of Violation and Order to Comply with the Navajo Nation Civil Trespass Act received by the Company on April 5, 2012. Access provided under the Agreement is for regulatory requirements to include on site visits with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, but does not allow for any construction activities or earth disturbances.

Reviewing the significance of the progress made to date in discussions with the Navajo Nation, Don Ewigleben, President and CEO of URI, noted, “We have been involved in extensive and meaningful conversations with members of the Navajo Nation and its government rather than taking the approach to litigate jurisdictional authority and believe this agreement is a solid first step toward helping address the legacy issues left behind by previous uranium mining, while enabling us to move forward with our project.”

Under the terms and for the duration of this agreement, HRI has agreed to the jurisdiction of the Navajo Nation. HRI also offered to complete remediation of any radioactive contamination on Sections 17 or 8 prior to commencing in situ leach recovery on Section 8.

Mr. Ewigleben added, “While there is much yet to be accomplished in order for us to advance our project forward, we believe the agreement we have reached with the Navajo Nation is of significance and indicates a willingness by both parties to work toward finding a mutually beneficial solution. We are currently developing cost estimates and timelines for the remediation. Given the many issues yet to be agreed upon and the need to determine a time line for the remediation, we are also revisiting our present schedule which has projected Churchrock Section 8 production commencing by the fourth quarter of 2013.
