Vancouver, BC, Canada - December 2, 2021 – Uranium Royalty Corp. (NASDAQ: UROY, TSX-V: URC) is pleased to announce that it has entered into a Supply Stream Agreement with CGN Global Uranium Limited to purchase 500,000 pounds of U308 from CGN delivered at Cameco from 2023 through 2025 at a weighted average price of $47.71 per pound (fixed prices and delivery dates). 300,000 pounds of U308 will be delivered on October 20, 2023, and additional 100,000 pounds of U308 each to be delivered on June 14, 2024 and April 2, 2025.
CGN Global (subsidiary of CGN Mining Company Limited) is the overseas nuclear fuel business platform of China General Nuclear Power Group (CGN), the world’s third largest, and China’s biggest nuclear power operator with 25 units in operation (28.26GWe installed capacity). CGN is also one of the world’s largest nuclear power constructors with 6 units (7GWe installed capacity) under construction and has uranium production ownership interests in the Husab Mine in Namibia and the Ortalyk, Irkol and Semizbay Operations in Kazakhstan.
Scott Melbye, CEO, commented: “In addition to attractive pricing, this strategic supply stream will provide URC with access to physical uranium in a timeframe, 2023-2025, where industry analysts forecast large 45-50 million pound annual supply deficits between production and reactor requirements at a time utility procurement volumes are expected to return to higher levels. As payment is made at the time of delivery, it requires no cash outlay today.”
Mr. Melbye continued: “This transaction establishes another key relationship with one of the world’s leading nuclear energy companies, which combined with our existing Kazatomprom supply options through Yellow Cake Plc, positions URC with access to world-class, flexible, uranium supplies.
