TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Feb. 23, 2012) -
NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO US NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES
Energy Fuels Inc. (TSX:EFR) ("Energy Fuels"") and Titan Uranium Inc. (TSX VENTURE:TUE) ("Titan") are pleased to announce that Titan completed the sale of its Canadian assets to Mega Uranium Ltd. (TSX:MGA) ("Mega") today. In the transaction, Titan conveyed several prospective uranium properties located in Saskatchewan's Athabasca Basin and in Nunavut to Mega in exchange for 10,000,000 common shares of Mega.
The sale of these assets was a condition to the closing of the Plan of Arrangement between Titan and Energy Fuels. Under the Arrangement, Titan will become a wholly-owned subsidiary of Energy Fuels, and 10,000,000 shares of Mega will accrue to Energy Fuels.
Stephen P. Antony, President and CEO of Energy Fuels stated: "The sale of Titan's Canadian assets to Mega was a key condition of the Titan merger. These properties are outside of Energy Fuels' area of focus, and Mega is a strong, well-managed company that can move these properties into eventual production and achieve excellent shareholder value."
As previously reported, the Plan of Arrangement was approved by shareholders of Energy Fuels on February 10, 2012, and by shareholders of Titan on February 14, 2012. The application by Titan for the final court order approving the Arrangement was approved on February 21, 2012. Energy Fuels and Titan will close the transaction on February 29th, 2012.
