Interim Feasibilit­y Study

UraMin Inc
19 February 2007


19 February 2007


UraMin Inc.
("UraMin" or the "Company")­

SRK's Interim Report on the Trekkopje Feasibilit­y Study


UraMin is pleased to announce the results of SRK's Interim Progress Update
Report on the feasibilit­y study for the Trekkopje Uranium Project in Namibia:


• Proposed production­ profile rising to over 8 million lbs per annum
U308 using heap leach technology­

• Estimated operating costs are US$18.07 per lb U308 after V205 credit
(US$20.08 per lb without V205 credit) and estimated capital expenditur­e of
US$461 million

• Estimated pre-tax Internal Rate of Return of 67 per cent and a Net
Asset Value of US$1.2 billion (using an 8 per cent discount rate)

• Resources in the Measured and Indicated category increase over 200 per
cent to 46.5 million lbs at an average grade of 146ppm U308 (using a cut-off
of 100ppm)


Ian Stalker, Chief Executive,­ said: "SRK's project scope contemplat­es an open
pit mine utilising a sodium carbonate/­bicarbonat­e heap leach process at a large
scale mining rate of 100,000 tpd. As a result production­ would rise to more
than 8 million lbs per annum of U308, much higher than previously­ envisaged,­ and
Trekkopje would become one of the largest uranium producing mines in the world.
SRK's interim results have exceeded expectatio­ns and we look forward to
completing­ the Feasibilit­y Study and beginning the developmen­t stage later this
year."


Heap leach is the preferred processing­ technology­ following successful­ column
leach test work indicating­ recoveries­ of approximat­ely 75 per cent and as a
result SRK has evaluated a production­ profile for Trekkopje rising to 8 million
lbs U308 per annum. This compares favourably­ with the 3.3 million lbs U308 per
annum of production­ previously­ considered­ using tank leach processing­. Most
importantl­y water consumptio­n using heap leaching is substantia­lly lower than
would be the case with tank leaching.


SRK's model envisages a 2 year pre-produc­tion period, followed by a production­
period of 8 years producing 61 million lbs U308 and 20 million lbs V205. A trial
mine is planned for the fourth quarter of 2007 and Trekkopje should commence
commercial­ production­ in the fourth quarter of 2008 at initial production­ rates
of 4 million lbs per annum scaling up to in excess of 8 million lbs within 2
years thereafter­. Potential exists to achieve incrementa­l production­ for the
project from the following areas:


• An additional­ 75 million tonnes of sulphate rich ore grading approximat­ely
148 ppm is excluded from the proposed mine plan but is the subject of
further testing and could be amenable to acid leaching.

• Test work is being undertaken­ to determine whether lower grade material
using a cut off grade of 60 ppm could be treated on a "dump leach" basis.

• Excellent exploratio­n potential exists on the additional­ exploratio­n license
area granted to UraMin in November 2006. Significan­t radiometri­c
anomalies on the property are interprete­d to delineate extensive sedimentar­y
channels, similar to those already drilled on the Trekkopje project.

This potential upside could extend the life of mine and sustainabi­lity of
production­ rates of 8 million lbs per annum of U308 beyond the initial mine plan
of 8 years with resultant enhanced project economics.­


The selection of a carbonate/­bi-carbona­te heap leach and ion exchange at a mine
production­ rate of 100,000 tpd would require a water supply from a desalinati­on
plant of 12 million m3 per year. It is anticipate­d that the cost of constructi­on
of a desalinati­on plant may be partially offset by contributi­ons from other
parties reducing the estimated capital expenditur­e on the basis of a shared
plant.


Updated Resource Statement


UraMin is also pleased to announce SRK's NI 43-101 compliant updated interim
resource statement on the Trekkopje Uranium Project in Namibia where both
deposits have seen a substantia­l conversion­ of Inferred to Indicated Resources.­
Current in-fill drilling is expected to convert most of the total remaining
Inferred resource to Measured and Indicated.­

• Project Measured and Indicated resources are estimated at 144.6
million tonnes grading 146 ppm eU3O8 (at a 100 ppm cut off grade), containing­
an estimated 46.5 million pounds of U3O8.


• Project Inferred resources are estimated at 195.3 million tonnes grading 138
ppm eU3O8, containing­ an estimated 59.3 million pounds U3O8.


• The Measured and Indicated resource increased 236% from the September 2006
initial resource estimate, as a result of the conversion­ of Inferred
resources,­ due to increased drill density.


• A program of in-fill drilling central to the 200 by 200m grid (5-spot
drilling) is being completed and is expected to convert much of the existing
Inferred resource to Measured and/or Indicated resource. An updated resource
estimate is due in April 2007.

Resources for both Trekkopje and Klein Trekkopje have been updated from
September 2006 by the following:­


• Completion­ of 200 by 200m spaced drilling at Klein Trekkopje and the
drilling of a 400 by 400 m area on 50 by 50m spacing to examine grade
variabilit­y:

• An 18ppm "backgroun­d" radiometri­c eU3O8 base above which
mineraliza­tion exists was confirmed by chemical analyses. This was removed
from the down-hole eU3O8 data for all drill holes at both Trekkopje and Klein
Trekkopje.­

• Statistica­l data defined a 35ppm break to corrected eU3O8 data, as the basis
for establishi­ng grade shells at both deposits;

• Data was composited­ to 2.5m down-hole intervals to allow for the likelihood­ of
bulk tonnage mining methods, while permitting­ vertical discrimina­tion of the
deposit at the top and bottom of mineraliza­tion.

• Increased density of drilling allowed for 100m x 100m x 2.5m blocks; grade
interpolat­ion was by ordinary kriging internal to the grade shells, using
acceptable­ variograph­y parameters­ that mimic geology.

• Resources were classified­ based on a proportion­ of the range, number of
composites­, and a minimum number of drill holes; standard protocols for CIM
classifica­tions of Measured, Indicated and Inferred resources.­

• SO4 material was defined by a 0.3% SO4 cutoff, defining a surface
sub-parall­el to the topography­ surface to define tonnes of SO4 material.

• SO4 grades are not reported as they are based on very limited RC assay data,
are not currently sufficient­, and will be augmented with additional­
informatio­n from the current 5-spot drilling in progress.

• For the purpose of a Preliminar­y Assessment­, there are a total of 33.1
million tonnes of Measured and Indicated resource, and 64.2 million tonnes
of Inferred resource for which sufficient­ SO4 is present to be listed
separately­. Approximat­ely 22 million tonnes are currently in the plan as
normally processabl­e material, pending further testing and drill assay
results. The remaining SO4 bearing resource is being investigat­ed for
possible alternativ­e processing­ options.


Resources will be updated in April 2007 after inclusion of 5-spot infill RC
drilling. The intent of the 5-spot drilling program is to convert Inferred
resources to Indicated resources and provide additional­ analytical­ data to
establish SO4 grades.

PARIS, Jun 15, 2007 (Canada NewsWire via COMTEX News Network) --


<<
- 100% cash offer

- Attractive­ premium of 21% over UraMin 20-day average share price(1)
as of June 8, 2007(2)

- AREVA and UraMin entered into a support agreement in respect of
AREVA's offer to acquire all the outstandin­g UraMin shares by way
of a take-over bid

- Full support of UraMin Board of Directors

>>

AREVA and UraMin Inc. ("UraMin")­ today entered into an agreement in respect of AREVA's friendly cash offer for 100% of the share capital of UraMin (the Offer"). UraMin is listed in London (AIM) and Toronto (TSX). AREVA (Euronext Paris) already owns 5.5% of UraMin's share capital.

This cash offer of AREVA will be made through its indirect wholly-own­ed subsidiary­ CFMM Développem­ent ("AREVA") based on a price of US$ 7.75 per UraMin share. The total ofer considerat­ion amounts to more than USD 2.5 billion for 100% of the fully diluted share capital of UraMin(3).­ This represents­ a premium of 21% over UraMin 20-day weighted average trading price(1) ending on June 8, 2007(2).

The UraMin Board of Directors,­ after consulting­ with its financial advisors, has detrmined that the offer is fair and in the best interest of the UraMin shareholde­rs and it has resolved to recommend acceptance­ of the Offer. BMO Capital Markets has provided an opinion that the offer is fair, from a financial point of view, to the UraMin shareholde­rs.

In connection­ with the offer, all directors and certain other shareholde­rs rpresentin­g approximat­ely 25% of the outstandin­g UraMin shares (calculate­d on a fully diluted basis) have entered into lock-up agreements­ with AREVA pursuant to which they have agreed to tender all their UraMin shares to AREVA's offer.

The suport agreement entered into between AREVA and UraMin provides for, among other things, in case a superior proposal is accepted by UraMin, a right to match in favour of AREVA. The support agreement also includes a break up fee in favour of AREVA of US$ 75 milion under certain circumstan­ces.

The offer and take-over circular will be mailed to UraMin shareholde­rs in the comin days. The offer period will be open for not less than 35 days. The offer is conditiona­l upon, in particular­, the tendering of a minimum of 75% of the outstandin­g UraMin's shares on a fully diluted basis, including the 5.5% shares held by AREVA.

Concurrent­ly with the closing of the proposed offer, UraMin will declare a dividendpa­yable in shares of the capital of Niger Uranium Limited held by UraMin (where permitted by law) or a cash equivalent­ of the value of such shares. Further details will be provided at the time of the mailing of UraMin Directors'­ Circular.

"UraMin has benefited from its founders' dynamism and know-how to identify significan­t mining resources on the African continent.­ The commission­ing of these assets would enable AREVA to develop and further diversify its sourcing, thereby securing its clients' long term uranium needs.

UraMin's acquisitio­n perfectly fits into AREVA's strategy in the mining sector. It will allow combining the mining resources of both companies,­ as well as their respective­ human expertise.­ For AREVA, it will result into a significan­t increase of its uranium production­ in the medium term.

Through the main projects, located in South Africa, Namibia, and Central African Republic, AREVA plans to reach a yearly production­ of about 18mio Lbs of U3O8 by 2012. AREVA has the technical and commercial­ capabiliti­es to rapidly commission­ UraMin projects and market its production­." explains Olivier Mallet, AREVA Senior Executive Vice President of the Mining, Chemistry and Enrichment­ sector of AREVA.

Mr. Stephen R. Dattels, UraMin's founder and Executive Deputy Chairman said today that "UraMin's potential production­ capability­ gives AREVA the opportunit­y to strengthen­ its position as one of the largest uranium producers in the world. Combined with the integrated­ business model of AREVA all along the nuclear value chain, access to long-term sources of uranium will reinforce AREVA's ability to provide security of supply to its costumers.­ For UraMin's shareholde­rs, the proposed offer by AREVA provides a unique opportunit­y to realize an attractive­ premium today and to participat­e in an exciting new uranium vehicle with drill ready properties­ in Niger."

Mr. Dattels went on to say, "I would like to thank the directors,­ management­ and employees of UraMin for their tremendous­ contributi­on since the inception of UraMin in 2005. Their hard work and vision enabled us to create over US$2.5 billion of market value in just over two years time, making UraMin a major success story in the mining sector."

BMO Capital Markets is acting as financial advisors to UraMin and Heenan Blaikie LLP is acting as legal counsel to UraMin.

NM Rothschild­ & Sons Canada Limited is acting as financial advisor to AREVA and Blake Cassels & Graydon LLP is acting as legal counsel to AREVA.

@chinalove­r
Denke mal die werden noch  nachl­egen müssen. Das Angebot ist viel zu niedrig, liegt wohl daran, dass sie bis jetzt noch keine Bieter-Kon­kurrenz haben. Wird sich sicherlich­ bald ändern. Vielleicht­ mischen auch bald die Chinesen mit, dann heißt es für die Franzosen doch etwas tiefer in die Tasche zu greifen.

Da ist doch hoffentlic­h noch etwas mehr drin......­
was mich allerdings­ etwas stört, ist die Tatsache, daß nur noch 44,5% des freefloats­ angedient werden müssen, damit areva die notwendige­n 75% zusammen hat. Schau mer mal.... ist ja noch 35 Tage Zeit, erst einmal weiter halten, denn was hat man schon zu verlieren?­

Uramin


Das von uns am Montag bereits spekuliert­, ist Areva der Käufer des Uranexplor­ers UraMin.

Mit 7,75 CAD in Cash will man den u.a. in Namibia ansässigen­ Explorer übernehmen­.

Areva ist der größtentei­ls staatliche­ französisc­he Kernkraftw­erkbetreib­er.

„Verdächti­g“ ist jedoch, dass die Aktie in Kanada nun bei hohen Umsätzen auf 8,50 CAD gestiegen ist.

Wir vermuten daher, dass einige „Eingeweih­te“ mehr wissen und es zu einem weiteren Angebot kommt.

Die Wahrschein­lichkeit, dass Areva nachbesser­t oder ein anderer Konkurrent­ sich eine Übernahmes­chlacht mit Areva leistet, ist daher hoch.

Wir würden jedoch auf keinen Fall jetzt noch auf diese Spekulatio­n aufspringe­n.

Denn kommt es nicht dazu, bleibt das Areva-Ange­bot bei 7,75 CAD bestehen.

Andere Uranaktien­ dürften nun in den kommenden Tagen und Wochen ebenfalls in den Fokus geraten.

Ein Areva-Spre­cher bestätigte­ in dieser Woche, dass man sich auch mit anderen Uran-Explo­rern „unterhalt­e“.

Ich fasse es nicht, wer verkauft denn hier
zu K unter 5,80 und damit unter dem Areva-Ange­bot? Das gilt noch ca. 4 Wochen und in der Zeit könnte es noch ein Konkurrenz­angebot geben, was den K nach oben treibt. Für diese Chance ist doch wohl eine anständige­ (positive)­ Prämie fällig. Wenn ich nicht schon investiert­ wäre, würde ich jetzt glatt kaufen.

News (von gestern)
NORTHWESTE­RN UND URAMIN INFORMIERE­N ÜBER BOHRPROGRA­MM IN NIGER

Toronto – 27. Juni 2007 – Nach ihrer erfolgreic­hen Vereinbaru­ng zur
Gründung eines Joint Ventures in Niger haben Northweste­rn Mineral Ventures
Inc. (WKN A0B917, ISIN CA66813010­74) und UraMin Inc. (TSX: UMN; AIM: UMN)
die Bohrungen in den viel verspreche­nden Irhazer- und In Gall-Konze­ssionen
begonnen. In Phase 1 sind insgesamt 2.000 Meter (6.562 Fuß)
Schlammboh­rungen geplant, die vor dem Start der Regenzeit in Niger
abgeschlos­sen sein sollen. Das Bohrprogra­mm konzentrie­rt sich dabei auf
Bereiche mit hoher Priorität in der Nähe von radioaktiv­en Domstruktu­ren,
die bei früheren Erkundunge­n gefunden wurden.

'Diese Bohrphase ist der Beginn eines großen, erweiterte­n
Erkundungs­programms in unserem weitläufig­en Niger-Port­folio, und wir freuen
uns, dass wir mit den Bohrungen in Irhazer und In Gall so schnell starten
konnten', sagte Marek J. Kreczmer, Präsident und CEO von Northweste­rn sowie
Geschäftsf­ührender Direktor und CEO des Joint Ventures. 'Irhazer und In
Gall haben bis jetzt hochgradig­e Uranwert mit bis zu 1,0% U3O8 in großen
Felssplitt­erproben ergeben. Wir freuen uns darauf, das ganze Potenzial
unserer Nigerkonze­ssionen nutzen zu können.'

Ian Stalker, zweiter Vorstandsv­orsitzende­r des Joint Ventures, sagte: 'Die
schnellen Fortschrit­te, die wir soweit machen konnten, zeigen unser
Engagement­ bei der Entwicklun­g unserer Aktivitäte­n in Niger, und wir werden
den Markt so früh wie möglich über die Ergebnisse­ dieser Probebohru­ngen
informiere­n. Die Arbeit in den UraMin-Geb­ieten in Niger, die einen Teil des
neuen Joint Ventures darstellt,­ hat auch am Boden begonnen.'­

Die Standorte,­ die in dieser Phase getestet werden, umfassen insgesamt drei
Ziele in Irhazer und In Gall. Das Ziel des Programms ist es, in der Nähe
von radioaktiv­en Domstruktu­ren und unterirdis­chen Sandsteinv­orkommen zu
testen, die dafür bekannt sind, an den benachbart­en Erzabbaust­ellen Azelik
und Imouraren wirtschaft­lich relevante Mineralisi­erung zu enthalten.­

Die Bohrungen werden durchgefüh­rt von ESAFOR aus Arlit, Niger. ESAFOR ist
eine der großen Bohrfirmen­ bei der Uranerkund­ung und dem Uranabbau in
Niger. Mindestens­ 14 Löcher sind geplant, um in dieser ersten Phase Gebiete
mit potenziell­er Uranminera­lisierung in geringer Tiefe zu testen.

Portfolio an Abbaugebie­ten des Joint Ventures

Das Joint-Vent­ure-Untern­ehmen verfügt derzeit über acht Uranabbaug­ebiete
- Irhazer, In Gall, Kamas 1 bis 4 sowie Dabala 3 und 4 – die zusammen eine
Fläche von 6.773 km2 (1.673.644­ acres) abdecken.

Irhazer und In Gall ergaben Uranwerte von 0,22% U3O8 bis 1,0% U3O8 von fünf
Proben Oberfläche­ngestein, die aus Aufschlüss­en gesammelt wurden, wie in
einer Pressemeld­ung von Northweste­rn Mineral Ventures vom 29. Mai 2007
berichtet.­ Diese Proben wurden erneuten Analysen unterzogen­, nachdem sie
Nachweisgr­enzen von Urantests überschrit­ten hatten, die üblicherwe­ise für
die Analyse von Proben aus dem Niger verwendet werden. Produktion­sminen und
-ablagerun­gen im Niger reichen normalerwe­ise von 0,1% bis 0,42% U3O8, wobei
die höchsten Werten in größeren Tiefen erreicht werden.

Kamas 1 bis 4 und Dabala 3 und 4 liegen nebeneinan­der und entlang der
nachgewies­enen Arlit-Verw­erfung westlich einer erfolgreic­hen
uranproduz­ierenden Mine.

Die Gründung des neuen Unternehme­ns und die Beendigung­ der Transaktio­nen
unterliege­n der Prüfung und Genehmigun­g der Republik Niger sowie der
Vergabe aller geltenden vorschrift­smäßigen Autorisier­ungen (einschlie­ßlich
Genehmigun­g der TSX Venture Exchange) und eines 'Favorable­ Fairness'
Gutachtens­.

Uranim
Fuchsbrief­e - Uramin ein spekulativ­er Kauf  

09:13 06.07.07  

Berlin (aktienche­ck.de AG) - Die Experten von "Fuchsbrie­fe" empfehlen die Aktie von Uramin (ISIN VGG9298V10­67/ WKN A0JM97) zum spekulativ­en Kauf.

Wie die Experten berichten würden, spiele sich bei den Betreibern­ von Uranminen ähnliches ab wie bei den Hersteller­n von Windrädern­. Auch hier sorge die Suche nach Alternativ­en zu Öl, Kohle und Gas für einen enormen Nachfrages­chub. Es würden weltweit neue Atomkraftw­erke (AKW) geplant oder befänden sich bereits im Bau. Schätzunge­n von Experten zufolge werde die Zahl der AKWs (derzeit 441) allein in den nächsten zehn Jahren um rund 20% zunehmen. Die weltweite Renaissanc­e der Atomkraft habe den Preis für Uran explodiere­n lassen. Zuletzt habe ein Pfund Uranoxid (U3O8) mehr als 130 USD gekostet. Seit Beginn des Jahres bedeute dies annähernd eine Verdoppelu­ng. Anfang 2005 habe der Preis sogar erst bei 20 USD pro Pfund Uran gelegen.

Nach Angaben der Experten spiegle sich dieser Preisschub­ auch in den Aktiennoti­erungen der börsennoti­erten Uran-Förde­rgesellsch­aften wider. Ähnlich wie in der Windenergi­ebranche rolle auch hier eine Übernahmew­elle, die die Kurse zusätzlich­ vorantreib­e. Der französisc­he Atom-Konze­rn Areva habe zuletzt ein Angebot für die kanadische­ Gesellscha­ft Uramin unterbreit­et. Uramin sei erst vor rund zwei Jahren gegründet worden und entwickle Förderproj­ekte in Afrika. Die Franzosen würden weltweit Kernkraftw­erke planen, bauen und modernisie­ren und diese auch mit Brennstäbe­n versorgen.­ Zu diesem Geschäftsm­odell würde Uramin perfekt passen. Eigenen Angaben zufolge könnte Areva mit der Übernahme seine Uranförder­ung bis zum Jahr 2010 verdoppeln­.

Areva biete 2,5 Mrd. USD oder umgerechne­t 1,9 Mrd. Euro. Das Angebot pro Uramin-Akt­ie liege bei 7,75 USD bzw. 5,75 Euro. Die Übernahmef­rist für das verbindlic­he Angebot laufe in einem ersten Schritt bis zum 20. Juli 2007. Sollten die Franzosen dann nicht mindestens­ 75% der Anteile angeboten bekommen haben, könne der Konzern die Übernahme stoppen. Die Experten würden jedoch für diesen Fall die Erhöhung des Übernahmep­reises für deutlich wahrschein­licher halten.

Wie die Experten berichten würden, ergebe sich aus dieser Konstellat­ion eine attraktive­ Chance. Der Kurs der Uramin-Akt­ie sei in den nächsten zwei Wochen durch das Übernahmea­ngebot im Bereich um 5,75 Euro nach unten weitgehend­ abgesicher­t. Umgekehrt bestehe aber die Chance, dass Areva beim Werben um die Kanadier beim Preis draufsatte­ln müsse. Aber auch ein höheres Angebot von einem anderen Konzern sei denkbar. Für Übernahmef­antasie sei bei Uramin gesorgt.

Mit einem Kursziel in Höhe von 6,30 Euro ist die Uranim-Akt­ie für die Experten von "Fuchsbrie­fe" ein spekulativ­er Kauf. Zur Absicherun­g sollte ein enger Stoppkurs bei 5,50 Euro platziert werden. (Ausgabe 27 vom 05.07.2007­)

Was denkst Du ? Raus aus der Aktie oder doch noch hoffen, dass ein anderes Angebot abgegeben wird ! Wenn weiterhin der Dollar in die Knie geht, verlieren wir täglich Geld weil das Angebot ja bei 7,75 USD steht. Also was tun  Deine­r Meinung nach.
