Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, October 19, 2021 – Uranium Royalty Corp. (NASDAQ: UROY, TSX-V: URC) (“URC” or the “Company“) announces that it is entering into contracts for an additional four spot purchases totaling 400,000 pounds of U3O8 at an average cost of US$45.00 per pound U3O8. Deliveries will be accomplished in October-December 2021 through book transfers to URC’s storage account at Cameco Corporation’s Fuel Services facilities in Ontario, Canada.
As a result, URC will hold a physical inventory of 1,048,068 pounds U3O8 in the Cameco storage account at a weighted average cost of US$37.64 per pound. The latest Trade Tech daily spot price is at US$47.25 per pound as of October 18, 2021, leading to an increase in the net realizable value of URC’s physical uranium holdings to US$10.07 million.
It is within URC’s mandate to make periodic purchases of physical uranium to provide attractive commodity price exposure to shareholders, especially in these early stages of a bull market in uranium. The global mega-trend towards de-carbonization is providing a major catalyst for carbon-free, safe, and reliable nuclear energy, and market fundamentals are rapidly rebalancing with continued under-investment in new mine capacity and drawdown of excess inventories.
This news release constitutes a “designated news release” for the purposes of the Company’s prospectus supplement dated August 18, 2021 to its short form base shelf prospectus dated June 16, 2021.
