Energy Fuels is a leading U.S.-based uranium mining company, supplying U3O8 to major nuclear utilities. Energy Fuels also produces vanadium from certain of its projects, as market conditions warrant, and is ramping up commercial-scale production of REE carbonate. Its corporate offices are in Lakewood, Colorado, near Denver, and all its assets and employees are in the United States. Energy Fuels holds three of America’s key uranium production centers: the White Mesa Mill in Utah, the Nichols Ranch in-situ recovery (“ISR”) Project in Wyoming, and the Alta Mesa ISR Project in Texas. The White Mesa Mill is the only conventional uranium mill operating in the U.S. today, has a licensed capacity of over 8 million pounds of U3O8 per year, has the ability to produce vanadium when market conditions warrant, as well as REE carbonate from various uranium-bearing ores. The Nichols Ranch ISR Project is on standby and has a licensed capacity of 2 million pounds of U3O8 per year. The Alta Mesa ISR Project is also on standby and has a licensed capacity of 1.5 million pounds of U3O8 per year. In addition to the above production facilities, Energy Fuels also has one of the largest NI 43-101 compliant uranium resource portfolios in the U.S. and several uranium and uranium/vanadium mining projects on standby and in various stages of permitting and development. The primary trading market for Energy Fuels’ common shares is the NYSE American under the trading symbol “UUUU,” and the Company’s common shares are also listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the trading symbol “EFR.” Energy Fuels’ website is www.energyfuels.com.

Energy Fuels reported financial results for the quarter and the year that were largely expected. Earnings for 2024 were $99.8 million or $0.62 per share. However, the positive results were due to a $119 million or $0.73 per share nonrecurring gain on the sale of property. Excluding the sale, the company would have reported a $20 million or $0.12 per share loss for the year. Quarterly losses were slightly higher than expected on limited sales.

Energy Fuel’s liquidity position has grown dramatically in recent quarters. As of December 31, 2023, the company had $222.34 million of working capital and no debt. With such a large liquidity position, the company is well positioned to expand operations without seeking external financing. This includes restarting uranium mining operations but could also fund all or most of the proposed REE Oxide circuit expansion.
