Uranerz Energy Corp. has released its financial results for the quarter ended Sept. 30, 2012, as filed with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and in Canada with the Canadian securities administrators (on SEDAR).
Subsequent to the third quarter-end, the company received its Class I underground injection control (deep disposal well) permit from the Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality for the Nichols Ranch in-situ recovery uranium project located in the Powder River basin of Wyoming, United States. The company now has all of the regulatory permits and licences needed to construct and operate an ISR uranium mine in Wyoming. Construction of the Nichols Ranch ISR mine is nearing completion, and uranium production is targeted to commence in 2013.
On Nov. 6, 2012, the Wyoming Business Council recommended approval of the company's application for a $20-million loan under the State of Wyoming's Industrial Development Bond financing program. The loan will be repayable over seven years and bear interest at a rate of 4.25 per cent. Final approval for the loan is subject to the completion of due diligence and satisfaction of various other state approvals.
