enCore Energy Corp. (“enCore” or the “Company”) (NYSE American:EU) (TSXV:EU)) today announced that enCore’s Chief Operating Officer, Peter Luthiger, testifies today before the Texas State House Committee on Natural Resources regarding two bills of importance to the uranium industry.

Both bills are sponsored by Texas State Representative Ryan Guillen. Mr. Luthiger, who is also Chairman of the Texas Mining and Reclamation Association (TMRA), testifies both on behalf of enCore and TMRA’s Uranium Mining Committee.

Bill HB 4119 would enhance the administrative procedure for permitting in-situ recovery (ISR) of uranium by clarifying the public’s ability to participate in one fulsome and transparent hearing. Bill HB 4120 would allow the Texas Council on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) staff to inspect a proposed well site using aerial or satellite imagery, or other appropriate sources, rather than conducting an on-site visit.

The bills would make the administrative process more efficient, reduce staff time and conserve groundwater that would otherwise be consumed in reclamation activities during the permitting process.

enCore Energy’s Chief Executive Officer, Paul Goranson, stated “Working together with our Texas State Representatives and the Texas Mining and Reclamation Association is extremely important to enhance and improve our regulatory environment.

While Texas is one of the most favorable states for in-situ recovery of uranium, we always seek ways to work together to ensure we maintain Texas as a leading jurisdiction.

At all times enCore seeks to work to ensure our company leads the way to provide the people of Texas and the United States with a reliable and environmentally-responsible source of material for nuclear energy, fueling the future.”
