enCore Energy Corp. (NYSE-American: EU;TSXV: EU) (the “Company” or “enCore”) announced today that it has made its first delivery into one of the Company’s four previously announced contracted uranium sales agreements.
This delivery of 200,000 pounds U3O8 represents the first portion of the annual deliveries into the 5-year agreement (announced on August 4, 2021) which covers 2 million pounds U3O8 of uranium with significant delivery flexibility for market related pricing.
The Company successfully acquired uranium under favorable pricing terms in 2022 from a third party and delivered it into this agreement using current spot market pricing indicators to establish the sales price.
Paul Goranson, enCore Energy Chief Executive Officer said, “As enCore continues to execute on our pipeline to production strategy, it is also as important to execute on our uranium sales delivery commitments.
This first uranium sales delivery demonstrates the flexibility we have built into this supply agreement, managing our uranium inventories as we advance our South Texas in-situ recovery uranium plants towards production.
This delivery is the first of enCore’s supply agreements planned from 2023 through 2030. Our contracting strategy has relied on spot market linked supply agreements with a portion of those agreements providing price ceilings and floors that are inflation adjusted. This assures that our production costs are protected and provides us the ability to realize higher prices that reflect what we believe will be an improving uranium price environment.”
