Tim Termuende, P.Geo., President and CEO of Eagle Plains commented recently on the transactions: “we are pleased to have concluded the recent sales of specific uranium dispositions in various areas of the Athabasca Basin in Saskatchewan. As many of the claims were not individually significant to Eagle Plains, in most cases, they were strategically located and formed important “pieces of the puzzle” to purchasers who have existing contiguous claim packages. By completing the transactions while retaining significant royalty interests in most cases and by receiving shares in partner companies currently valued at approximately CDN$460,000, Eagle Plains has essentially mitigated all risk inherent with exploration of the projects, but maintains considerable upside exposure”
