Azarga’s Investee Company Black Range Minerals Receives Takeover Proposal

January 30, 2015 3:10 pm

AZARGA URANIUM CORP. ("Azarga" or the "Company") notes that one of its investee companies, Black Range Minerals Limited ("Black Range"), has today received a takeover proposal from Western Uranium Corporation ("Western Uranium").

Black Range is listed on the Australian Stock Exchange under the ticker BLR. Its primary assets are the Hansen/Taylor Ranch uranium project in Colorado and a 50% interest in a uranium ore processing technology venture, Ablation Technologies. With a current interest of 17.3%, Azarga is Black Range's largest shareholder.

Based on the terms in Black Range's press release, the takeover proposal would value Azarga's shareholding in Black Range at approximately US$2.4 million. Azarga also has a loan extended to Black Range in the amount of approximately US$0.5 million (the "Azarga Loan"). As part of the proposed takeover, Western Uranium is providing Black Range with a loan facility, a portion of which will be used on closing to pay back half of the Azarga Loan.

Azarga recognizes the potential benefits of a combination between Black Range and Western Uranium and is broadly supportive of the proposal. As a result, the Company will engage with both Western Uranium and Black Range to understand the terms of the proposal in more detail.
