Update Regarding Uracan's Option for Black Lake Project in the Athabasca Basin from UEX Corporation

Trading Symbol: UEX-TSX

VANCOUVER, Feb. 13, 2013 /CNW/ - UEX Corporation (TSX:UEX) ("UEX") is pleased to announce, further to its press release dated January 24, 2013, the satisfaction of the conditions precedent to the effectiveness of the agreement (the "Agreement") between UEX and Uracan Resources Ltd. ("Uracan"), pursuant to which Uracan has acquired the option to earn from UEX a 60% participating interest in the Black Lake Project (the "Project") in northern Saskatchewan.

Pursuant to the Agreement, Uracan has issued a total of 300,000 shares and 150,000 warrants of Uracan to UEX effective February 13, 2013.  Each warrant shall be exercisable for a period of three years from the date of issuance at an exercise price of $0.15 per share.

In order for Uracan to earn its 60% participating interest in the Project, it must incur a total of $10.0 million in exploration expenditures over 10 years.  Uracan has committed to spend $2.0 million on exploration expenditures by December 31, 2014 with a firm commitment to spend $1.5 million even if it decides not to proceed with the earn-in or the Agreement is otherwise terminated.  Any shortfall in the $1.5 million commitment will be payable to UEX.  During the remainder of the option period, minimum expenditures of $1.0 million per year are required.  Uracan will fund the UEX portion of all exploration work until the earn-in option has been completed, after which further work will be funded by the Joint Venture partners.  Uracan will also grant UEX a 1% NSR royalty on Uracan's participating interest, once earned, until such time as an aggregate of $10.0 million in NSR royalty payments are paid to UEX, at which time the NSR royalty will terminate.

About the Project

The Project covers a total of 30,381 hectares within the prolific Athabasca Basin.  Extensive clay alteration zones have been intersected on the property consistent with those associated with uranium mineralization elsewhere in the Athabasca Basin. Prospective structures (reverse faulting on main conductor, east-west cross structures) are also noted throughout the property and are considered good potential hosts for uranium mineralization.

Previous exploration drilling conducted by UEX on the property has intersected significant uranium mineralization in several areas.  Highlights with grades greater than 0.5% U3O8 and a grade thickness of greater than 0.9 include (as previously described in UEX press releases dated October 12, 2004, August 14, 2006, February 27, 2007 and August 21, 2007, respectively):

           
          BL-018: 0.69% U3O8 over 4.4 metres, including 1.96% U3O8 over 0.5 metres;
          BL-082: 0.50% U3O8 over 3.3 metres, including 1.60% U3O8 over 0.7 metres;
          BL-110: 0.79% U3O8 over 2.82 metres; and
          BL-140: 0.67% U3O8 over 3.0 metres, including 1.58% U3O8 over 1.0 metre.
           

These mineralized intervals were encountered at the unconformity between the overlying Proterozoic Athabasca sandstones and underlying Archean/Aphebian basement rocks at downhole depths between 274 metres and 315 metres.

UEX believes that the Project has the potential to host high-grade unconformity-related uranium mineralization.  Extensive exploration potential continues to exist throughout the Project, with numerous additional geophysical and geochemical targets remaining to be drill tested.

Qualified Person and Geochemical Analyses

Technical information in this news release has been reviewed and approved by R. Sierd Eriks, P.Geo., UEX's Vice-President of Exploration, who is a Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101 ("N.I. 43-101") standards.

All samples were analyzed geochemically at the Saskatchewan Research Council Geoanalytical Laboratories in Saskatoon, SK by ICP, with additional uranium analyses by fluorimetry.

About UEX
