1.Nature of Operations
Ur-Energy Inc. was incorporated on March 22, 2004 under the laws of the Province of Ontario. It was continued under the Canada Business Corporations Act on August 8, 2006. Ur-Energy Inc. and its wholly-owned subsidiaries Ur-Energy USA Inc.; NFU Wyoming, LLC; Lost Creek ISR, LLC; NFUR Bootheel, LLC; Hauber Project LLC; NFUR Hauber, LLC; and Pathfinder Mines Corporation (collectively, the “Company”) is an exploration stage mining company as defined by U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) Industry Guide 7. We are headquartered in Littleton, Colorado. The Company is engaged in uranium mining and recovery operations, with activities including acquisition, exploration, development and operations of uranium mineral properties located in Wyoming. The Company commenced uranium production at its Lost Creek Project in August 2013.
Due to the nature of the uranium mining methods we use on the Lost Creek Property, and the definition of “mineral reserves” under the SEC Industry Guide 7, the Company has not determined whether the Lost Creek Property contains mineral reserves. However, the Company’s June 17, 2015 NI 43-101 “Technical Report for the Lost Creek Property, Sweetwater County, Wyoming,” outlines the potential viability of the Lost Creek Property. As well, the Company’s January 27, 2015 NI 43-101 Technical Report on Shirley Basin, “Preliminary Economic Assessment of Shirley Basin Uranium Project Carbon County, Wyoming, USA” (the “Shirley Basin PEA”), outlines the potential viability of the Shirley Basin Project. The recoverability of amounts recorded for mineral properties is dependent upon the discovery of economic resources, the ability of the Company to obtain the necessary financing to develop the properties and upon attaining future profitable production from the properties or sufficient proceeds from disposition of the properties.
The entire disclosure for the nature of an entity's business, major products or services, principal markets including location, and the relative importance of its operations in each business and the basis for the determination, including but not limited to, assets, revenues, or earnings. For an entity that has not commenced principal operations, disclosures about the risks and uncertainties related to the activities in which the entity is currently engaged and an understanding of what those activities are being directed toward.
