Uranerz Energy Corporation was incorporated under the laws of the State of Nevada on May 26, 1999. On July 5, 2005, it changed its name from Carleton Ventures Corp. to Uranerz Energy Corporation. The Company is U.S.-based Uranium Company focused on achieving near-term commercial in-situ recovery ('ISR') uranium production. ISR is a mining process that uses a 'leaching solution' to dissolve uranium from sandstone uranium deposits; it is the generally accepted extraction technology used in the Powder River Basin area of Wyoming. It controls a land position in the Pumpkin Buttes Uranium Mining District of the central Powder River Basin of Wyoming, U.S.A. The Company is mainly focused on the development of its properties in the Powder River Basin area into commercial ISR uranium mines. In November 2011 it signed a processing agreement with Cameco Resources ('Cameco'), a wholly-owned Wyoming subsidiary of Cameco Corporation. Under the agreement it will deliver uranium-loaded resin produced from the Company's Nichols Ranch ISR Uranium Project to Cameco's Smith Ranch Highland uranium mine for final processing into dried uranium concentrate packaged for shipping to a converter. The processing of Uranerz' loaded resin at Cameco's facility will not change the Company's production plans as it will retain the regulatory and physical flexibility to install a full processing plant at the Nichols Ranch ISR mine at a later date. As a result of this agreement, Uranerz will only install the ion-exchange circuit and the well-field makeup circuit at this time at the Nichols Ranch central processing plant. Cameco's Smith Ranch Highland mine is located in the Powder River Basin approximately 25 air miles south of Uranerz' Nichols Ranch ISR Uranium Project. The Jane Dough unit is compatible with this plan. It competes with other mining and exploration companies in connection with the acquisition of uranium mineral properties and the equipment, materials and personnel necessary to explore and develop such properties. The Company's uranium mineral exploration and development activities are, and its production activities will be, subject to extensive laws and regulations governing exploration, development, production, exports, taxes, labor standards, occupational health, waste disposal, protection and remediation of the environment, protection of endangered and protected species, mine safety, toxic substances and other matters. The Company's exploration and production activities are subject to certain federal and state laws and regulations relating to environmental quality and pollution control.
