- Niger’s excellent infrastructure to support mining and the efficiency of their mine permitting process;
- the speed of development at Dasa, with the 2021 expectation for permitting in Q1, the completion of all engineering and geotechnical work prior to collaring a portal in early 2022;
- the high-grade, long-life potential of the Dasa Project as defined by drilling results and this year’s Preliminary Economic Assessment;
- Dasa’s projected low costs that would allow the mine to be profitable at, and even well below, today’s uranium spot price;
- the positive outlook for uranium supply and demand;
- the potential cash contribution of the Company’s zinc recovery JV once the 2019 expansion has been paid;
- the financing optionality the Company has given its potential to:
- develop the Dasa mine and mill in phases;
- leverage relationships and existing facilities in Niger; and
- leverage the future cash flow from the Company’s zinc business.
