Ur-Energy Announces New Venture at its Hauber Project with Bayswater Uranium

DENVER, COLORADO--(Marketwire - Dec. 1, 2009) - Ur-Energy Inc. (TSX:URE)(NYSE Amex:URG)(Ur-Energy" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that Bayswater Uranium Corporation (TSX VENTURE:BAY)("Bayswater") has joined the Company's wholly-owned subsidiary, Hauber Project LLC (the "Hauber Project"), as an earn-in member and Manager.

The Company's properties at the Hauber Project, in Crook County Wyoming, include 205 unpatented lode mining claims and one State of Wyoming Uranium Lease, for a combined total of approximately 5160 acres. The properties occur in an area of identified uranium occurrences in the Lakota and Fall River formations, and are along the trend of the nearby historic Hauber mine, operated by Homestake Mining from 1958 to 1966. During that period, Homestake produced over 2.6 million pounds of U3O8 by underground mining methods.

Pursuant to the terms of the operating agreement, Bayswater has joined the Hauber Project as the earn-in member and Manager, and can earn a 75% interest by incurring eligible exploration expenditures of US$1 million dollars over a four-year period. The first year's expenditures will include at least two core drill holes for the purpose of testing the in situ recovery (ISR) amenability through selected mineralized zones.

Bill Boberg, President and CEO of Ur-Energy, stated, "We are pleased Bayswater has joined us at the Hauber Project, and look forward to the NI 43-101 resource report that Bayswater has commissioned from International Nuclear. As with our other strategic alliances, this relationship will allow us to advance our exploration properties on multiple fronts, while maintaining the focus on bringing our Lost Creek Project into production."

Ur-Energy successfully ventured its Bootheel and Buck Point properties in the Shirley Basin Wyoming with Crosshair Exploration & Mining Corp, which earlier this year completed its earn-in to The Bootheel Project, LLC, having incurred more than US$3 million at the Bootheel property which included extensive drilling and the successful completion of an NI 43-101 resource report.
