Uranium Energy Corp Announces Progress on Mine Permitting and Development at its 100%-Owned Goliad Uranium Project

Cultural Resources Assessment Completed, and Baseline Groundwater Studies are Proceeding Ahead of Schedule

AUSTIN, TEXAS--(CCNMatthews - Jan. 25, 2007) - Uranium Energy Corp (OTCBB:URME)(FWB:U6Z)(BERLIN:U6Z) announces its progress on various aspects of ISR mine permitting and development at its 100%-owned Goliad Uranium Project in south Texas. The Company has completed the Cultural Resource Survey and Assessment, which was an important licensing requirement. The Company has also expedited baseline groundwater studies, which are an integral part of obtaining a mine permit from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ).

The Cultural Resource Survey and Assessment has concluded that the Goliad Project will not have any impact on cultural resources in the permit area, and that no further work is required on this matter by the Company. The assessment will undergo a review by the Texas Historical Commission.

According to state regulation, all water wells within a one kilometer area around the project site are required to be located and sampled. The Company has now satisfied this requirement. Laboratory analyses from the sampling effort are being processed, and an evaluation of the water quality is being written as part of the mine permit application. The first set of permit area baseline wells is nearing completion. The baseline wells provide geologic, hydrologic and water quality data for the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) mine permit application.

Mine plan development, process facility design, and waste disposal well location evaluation are also proceeding on schedule. The Company expects work to begin on the baseline radiological, socioeconomic, ecological, and soil assessments in the next few weeks.
