Energy Metals Corporation is a Canadian listed company involved in developing resources to power the 21st century. The Company has adopted a corporate strategy to focus on the acquisition and development of uranium assets in politically favorable and mining-friendly jurisdictions within the United States to take advantage of the continuing growth in the U.S. and worldwide of demand for electrical energy. This increasing consumption is occurring at a time when uranium mine supplies are dwindling and inventories are being depleted.

The Company is targeting advanced uranium prospective properties in Wyoming that are amenable to ISL. This form of uranium mining was pioneered in Wyoming. It utilizes water wells and oxygen-fortified groundwater to mine the uranium in place. Energy Metals Corporation is also actively advancing other conventional mining and ISL opportunities for uranium properties in the States of Utah, Nevada, Oregon and Arizona.
