"We are very pleased with the progress that has been made over this past week in our meetings with the Vietnamese government," said NWT Uranium CEO John Lynch. "The government has responded very favourably to NWT's interest in developing exploration and mining ventures in Vietnam and is very positive about our shared vision for the future of the Vietnamese mining and uranium sectors."

The Vietnam Atomic Energy Commission presented NWT Uranium executives with a detailed roadmap of Vietnam's plan for developing uranium assets and atomic energy.
