The Paragon Report Provides Equity Research on Denison Mines & USEC

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Dec 16, 2011) - The uranium sector has faced considerable price uncertainty in the second half of 2011 as the aftermath of Japan's tragic nuclear crisis continues to drive the industry's outlook. As Resources Capital Research (RCR) said in its December quarter note uranium majors have significantly underperformed the broader share market over the past 12 months, largely due to set backs following Fukushima.The Paragon Report examines investing opportunities in the Uranium Industry and provides equity research on Denison Mines Corporation (NYSE Amex: DNN) (TSX: DML) and USEC Inc. (NYSE: USU). Access to the full company reports can be found at:

As industry leader Cameco Corporation explains in its "Uranium 101" article, "demand for uranium is directly linked to the level of electricity generated by nuclear power plants. Reactor capacity is growing slowly, and at the same time the reactors are being run more productively, with higher capacity factors, and reactor power levels."

While a few countries -- Germany most notably -- abandoned nuclear programs in the aftermath of the crisis at Fukushima, the United States as well as emerging economies such as China continue to embrace nuclear energy. Earlier this week the Associated Press reported that Federal regulators are leaning towards approving a nuclear reactor designed by Westinghouse Electric Co. that could power the first nuclear plants built from scratch in a generation.

Denison Mines Corp. engages in the exploration, development, mining, and milling of uranium primarily in the United States and Canada. It also produces vanadium as a co-product from its mines located in Colorado and Utah. Last month the company announced the successful completion of Phase 2 of the two-phased 2011 drilling program on its 100% owned Mutanga uranium project in Zambia. Based on internal estimates, Denison believes that the results from the 2011 drill program could potentially lead to an increase in Denison's mineral resource estimates on the Mutanga project by 16 to 24 million pounds U3O8.

USEC Inc., together with its subsidiaries, supplies low enriched uranium (LEU) to commercial nuclear power plants in the United States and internationally. The company reported a net loss of $6.9 million or 6 cents per share for the quarter ended September 30, 2011, compared to net income of $1.0 million or 1 cent per share for the third quarter of 2010.
