With respect to subscriptions for 2,433,332 of the Units issued pursuant to the Offering, the Corporation paid a cash finder's fee of $21,900 and issued 194,666 finder's options ("Finder's Options"). Each Finder's Option is exercisable into a finder's unit ("Finder's Unit") consisting of one Common Share and one Warrant. Each Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one additional Common Share on the same terms and conditions as the Warrants issued under the Offering.

The Common Shares and Warrants issued pursuant to the Offering are subject to a four month hold period under applicable securities laws, which hold period expires on January 28, 2012.

Proceeds of the Offering will be used by the Corporation to finance potential uranium opportunities.

Uravan is a Calgary Alberta based diversified mineral exploration company that utilizes applied research to develop new innovative exploration technologies to identify buried uranium, rare earth elements (REE) and nickel-copper-platinum group element (Ni-Cu- PGE) deposits in under-explored areas. Our exploration focus in uranium is for potential high-grade unconformity-related uranium deposits in the Athabasca and Thelon Basins in Canada and other basin environments globally. Uravan is expanding its acquisition efforts toward REE geological domains in North America and other specific areas globally. The REE and uranium mineralization occur in related geological environments thereby complementing Uravan's uranium exploration efforts with a strategy to add diversification to its portfolio. Further, Uravan is pursuing the exploration of its advanced stage Rottenstone Ni-Cu-PGE project supported by the development of new drill targets defined by recent geophysical re-interpretation. Uravan is a publicly listed company on the TSX Venture Exchange under the trading symbol "UVN". All of the mineral properties Uravan owns are considered in the exploration stage of development.
