In news relating to the Company's activities in Utah, on July 5th Denison Mines announced an ore-buying program to supplement feed for their White Mesa mill in Utah. The White Mesa mill is currently the only conventional uranium mill operating in the United States, and is capable of processing 2,000-ton-per-day of ore. According to the news release:

Ron Hochstein, president and chief operating officer of Denison, commented: "This new ore-buying program is the first for the White Mesa mill since 1998. With current all-time high prices, the uranium industry has been rejuvenated in the four corner states area with several mines being reopened, including the company's. Denison's mill is the only operating one in a 500-mile radius in the heart of the historic uranium-producing district in the United States and we very much look forward to working with the independent miners in the region."

"We are very pleased with the addition of Mr. Miller to the Utah Uranium Board. His many years of experience in various aspects of the mining industry will further enable the Company to grow into a major player in the energy business," Peter Dickie, President of the Company, states. "The long anticipated announcement from Denison is terrific news for the Company as it now provides a nearby venue opening up the potential to ship ore from any of our current locations."
