COMMENTS OF GEORGE GLASIER, President & CEO of Western Uranium

GEORGE GLASIER, President & CEO of Western Uranium commented as follows: 'As a result of several financing avenues available to the Company, the Private Placement announced on October 16 2015 has been amended. We appreciate the support provided by our lenders in the interim period to allow the Company to proceed with the capital raise and to advance its strategic plan.

The proceeds of the Offering will be applied to the costs of completion of the Black Range Minerals Limited transaction including the payment of a portion of the Black Range payables, the development of the Ablation Technology and for working capital purposes including property maintenance fees relating to the combined companies and public company maintenance costs which will advance production of our vanadium and uranium assets in the western United States.

The completion of this raise carries the Company into 2016. In mid-January I will be returning to New York and later to Europe to embark on an educational roadshow.

The Company has been in discussions with several financial institutions that are interested in providing debt or convertible debt instead of equity. These discussions have taken longer than initially expected. It was decided that the terms of the private placement announced in October should be modified and the amount of the Offering reduced and closed. Discussions will resume in January 2016 and could extend into February 2016. Management is confident that the optimal and least expensive funding package will be completed.

We believe that momentum is building around the world for nuclear power to play a larger role in slowing climate change. The meetings in Paris recently concluded a new global agreement on global warming signed by 195 countries.
