VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Feb. 7, 2011) -Western Uranium Corporation (TSX VENTURE:WUC) ("WUC" or the "Company") announces that it has entered into a definitive agreement with Cameco Global Exploration II Ltd. ("Cameco Global") to conclude and terminate the Strategic Alliance Agreement (the "Agreement") made August 29, 2007 between the Company and Cameco Global. Under the terms of the Termination Agreement the Company and Cameco Global agreed to terminate the Agreement in consideration of a C$2.5 million payment from the Company to Cameco Global. In addition, Western Energy Development Corp. ("WEDC") and KV Project LLC, each a direct or indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, have agreed to grant Cameco Global a production royalty equal to twenty percent (20%) of the gross revenues derived from the sale of uranium products taken from certain unpatented mining claims and other property interests owned or leased by WEDC and KV Project LLC. These properties were previously covered by the terms of the Agreement.
