FIRST URANIUM ANNOUNCES TSX REVIEW EXTENSION07 July 2010
Toronto and Johannesburg – First Uranium Corporation (TSX:FIU, JSE:FUM) (“First Uranium” or the “Company”) (ISIN:CA33744R1029) today received a 30 day extension of their listing review.
On March the 12th 2010, First Uranium announced the terms of the now completed recapitalization financing. The financing relied upon exemptions from the security holder approval requirements of the Toronto Stock Exchange (the “TSX”) available in cases of financial hardship. As is the ordinary course in the circumstances, the TSX scheduled a listing review for early July.
As reported on the 18th of June, the new management team at the Ezulwini Mine is focused on completing a detailed “bottom-up” review of the mine plan to ensure that the projected financial results are confirmed.
As a result, First Uranium requested and was granted a 30 day extension which will allow sufficient time for the review of the mine plan and projected financial results to be completed and incorporated into the submission.
