(“Azarga Uranium” or the “Company”) will hold its annual general and special meeting (the “Meeting”) of the Company’s shareholders (the “Shareholders”) at 10:00 a.m. (Pacific Standard Time) on June 30, 2016, at the offices of Blake, Cassels & Graydon LLP, located at Suite 2600 – 595 Burrard Street, Vancouver, British Columbia.
The proxy materials for the Meeting are available on the internet as the Company has decided to use the notice and access model (“Notice and Access”) in order to reduce paper use and reduce the Company’s printing and mailing costs.

Registered Shareholders will receive a proxy form and non-registered Shareholders will receive a voting instruction form enabling them to vote at the Meeting. Shareholders are reminded to review the Information Circular and other proxy materials before voting. Shareholders may obtain additional information about Notice and Access by calling toll free at 1-888-828-1202.
The Meeting will be held for the following purposes:
- to place before the Meeting the audited financial statements of Azarga Uranium for the financial period ended December 31, 2015, and accompanying report of the auditors;
- to appoint BDO Canada LLP as the auditors of Azarga Uranium for the fiscal period ending December 31, 2016;

- to consider and, if thought appropriate, pass an ordinary resolution of Shareholders authorizing and approving the settlement of an aggregate of US$44,400 owed by the Company to three employees and one independent consultant of the Company by the issuance to such employees and consultant of the number of Class A common shares of Azarga Uranium (each, a “Share”) equal to the amount of debt to be settled, as expressed in Canadian dollars using contractually agreed exchange rates, divided by a deemed price of C$0.60 per Share, with the exception of Shares to be issued to the one independent consultant, which will be divided by the five day volume weighted average price of the Shares for the five day period immediately preceding the share issuance, subject to a floor of $0.30 per Share;
- to consider and, if thought appropriate, pass an ordinary resolution of disinterested Shareholders of the Company authorizing and approving the issuance of 812,500 Shares (collectively, the “Bonus Shares”) to certain insiders, employees and a former employee, who was an employee when the Bonus Shares were earned, of the Company as a bonus at a deemed price per Bonus Share equal to the market price of the Shares on the date of issuance of the Bonus Shares; and
- to transact such further or other business as may properly come before the Meeting and any adjournment or postponement thereof.
For detailed information with respect to each of the above matters, Shareholders may refer to the following subsections in the Information Circular: “Number of Directors”, “Election of Directors”, “Appointment of Auditors” and “Particulars of Matters to be Acted Upon”.
