Azarga Uranium’s President and CFO, Blake Steele commented, “we are very pleased that Mr. Jamison has agreed to join the Company as a strategic advisor. His previous achievements speak for themselves and his expertise will be invaluable to the future development of the Company’s pipeline of US based projects, including the Company’s initial development priority, Dewey Burdock, located in South Dakota.

The draft EPA permits pertain to the Company’s planned Class III and Class V Underground Injection Control (“UIC”) activities and address all outstanding permit applications filed with the EPA for the Project.
According to a recent announcement by the EPA, the public review and comment period for the draft permits has been extended until 19 June 2017. The EPA’s final permit decision will evaluate all public comments pertaining to the draft permits.
