Bluerock and Uranerz Sell Mongolia Assets to Jindal Steel & Power for USD $2.6 Million
| ||Vancouver, B.C., June 24, 2008 (BRD: TSX Venture) - Bluerock Resources Ltd. ("Bluerock") and Uranerz Energy Corporation ("Uranerz") (or jointly "the Companies") announce that they have arranged for the sale of 100% of their Mongolian Joint Venture project to Jindal Steel & Power (Mauritius) Limited ("Jindal") for USD $2.6 million. The Mongolian JV assets were deemed to be noncore by both Bluerock and Uranerz as they focus on their respective near term production development projects in the continental USA. |
The sale includes all Mongolian uranium exploration projects and existing material assets the Companies maintain in Mongolia. Jindal has until August 26th, 2008 to conduct its due diligence review and close the agreement. Significant technical and financial review has already been completed by Jindal.
Bluerock has been acting as the operator of the Mongolian JV with Uranerz for the past three (3) years and was materially involved in the negotiation of this transaction with Jindal. Under the terms of the JV, Bluerock holds a 60% ownership and Uranerz holds the remaining 40% (See the Company News Release of April 1, 2008). Bluerock spent the 2006 and 2007 seasons advancing the Mongolian JV Project, which resulted in several significant discoveries (See News Release of January 22, 2008).
"The sale of Bluerock's Mongolian exploration arm is a timely step for Bluerock as it allows the Company to monetize the exploration results over the last two field seasons and redirect these funds towards Bluerock's main focus, our Southwest US uranium mining projects." President Michael Collins commented, "Bluerock remains focused on building production, and in the ground resources in Colorado and Utah to support the Company's on-going plan of becoming the next uranium producer in the United States."
Bluerock Resources Ltd. is a uranium mining company focused on developing tomorrow's energy today through the acquisition and development of conventional uranium resources.
