enCore Energy Sells Off 30% Of Alta Mesa To Fund Uranium Asset Development

enCore Energy (TSXV: EU) has sold off a portion of its Alta Mesa project in Texas in an effort to fund the development of certain Wyoming and Texas projects.

The company has sold a 30% stake in Alta Mesa to that of Boss Energy, an Australia-based ISR uranium producer. The sale has resulted in the formation of a joint venture for the facility, with enCore to act as the project manager. Uranium produced at the facility will be distributed on a pro rata basis.

Alta Mesa, which consists of a fully licensed and constructed ISR operation, is expected to begin production in Q2. Operating capacity amounts to 1.5 million pounds of U3O8 production per year.

The 30% stake was sold in exchange for US$60 million, with Boss Energy also committing to invest US$10 million into enCore as part of the transaction. And to seal the deal, Boss was required to agree to loan enCore up to 200,000 pounds of uranium at 9% interest, which is repayable in twelve months time.

enCore Energy last traded at $5.26 on the TSX Venture.
