GREENWOOD VILLAGE, COLORADO--(Marketwired - Oct 23, 2017) - AZARGA URANIUM CORP. (TSX:AZZ)(FRANKFURT:P8AA)(OTC PINK:PWURF) ("Azarga Uranium" or the "Company") has received notice that the Atomic Safety and Licensing Board (the "ASLB") has issued a memorandum and order pertaining to the United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission (the "NRC") summary disposition motion to resolve the remaining two contentions from the ASLB's 30 April 2015 partial initial decision for the Company's Dewey Burdock In-Situ Recovery Uranium Project (the "Dewey Burdock Project") NRC License.

With respect to the outstanding contention requiring additional consultation between the NRC staff and the Oglala Sioux Tribe under the National Historic Preservation Act ("NHPA"), the ASLB granted the motion for summary disposition in favor of the NRC staff and the Company. With respect to the outstanding contention pertaining to the identification and protection of historic and cultural resources for the purposes of compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act, the ASLB did not grant the motion for summary disposition; however, the ASLB did provide specific guidance and establish a schedule to address the only remaining contention. As a result, the Company expects to have the final contention resolved by the second quarter of 2018. The Company's NRC License for the Dewey Burdock Project continues to remain in good standing and the Company will fully support the NRC staff in resolving the only remaining contention.

"The ASLB decision moves the Company closer to having the final NRC License contentions resolved for the Dewey Burdock Project, while the NRC License continues to remain in good standing. The decision resolved one outstanding contention in favor of the Company and the NRC staff, completing the NHPA process, and provided a clear path towards resolving the only other remaining contention for the NRC License. The Company will continue to work with the NRC staff and other stakeholders to ensure that the only remaining contention is resolved in a timely manner," said Blake Steele, President of the Company.
