Consolidated Uranium Closes the Acquisi4on of the High-
Grade Matoush Uranium Project in Quebec, Canada
Toronto, ON August 19, 2021 - Consolidated Uranium Inc. ("CUR", the "Company" or "Consolidated Uranium") (TSXV: CUR) (OTCQB: CURUF) is pleased to announce that it has closed the previously announced acquisiNon (the "Acquisi4on") of a 100% undivided interest in the high-grade Matoush Uranium Project ("Matoush" or the "Property") located in the Province of Quebec, Canada.
High-Gradeand Substan4al Historic Resources - Based on a press release issued by Strateco Resources Inc. ("Strateco") on December 7, 2012, Matoush was considered to have the following historical Mineral Resources:
Indicated Mineral Resources of 586,000 t at an average grade of 0.954% containing 12.329 m lbs of U3O8
Inferred Mineral Resources of 1,686,000 t at an average grade of 0.442% containing 16.44 m lbs of U3O8
This historical esNmate is considered to be a "historical esNmate" under NaNonal Instrument 43-101 - Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects ("NI43-101") and is not considered by the Company to be current. See below under the heading "Global Historical Mineral Resource Table".
Advanced Stage Project - An Updated Preliminary Economic Assessment on the Property was published in April of 2010 which contemplated access via a ramp decline, mining using longhole methods followed by cemented rock ﬁll (CRF).
Good Explora4on Poten4al - The Matoush Fault Zone, the structure that controls the mineralizaNon, has been idenNﬁed over a strike length extending 11km southward and 5km northward beyond the historic resource area. In addiNon, many of the zones of mineralizaNon within the historic Mineral Resources are open along strike and down plunge.
Proven Mining Jurisdic4on with Uranium Endowment -Quebec ranks highly as a mining jurisdicNon and has seen signiﬁcant past expenditures on uranium exploraNon by both major and junior mining companies.
Compelling Acquisi4on Structure - Deferred cash and share based consideraNon oﬀers potenNal to reduce the ulNmate total purchase price equity diluNon.
Philip Williams, CEO commented "We are very pleased to close this acquisiNon which adds another high- grade, advanced stage project, in a top ranked mining jurisdicNon, to our global project poriolio. As highlighted when we iniNally announced the acquisiNon, we look forward to bringing a fresh perspecNve to development of the project with a focus on engagement with the local indigenous stakeholders before undertaking any project level acNvity. Our recently announced acquisiNon and strategic alliance with Energy Fuels partners us with a leading US uranium miner that boasts an exemplary track record of safe uranium mining and milling that we expect will serve as a model for the potenNal advancement of the Matoush project."
Terms of the Share Purchase Agreement
In accordance with the terms of the share pursuant agreement entered into with respect to the AcquisiNon (the "Agreement"), CUR has acquired all of the shares of a special purpose vehicle (the "SPV") that holds a 100% undivided interest in the Property. The SPV, which was an indirect wholly- owned subsidiary of certain funds managed or advised by Third Eye Capital CorporaNon or its aﬃliates, acquired the Property free and clear of any encumbrances pursuant to an approval and vesNng order granted by the Quebec Superior Court dated April 30, 2021.

Pursuant to the Agreement, further deferred payment is due on or before the six-month anniversary of closing of the transacNon comprised of $1,500,000 in cash and such number of Shares with a value of $2,000,000 at a price per Share based on the 20-day VWAP of the Shares on the TSXV up to the date prior to the deferred payment. Following the issuance of the Shares pursuant to the AcquisiNon, the Company now has 46,481,387 Shares issued and outstanding.
All securiNes issued in connecNon with the AcquisiNon are subject to ﬁnal approval of the TSXV and a hold period expiring four months and one day from the date of issuance.
Historic Mineral Resources
Roscoe Postle Associates Inc. ("RPA"), an independent consulNng company, prepared a technical report on the Property in accordance with the disclosure standards of NI 43-101 enNtled "Technical Report on the Mineral Resource Update for the Matoush Project, Central Québec, Canada" dated February 12, 2012. The Mineral Resource esNmate was further updated by RPA in December 2012, as disclosed in a press release of Strateco dated December 7, 2012 (the "Historic Es4mate") and is considered to be a "historical esNmate" under NI 43-101 and is not considered by the Company to be current. See below under the heading "Technical Disclosure and Qualiﬁed Person".
The Historic EsNmate was reported to be contained within six zones: AM-15,MT-22,MT-34,MT-02,MT-06, and MT-36 as shown in the following table.
CIM deﬁniNons were followed for the Historic EsNmate.
The Historic EsNmate was esNmated at a cut-oﬀ grade of 0.1% U3O8.
The Historic EsNmate was esNmated using an average long-term uranium price of US$75 per pound.
A minimum mining width of 1.5 m was used.
The MT34A lens is within both the MT-34 and AM-15 zones.
Numbers may not add due to rounding.
Technical Disclosure and Qualiﬁed Person
The scienNﬁc and technical informaNon contained in this news release was reviewed and supervised by Peter Mullens (FAusIMM), CUR's VP Business Development, who is a "Qualiﬁed Person" (as deﬁned in NI 43-101).
The Historic EsNmate was prepared by RPA using block U3O8 grades within a wireframe model that were esNmated by ordinary kriging. The Historic EsNmate was esNmated at a cut-oﬀ grade of 0.1% U3O8 and using an average long-term uranium price of US$75 per pound. Six zones make up the Historical EsNmate at Matoush: AM-15,MT-34,MT-22,MT-02,MT-06, and MT-36. Each zone is made up of one or more lenses, most of which strike north (009°) and dip steeply (87°) to the east. Outlines of the mineralized lenses were interpreted on ten-metre spaced verNcal secNons. Minimum criteria of 0.10% U3O8 over 1.5 m true thickness was used as a guide. The Company would need to conduct an exploraNon program, including twinning of historical drill holes in order to verify the Historical EsNmate as a current Mineral Resource.
