CORPUS CHRISTI, TX - Uranium Energy (NYSE:UEC) Corp (NYSE American: UEC), a uranium mining and exploration company, today announced the appointment of Brent Berg as its new Senior Vice-President of U.S. Operations.

Berg, a seasoned professional in the mining and mineral processing industry, brings over 27 years of experience to UEC, with a significant background in uranium production in the United States and Canada.

Berg's career includes over two decades at Cameco (NYSE:CCJ) Resources, where he served as President and was responsible for the company's U.S. uranium In-Situ Recovery (ISR) operations. His tenure at Cameco saw U.S. production peak at over 2.6 million pounds of uranium before production was curtailed due to market conditions. Berg also has a history of working in various mining capacities, including open pit and underground operations.

Prior to joining UEC, Berg held the position of President and CEO of Rare Element Resources Ltd., where he managed the company's day-to-day operations and strategic direction. He is a Professional Engineer with a B.A.Sc. in Regional Environmental Systems Engineering and an MBA from the University of Regina. In 2023, Berg also completed a Master of Legal Studies, with a focus on mining law and policy, from the University of Arizona.

Amir Adnani, CEO and President of Uranium Energy Corp, expressed confidence in Berg's expertise, particularly his ISR production experience and his familiarity with Wyoming's mining landscape. Berg is set to collaborate with Donna Wichers, Vice President of Wyoming Operations, on the restart of uranium production at UEC's Christensen Ranch/Irigaray ISR operations in Wyoming and will contribute to the company's ISR production growth initiatives in Texas.

Uranium Energy Corp is positioned as a significant player in the supply of uranium, advancing environmentally friendly ISR uranium projects in the United States and conventional projects in Canada.
