About Aura Energy (ASX:AEE, AIM:AURA)


Aura Energy is an Australian-based minerals company with two major projects, the Tiris

Uranium Project in Mauritania, and the Häggån Polymetallic Project in Sweden.


The Company is primarily focused on proceeding to first uranium production from the

Tiris Uranium Project (Aura owns 85%), a major greenfields uranium discovery. A recent

Enhanced Feasibility Study increased the project NPV significantly and reconfirmed Tiris as

one of the lowest capex, lowest operating cost uranium projects that remains

undeveloped in the world. The Company holds Offtake Financing Agreements with Curzon

and is in the process of negotiating additional offtake arrangements.


Aura also holds 100% of the Häggån Polymetallic Project, one of the world's largest

undeveloped vanadium resources with significant by-products credits possible in nickel,

zinc, molybdenum, uranium and sulphate of potash.


In 2023, Aura will continue the transition from a uranium explorer to a uranium producer,

to capitalise on the rapidly growing demand for nuclear power as the world continues to

shift towards a decarbonised energy sector.
