About our Name and Symbol

In late 2005 Uranerz Energy Corporation was founded, engaging Glenn Catchpole and a team of uranium sector professionals, including Dr. Kirchner as a Director, to build an American-based uranium production company. In 2006 the shares of Uranerz Energy were listed on the NYSE American under the symbol“URZ”. Uranerz successfully explored, permitted, built, and operated its Nichols Ranch ISR uranium project in Wyoming. Uranerz Energy Corporation was acquired by Energy Fuels in 2015 in a $350 million business combination, creating one of the largest producers of uranium in the United States.

In 2017 Mr. Catchpole, along with two other former Uranerz executives, Sandra MacKay and Ben Leboe, joined a new uranium company start-up led by mining executive Todd Hilditch. This company took the name“URZ Energy”. The initial public offering was completed, and trading commenced on the TSX Venture Exchange in July, 2017 again under the symbol“URZ”.

In July, 2018 URZ Energy was acquired by Azarga Uranium in an all-share transaction, to form a new US-focused in-situ recovery uranium development company. URZ Energy's asset base and management expertise combined with the team and assets at Azarga Uranium bolstered the growth pipeline and positioned Azarga to continue to advance the development of the Dewey Burdock project in South Dakota.

On December 31, 2021 enCore Energy Corp. acquired all of the shares of Azarga Uranium. This was effectively the second time that URZ Energy was acquired, with each successive acquisition completed at a significant premium. enCore Energy is now listed on NASDAQ.

URZ3 Energy Corp. is the third time that the symbol“URZ”, has been used by this same group to work towards the successful building of a uranium company.
