Anfield Energy to Acquire Uranium Mining Claims in Utah, Close Proximity to Shootaring Mill

Anfield Energy Inc. (TSX.V:AEC; OTCQB:ANLDF; FRANKFURT:0AD) announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement with Nolan Holdings to acquire a 100% interest in 175 federal unpatented uranium mining claims located in San Juan and Grand Counties in Utah.

“We are pleased to acquire these uranium claims as we believe that they are complementary to our existing portfolio holdings in Utah. They are in close proximity to Anfield Energy’s Shootaring Canyon mill, which makes them ideally suited for future exploration and production. When combined with a favorable regulatory environment and low transportation costs, these claims are an ideal addition to Anfield’s portfolio. Corey Dias, CEO, Anfield Energy
“We will continue to seek out prospective assets which fit into our two-fold strategy of acquiring both near term and longer-term uranium and vanadium assets which will fit into our overall production plan. The near-term strategy centers on our advanced Utah and Colorado uranium and vanadium projects – Velvet Wood, West Slope and Slick Rock – underpinned by our wholly-owned Shootaring Canyon mill, one of only 3 licensed conventional mills in the U.S. The longer-term production strategy includes the acquisition of complementary assets with potential to feed additional uranium and vanadium resource to our Shootaring Canyon mill. We believe that these claims will both complement our existing portfolio of assets and serve as part of our longer-term uranium production strategy.”

As consideration for the Claims and associated data, the Seller will receive US$85,000 in cash and 15,000,000 common shares (the “Consideration Shares”) of Anfield. Completion of the acquisition of the Claims, and the issuance of the Consideration Shares, remains subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange. Following issuance, the Consideration Shares will be subject to statutory restrictions on resale for a period of four-months-and-one-day. No finders’ fees or commissions are owing by the Company in connection with the acquisition of the Claims.

About San Juan County, Utah

Use of uranium ore in southeastern Utah has a long and well documented history going back centuries to its use by Native Americans as pigment. In the early 1900s there was some localized vanadium mining that resulted in the identification of large amounts of uranium and vanadium bearing ore. In the late 1940s the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission funded an expansive exploration program. This funding fueled substantial production from approximately 1948 through the mid 1960s. During that time tens of thousands of tons of ore were mined in San Juan County. The average grade over the entire period of production was approximately 0.3% uranium and 0.65% vanadium. While mining ultimately slowed due to economic factors, the abundance of uranium and vanadium in the area remains unchanged.

About Anfield

Anfield is a uranium and vanadium development and near-term production company that is committed to becoming a top-tier energy-related fuels supplier by creating value through sustainable, efficient growth in its assets. Anfield is a publicly traded corporation listed on the TSX-Venture Exchange (AEC-V), the OTCQB Marketplace (ANLDF) and the Frankfurt Stock Exchange (0AD). Anfield is focused on its conventional asset centre, as summarized below:

Arizona/Utah/Colorado – Shootaring Canyon Mill

A key asset in Anfield’s portfolio is the Shootaring Canyon Mill in Garfield County, Utah. The Shootaring Canyon Mill is strategically located within one of the historically most prolific uranium production areas in the United States, and is one of only three licensed uranium mills in the United States.

Anfield’s conventional uranium assets consist of mining claims and state leases in southeastern Utah, Colorado, and Arizona, targeting areas where past uranium mining or prospecting occurred. Anfield’s conventional uranium assets include the Velvet-Wood Project, the Frank M Uranium Project, the West Slope Project, as well as the Findlay Tank breccia pipe. A NI 43-101 PEA has been completed for the Velvet-Wood Project. The PEA is preliminary in nature, and includes inferred mineral resources that are considered too speculative geologically to have economic considerations applied to them that would enable them to be categorized as mineral reserves and, resultantly, there is no certainty that the included preliminary economic assessment would be realized. All conventional uranium assets are situated within a 200-mile radius of the Shootaring Mill.
