About Tigris Uranium Corp.
Tigris Uranium Corp. has assembled an elite staff and technical team with considerable experience in the uranium sector and is committed to providing shareholders with exceptional leverage to rising uranium prices through the acquisition of established resources. Tigris will achieve this through four value-enhancing strategies: acquisition of uranium projects with established resources in stable mining jurisdictions such as the United States and Canada; conducting geological and engineering work likely to expand resources, upgrade resources to reserves and improve recoverability; advancing existing resources into and through the permitting process to accelerate the potential uranium production timeline; and selling or partnering projects, when they reach the production stage, to limit risk and share dilution.
