Uranium Resources, Inc. Files for Extension of Form 10-K Filing Deadline

Uranium Resources, Inc. announced it has requested a 15-day extension from the Securities and Exchange Commission relating to the filing of its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2006. The Company requested the extension because it does not expect to complete the preparation of management’s assessment of internal controls over financial reporting as required by Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 by the initial filing deadline of March 16, 2007. Although the Company has spent a significant amount of time and resources on Section 404 compliance, additional time is needed for the Company and its public accountants to complete their evaluation and finalize their conclusions.

The Company’s notification on Form 12b-25 will provide, among other things, that its Form 10-K will be deemed timely filed if filed not later than 15 calendar days after its original due date pursuant to U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) rule. The Company expects to be able to file its Form 10-K within this extended period.

The Company will release its earnings on Monday, March 19, 2007 and will hold a teleconference on March 19, 2007 at 10:00 a.m. EDT. The teleconference can be accessed by calling (973) 935-2048 approximately 10 minutes prior to the call or through the Company’s website at www.uraniumresources.com.


Uranium Resources Inc. explores for, develops and mines uranium. Since it’s incorporation in 1977, URI has produced over 7 million pounds of uranium by in-situ recovery (ISR) methods in the state of Texas where the Company currently has ISR mining projects. URI also has 183,000 acres of uranium mineral holdings in New Mexico that includes the proposed ISR project at Church Rock. The Company acquired these properties over the past 20 years along with an extensive information database. URI’s strategy is to capitalize on the strong global market for uranium by fully exploiting its resource base in Texas and New Mexico, acquiring new assets and through joint ventures or partnerships.
