Western Uranium Proposes Name Change to Concordia Resource Corp.Vancouver, BC - Western Uranium Corporation (TSX-V:WUC) ("the Company" or "WUC") is pleased to announce that the Board of Directors of the Company has approved, subject to regulatory approval, a change of name of the company to Concordia Resource Corp.
The proposed change of name reflects the Company's strategy for expansion through acquisition and exploration globally, and through a shift in focus from uranium into a more diversified exploration and development company.
As part of this ongoing strategy the company last week completed and announced the sale to Western Lithium USA Corporation the royalties and titles constituting substantially all of the Kings Valley uranium property holdings in Nevada for Cdn$6.85 million, paid through the issue to WUC of 5,855,000 WLC common shares. The Company retains the Albisu gold project which was delineated by a regional drill program in 2009.
Furthermore, as part of its growth strategy, the Company last week announced that Meryllion Minerals, its wholly owned subsidiary , had acquired an option to purchase the Providencia silver-copper prospect located in Jujuy Province, Argentina. Meryllion has also acquired an option to purchase the 14,000-hectare Cerro Amarillo-Cajon Grande copper-gold property located in the Malargüe District, in Argentina.
Meryllion Minerals is a 100% owned subsidiary of Western Uranium with the charter to conduct mineral exploration in South America with a primary focus on precious and base metals. Meryllion also has an option to purchase a 100% interest in the Cerro Amarillo copper-gold porphyry deposit located in Mendoza Province, Argentina. Meryllion operates out of offices in Buenos Aires under the direction of Dr. Willem Fuchter, a PhD geologist with extensive international experience.
