PERTH, WESTERN AUSTRALIA --(Marketwired - May 16, 2017) - Paladin Energy Ltd ("Paladin" or "the Company") ( : PDN) (TSX: PDN) announces the release of its condensed consolidated interim financial report for the nine months ended 31 March 2017. The condensed consolidated financial report is appended to this News Release. References below to 2017 and 2016 are to the equivalent nine months ended 31 March 2017 and 2016 respectively. Results (References below to 2017 and 2016 are to the equivalent nine months ended 31 March 2017 and 2016 respectively). Safety and sustainability The Company's 12 month moving average Lost Time Injury Frequency Rate(5) (LTIFR) increased to 2.2 as compared to 1.9 at the end of the last quarter. The 12 month moving average LTIFR for the previous year was 2.2. Three Lost Time Injuries (LTI) were reported during the nine months at LHM: a process operator sustained an injury to the right ankle descending a fixed ladder, a maintenance tradesman injured a shoulder while using a drill and a process operator sustained a chemical burn to the foot when entering a flooded bund with inappropriate personal protective equipment. The Company achieved 999 Lost Time Injury (LTI) free days at the Kayelekera Mine (KM) for ~1.7 Million man hours. Langer Heinrich Mine (LHM) LHM produced 3.396Mlb U O for the nine months ended 31 March 2017, down 7% from the previous year (2016: 3.644Mlb U O ). The unit C1 cost of production for the nine months decreased by 32% from US$25.65/lb in 2016 to US$17.51/lb in 2017 primarily due to a strong operating performance and the impact of the write-down of LHM's ore stockpiles that occurred at 30 June 2016. Profit and Loss Total sales volume for 2017 was 2.856Mlb U O (2016: 3.094Mlb). Sales revenue for 2017 decreased by 43% from US$121.9M in 2016 to US$69.4M in 2017, as a result of a 38% decrease in realised sales price and an 8% decrease in sales volume. The average realised uranium sales price for 2017 was US$24.32/lb U O (2016: US$39.41/lb U O ), compared to the TradeTech weekly spot price average for the period of US$23.10/lb U O . Gross loss for the period decreased by 186% from a gross profit of US$25.7M in 2016 to a gross loss of US$22.2M in 2017 due to a 38% decrease in realised sales price, an 8% decrease in sales volume, and an impairment of inventory of US$26.7M (2016: US$Nil), which was partially offset by a 33% decrease in cost of sales. Impairments of inventory of US$26.7M were recognised in 2017 (2016: US$Nil) Impairments comprise of a US$18.4M impairment of LHM ore stockpiles, US$5.1M impairment of LHM product-in-circuit and a US$3.2M impairment of finished goods due to low uranium prices. Net loss after tax attributable to members of the Parent for 2017 of US$84.0M (2016: Net loss US$39.3M). Underlying EBITDA has deteriorated by US$11.1M for the period from an underlying EBITDA of US$16.2M for 2016 to US$5.1M for 2017, mainly due to a 38% decrease in the realised sales price. Cash flow The Group's principal source of liquidity as at 31 March 2017, was cash of US$21.8M (30 June 2016: US$59.2M). Any cash available to be invested is held with Australian banks with a minimum AA- Standard & Poor's credit rating over a range of maturities. Of this, US$19.5M is held in US dollars. Cash outflow from operating activities was US$43.7M in 2017 (2016: outflow US$35.4M), primarily due to payments to suppliers and employees of US$111.7M and net interest paid of US$14.6M, which were partially offset by receipts from customers of US$70.5M and the receipt of US$12.7M of unearned revenue from the prepayment of sales. Cash outflow from investing activities for 2017 was US$3.7M (2016: US$3.8M): Cash inflow from financing activities was US$9.6M in 2017 (2016: outflow US$122.5M), was attributable to the drawdown of US$20M under the LHM secured Revolving Credit Facility, which was partially offset by a US$10.4M distribution to CNNC by way of repayment of intercompany loans owing by LHM that have been assigned to CNNC. Cash position At 31 March 2017, the Group's cash and cash equivalents were US$21.8M, which was above the guidance range previously provided of US$10M to US$20M. The documents comprising the condensed consolidated interim financial report for the nine months ended 31 March 2017, including Management Discussion and Analysis, Financial Statements and Certifications are attached and will be filed with the Company's other documents on Sedar (sedar.com) and on the Company's website (paladinenergy.com.au). The TradeTech weekly spot price average for 2017 was US$23.10/lb, a fall of 34% compared to the weekly spot average for 2016 average of US$35.08/lb. Following price increases at the start of the calendar year, uranium spot price has traded over a range of $21.15-$26.50/lb since late January and currently stands around $21.25/lb. US reactor vendor and nuclear fuel services company Westinghouse Electric Co. filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection on 29 March 2017. The company, a subsidiary of Japan's Toshiba Corporation, is seeking to restructure its business to address financial losses and ongoing construction challenges at its US nuclear power plant projects. The US projects, four AP1000 units under construction at Vogtle in Georgia and VC Summer in North Carolina, now may face additional delays or even curtailment. In Asia there have been positive developments in the process to restart Japanese reactors. In late March, the Osaka High Court overturned an injunction that had been preventing operation of Kansai's Takahama Units 3 and 4 since it was imposed by a lower court in early 2016. The two units are anticipated to restart in May after completion of planned maintenance checks. A court in Hiroshima denied an injunction seeking to shutdown Shikoku's Ikata Unit 3. This reactor was returned to service in September 2016. In April, Tokyo Electric Power Co. announced it plans to restart reactors at its Kashiwazaki-Kariwa nuclear power plant in Kashiwazaki, Niigata Prefecture in early 2019. The Kashiwazaki-Kariwa plant is one of the world's largest nuclear power stations in terms of output capacity. The board of directors of Électricité de France resisted government pressure to announce the permanent closure of France's oldest reactor Fessenheim. In response, the government issued a decree specifying that the plant must close once the new Flamanville 3 plant comes into operation. Fessenheim's ultimate fate may now be decided by the winner of the current French presidential election. Paladin remains hopeful that a recovery in the uranium market is underway, albeit in its early stages. However, anticipated utility activity has been slow to manifest and future spot price increases and stability remain reliant on a more substantive re-engagement by utility end-users of uranium. Company strategy Paladin believes a uranium industry turnaround is imminent. However, given the current low pricing environment, its current strategies are focused on optimising actions to maximise cash flow whilst also prudently enacting capital management actions. Paladin's strategies are aimed at maximising shareholder value through the uranium price downturn whilst remaining positioned for a future normalisation of the uranium market and price. Key elements of the Company's strategy include: Company outlook LHM's adjusted Life of Mine plan (LOM) was implemented in November 2016, which involves reducing mining material movement combined with processing plant feed coming from stockpiled low and medium grade ores. The revised mine plan effectively shifts higher-grade ore processing into later years when uranium prices are expected to be higher. The FY2017 average feed grade will be reduced into the range of 550ppm to 570ppm vs our previous internal Company budget of 700ppm. The impact of the change will reduce finished U O production by up to 1.0Mlb to 1.5Mlb per year for each of the next two years. However, the requirement for less movement of mined material on site during the period reduces cash operating costs by well in excess of any lost revenue. Using Paladin's internal assumptions the initiative will generate approximately US$40M of cumulative incremental operating cash flow for FY2017 and FY2018. Key relevant guidance items for the quarter to 30 June 2017 include: Guidance for the full-year to 30 June 2017: GENERALLY ACCEPTED ACCOUNTING PRACTICE The news release includes non-GAAP performance measures: C1 cost of production, EBITDA, non-cash costs as well as other income and expenses.

Construction on-time & on-budget · 4 million man-hours achieved without an LTI · SAG Mill installation has commenced  · Gold pour expected as forecast during Q4-2017   Endeavour Mining Corporation (TSX:EDV)(OTCQX:EDVMF) is pleased to announce that excellent progress is being made at its Houndé Gold Project in Burkina Faso, having achieved a major milestone with the Sag Mill components, which are the longest lead items, already on site and installation underway. Construction is progressing on-time with over 85% of the total project complete and on-budget, with the first gold pour expected during the fourth quarter of 2017. Sébastien de Montessus, President & CEO, stated: "I would like to thank the team for their continued hard work and dedication which is allowing Houndé construction to remain on-budget and on-time for a first gold pour in the fourth quarter. Most importantly, I would like to congratulate them for posting 4 million hours without a lost time injury (LTI) - continuing to build on their track record at Agbaou, which was also built without an LTI incident. Following a two year period without drilling, we are also excited to have restarted exploration activities to focus on delineating high-grade targets, with results expected to be published in the second half of the year." Once in production, Endeavour's 90%-owned Houndé Project will become the Company's flagship low-cost mine, ranking amongst West Africa's top tier cash generating mines, with an average annual production of 190,000 ounces at an All-In Sustaining Cost ("AISC") of US$709/oz over an initial 10-year mine life based on reserves. In its first 4 years, the average annual production is expected to be 235,000 ounces at an AISC of US$610/oz.[1] The project is an open pit mine with a 3.0Mtpa gravity circuit / Carbon-In-Leach plant. The initial capital cost is estimated at $328 million, inclusive of $46 million for the owner-mining fleet. Construction began in April 2016 and is progressing on-time and on-budget with the first gold pour expected during the fourth quarter of 2017. Endeavour will employ up to 1,800 people during Houndé's construction phase and 470 once the project reaches commercial production, with an objective of employing 90% Burkinabe nationals and a focus on increasing female employment in the region. Endeavour Mining is a TSX-listed intermediate gold producer, focused on developing a portfolio of high quality mines in the prolific West-African region, where it has established a solid operational and construction track record. Endeavour is ideally positioned as the major pure West-African multi-operation gold mining company, operating 5 mines in Côte d'Ivoire (Agbaou and Ity), Burkina Faso (Karma), Mali (Tabakoto), and Ghana (Nzema). In 2017, it expects to produce between 600koz and 640koz at an AISC of US$860 to US$905/oz.
