Pending publication of its maiden resource at the company's flagship Mtonya uranium project in southern Tanzania, the company said that the loan would provide it with non-dilutionary financing while it awaited these results.

Initially, Uranium Resources said that it intends to draw down up to $200,000.

Alex Gostevskikh, Managing Director of Uranium Resources, said: "Following 26,485m of drilling, we confirmed the lateral extents of significant sandstone-hosted roll-front uranium mineralisation at Mtonya, which appears to be amenable to in-situ recovery.

"The next step in the development for the company is the publication of our maiden JORC-resource at Mtonya which we expect within the next month," he added.

Uranium Resources' share price was down 4.71% to 2.02p at 09:05 on Tuesday.
