Uranium Resources, Inc. Prices Common Stock Offering
 Uranium Resources, Inc. (NASDAQ: URRE) (URI),  announced the pricing of an underwritten public offering of 23,809,500 shares of common stock at a price of $0.42 per share. After the underwriting discount and estimated offering expenses payable by the Company, it expects to receive net proceeds of approximately $9.05 million. URI has also granted the underwriters a 30-day option to purchase up to an additional 3,333,330 shares of common stock on the same terms and conditions to cover over-allotments, if any. The offering is expected to close on June 25, 2010, subject to customary closing conditions.

The Company intends to use the net proceeds from the offering for general corporate purposes, which may include making additions to our working capital, and funding future acquisitions.

Roth Capital Partners is acting as the sole manager of the offering. The offering is being made pursuant to a shelf registration statement on Form S-3 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on May 7, 2010, which became effective on May 21, 2010. The offering is being made by a prospectus supplement, dated June 21, 2010, which is expected to be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission today.

  Uranium Resources Inc. explores for, develops and mines uranium. Since its incorporation in 1977, URI has produced over 8 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 and 101.4 million pounds of in-place mineralized uranium material in New Mexico, as well as a NRC license to produce up to 1 million pounds of uranium. The Company acquired these properties over the past 20 years along with an extensive information database of historic mining logs and analysis. None of URI's properties is currently in production.

URI's strategy is to fully exploit its resource base in New Mexico and Texas, expand its asset base both within and outside of New Mexico and Texas, partner with larger mining companies that have undeveloped uranium or with junior mining companies that do not have the mining experience of URI, as well as provide restoration expertise to those that require the capability or lack the proficiency.
