Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Information
This Quarterly Report and the exhibits attached hereto (the “Quarterly Report) contain “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of applicable US and Canadian securities laws. Such forward-looking statements concern Energy Fuels Inc.’s (the “Company” or “Energy Fuels’”) anticipated results and progress of the Company’s operations in future periods, planned exploration, and, if warranted, development of its properties, plans related to its business, and other matters that may occur in the future. These statements relate to analyses and other information that are based on forecasts of future results, estimates of amounts not yet determinable and assumptions of management.
Any statements that express or involve discussions with respect to predictions, expectations, beliefs, plans, projections, objectives, schedules, assumptions, future events, or performance (often, but not always, using words or phrases such as “expects” or “does not expect”, “is expected”, “anticipates” or “does not anticipate”, “plans”, “estimates” or “intends”, or stating that certain actions, events or results “may”, “could”, “would”, “might” or “will” be taken, occur or be achieved”) are not statements of historical fact and may be forward-looking statements.
Forward-looking statements are based on the opinions and estimates of management as of the date such statements are made. Energy Fuels believes that the expectations reflected in these forward-looking statements are reasonable, but no assurance can be given that these expectations will prove to be correct, and such forward-looking statements included in, or incorporated by reference into, this Quarterly Report should not be unduly relied upon. This information speaks only as of the date of this Quarterly Report.
Readers are cautioned that it would be unreasonable to rely on any such forward-looking statements and information as creating any legal rights, and that the statements and information are not guarantees and may involve known and unknown risks and uncertainties, and that actual results are likely to differ (and may differ materially) and objectives and strategies may differ or change from those expressed or implied in the forward-looking statements or information as a result of various factors. Such risks and uncertainties include risks generally encountered in the exploration, development, operation, and closure of mineral properties and processing facilities. Forward-looking statements are subject to a variety of known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors which could cause actual events or results to differ from those expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements, including, without limitation:
risks associated with mineral reserve and resource estimates, including the risk of errors in assumptions or methodologies;
risks associated with estimating mineral extraction and recovery, forecasting future price levels necessary to support mineral extraction and recovery, and the Company’s ability to increase mineral extraction and recovery in response to any increases in commodity prices or other market conditions;
uncertainties and liabilities inherent to conventional mineral extraction and recovery and/or in-situ uranium recovery operations;
geological, technical and processing problems, including unanticipated metallurgical difficulties, less than expected recoveries, ground control problems, process upsets, and equipment malfunctions;
risks associated with labor costs, labor disturbances, and unavailability of skilled labor;
risks associated with the availability and/or fluctuations in the costs of raw materials and consumables used in the Company’s production processes;
risks associated with environmental compliance and permitting, including those created by changes in environmental legislation and regulation, and delays in obtaining permits and licenses that could impact expected mineral extraction and recovery levels and costs;
actions taken by regulatory authorities with respect to mineral extraction and recovery activities;
risks associated with the Company’s dependence on third parties in the provision of transportation and other critical services;
risks associated with the ability of the Company to extend or renew land tenure, including mineral leases and surface use agreements, on favorable terms or at all;
risks associated with the ability of the Company to negotiate access rights on certain properties on favorable terms or at all;
the adequacy of the Company's insurance coverage;
uncertainty as to reclamation and decommissioning liabilities;
the ability of the Company’s bonding companies to require increases in the collateral required to secure reclamation obligations;
the potential for, and outcome of, litigation and other legal proceedings, including potential injunctions pending the outcome of such litigation and proceedings;
the ability of the Company to meet its obligations to its creditors;
risks associated with paying off indebtedness at its maturity;
risks associated with the Company’s relationships with its business and joint venture partners;
failure to obtain industry partner, government, and other third party consents and approvals, when required;

3



competition for, among other things, capital, mineral properties, and skilled personnel;
failure to complete proposed acquisitions and incorrect assessments of the value of completed acquisitions;
risks posed by fluctuations in share price levels, exchange rates and interest rates, and general economic conditions;
risks inherent in the Company’s and industry analysts’ forecasts or predictions of future uranium and vanadium price levels;
fluctuations in the market prices of uranium and vanadium, which are cyclical and subject to substantial price fluctuations;
failure to obtain suitable uranium sales terms, including spot and term sale contracts;
risks associated with asset impairment as a result of market conditions;
risks associated with lack of access to markets and the ability to access capital;
the market price of Energy Fuels’ securities;
public resistance to nuclear energy or uranium extraction and recovery;
uranium industry competition and international trade restrictions;
risks related to higher than expected costs related to our Nichols Ranch Project and Canyon Project;
risks related to securities regulations;
risks related to stock price and volume volatility;
risks related to our ability to maintain our listing on the NYSE American and Toronto Stock Exchanges;
risks related to our ability to maintain our inclusion in various stock indices;
risks related to dilution of currently outstanding shares;
risks related to our lack of dividends;
risks related to recent market events;
risks related to our issuance of additional common shares;
risks related to acquisition and integration issues;
risks related to defects in title to our mineral properties;
risks related to our outstanding debt; and
risks related to our securities.
This list is not exhaustive of the factors that may affect our forward-looking statements. Some of the important risks and uncertainties that could affect forward-looking statements are described further under the section headings: Item 1A. Risk Factors; and Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations of this Quarterly Report. Although we have attempted to identify important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those described in forward-looking statements, there may be other factors that cause results not to be as anticipated, estimated or intended. Should one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialize, or should underlying assumptions prove incorrect, actual results may vary materially from those anticipated, believed, estimated, or expected. We caution readers not to place undue reliance on any such forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date made. Except as required by law, we disclaim any obligation to subsequently revise any forward-looking statements to reflect events or circumstances after the date of such statements or to reflect the occurrence of anticipated or unanticipated events. Statements relating to “Mineral Reserves” or “Mineral Resources” are deemed to be forward-looking statements, as they involve the implied assessment, based on certain estimates and assumptions that the Mineral Reserves and Mineral Resources described may be profitably extracted in the future.
We qualify all the forward-looking statements contained in this Quarterly Report by the foregoing cautionary statements.

Cautionary Note to United States Investors Concerning Disclosure of Mineral Resources
This Quarterly Report contains certain disclosure that has been prepared in accordance with the requirements of Canadian securities laws, which differ from the requirements of United States’ securities laws. Unless otherwise indicated, all reserve and resource estimates included in this Quarterly Report, and in the documents incorporated by reference herein, have been prepared in accordance with Canadian National Instrument 43-101 - Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects (“NI 43-101”) and the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum (“CIM”) classification system. NI 43-101 is a rule developed by the Canadian Securities Administrators (the “CSA”) which establishes standards for all public disclosure an issuer makes of scientific and technical information concerning mineral projects. As a company incorporated in Canada, we estimate and report our resources and our current reserves according to the definitions set forth in NI 43-101.
Canadian standards, including NI 43-101, differ significantly from the requirements of the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”), and reserve and resource information contained herein, or incorporated by reference in this Quarterly Report, and in the documents incorporated by reference herein, may not be comparable to similar information disclosed by companies reporting under only United States standards. In particular, and without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the term “resource” does not equate to the term “reserve” under SEC Industry Guide 7. Under United States standards, mineralization may not be classified as a “reserve” unless the determination has been made that the mineralization could be economically and

4



legally produced or extracted at the time the reserve determination is made. Under SEC Industry Guide 7 standards, a “final” or “bankable” feasibility study is required to report reserves; the three-year historical average price, to the extent possible, is used in any reserve or cash flow analysis to designate reserves; and the primary environmental analysis or report must be filed with the appropriate governmental authority.
The SEC’s disclosure standards under Industry Guide 7 normally do not permit the inclusion of information concerning “measured mineral resources”, “indicated mineral resources” or “inferred mineral resources” or other descriptions of the amount of mineralization in mineral deposits that do not constitute “reserves” by United States standards in documents filed with the SEC. United States investors should also understand that “inferred mineral resources” have a great amount of uncertainty as to their existence and as to their economic and legal feasibility. It cannot be assumed that all or any part of an “inferred mineral resource” will ever be upgraded to a higher category. Under Canadian rules, estimated “inferred mineral resources” may not form the basis of feasibility or prefeasibility studies. United States investors are cautioned not to assume that all or any part of measured or indicated mineral resources will ever be converted into mineral reserves. Investors are cautioned not to assume that all or any part of an “inferred mineral resource” exists or is economically or legally mineable.
Disclosure of “contained pounds” or “contained ounces” in a resource estimate is permitted disclosure under Canadian regulations; however, the SEC normally only permits issuers to report mineralization that does not constitute “reserves” by SEC standards as in-place tonnage and grade without reference to unit measures. The requirements of NI 43-101 for identification of “reserves” are also not the same as those of the SEC, and reserves reported by the Company in compliance with NI 43-101 may not qualify as “reserves” under SEC Industry Guide 7 standards. Accordingly, information concerning mineral deposits set forth herein may not be comparable to information made public by companies that report in accordance with United States standards.

Stephen P. Antony, P.E. and CEO of Energy Fuels, is a Qualified Person as defined by NI 43-101 and has reviewed and approved the technical disclosure contained in this quarterly report including sampling, analytical, and test data underlying such disclosure.

a)
In the three months ended June 30, 2017, the Company identified a buyer for a property in the ISR segment, and a definitive agreement was signed on November 1, 2017. The sale of the property is expected to be completed in the last quarter of 2017 or the first quarter of 2018. The Company reclassified the property as mineral properties held for sale, evaluated its fair value, less costs to sell and recorded an impairment charge of $0.20 million and $3.80 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2017, respectively, in the statement of operations (September 30, 2016 - Nil).
b)

Revision of estimates is as a result of a change in estimates of the amount or timing of cash flows to settle asset retirement obligations. Changes to the asset retirement obligations are recorded in profit and loss.
The asset retirement obligations of the Company are subject to legal and regulatory requirements. Estimates of the costs of reclamation are reviewed periodically by the Company and the applicable regulatory authorities. The above provision represents the Company’s best estimate of the present value of future reclamation costs, discounted using credit adjusted risk-free interest rates ranging from 9.5% to 11.5% and an inflation rate of 2.0% (December 31, 20162.0%). The total undiscounted decommissioning liability at September 30, 2017 is $43.00 million (December 31, 2016 - $43.00 million). Reclamation costs are expected to be incurred between 2017 and 2039 in the following manner: 2017 – 2021 - $8.21 million, 2022 – 2026 - $11.22 million, 2027 – 2031 - $3.65 million, 2032 – 2036 - $11.95 million, 2037 – 2039 - $7.97 million.

(a)
On July 24, 2012, the Company completed a bought deal public offering of 22,000 floating-rate convertible unsecured subordinated debentures originally maturing June 30, 2017 (the “Debentures”) at a price of Cdn$1,000 per Debenture for gross proceeds of Cdn$21.55 million (the “Offering”). The Debentures are convertible into Common Shares at the option of the holder. Interest is paid in cash and in addition, unless an event of default has occurred and is continuing, the Company may elect, from time to time, subject to applicable regulatory approval, to satisfy its obligation to pay interest on the Debentures, on the date it is payable under the indenture: (i) in cash; (ii) by delivering sufficient common shares to the debenture trustee, for sale, to satisfy the interest obligations in accordance with the indenture in which event holders of the Debentures will be entitled to receive a cash payment equal to the proceeds of the sale of such common shares; or (iii) any combination of (i) and (ii).
On August 4, 2016, the Company, by a vote of the Debentureholders, extended the maturity date of the Debentures from June 30, 2017 to December 31, 2020, and reduced the conversion price of the Debentures from Cdn$15.00 to Cdn$4.15 per Common Share of the Company. In addition, a redemption provision was added that will enable the Company, upon giving not less than 30 days notice to Debentureholders, to redeem the Debentures, for cash, in whole or in part at any time after June 30, 2019, but prior to maturity, at a price of 101% of the aggregate principal amount redeemed, plus accrued and unpaid interest (less any tax required by law to be deducted) on such Debentures up to but excluding the redemption date. A right (in favor of each Debentureholder) was also added which gave the Debentureholders the option to require the Company to purchase, for cash, on the previous maturity date of June 30, 2017, up to 20% of the Debentures held by the Debentureholders at a price equal to 100% of the principal amount purchased plus accrued and unpaid interest (less any tax required by law to be deducted). In the three months ended June 30, 2017, Debentureholders elected to redeem Cdn$1.13 million ($0.87 million) under this right. No additional purchases are allowed under this right. In addition, certain other amendments were made to the Indenture, as required by the U.S. Trust Indenture Act of 1939, as amended, and with respect to the addition of a U.S. Trustee in compliance therewith, as well as to remove provisions of the Indenture that no longer apply, such as U.S. securities law restrictions.
The Debentures accrue interest, payable semi-annually in arrears on June 30 and December 31 of each year at a fluctuating rate of not less than 8.5% and not more than 13.5%, indexed to the simple average spot price of uranium as reported on the UxC Weekly Indicator Price. The Debentures may be redeemed in whole or part, at par plus accrued interest and unpaid interest by the Company between June 30, 2019 and December 31, 2020 subject to certain terms and conditions, provided the volume weighted average trading price of the common shares of the Company on the Toronto Stock Exchange ("TSX") during the 20 consecutive trading days ending five days preceding the date on which the notice of redemption is given is not less than 125% of the conversion price.
Upon redemption or at maturity, the Company will repay the indebtedness represented by the Debentures by paying to the debenture trustee in Canadian dollars an amount equal to the aggregate principal amount of the outstanding Debentures which are to be redeemed or which have matured, as applicable, together with accrued and unpaid interest thereon.
Subject to any required regulatory approval and provided no event of default has occurred and is continuing, the Company has the option to satisfy its obligation to repay the Cdn$1,000 principal amount of the Debentures, in whole or in part, due at redemption or maturity, upon at least 40 days’ and not more than 60 days’ prior notice, by delivering that number of common shares obtained by dividing the Cdn$1,000 principal amount of the Debentures maturing or to be redeemed as applicable, by 95% of the volume-weighted average trading price of the common shares on the TSX during the 20 consecutive trading days ending five trading days preceding the date fixed for redemption or the maturity date, as the case may be.

15



In accordance with the revised terms approved on August 4, 2016, the Company had classified 20% of the principal amount of the Debenture as a current liability at December 31, 2016. Upon expiration of the option at June 30, 2017, the Company reclassified the amount not redeemed as a long term liability. The Debentures are classified as fair value through profit or loss where the Debentures are measured at fair value based on the closing price on the TSX (a Level 1 measurement) and changes are recognized in earnings. For the three month and nine months ended September 30, 2017 the Company recorded a gain on revaluation of convertible Debentures of $0.16 million and a loss of $0.62 million respectively (September 30, 2016 – gain of $0.32 million for the three months ended and loss of $0.67 million for the nine months ended).
(b)
The Company, upon its acquisition of Uranerz in 2015, assumed a loan through the Wyoming Industrial Development Revenue Bond program (the "Loan"). The Loan has an annual interest rate of 5.75% and is repayable over seven years, maturing on October 15, 2020. The Loan originated on December 3, 2013 and required the payment of interest only for the first year, with the amortization of principal plus interest over the remaining six years. The Loan can be repaid earlier than its maturity date if the Company so chooses without penalty or premium. The Loan is secured by most of the assets of the Company’s wholly owned subsidiary, Uranerz, including mineral properties, the processing facility, and equipment as well as an assignment of all of Uranerz’ rights, title and interest in and to its product sales contracts and other agreements. Uranerz is also subject to dividend restrictions. Principal and interest are paid on a quarterly basis on the first day of January, April, July and October. At September 30, 2017 the loan had an outstanding balance of $11.68 million of which the current portion of the note was $3.37 million.

For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2017, 8.71 million (September 30, 2016 - 10.90 million) options and warrants and the potential conversion of the Debentures have been excluded from the calculation as their effect would have been anti-dilutive.

9.
SHARE-BASED PAYMENTS
The Company, under the 2015 Omnibus Equity Incentive Compensation Plan (the “Compensation Plan”), maintains a stock incentive plan for directors, executives, eligible employees and consultants. Stock incentive awards include employee stock options and restricted stock units (“RSUs”). The Company issues new shares of common stock to satisfy exercises and vesting under all of its stock incentive awards. At September 30, 2017, a total of 7,912,149 Common Shares were authorized for stock incentive plan awards.
Employee Stock Options
The Company, under the Compensation Plan may grant options to directors, executives, employees and consultants to purchase Common Shares of the Company. The exercise price of the options is set as the higher of the Company’s closing share price on the day before the grant date or the five-day volume weighted average price. Stock options granted under the Compensation Plan generally vest over a period of two years or more and are generally exercisable over a period of five years from the grant date not to exceed 10 years. The value of each option award is estimated at the grant date using the Black-Scholes Option Valuation Model. There were 0.74 million options granted in the nine months ended September 30, 2017 (nine months ended September 30, 20160.45 million options). At September 30, 2017, there were 2.03 million options outstanding with 1.66 million options exercisable, at a weighted average exercise price of $4.49 and $4.96 respectively, with a weighted average remaining contractual life of 3.85 years. The aggregate intrinsic value of the fully vested options was $nil.
The fair value of the options granted under the Compensation Plan for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 was estimated at the date of grant, using the Black-Scholes Option Valuation Model, with the following weighted-average assumptions:
Risk-free interest rate
1.93%
 
Expected life

Expected volatility
62.95%
 
Expected dividend yield
0.00%
 
Weighted-average expected life of option

*
Expected volatility is measured based on the Company’s historical share price volatility over a period equivalent to the expected life of the options.

Restricted Stock Units
The Company grants RSUs to executives and eligible employees. Awards are determined as a target percentage of base salary and generally vest over periods of 3 years. Prior to vesting, holders of restricted stock units do not have the right to vote the underlying shares. The RSUs are subject to forfeiture risk and other restrictions. Upon vesting, the employee is entitled to receive one share of the Company’s common stock for each RSU for no additional payment. During the nine months ended September 30, 2017, the Company's Board of Directors approved the issuance of 1.39 million RSUs under the Compensation Plan (September 30, 2016 - 1.21 million).

COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES
General legal matters
White Mesa Mill
In November 2012, the Company was served with a Plaintiff’s Original Petition and Jury Demand in the District Court of Harris County, Texas, claiming unspecified damages from the disease and injuries resulting from mesothelioma from exposure to asbestos, which the Plaintiff claims was contributed to by being exposed to asbestos products and dust while working at the White Mesa Mill. The Company does not consider this claim to have any merit, and therefore does not believe it will materially affect our financial position, results of operations or cash flows. In January, 2013, the Company filed a Special Appearance challenging jurisdiction and certain other procedural matters relating to this claim. No other activity involving the Company on this matter has occurred since that date.
In January, 2013, the Ute Mountain Ute tribe filed a Petition to Intervene and Request for Agency Action challenging the Corrective Action Plan approved by the State of Utah Department of Environmental Quality (“UDEQ”) relating to nitrate contamination in the shallow aquifer at the White Mesa Mill site. This challenge is currently being evaluated, and may involve the appointment of an administrative law judge to hear the matter. The Company does not consider this action to have any merit. If the petition is successful, the likely outcome would be a requirement to modify or replace the existing Corrective Action Plan. At this time, the Company does not believe any such modification or replacement would materially affect our financial position, results of operations or cash flows. However, the scope and costs of remediation under a revised or replacement Corrective Action Plan have not yet been determined and could be significant.
In April 2014, the Grand Canyon Trust filed a citizen suit in federal District Court for alleged violations of the Clean Air Act at the White Mesa Mill. In October 2014, the plaintiffs were granted leave by the Court to add further purported violations to their

19



April 2014 suit. The Complaint, as amended, alleged that radon from one of the Mill’s tailings impoundments exceeded the standard; that the mill is in violation of a requirement that only two tailings impoundments may be in operation at any one time; and that certain other violations related to the manner of measuring and reporting radon results from one of the tailings impoundments occurred in 2013. The Complaint asked the Court to impose injunctive relief, civil penalties of up to $38,000 per day per violation, costs of litigation including attorneys’ fees, and other relief. The Company believes the issues raised in the Complaint are being addressed through the proper regulatory channels and that we are currently in compliance with all applicable regulatory requirements relating to those matters. Cross motions for summary judgment were heard by the District Court on November 17, 2016. On September 15, 2017, the Court issued its order in favor of the Company on all counts and dismissing the plaintiffs motions. This decision was not appealed by the plaintiffs, and the matter is now finished.
Canyon Project
In March, 2013, the Center for Biological Diversity, the Grand Canyon Trust, the Sierra Club and the Havasupai Tribe (the “Canyon Plaintiffs”) filed a complaint in the U.S. District Court for the District of Arizona (the “District Court”) against the Forest Supervisor for the Kaibab National Forest and the USFS seeking an order (a) declaring that the USFS failed to comply with environmental, mining, public land, and historic preservation laws in relation to our Canyon Project, (b) setting aside any approvals regarding exploration and mining operations at the Canyon Project, and (c) directing operations to cease at the Canyon Project and enjoining the USFS from allowing any further exploration or mining-related activities at the Canyon Project until the USFS fully complies with all applicable laws. In April 2013, the Plaintiffs filed a Motion for Preliminary Injunction, which was denied by the District Court in September, 2013. On April 7, 2015, the District Court issued its final ruling on the merits in favor of the Defendants and the Company and against the Canyon Plaintiffs on all counts. The Canyon Plaintiffs appealed the District Court’s ruling on the merits to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, and filed motions for an injunction pending appeal with the District Court. Those motions for an injunction pending appeal were denied by the District Court on May 26, 2015. Thereafter, Plaintiffs filed urgent motions for an injunction pending appeal with the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, which were denied on June 30, 2015. The hearing on the merits at the Court of Appeals was held on December 15, 2016 and the parties are awaiting the Court's decision. If the Canyon Plaintiffs are successful on their appeal on the merits, the Company may be required to maintain the Canyon Project on standby pending resolution of the matter. Such a required prolonged stoppage of mining activities could have a significant impact on our future operations.
Surety bonds
The Company has indemnified third-party companies to provide surety bonds as collateral for the Company’s asset retirement obligation. The Company is obligated to replace this collateral in the event of a default, and is obligated to repay any reclamation or closure costs due. The Company currently has $22.36 million posted against an undiscounted asset retirement obligation of $43.00 million (December 31, 2016 - $23.18 million posted against undiscounted asset retirement obligation of $43.00 million).

Related Party Transactions

On May 17, 2017, the Board of Directors of the Company appointed Robert W. Kirkwood and Benjamin Eshleman III to the Board of Directors of the Company.

Mr. Kirkwood is a principal of the Kirkwood Companies, including Kirkwood Oil and Gas LLC, Wesco Operating, Inc., and United Nuclear LLC (“United Nuclear”). United Nuclear, owns a 19% interest in the Company’s Arkose Mining Venture while the Company owns the remaining 81%. The Company acts as manager of the Arkose Mining Venture and has management and control over operations carried out by the Arkose Mining Venture. The Arkose Mining Venture is a contractual joint venture governed by a venture agreement dated as of January 15, 2008 entered into by Uranerz Energy Corporation (a subsidiary of the Company) and United Nuclear (the “Venture Agreement”).

United Nuclear contributed $0.37 million to the expenses of the Arkose Joint Venture based on the approved budget for the nine months ended September 30, 2017.

Mr. Benjamin Eshleman III is President of Mesteña LLC, which became a shareholder of the Company through the Company’s acquisition of Mesteña Uranium, L.L.C (now Alta Mesa LLC) in June 2016 through the issuance of 4,551,284 common shares of the Company to the direction of the Sellers (of which 4,303,032 common shares of the Company are currently held by the Sellers). In connection with the Purchase Agreement, one of the Acquired Companies, Leoncito Project, L.L.C. entered into an Amended and Restated Uranium Testing Permit and Lease Option Agreement with Mesteña Unproven, Ltd., Jones Ranch Minerals Unproven, Ltd and Mesteña Proven, Ltd. (collectively the “Grantors”), which requires Leoncito Project, L.L.C., to make a payment in the amount of $0.60 million to the Grantors in June 2019 (of which up to 50% may be paid in common shares of the Company at the

20



Company’s election). At September 30, 2017, the Company has accrued $0.25 million of this liability on the balance sheet. The Grantors are managed by Mesteña LLC.

Pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, the Alta Mesa Properties held by the Acquired Companies are subject to a royalty of 3.125% of the value of the recovered U3O8 from the Alta Mesa Properties sold at a price of $65.00 per pound or less, 6.25% of the value of the recovered U3O8 from the Alta Mesa Properties sold at a price greater than $65.00 per pound and up to and including $95.00 per pound, and 7.5% of the value of the recovered U3O8 from the Alta Mesa Properties sold at a price greater than $95.00 per pound. The royalties are held by the Sellers, and Mr. Eshleman and his extended family hold all of the ownership interests in the Sellers. In addition, Mr. Eshleman and certain members of his extended family are parties to surface use agreements that entitle them to surface use payments from the Acquired Companies in certain circumstances. The Alta Mesa Properties are currently being maintained on care and maintenance to enable the Company to restart operations as market conditions warrant. Due to the price of U3O8, the Company did not pay any royalty payments or surface use payments to the Sellers or to Mr. Eshleman or his immediate family members in the nine months ended September 30, 2017 and does not anticipate paying any royalty payments or surface use payments to the Sellers or to Mr. Eshleman or his immediate family members during the remainder of 2017. Pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, surface use payments from June 2016 through December 31, 2018 have been deferred until June 30, 2019 at which time the Company will pay $1.35 million to settle this obligation. As of September 30, 2017, the Company has accrued $0.68 million of this liability on the balance sheet.

SEGMENT INFORMATION
The Company is engaged in uranium extraction, recovery and sales of uranium from mineral properties and the recycling of uranium bearing materials generated by third parties. As a part of these activities the Company also acquires, explores, evaluates and, if warranted, permits uranium properties. The Company’s primary mining activities are in the United States.
The reportable segments are those operations whose operating results are reviewed by the Chief Executive Officer to make decisions about resources to be allocated to the segment and assess its performance provided those operations pass certain quantitative thresholds. Operations whose revenues, earnings or losses or assets exceed 10% of the total consolidated revenue, earnings or losses or assets are reportable segments. Information about assets and liabilities of the segment has not been provided because the information is not used to assess performance.
In order to determine reportable operating segments, management reviewed various factors, including geographical location and managerial structure. It was determined by management that a reportable operating segment generally consists of an individual property managed by a single general manager and management team. Finance income (expense), other income (expenses) are managed on a consolidated basis and are not allocated to operating segments.
The Company has two operating segments, the conventional uranium recovery segment (the “Conventional Uranium Segment”) and the in-situ uranium recovery segment (the “ISR Uranium Segment”).
Non-mining activities and other operations are reported in Corporate and other.
The Conventional Uranium Segment
The Conventional Uranium Segment consists of a standalone conventional uranium recovery facility (the “White Mesa Mill”), conventional mining projects in the vicinity of the White Mesa Mill located in the Colorado Plateau, Henry Mountains, Arizona Strip, and the Roca Honda Project (“Roca Honda”) in New Mexico, and the Sheep Mountain Project (“Sheep Mountain”) in Wyoming. At September 30, 2017 the conventional mining projects in the vicinity of the White Mesa Mill are on standby, being upgraded and evaluated for continued mining activities and/or in process of being permitted. The White Mesa Mill also processes third party uranium-bearing mineralized materials from mining and recycling activities.
The ISR Uranium Segment
The ISR Uranium Segment consists of an operating uranium recovery facility to recover concentrated uranium from wellfields of the Nichols Ranch Project located in Wyoming and a uranium recovery facility and wellfields maintained on standby as part of the Alta Mesa Project in Texas. The Nichols Ranch Project also includes the Jane Dough property and the Hank Project. Additionally, the segment includes other mineral properties in the vicinity of the Nichols Ranch Project and the Alta Mesa Project. The Nichols Ranch Project and surrounding assets were acquired as part of the Company’s 2015 acquisition of Uranerz Energy Corporation and the Alta Mesa Project was acquired in June of 2016.

FAIR VALUE ACCOUNTING
Assets and liabilities measured at fair value on a recurring basis
The following tables set forth the fair value of the Company's assets and liabilities measured at fair value on a recurring basis (at least annually) by level within the fair value hierarchy as at September 30, 2017. As required by accounting guidance, assets and liabilities are classified in their entirety based on the lowest level of input that is significant to the fair value measurement.
As of September 30, 2017, the fair values of cash and cash equivalents, restricted cash, short-term deposits, receivables, accounts payable and accrued liabilities approximate their carrying values because of the short-term nature of these instruments.

The Company's investments are marketable equity securities which are exchange traded, and are valued using quoted market prices in active markets and as such are classified within Level 1 of the fair value hierarchy. The fair value of the investments is calculated as the quoted market price of the marketable equity security multiplied by the quantity of shares held by the Company. Investments are located within prepaid expenses and other current assets and notes receivable and other non-current assets as part of the consolidated balance sheet.  Convertible debentures are within non-current loans and borrowings as part of the consolidated balance sheet.

ITEM 2. MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS.
The following discussion and analysis should be read in conjunction with our unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements for the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2017, and the related notes thereto, which have been prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Additionally, the following discussion and analysis should be read in conjunction with Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations and the audited consolidated financial statements included in Part II of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2016 filed on March 9, 2017. This discussion and analysis contains forward-looking statements and forward-looking information that involve risks, uncertainties and assumptions. Our actual results may differ materially from those anticipated in these forward-looking statements and information as a result of many factors. See section “Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Statements” above.
While the Company has uranium extraction and recovery activities and generates revenue, it is considered to be in the Exploration Stage (as defined by SEC Industry Guide 7) as it has no Proven or Probable Reserves within the meaning of SEC Industry Guide 7. Under US GAAP, for a property that has no Proven or Probable Reserves, the Company capitalizes the cost of acquiring the property (including mineral properties and rights) and expenses all costs related to the property incurred subsequent to the acquisition of such property. Acquisition costs of a property are depreciated over its estimated useful life for a revenue generating property or expensed if the property is sold or abandoned. Acquisition costs are subject to impairment if so indicated.
All dollar amounts stated herein are in U.S. dollars, except per share amounts and currency exchange rates unless specified otherwise. References to Cdn$ refer to Canadian currency, and $ to United States currency.
Overview
We provide the raw materials for generation of clean nuclear electricity. Our primary product is a uranium concentrate (“U3O8”), or yellowcake, which when further processed will become the fuel for nuclear energy. According to the Nuclear Energy Institute, nuclear energy provides nearly 20% of the total electricity, and 60% of the clean carbon-free energy, generated in the United States. The Company generates revenues from extracting and processing materials for our own account, as well as from toll processing for others.
Our uranium concentrate is produced from multiple sources:
Conventional recovery operations at our White Mesa Mill (the "Mill") including:
Processing ore from uranium mines;
Recycling of uranium bearing materials that are not derived from conventional ore, known as alternate feed materials; and
In-situ recovery (“ISR”) operations.
In addition, the Company has a long history of conventional vanadium recovery at the Mill, when vanadium prices support those activities, and is evaluating opportunities for copper recovery from our Canyon project.
The Mill, which is located near Blanding Utah, processes ore mined from the Four Corners region of the United States as well as alternate feed materials that can originate worldwide. We have the only operating uranium/vanadium mill in the United States. The Mill is licensed to process an average of 2,000 tons of ore per day and to extract approximately 8.00 million pounds of U3O8 per year. The Mill has separate circuits to process conventional uranium and vanadium ores as well as alternate feed materials.
Currently, there are no mines operating in the vicinity of the Mill, due to uneconomic prices. The Mill is currently processing alternate feed materials under a toll processing arrangement as well as alternate feed materials for our own account. Additionally, the Mill is recovering dissolved uranium from the Mill’s tailings management system that was not recovered in previous processing campaigns. The Company is actively pursuing additional toll and alternate feed materials for processing at the Mill.
The Mill also continues to pursue additional sources of feed materials. For example, a significant opportunity has arisen for the Company to potentially participate in the clean-up of abandoned uranium mines in the Four Corners Region of the U.S. Recently, the Justice Department and EPA announced settlements in various forms in excess of $1.5 billion to fund certain clean-up activities on the Navajo Nation. Additional settlements with other parties are also pending. Our Mill is within close trucking distance and is uniquely positioned in this region to receive uranium bearing materials from these cleanups and thus recycle the contained U3O8, while at the same time removing such material from the land. There are no other facilities capable in the U.S. of providing this service. Consequently, the Company is actively pursuing these types of opportunities.
The Company’s ISR operations consist of our currently producing Nichols Ranch Project and our standby operation at Alta Mesa. At our Nichols Ranch Project, the Company placed its ninth header house into production in March 2017. In order to save cash and resources, the Company is deferring additional wellfield development until uranium prices recover. The Alta Mesa Project will remain on standby in the current uranium price environment.

27



We believe the current spot price of uranium does not support production for the majority of global uranium producers and, accordingly, we believe that prices will recover at some point in the future. In anticipation of price recoveries, we continue to maintain and advance our resource portfolio. Once prices recover, we stand ready to resume wellfield construction at our Nichols Ranch Project, develop wellfields and resume production at our Alta Mesa facility and mine, as well as mine and process resources from our Canyon Project. The Company believes we could start bringing this new production to the market within approximately six to twelve months of a positive production decision. Longer term, we expect to resume production at our conventional mines on standby and develop our large conventional mines at Roca Honda and Henry Mountains.
In addition to resources controlled by Energy Fuels, there are substantial conventional uranium/vanadium mines/projects in the vicinity of our Mill, which as stated above, is the only operating mill in the United States. We expect that as these mines are brought into production we will be able to generate profitable toll milling contracts to process this third party ore.
According to monthly price data from TradeTech LLC (TradeTech), uranium spot prices were $20.25 per pound on December 31, 2016 and $20.40 per pound on September 30, 2017. During the quarter, weekly spot prices reported by TradeTech reached a high of $20.75 per pound on August 11 and September 15, 2017, and a low of $19.85 per pound on September 22, 2017. TradeTech price data also indicate that long-term U3O8 prices, which began 2017 at $30.00 per pound, remained at $30.00 per pound on September 30, 2017. According to TradeTech’s September 30, 2017 Nuclear Market Review, year-to-date spot sales and volume appear to be about average for the same period in recent years. Spot prices have been range bound between about $20.00 and $21.00 per pound in a market that has not seen any major news recently.
While general industry sentiment remains bearish in the short term, some positive developments supported the uranium market in Q3-2017. In the U.S., following the Westinghouse bankruptcy, a U.S. Department of Energy loan guarantee was approved to support the completion of the two Vogtle units in Georgia. Certain U.S. utilities have also expressed an interest in acquiring and completing the two V.C. Summer units in South Carolina. Entergy announced that they would defer the shut down of the Palisades unit in Michigan until 2022. Furthermore, U.S. Energy Secretary Rick Perry has formally proposed that the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) take action to support grid resiliency and reliability, an action expected to support baseload energy sources such as nuclear. Japan is continuing to make progress toward more reactor restarts. That nation now has five units back in operation and 21 more units in the process of restarting (World Nuclear Association). Three more units (Ohi 3 & 4 and Genkai 3) are expected to restart as early as late-2017 (World Nuclear Association). In addition, although TEPCO, the owner of the destroyed Fukushima plant, is expected to have the most difficult path toward restart approval, they are making progress toward restarting units at the Kashiwazaki Kariwa plant as early as 2020.
While spot prices have recovered somewhat from their late-2016 lows, the market remains weak and oversupplied, sellers are aggressively competing for business, uncertainty regarding future demand continues, and additional production cuts have not yet materialized as expected. South Korea has announced a new policy of no new reactor builds and the closure of all plants after their 40 year operating life. In addition, some concerns have been raised about the viability of the Westinghouse AP1000 reactor design, which is expected to play a major role in new builds globally. The Company continues to believe that the continued weak uranium markets are primarily the result of excess uranium supplies caused by large quantities of secondary uranium supplies, excess inventories, and thus far insufficient primary production cut-backs.
Operations Update and Outlook year ending December 31, 2017
The Company expects to produce a total of 640,000 to 665,000 pounds in the year ending December 31, 2017 of which 374,000 pounds U3O8 were produced in the first nine months of the year.
We expect production at Nichols Ranch to total 260,000 to 270,000 pounds in the year ending December 31, 2017 of which we recovered 204,000 pounds during the first nine months of 2017. In September 2017, the Nichols Ranch Project surpassed the 1.00 million pound mark for uranium captured at the plant from its start of operations in April 2014.
We expect to recover 380,000 to 395,000 pounds of uranium at the Mill in the year ending December 31, 2017 of which we recovered 170,000 pounds of uranium at the Mill for our own account in the first nine months of 2017. In addition, during 2017, the Company expects to earn a fee for processing approximately 950,000 pounds of U3O8 contained in alternate feed materials at the Mill, returning all finished uranium product to the generator of the feed material. During the nine months ended September 30, 2017 the Company completed the processing of 763,000 pounds of this material.
Sales and other revenue update and outlook year ending December 31, 2017
In the nine months ended September 30, 2017, the Company completed deliveries of 420,000 pounds of U3O8 under four contracts, including 320,000 pounds under three long-term contracts and 100,000 pounds under a contract where the price was based on spot prices.

28



In the final three months of the year, the Company expects to complete one delivery of 100,000 pounds of U3O8 under a contract where the price is based on the average spot price per pound of uranium for the five weeks prior to the dates of delivery.
During the year ending December 31, 2017, the Company expects to earn approximately $6.3 million in toll revenue for processing certain alternate feed materials for a third party of which $5.1 million was earned in the first nine months of 2017.
Operations Update and Outlook for the year ending December 31, 2018
The Company is continuing to adjust its operations in response to current uranium prices and market conditions.
The Company does not plan to develop any wellfields at Nichols Ranch until the price of uranium improves. As a result, production at Nichols Ranch will continue to decline as current wellfields are depleted. With no new wellfields, we expect Nichols Ranch will produce approximately 140,000 to 160,000 pounds of uranium in 2018. Alta Mesa will remain on standby until prices improve.
The Mill has historically operated on a campaign basis, whereby uranium recovery is scheduled as mill feed, cash needs, contract requirements, and/or market conditions may warrant. Although, primary mine production is expected to fall while uranium prices remain low, the Company is actively pursuing other revenue generating opportunities, including processing new and additional alternate feed sources, processing low grade ore from third parties in connection with various uranium clean-up requirements, and further recovery of Pond Return. Successful results from these activities will allow the Mill to extend the current processing campaign into 2018 and beyond.
In the event we are unable to secure sufficient ore or other feed sources for the Mill into the future, the Company would expect to place uranium recovery activities at the Mill on a reduced status until sufficient mill feed becomes available. Even on a reduced status, the Mill would continue to dry and package material from the Nichols Ranch Plant and continue to receive and stockpile alternate feed materials for future milling campaigns.
We plan to complete minor underground work including certain permeability testing at the Canyon Mine by the end of the first quarter of 2018.  The timing of the Company’s plans to extract and process mineralized materials from the Canyon project will be based on the results of mine planning, market conditions and available financing.
Our existing inventory of U3O8 along with the expected production at Nichols Ranch is expected to provide more U3O8 than is required for our current sales contracts. Such excess inventory will be sold in the spot market as uranium prices increase and/or cash requirements arise. In the year ending December 31, 2018, we expect to deliver 200,000 pounds of U3O8 under a long term contract and 200,000 pounds of U3O8 under a contract where the price will be based on then-prevailing spot prices.
Land holding, maintenance, support and administrative expenses will be reviewed in detail to determine cost cutting opportunities.
