Exhibit 4.1




Common Shares


Western Uranium & Vanadium Corp.’s class of Common Shares is registered under Section 12(g) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.


An unlimited number of Common Shares is authorized for issuance.


Holders of Common Shares are entitled to one vote per share. Holders of Common Shares are entitled to receive ratably such dividends, if any, as may be declared the Board of Directors out of legally available funds.


Upon the liquidation, dissolution, or winding up of the Company, holders of Common Shares are entitled to share ratably in all assets of the Company that are legally available for distribution.


Our authorized capital consists of 400,000,000 shares of common stock with a par value of $0.001 per share.


Holders of our common stock have no preemptive rights to purchase additional shares of common stock or other subscription rights. The common stock carries no conversion rights and is not subject to redemption or to any sinking fund provisions. All of our issued common stock is entitled to share equally in dividends from sources legally available, when, as and if declared by our Board of Directors, and upon our liquidation or dissolution, whether voluntary or involuntary, to share equally in our assets available for distribution to security holders.


Our Board of Directors is authorized to issue additional shares of common stock not to exceed the amount authorized by our Articles of Incorporation, on such terms and conditions and for such consideration as the Board may deem appropriate without further security holder action.


Voting Rights


Each holder of our common stock is entitled to one vote per share on all matters on which such stockholders are entitled to vote. Since the common stock does not have cumulative voting rights, the holders of more than 50% of the shares voting for the election of directors can elect all the directors if they choose to do so and, in such event, the holders of the remaining shares will not be able to elect any person to the Board of Directors.


Dividend Policy


Holders of our common stock are entitled to dividends if declared by the Board of Directors out of funds legally available for the payment of dividends. Since our inception as a company on February 9, 2007, we have not declared any dividends, nor do we intend to issue any cash dividends in the future. Our foreseeable plans include retaining earnings, if any, to finance the development and expansion of our business.
