Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Information 

This press release contains “forward-looking information” within the meaning of applicable Canadian  securities legislation. Generally, forward-looking information can be identified by the use of forward looking terminology such as “plans”, “expects” or “does not expect”, “is expected”, “budget”,  “scheduled”, “estimates”, “forecasts”, “intends”, “anticipates” or “does not anticipate”, or “believes”, or  variations of such words and phrases or state that certain actions, events or results “may”, “could”,  “would”, “might” or “will be taken”, “occur” or “be achieved”. These forward-looking statements or  information may relate to, among other things, the Scheme, including statements with respect to the  Scheme Meeting and the documents prepared by 92E in connection therewith, the receipt of the required  regulatory, stock exchange (including the CSE, TSX Venture Exchange and Australian Securities  Exchange) and other approvals, and the ability of ATHA and 92E to successfully close the Scheme. 

Forward-looking statements are necessarily based upon a number of assumptions that, while considered  reasonable by management at the time, are inherently subject to business, market and economic risks,  uncertainties and contingencies that may cause actual results, performance, or achievements to be  materially different from those expressed or implied by forward-looking statements. Such assumptions  include, but are not limited to, assumptions regarding the ability of ATHA to satisfy the conditions  imposed in connection with the completion of the Scheme, including finalization of meeting materials in  connection with the Scheme Meeting, receipt of required shareholder, regulatory, court and stock  exchange approvals, the ability of ATHA and 92E to satisfy, in a timely manner, the other conditions to  the closing of the Scheme, other expectations and assumptions concerning the Scheme, and that general  business and economic conditions will not change in a material adverse manner. Although each of ATHA  and 92E have attempted to identify important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially  from those contained in forward-looking information, there may be other factors that cause results not  to be as anticipated, estimated, or intended. There can be no assurance that such information will prove  to be accurate, as actual results and future events could differ materially from those anticipated in such  statements. Accordingly, readers should not place undue reliance on forward-looking information. 

Such statements represent the current views of ATHA and 92E with respect to future events and are  necessarily based upon a number of assumptions and estimates that, while considered reasonable by  ATHA and 92E, are inherently subject to significant business, economic, competitive, political, and social  risks, contingencies, and uncertainties. Risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to the  following: inability of ATHA and 92E to finalize meeting materials and/or obtain the requisite  shareholder approvals; inability of ATHA and 92E to complete the Scheme or satisfy certain conditions  precedent thereto; the inability of ATHA to satisfy all conditions to its proposed listing on the TSX Venture  Exchange; a material adverse change in the timing of any completion and the terms and conditions upon  which the Scheme is completed; inability to satisfy or waive all conditions to closing the Scheme; 92E  Shareholders not approving the Scheme; the CSE and/or the TSX Venture Exchange not providing  approval to the Scheme and all required matters related thereto; the inability of the consolidated entity 

to realize the benefits anticipated from the Scheme and the timing to realize such benefits, including the  exploration and drilling targets; unanticipated changes in market price for ATHA shares and/or 92E  shares; changes to ATHA’s and/or 92E’s current and future business and exploration plans and the  strategic alternatives available thereto; growth prospects and outlook of the business of each of ATHA  and 92E; treatment of the Scheme under applicable competition laws and the Investment Canada Act;  regulatory determinations and delays; any impacts of COVID-19 on the business of the consolidated  entity and the ability to advance ATHA projects; stock market conditions generally; demand, supply and  pricing for uranium; and general economic and political conditions in Canada, Australia and other  jurisdictions where the applicable party conducts business. Other factors which could materially affect  such forward-looking information are described in the filings of ATHA with the Canadian securities  regulators which are available, respectively, on ATHA’s profiles on SEDAR+ at www.sedarplus.ca and  filings of 92E with the Australian regulatory authorities. None of ATHA or 92E undertake to update any  forward-looking information, except in accordance with applicable securities laws.
