U308 Corp. Airborne Survey Identifies 43 Uranium Targets
TORONTO, ONTARIO, Feb 08, 2007 (MARKET WIRE via COMTEX News Network) --
U3O8 Corp. (TSX VENTURE: UWE) is pleased to announce the results of an airborne geophysical survey of Permit A, bordering on the Roraima Basin in Guyana. The Roraima Basin is similar in size, age and composition to the Athabasca Basin of northern Saskatchewan. U3O8 Corp. has exclusive uranium exploration rights in Permit A and Permit B areas in Guyana, totaling over 1.3 million hectares.

A total of 15,000 line km of airborne data was collected over a period of 40 days using a 2000 cubic inch NaI crystal array and cesium vapour magnetometers. Surveying was done under ideal survey conditions. It consisted of north-south lines at 200m spacing over historical uranium occurrences and 400m spacing over a broader reconnaissance area within Permit A, at an altitude of only 70 m above ground.
The combined spectrometer and magnetometer survey is intended to be a major component in the search for Beaverlodge Lake-type of uranium mineralization. This type of mineralization, consisting of uranium in vein and fracture fillings, was mined in Northern Saskatchewan in the period 1953 to 1983 and was a primary source of Canada's uranium production at that time.
A total of 43 uranium targets were discovered by this survey. According to Dr. Allan Spector, who supervised the airborne survey, the identification of these targets greatly enables U3O8 Corp.'s exploration team to define drill targets. Ground follow-up investigation of these targets is currently underway as a prelude to an intensive drill program scheduled for March 2007.
"The results of the airborne survey re-affirm our initial analysis of the degree of uranium mineralization in the Permit A area," said Allan Ibbitson, President and C.E.O. of U3O8 Corp. "The airborne survey has confirmed the location of 10 previously known uranium mineralization locations identified by Cogema in the late 70's (see Figure 1: Airborne Radiometric Survey Map with 10 Targets in 7 Historical Exploration Areas) file.ccnmatthews.com/release/map2a.pdf and discovered an additional 33 uranium targets (see Figure 2: Airborne Radiometric Survey Map with 28 Priority Targets)." file.ccnmatthews.com/release/map3a.pdf
