Permitting Progresses at Mawson's Don Benito Project in Spain

    Vancouver (ots/PRNewswire) -

    - Attention Business Editors

    Mawson Resources Limited ("Mawson") TSXv - MAW; Frankfurt - MRY. Michael  Hudson, President & CEO, reports that the Company is pleased to announce  that the final permitting process at Don Benito uranium investigation  permits has commenced. The Mining Authorities from the Spanish province of  Badajoz ("Junta de Extremadura") have requested that Mawson make a  "Guarantee Payment" for the definitive admission of the uranium  investigation permits that cover the Don Benito uranium project. Payment of  this guarantee by Mawson on June 27th 2007 to the Mining Authorities marks  the final phase of the claim permitting process, and the Company is  confident that the granting and demarcation of the Don Benito Investigation  Permits (12684-D and 12686-D) shall be complete by year's end. The Don  Benito uranium claims cover the La Haba open pit uranium mine which ceased operation in 1990, and the adjacent in-situ uranium resources. The mine and  resource area are currently overlain by the 3,865 hectare La Haba State  Mineral Reserve. Spanish Mining Law states that on lifting of a State  Reserve, the mineral rights within the State Reserve, will fall directly to the holder of the overlying granted permits. In addition to the definitive admission of the uranium investigation permits, the La Haba Mineral Reserve is currently in the process of being lifted by the National Authorities of Spain.

    Significant un-mined historic resources remain within the La Haba State Reserve, including:

    - 6.0 million lbs at 0.06% U3O8 at a 200ppm lower cut-off, - 3.0 million lbs at 0.1% U3O8 at a 600ppm lower cut-off.

    The resources were calculated using a computational inverse distance method based on 3 metre horizontal benches and 40 metre square cells and is roughly analogous to the CIM definitions "Measured" and "Indicated". The depth of the resource extends from surface to 130 metres. The quoted resources are based on the PhD Thesis, "Petrology and Geochemistry of the Uranium Deposits of South East Badajoz" by Dr Javier Almarza Lopez of the University of Seville dated March 1996. These data are historical in nature and were compiled prior to the implementation of Canadian NI 43-101 reporting standards. Mawson has not completed sufficient exploration to verify the estimates and is not treating them as National Instrument compliant resources or reserves verified by a qualified person and the historical estimate should not be relied upon. The Company believes this historical resource and the data used to compile the estimate - which represent the most recent estimates and data available - are generally reliable and relevant. Mr Hudson states, "We are extremely pleased that the final definitive admission of the Don Benito permits has commenced. The project is unique in that significant infrastructure is already in place including power, roads and 30 kilometers of resource and reserve drilling. Considering the pace of granting, the Company is now compiling all the past data with the aim to move to a NI 43-101 compliant resource by the December 2007. Concurrently, the Company will undertake a scoping study aimed at determining the potential economic scenario of reopening the Don Benito uranium. This study is slated for the first quarter of 2008." The qualified person for the Mawson's Spanish uranium projects, Mark Saxon, Director and Vice-President of Exploration for Mawson, and a member of the Australasian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy, has reviewed and verified the contents of this release.

    About the Company: Mawson Resources holds significant uranium resources in the nuclear energy reliant countries of Spain, Sweden and Finland. As the European Union reduces its reliance on carbon-based energy sources, Mawson is well placed as the Company develops its exploration portfolio towards the sustainable production of uranium in the shortest possible time frame.

    On behalf of the Board,

    "Michael Hudson" Michael Hudson, President & CEO
