ESO Granted Permits for 10 Hole Drill Program on Hook Lake Claims, South Athabasca Basin, Saskatchewan

    Vancouver, Canada (ots/PRNewswire) - ESO Uranium Corporation (TSX-V: ESO), the  Company, is pleased to announce that it has received permits for a 10 hole  diamond drill program on its 132,000 acre (52,800 hectare) Hook Lake  uranium claims. This program will be carried out using helicopter support  for the drilling operation, to allow access prior to winter freeze-up.

    The drilling will test targets on a possible extension of the north- northeasterly striking Dirksen Structure which may extend through  geophysical and geochemical targets on the Hook Claims. A second target  area has been selected for part of the drill program that is on a sub- parallel structure, lying to the west of the Dirksen. A drill hole (DER-4)  by Imperial Oil and SMDC on the Dirksen structure is located 4 km from the  south central boundary of the Hook Claims. This hole is reported to have  had grades of 1.35% nickel and 0.24% (4.8 lb/t) U3O8, over a 2.5 meter  intercept located 9.8 meters below the unconformity at the base of the  Athabasca Basin.

    Drill target selection for the Hook claims has been based on airborne  and ground geophysical surveys which included the Fugro Megatem airborne  system and high resolution ground resistivity surveys. Earlier work  indicated geochemical and mineral signatures in drill holes near and around  these targets, including boron anomalies and clay alteration which are  often associated with the alteration plumes that may exist above the high  grade uranium deposits sought by this work.

    The claims adjoin, to the South, mineral tenure of Cameco Corporation  that has been optioned to Purepoint Uranium Group Inc and to the West,  claims of Fission Energy Ltd and to the East, claims of Titan Uranium  Incorporated. All three areas are under active exploration at this time.

    For reference, the current spot price quoted by for uranium  oxide is US$90 per pound of U3O8; an assay reported as 1.0% of U3O8 is  equal to 20 pounds of uranium oxide per short ton - the conversion of  percent metal or metal oxide from percent to pounds per short ton is done  by multiplying the % value by 20.
