ESO and Fission Energy Sign Strategic Joint Venture Agreement in Patterson Lake Area, South Athabasca Basin, Saskatchewan

    Vancouver, Canada (ots/PRNewswire) - ESO Uranium Corporation (TSX-V: ESO), the Company, and Fission Energy Corporation (TSX-V: FIS) (Fission) are pleased to announce that the companies have signed a joint venture agreement to include claims staked in late 2007 by the companies on the southern extension of their Hook Lake and Patterson Lake claims. The joint venture is a 50%-50% participation by the companies and includes 4 claims (approximately 4770 hectares) on the southern margin of the Athabasca Basin in the Broach Lake - Patterson Lake area. The area is accessible by road and close to several established bush camps.

    A Megatem airborne magnetic and deep penetrating electromagnetic survey  of 167 line km was completed over the claims by Fugro Airborne Surveys in  December, 2007 to cover southerly extensions of electromagnetic conductors  identified by earlier work in basement rocks underlying the Athabasca  sedimentary basin to the north. The identified conductors are shown in a  Saskatchewan Geological Survey compilation to extend SSW onto the Joint  Venture property in a band of conductors referred to as the Carter  Corridor. The Carter Corridor has been under active exploration by the  Purepoint Uranium Group working on the contiguous Hook Lake project which  is under option from Cameco and Areva.

    The results of the recent Megatem survey are being processed and will form a basis for developing ground targets for further work by the Joint Venture in 2008. Target depths for uranium mineralization are expected to be shallow (less than 300 meters depth) in this area which has some overlapping cover of sediments of the Prairie sedimentary basin.

    For reference, the current spot price quoted by for uranium oxide is US$89.50 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.
