| ||Mesa Uranium Corp. (TSX.V: MZU) ("Mesa") is pleased to announce plans for the 2007 drilling program at its projects in Utah and Arizona. Drill programs have been designed for the following target areas and drilling permits have been obtained for several of the targets. Drilling planned for 2007 includes:|
Lisbon Valley Project (100% owned, Utah)
- The SE Lisbon Mine target was drilled during 2006, and Mesa's drilling discovered significant uranium mineralization. The 2007 drilling will offset mineralized holes L-4 and L-7 (see Mesa news release dated September 14, 2006). Mesa's drill results in this large prospective area validate Mesa's exploration model, which predicts potential for large uranium deposits.
- Mesa drilled the North Alice target in 2006, and drill hole NA-3 intercepted strong uranium mineralization (see Mesa news release dated December 13 2006). The 2007 drilling will offset these successful results.
- The Lisbon Springs target contains data from oil wells and 1970's drilling which indicate a strong mineralized trend consistent with Mesa's conceptual model.
- Drilling is planned at the Section 2 State lease along a favorable Cutler Formation channel which trends northwest - southeast.
- The planned drilling in the Utah State lease, Section 32 will test for shallow uranium mineralization in the Cutler Formation along the prolific trend defined by the historic Uranerz, Velvet, and Bardon uranium mines.
- Drilling within the La Sal Uranium Mining District on the La Sal Channel will test the Salt Wash member of the Morrison Formation.
- Drilling is planned on the west side of the Lisbon Valley Mining District, where a number of favorable uranium trends exist.

Moonshine Springs (100% owned, Arizona)
Mesa is currently planning drill programs at the recently acquired Moonshine Springs project, which has been expanded and now covers 4.8 square miles. Confirmation and offset drilling are designed to extend the strong mineralization found by Exxon and others in the 1970's (see Mesa news releases dated February 19 and April 18, 2007). Mesa has acquired a series of reports and maps relating to work performed by Exxon. Mesa geologists are using this information to design the drilling program. Mesa's drilling will offset the exciting historic drill results at Moonshine Springs, where one historic intercept contains six feet (1.8 meters) grading 0.4% U3O8 (8 pounds per ton) in a zone that remains open to the north and south, as previously reported.
