Delta Uranium reports results of spectroscopic analysis of clay minerals in boulder samples collected in the fall of 2009 on its C3 and C4 properties in the Wheeler River area of the Athabasca Basin, Saskatchewan.

On the 447-hectare C4 property, 82 samples were collected. The dominant clay mineral over the entire area is illite, suggesting that the property lies within a broad alteration system. In the north- central part of the property is a cluster of samples containing kaolinite and chlorite, which tend to occur in the inner parts of alteration systems. Dravite was also identified in a number of samples. In this anomalous area, the proportion of clay minerals in the sandstone is conspicuously higher, reaching a maximum of 15 percent.

Wayne Isaacs, Chairman and CEO of Delta Uranium states:

“with these additional positive results from our C3 and C4 properties, our Wheeler River Project is now the principal focus of our winter exploration program. We now recognize that all of our projects in the Wheeler River area are favorably located within alteration systems as seen from the dominance of alteration minerals from our analyses. We are looking forward to commencing our drilling program”
