Strateco Resources Inc. reports that the mineral resource estimate of it’s Matoush uranium project has increased by 300% and its located 300 km north of Chibougamau in the Otish Mountains, Quebec.

Scott Wilson Roscoe Postle Associates (Scott Wilson RPA) has updated the NI 43-101 Resource estimate for the Matoush uranium project using drill hole data available as of July 25th, 2008. At a cut-off grade of 0.05% U3O8, Indicated mineral resources are estimated to total 250 thousand tonnes grading 0.68% U3O8 containing 3.73 million pounds U3O8. Inferred mineral resources are estimated to total 1.3 million tonnes grading 0.44% U3O8 containing 13.07 million pounds U3O8.

Mr. Guy Hebert, President 0f Strateco Resources says:

 “Since the beginning of exploration on our Matoush project in 2006, we said and had repeated that our goal is to develop a minimum resource of between 15 and 20 millions pounds U3O8 to justify a mining operation of 2 million pounds per year for at least 10 years. We are there now. The Matoush property is well on its way to becoming a world-class uranium field, with its very high grade, extraordinary potential and localisation in Quebec considered to be among the most favourable region in the world for mining development.”
