Fission Uranium Corp. (TSX VENTURE:FCU)(FCUUF)(2FU.F) ('Fission' or 'the Company') is pleased to announce results from the latest seven holes of the winter program at its PLS property in Saskatchewan's Athabasca Basin, Canada. All seven holes returned strong, wide intervals of mineralization. Of particular note is hole PLS14-132 (line 780E), which intersected 6.1m Total Composite 'Off-Scale' in 134m Total Composite Mineralization.

Drilling Highlights include:

PLS14-132 (line 780E)

134.0m total composite mineralization in a 191.5m section (71.5m - 263.0m)including:

6.1m total composite off-scale (>9999 cps) radioactivity

PLS14-131 (line 780E)

125.5m total composite mineralization in a 275.0m section (145.0m - 420.0m) including:

1.90m total composite off-scale (>9999 cps) radioactivity

PLS14-136 (line 585E)

49.5m total composite mineralization in a 198.0m section (86.5m - 284.5m) including:

2.26m total composite off-scale (>9999 cps) radioactivity

In addition to thick intervals of mineralization, six of the seven holes intersected off-scale radioactivity. Altogether, the holes have doubled the lateral width (north-south) from 10m to approximately 20m on section lines of zones R390E (line 465E), R585E (line 600E) and R945E (line 960E). In addition, the width of zone R780E has increased to approximately 70m north-south on line 780E and approximately 30m on line 810E.

Ross McElroy, President, COO, and Chief Geologist for Fission, commented,

'We are very pleased with the strength and width of mineralization from the latest batch of holes at PLS. Equally promising is the expanding width of delineated mineralization and the continued 100% hit rate of the drill program.'

Natural gamma radiation in drill core that is reported in this news release was measured in counts per second (cps) using a hand held Exploranium GR-110G total count gamma-ray scintillometer. The reader is cautioned that scintillometer readings are not directly or uniformly related to uranium grades of the rock sample measured, and should be used only as a preliminary indication of the presence of radioactive materials. The degree of radioactivity within the mineralized intervals is highly variable and associated with visible pitchblende mineralization. All intersections are down-hole, core interval measurements and true thickness is yet to be determined.

All holes are planned to be radiometrically surveyed using a Mount Sopris 2GHF-1000 Triple Gamma probe, which allows for more accurate measurements in high grade mineralized zones. The Triple Gamma probe is preferred in zones of high grade mineralization.

Split core samples from the mineralized section of core will be taken continuously through the mineralized intervals and submitted to SRC Geoanalytical Laboratories (an SCC ISO/IEC 17025: 2005 Accredited Facility) of Saskatoon for analysis, which includes U3O8 (wt %) and fire assay for gold. All samples sent for analysis will include a 63 element ICP-OES, uranium by fluorimetry and boron. Assay results will be released when received.
