Aldershot Resources Ltd.: More Uranium Intersections at the George Project

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Jan. 15, 2008) - Aldershot Resources Ltd. ("Aldershot" and the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:ALZ) is pleased to provide Mr Ian Faris', Aldershot's VP Exploration and a Qualified Person, latest overview of the drilling results at the Company's George Creek Project in the NT, Australia.

The 2007 diamond drilling program involved drilling at the abandoned Adelaide River Mine (2 holes for 375m) and the George Creek Prospect (2 holes for 177m). The drilling tested the historic mineralization, provided samples for assay and provide core for petrographic and structural studies. Half core samples were assayed by ICP-MS following a 4 acid digest, at Northern Territory Environmental Laboratories (NTEL) in Darwin, NT.

The George Project is located 100 kilometres south of Darwin and 40km south of the Rum Jungle Uranium Field. As reported previously, the Adelaide River Mine was mined until 1957 and then re-evaluated by the BMR (Australian Government) in 1959-60. In 1960, Plumb reported reserves of 6,350 tonnes of ore averaging 0.32% U3O8. The George Prospect was discovered in 1954 by the BMR and investigated during the period 1954-1960, and had a total of 120 tonnes of ore grading 0.26% U3O8 extracted (Arkin and Walpole, 1960). Private companies carried out uranium exploration until the late 1970s. The above results are historical estimates and do not comply with the Australian JORC or NI #43-101 reporting requirements and they should not be interpreted as such. The results can not be validated and are not considered by the Company to be a current resource or reserve but rather to identify zones of uranium mineralisation that were the target of the drilling exploration programs.

Adelaide River Mine

ARDDH001 intersected minor uranium mineralization at centred at 93.75m with associated pyrite and chalcopyrite and shearing with sericite alteration observed at the end of the hole. Assays returned up to 70 ppm U3O8 from 192-193m. The subsequent hole, ARDDH002, intersected 0.72% (14.7 lbs/t) U3O8 over 4 metres (90.7-94.7m) including the following intervals:

- 2.86% U3O8 over 0.8m (90.7 - 91.5m)

- 0.46% U3O8 over 0.6m (91.9 - 92.7m)

- 0.42% U3O8 over 0.4m (93.5 - 93.7m)

- 0.16% U3O8 over 0.6m (94.1 - 94.7m)

with associated Co (7.5%), Cu (1.9%) and Ni (4.4%).

George Creek Prospect

GCKDDH008 was abandoned at 32m when historic workings were intersected but assays returned:

- 619 ppm U3O8 over 0.40m (25.33 - 25.73)

- 731 ppm U3O8 over 0.50m (31.58 - 32.08)

The subsequent hole GCKDDH009 intersected:

- 0.48% U3O8 over 1.0m (21.93 - 22.93) with anomalous Co, Ni, Cu, Pb, Zn values.

Uranium mineralization at the George Project is vein type mineralization associated with structures within the Burrell Creek Formation and distinctive alteration. Mapping around the George Creek Prospect during 2007 has identified two zones of anomalous radioactivity (up to 1500 cps, Saphymo SRAT SPP2 scintillometer) 400m north of the Prospect with a second zone 250m north. These areas of anomalism, alteration and shearing define a NNW trending structural target that will become the focus of exploration around the George Creek Prospect in 2008.
