Aquentium Accepting Applications for Geologist for Uranium Exploration and Mining

PALM SPRINGS, CA--(Marketwire - October 15, 2007) - Aquentium, Inc. (OTCBB: AQNM) announced today that the company is now accepting applications for a geologist position for the exploration and mining of Uranium for its recently announced joint venture with Mootah Energetic Pty. Ltd.

"We are very excited about our opportunity to enter into the exploration and mining of Uranium and look forward to building a world-class mining organization," stated Aquentium President, Mark Taggatz.

A persistent deficit between world U3O8 demand and world U3O8 mining supply has existed for close to two decades and inventories are steadily being depleted. World demand for uranium will be 185 million pounds in 2013, estimates the Nuclear Energy Institute in Washington. However, supply likely will be significantly lower, at about 130 million pounds.

International supply shortages of uranium, along with escalating nuclear programs in nations such as India and China, which both together according to the World Nuclear Association have official plans in the works for 101 new reactors.

Governments worldwide struggle for solutions to control greenhouse gas emissions and produce affordable energy. Nuclear power is the cleanest, least expensive and most secure source of electricity.

In the United States, 104 operational nuclear power plants provide approximately 20% of the country's energy. Reactors that have met the end of their normal 40-year operating license are being granted extensions. The U.S. Department of Energy is actively providing incentives encouraging power corporations to apply for licenses to build new reactors in an attempt to stave off an imminent energy shortage.

"One of the world's most concentrated energy sources, a single pound of yellowcake, or U308, is equivalent to 31 barrels of oil or 10 tons of coal. A typical pellet of uranium weighs 7 grams (0.24 ounces), and can generate as much energy as 3.5 barrels of oil, 17,000 cubic feet of natural gas or 1,780 pounds of coal. This makes it a clean and efficient source of natural energy," added Taggatz.
