Channel Resources Adds Five New Lithium Brine Permits to Alberta Portfolio

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Jan. 25, 2010) - Channel Resources Ltd. ("Channel" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:CHU) announces that it has applied for new mineral permits in five separate blocks in central Alberta. The new permits encompass 435 square kilometers in aggregate, located approximately 300 kilometers southeast of the Company's Fox Creek lithium/potash brine project.

Data on lithium content published on January 20, 2010 by the Alberta Geological Survey on ground and formation water geochemistry has enabled Channel to identify these new target aquifers related to Upper Devonian oil and gas pools. Lithium values within these aquifers range up to 140 parts per million in each of the five claim blocks.

Channel will further assess the potential for the new permits to host commercially viable concentrations of minerals in addition to Lithium. The Company will also evaluate the availability of infrastructure and energy sources in the region that would contribute to the development of a brine processing facility, as has been encountered at the Fox Creek project.
