DIOS Reports a Uranium Anomaly on Hotish East Block

MONTREAL, CANADA--(CCNMatthews - Jan. 25, 2007) - DIOS EXPLORATION INC. (TSX VENTURE:DOS) reports a second uranium anomaly located on its HOTISH EAST property. This lake bottom uranium sediment anomaly was outlined from compilation work on a Claim Block adjacent to the STRATECO property, hosting the Matoush uranium-bearing structure, where drilling resumed in 2007. They reported that the first holes of the year represent a portion of the definition drilling being done prior to a resource calculation.

The HOTISH EAST uranium anomaly might represent the signature of a Matoush like structure and more advanced exploration work needs to be carried out in that area to evaluate the anomaly. It was never covered by previous radiometric surveys, as historical surveys in the area tended to focus primarily on the unconformity contact itself, located more the north. The winter road to the Eastmain Mine goes straight to HOTISH EAST.

DIOS reported in December that a first order Uranerz lake bottom sediment anomaly was actually located on the CENTRAL HOTISH property, near the unconformity contact. This unexplained anomaly covers some 3.5 sq. kilometres formed by a group of lake anomalies: the U - sediment forms a small well defined first order anomaly confirmed by the U-water forming a corresponding second order anomalous zone within the sediment high. Drainage system surveys are underway to help locate the bedrock source and radiometric-EM surveys are considered to complete magnetic surveys carried out by DIOS. The HOTISH property covers the western unconformity between a Proterozoic age Basin and an Archean basement, a geological context worldwide known for its uranium potential. CAMECO, the largest uranium producer, acquired a large land position directly east of DIOS CENTRAL HOTISH property, which is also contiguous to the Beaver Lake uranium occurrence property to the north-east, where 1980's historical data is available as for intercepts and non 43-101 resources.

Some options and warrants were recently exercised and a few hundred thousand dollar budget has been allocated as a start this winter for preliminary evaluation of the HOTISH property U3O8 potential.

DIOS has 19 millions shares outstanding and is in a good financial positon. M.-J. Girard, president of DIOS, worked for many years as a professional geologist in uranium exploration in the late seventies, in the Otish Sedimentary Basin, the Labrador Trough and the Mont-Laurier area.
