Dejour Enterprises Ltd. Stakes Claims into the Uranium
Market

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Jan. 4, 2005) - Dejour
Enterprises Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:DJE)

Robert L. Hodgkinson reports:

Dejour Enterprises Ltd. expands its focus on key energy market
opportunities through entrance into exploration for energy minerals -
uranium. This added dimension strategically compliments its existing oil
and gas exploration programs.

Dejour has aggressively researched and has now acquired, subject to
exchange approval, high potential energy mineral claims for uranium
exploration in Saskatchewan's Athabasca Basin. This region hosts the
worlds' largest and richest known uranium deposits, the source of
approximately 33% of today's global uranium consumption.

Dejour is confident that an extended global bull market for energy
currently exists, with uranium being an integral component needed to
supplement burgeoning global energy consumption requirements now taxing
conventional reserve capabilities. Less than 55% of the worlds' demand
for uranium is being met by current mine production.

To date, Dejours' acquisitions include the staking of four key blocks
totaling 168,837 acres along the southern extremity of the sandstone
unconformity. Each of these 100% owned claim blocks hosts graphitic
conductors, and in some cases uranium samples, worthy of comprehensive
exploration.

The respective Form N43-101F1 reports have been compiled and are being
submitted to the TSX venture exchange for final acquisition approval.

For complete details of the uranium properties and the Dejour strategy
into the energy markets, refer to www.dejour.com.

Going forward in 2005, Dejour will continue to actively pursue
acquisitions of highly prospective energy properties to provide superior
shareholder value, targeting both oil and gas and uranium energy markets.

We seek Safe Harbor.
