Delta Closes First Tranche Financing with the MineralFields Group and Others

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Oct. 8, 2009) - Delta Uranium Inc. (TSX:DUR) ("Delta" or the "Corporation") announces that the Corporation completed a previously announced private placement (the "Private Placement") of flow-through units ("FT Units") at a purchase price of C$0.06 per FT Unit. Each FT Unit consists of one flow-through common share and one flow-through common share purchase warrant (a "Warrant"). Each Warrant shall be exercisable into one common share of the Corporation for a period of two years from closing of the financing, at a price of C$0.15 per share in year one and at C$0.20 in year two.

At the closing on October 7, 2009, a total of 8,140,332 FT Units were issued, raising gross proceeds of $488,420. Of the amount raised, the MineralFields Group subscribed for C$470,000 through the sale of 7,833,332 FT Units. MineralFields Group now holds approximately 19.79% of all issued and outstanding common shares of the Corporation and is therefore an insider of the Corporation.

The Corporation paid to Limited Market Dealer Inc., an affiliate of MineralFields Group, a cash finder's fee equal to 5% of the FT Units subscribed for by MineralFields Group, and granted Limited Market Dealer Inc. a finder's fee option (the "Finder's Option") to acquire 783,333 finder's units ("Finder Units"). Each Finder's Option is exercisable at a price of C$0.06 into one Finder Unit for a period of two years from the date of closing. Each Finder Unit will consist of one non-flow-through common share and one non-flow-through share purchase warrant. The warrants will have the same exercise price and terms as the Warrants issued under the private placement.

All securities issued in the Private Placement are subject to a four months hold period expiring February 8, 2010.

The proceeds of this financing will be used to incur Canadian Exploration Expenses (as defined in the Income Tax Act (Canada)) at Delta's properties in Ontario, Saskatchewan and Newfoundland.

Depending on market conditions, the Corporation may proceed with a second tranche closing by selling further FT Units.
