Ditem Explorations/Beartooth Property: 2008 Winter Program Results

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Aug. 12, 2008) - Ditem Explorations (TSX VENTURE:DIT)(FRANKFURT:D8X) is pleased to announce the results for the 2008 winter field program activities on the Beartooth Island Prospect. The program consisted of ground geophysical surveying and diamond drilling and is presented here as reported by the operator, Golden Valley Mines.

The Spartan MT survey consisted of 18 lines for a total 118.2 line kilometres over one additional priority target area (coverage over northeast section of property) and detailed in-fill surveying over selected areas of the reminder of the property based on the definition of a series of anomalies, possibly produced by basement conductors, and associated resistivity lows outlined from the initial 2007 survey slated for drill testing. The final interpretative report from the contractor is expected by the middle of the third quarter.

The drilling program totalled 2511.55 metres testing three separate conductors defined by the winter 2007 Spartan MT survey. The operator reported that due to extreme ice movement, one of the drill holes did not penetrate its intended target depth despite two attempts. The unconformity was intersected by two of the drill holes. Variable developed hydrothermal alteration (hematite, chlorite, limonite and clay) normally associated with uranium deposits in the area were intersected to the unconformity and into the basement rocks. Both of these holes also showed a slight increase in radioactivity above background and elevated boron values.

Follow-up down-hole time domain electromagnetic surveying (BHTEM) identified two off-hole conductors in 2 of the three holes completed. These first drill intersections on the Beartooth Island Prospect are highly encouraging in light of the evidence of hydrothermal alteration, elevated boron values and off-hole electromagnetic conductors indicating a possible nearby mineralized structure. Both targets are coinciding with the ground magnetotelluric geophysical anomalies.

A total of 159 samples were submitted for analysis in addition to their duplicates for alteration studies to detail the geochemical halo effect as related to uranium mineralization.

Ditem geologist Alan Davies was present on site for the duration of the drill program.

Ditem Explorations (52,203,384 fully diluted) is a uranium exploration and development Company with properties in the Athabasca Basin in Saskatchewan (Beartooth Island Project and Cree Lake Property for a total of 1,067 km2) and the Otish Basin (Otish Uranium 258 km2 and Otish South 381 km2) in Quebec. The Company has completed a 6 hole drilling program on the Otish Uranium Property and is presently undertaking the second phase of the drill program. In Saskatchewan, the 3 hole drill program on the Beartooth Project was completed in March of this year. When ice conditions permit, Ditem plans to undertake drilling on its Cree Lake Property. The Company has also signed a Letter of Intent with Sinosteel (see April 14th press release). At Sinosteel's request, Ditem has granted Sinosteel a delay of 60 additional days from early July for negotiations in Montreal regarding the signing of a joint venture agreement.

Other exploration programs are also being developed and new Canadian acquisitions are on-going. Existing properties and general information may be viewed on the Company's website at www.ditem.com.
