ESO has Permits for Drilling on Donna (Formerly DNA) Gold Property on Monashee Mountain, 65 Kilometers East of Vernon, B.C.

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Aug. 26, 2010) - ESO Uranium Corp. (TSX VENTURE:ESO)(FRANKFURT:E2G) (the "Company" or "ESO") completed a geochemical soil survey in July 2010 on the west extension of a large geochemical soils anomaly for gold and arsenic. The large anomaly extends more than 1,600 meters along the height of land between the Kettle River and Yeoward Creek, which are two drainages with active gold placer mining in an old gold mining camp. The new sampling showed extensions of the larger gold anomaly with values of up to 733 ppb gold in soils.

The Company has planned an initial drill program to test the western part of an area of earlier trenching within the large gold anomaly and anomalous areas within the recently sampled area. Permits for this program have just been received and the work is expected to start in the first week of September, 2010.

The original location of gold mineralization was made by prospecting and geochemical surveys in the headwaters of tributaries of Yeoward Creek and the Kettle River, both early placer gold producers in the Province of British Columbia.

In the period 1971 to 1974 El Paso carried out a program of trenching over a strike distance of approximately 650 meters. This work identified gold mineralization in a stockwork of auriferous quartz-sulphide veinlets within a diorite sill and the hosting argillite, limestone and volcanic rocks. Grades ranging from trace to a high of 3.28 oz/s.ton (112.41 g/t) gold over 3 inches (7.5 cms) and 0.86 oz/s.ton (29.66 g/t) gold over 90 inches (2.5 m.) were returned in sampling of the trench walls. Grab samples from the area trenched are reported in assessment files from 0.02 oz/s.ton (0.69 g/t) gold to 0.66 oz/s.ton (22.76 g/t) gold in float from the area of the soils geochemistry anomaly. 

More recent sampling by ESO (September 2009) returned a chip sample over 3 meters horizontal along a flat lying quartz vein with 12.3 g/t gold. While these samples show significantly high gold values, the main exploration target is a bulk tonnage gold-silver deposit that could be hosted by the quartz stockwork and the dioritic dykes.
