JOURDAN Acquires the Pivert-East Property Adjoining First Gold Exploration Inc. Pivert/Rose Rare Metals Property in the James Bay Mining District (Quebec)

MONTREAL, CANADA--(Marketwire - Jan. 27, 2010) - Jourdan Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:JRN) ("JOURDAN" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the acquisition of the Pivert-East Property (the "Property") in the Eastmain Greenstone Belt (NTS Map-Sheet 33C/01) within the James Bay Mining District of Quebec, located due south of the community of La Grande (Quebec).

The Property was purchased from an arm's length party (the "Vendor") for a cash payment of $8,000; 1.5 million common shares of JOURDAN; and minimum $500,000 in exploration expenditures over an 18 month period. The Vendor retains a 2% Net Smelter Returns (the "NSR") Royalty of which half can be purchased by JOURDAN for $1 million. Registration of the claims by the Quebec government is still pending, but should be confirmed shortly. The Company shall pay a finder's fee to arm's length third parties in connection with this proposed properties acquisition in accordance with TSX Venture Exchange Policies.

The Property consists of 37 claims for 1,924 hectares or 19.2 km2 and is located 2 km northeast of, and along strike, to the Pivert/Rose Property held by First Gold Exploration Inc. (TSX VENTURE:EFG) (refer to the First Gold Exploration Inc., news releases dated January 21 and 25, 2010) where sampling showed significant quantities of the Rare Metals Lithium, Rubidium, Tantalum, Beryllium, Niobium and Gallium. Surface grab sampling from the Pivert/Rose Property yielded 4.6% Li2O, 390 g/t Rubidium, 1.4 g/t Tantalum, 67.7 g/t Niobium, 106.5 g/t Gallium, 90 g/t Beryllium (#430917); with an additional 4.74 m (true width) drill hole intersection yielding 1.03% Li2O, 2,923 g/t Rubidium, greater than 100 g/t Tantalum, 54.24 g/t Niobium and 128 g/t Beryllium (LR-09-02).

Boisvert (1989) describes the region as containing pegmatites occurring as irregular but generally continuous lenses within the biotite schists. Individual pegmatites can attain up to 60 m in width and more than 100 m in length, collectively forming part of a much larger bodies having kilometric lengths and widths up to 300 m. Additional work by the Ministère des ressources naturelles et de la faune Québec uncovered a number of Lithium showings in the region with a similar metallogenic context to that of the Cyr Lithium Property (owned by Lithium One Inc.) and the Pivert/Rose Property, where irregular but generally continuous spodumene (a lithium bearing aluminum silicate) bearing pegmatites. Historical work on Cyr Lithium Project has demonstrated significant Lithium potential, identifying a resource potential* of 12 million tonnes (45,000 m2 by 100 m deep) grading 1.7% Li2O (www.lithium1.com).

A resource potential estimate should not be relied on and is not considered National Instrument ("NI") 43-101 compliant. A Qualified Person has not reviewed and evaluated the resource potential to outline NI 43-101 Mineral Resources. It is uncertain that any future exploration and development work will result in any of the resource potential to be considered as NI 43-101 Mineral Resources. A resource potential estimate should only be considered as an indication of mineralization.
