Kirrin Resources Announces Drill Start-Up at Boxey Point Uranium Project

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Oct. 23, 2009) - Kirrin Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:KYM) today announced that field activities for the 2009 exploration program at the Boxey Point uranium project will commence on or about November 1, 2009. All supplies and equipment are expected in-place within 48 hours thereafter and drilling is scheduled to commence on November 3, 2009. The Boxey Point project is located on the south coast of Newfoundland.

The Boxey Point program follows-up the results of fieldwork completed during 2008. Drilling totalling some 1,500 m, with each hole ranging from about 125 m to a maximum depth of 250 m, will be completed during the forthcoming program. These holes are being drilled to test a radioactive uranium-bearing zone that is exposed on a cliff-face along the west coast of the Boxey Point promontory, anomalous uranium in soil sample results that extend at least some 1.5 km easterly from this cliff face and, finally, selected fault zones and sedimentary strata that may control in whole or in part the uranium-bearing zone(s).

Kirrin is fortunate in having retained the same exploration team for 2009 that gained familiarity with the Boxey Point project during the 2008 program.

Reg A. Olson, Ph.D., P. Geol. is the designated Qualified Person for Kirrin on the Boxey Point project.
