Ressources Appalaches: Four Uranium Zones Over 4.7 Kilometres at Ashini

RIMOUSKI, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Sept. 26, 2007) - Stripping operations at the Ashini property in Quebec, 100% owned by Ressources Appalaches (TSX VENTURE:APP), have so far identified four zones of uranium mineralization over a north-south distance of 4.7 kilometres. These zones consist of a number of veins of uranium-bearing pegmatite.

The main zone has been excavated over an area of 500 m by 350 m (see press release of July 10, 2007). It consists of a dense network of pegmatite veins. Five of the samples taken yielded grades ranging from 0.05% to 0.082% U, and 25 samples covering the whole zone gave grades of from 0.01% to 0.048% U.

The discovery of three other pegmatite veins carrying uranium on the south side of the property extends the mineralization to a total distance of 4.7 kilometres. The grades of selected samples range from 0.011% to 0.023% U.

Farther north, the best selected samples from two other zones excavated in 2006 contained 0.13% and 0.22% U respectively.

These four zones are parallel to a major geologic structure more than 50 kilometres in length, marked by a strong magnetic signature. All of these zones are open both laterally and in depth.

According to the President, Andre Proulx, "The potential for the discovery of a vast uranium zone at surface is becoming increasingly apparent in this district. Appalaches' objective is therefore to expand the zones already known, and to continue surface exploration throughout the property, to indicate the scope of this deposit."

The samples were analyzed for multiple elements at the ALS Chemex laboratory in Val d'Or, using the atomic absorption and ICP techniques. The contents of this press release were prepared by Geologist Alain Hupe, a Qualified Person as defined in NI 43 101.
