Strathmore Updates Proposed Pine Tree-Reno Creek Sale to Bayswater Uranium Corporation

KELOWNA, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Oct. 6, 2009) - STRATHMORE MINERALS CORP. ("Strathmore" or "the Company") (TSX VENTURE:STM) is pleased to update shareholders regarding the proposed sale of its Pine Tree-Reno Creek Wyoming Uranium Properties to Bayswater Uranium Corporation. On August 24, the Company announced that its wholly owned subsidiary Strathmore Resources (US) Ltd. completed a binding Letter of Intent (LOI Agreement) with NCA Nuclear Inc. (NCA), a wholly owned subsidiary of Bayswater Uranium Corporation for the sale of its properties known as "Pine-Tree Reno Creek" for US $30,000,000 in cash. As per the terms of the agreement, Bayswater has 60 days from the date of this LOI Agreement to complete a purchase agreement and 120 days from the date of the LOI Agreement to close this transaction.

On October 5th, Bayswater announced that it had received a positive NI 43-101 compliant Pre-Feasibility Study (PFS) prepared by TREC Inc. on the technical and economic feasibility of the Pine-Tree-Reno Creek Uranium Project. The report is dated September 28, 2009, and was authored by Douglas H. Graves, P.E., a Qualified Person as defined by NI 43-101 Policy. In addition, Bayswater notified Strathmore that it intends to file the PFS with the TSX and SEDAR.

The PFS is based on the Project's NI 43-101 measured and indicated resources of 10.9 million pounds with an in situ recovery mine (ISR) and central processing plant facility (CPP) designed to produce up to 2 million pounds per year of U3O8. Further details can be found in Bayswater's October 5th press release.

The highly positive independent PFS study represents the most significant part of Bayswater's due diligence required to support its fund raising efforts necessary to ultimately close this proposed transaction.

Strathmore will provide further updates as additional information becomes available.
