Superior Reports Results From the First Fifteen Diamond Drill Holes

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Jan. 9, 2008) - Superior Canadian Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:CAD):

(Superior or "the Company") is pleased to report assay results from the first fifteen (15) diamond drill holes completed on the O'Sullivan Lake Gold Project.

The Company has resumed diamond drilling operations as of this morning, targeting the area from holes SC-07-14 to SC-07-13 (250 metres). The focus of the drilling is around the known gold intercepts to define the geometry of the mineralization.

In reviewing the previous exploration and mining data for the Consolidated Lou Anna Gold property, the plunge or rake to the mined areas can be extrapolated and this will be the focus of the continued exploration.

A map illustrating the completed and proposed drilling program and land base is posted on the Company's website at www.superiorcanadian.ca., under heading of Projects (O'Sullivan Lake Gold Project).

The drilling at the west end of the past producing gold mine workings has confirmed the stratigraphy to host high grade gold intercepts (SC-07-01, 02 & 03). The drilling east of the previous workings has confirmed the continuation of the gold mineralization with significant intercepts as far east as SC-07-12 (200 metres east of the old workings).

All samples from the first fifteen holes were delivered to Accurassay Laboratories, Thunder Bay Ontario an ISO 17025 certified laboratory for assay using standard fire assay with atomic absorption finish. Rejects and pulps of the samples are stored at the laboratory in Thunder Bay.

The Company is presently reviewing the results with the lab to determine if there is a more appropriate sampling or analytical process that can be accomplished bearing in mind the visible gold found in the core. Presently, the core is cut in half, with half going to the lab and half retained on site. At the lab a 30 gram portion of the sample is fire assayed and then an Atomic Absorption finish is utilized to determine the assay.

The diamond drilling program and preparation of this press release are under the direct supervision and responsibility of Des Cullen P. Geo and Garry J. Clark P. Geo both Qualified Persons as defined by National Instrument 43-101.
