Tenajon Drilling On Ajax Continues to Intersect Near Surface High-Grade Molybdenum (Mo) Mineralization

Results include 0.118% Molybdenum over 51.31 Metres

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Jan. 10, 2008) - Tenajon Resources Corp. (TSX VENTURE:TJS) (the "Company") today announced assay results for Holes 2007-10 and 11 drilled at its Ajax Property. Hole 2007-10 intersected significant high-grade molybdenum mineralization located in the southwest corner of the near surface mineralized zone. Commencing at 5.59 metres below surface, the hole averaged 0.075% molybdenum over 121.51 metres including a 41.66 metre high grade intercept averaging 0.126% molybdenum. Ajax, one of North America's largest undeveloped molybdenum deposits, is located 14 km north of Alice Arm in northwestern British Columbia. Infrastructure in the area is very good with both tidewater access and hydro electric power situated at Kitsault 16km to the south.

"We are very pleased with these additional drill results. Hole 2007-10 was drilled within the boundaries of a potential open pit and we continue to intersect near surface high-grade molybdenum mineralization," said Bruce McLeod, President & CEO of Tenajon. "It appears that results to date are confirming Dr. Nick Carter's hypothesis that the grade of the deposit may be improved by drilling the deposit perpendicular to structures that are thought to control the mineralization."

Thirteen drill holes totaling 2,639 metres in length were completed in 2007. Assay results for the final two holes are pending. Once all the results have been received, an updated NI 43-101 compliant mineral resource estimate will be undertaken. The results for Holes 2007-10 and 11 are summarized below, while additional results from the 2007 drill program are attached.

Hole 2007-10, is located in the southwest corner of a possible open pit. The hole was drilled to test a northwest trending zone of molybdenum mineralization previously intersected in Hole 07-07, which was drilled 50 metres to the southeast and intersected 60.65 metres averaging 0.065% Mo, and in historic drill Hole 66-31, which is located 170 metres to the southeast and intersected 82.3 metres averaging 0.063% Mo (not 43-101 compliant). The results show the northwest trend has the potential to host near surface high grade molybdenum mineralization amenable to open pit mining.

Hole 2007-11 tested the zone outside of the possible open pit and was drilled to test the along strike extension to the intersection in Hole 2007-08 (55.54 metres averaging 0.065% Mo) located 120 metres to the east. Due to topographic conditions the collar for Hole 2007-11 is 140 metres higher than that for 2007-08. Hole 2007-11 intersected weakly anomalous molybdenum values corresponding with the deeper higher grade projection of the zone.

A plan showing the Ajax drill hole locations is available in the map gallery on the Company's website at www.tenajon.com.

The Ajax Property hosts one of North America's largest undeveloped molybdenum deposits. At a 0.04% Mo cut-off the deposit hosts inferred resources of 448 million tonnes averaging 0.063% Mo (623.4 million pounds) and an indicated mineral resource of 38.8 million tonnes averaging 0.064% Mo (56.4 million pounds). The estimate was prepared by Giroux Consultants Ltd., an independent consulting firm (released March 5, 2007). The current price for molybdenum is approximately $32.75 per pound.

The work at the Ajax Property was completed by Apex Geoscience under the supervision of Dave Visagie, P. Geo., Tenajon's Qualified Person as defined by NI 43-101.

At the Ajax Property the drill core is sawn into halves with one half being sent for analysis, the other kept for future reference. All samples were prepared and analyzed at Acme Analytical Labs using a 4 acid digestion with analysis by Induced Couple Polarization (ICP). A stringent program of check, blank and duplicate sampling was employed throughout with duplicates, standards and blanks being entered into the sample stream at regular intervals. In addition, a limited amount of samples are being sent to other labs to determine the reproducibility of the results.
