Uranium 308 Corp. Issues Geologic Review of Janchivlan Project in Mongolia

Confirms Results From USSR Exploration in 1980s; Focuses Uranium Exploration on Two Target Zones; Samples En Route for Assay at SGS Group Lab; Also Potential for Large Scale Tin and Tungsten

BEIJING, CHINA--(Marketwire - Oct. 3, 2007) - Uranium 308 Corp. (OTCBB:URCO) (The "Company") is pleased to announce the completion of the initial geologic review on its wholly-owned Janchivlan uranium project located 70 km southeast of Ulaanbaatar, the capital of Mongolia.

The Company controls two exploration licenses on the 196.38 sq. km Janchivlan property through its wholly-owned BVI subsidiary, Mongolia Energy Limited ("MEL") and MEL's wholly-owned Mongolian Subsidiary, Tooroibandi Limited, which enhances the Company's operational effectiveness in Mongolia. Uranium 308 Corp.'s ongoing exploration program, which started in mid-August 2007, has conducted preliminary fieldwork that confirms the accuracy and reliability of the results obtained from USSR-era exploration in 1982-1985.

The Soviet-led exploration identified four uranium mineralization zones with average uranium grades ranging from 0.002% to 0.28%. Exploration data available from the Soviet reports in 1982-85 combined with our own exploration data suggests the property could contain a large scale uranium mineralization. Samples from Uranium 308 Corp.'s exploration program to date are en route to SGS group labs in Toronto, Canada for testing.

Uranium 308 Corp. has confirmed that Janchivlan's alteration and mineralization zones are primarily controlled by east-west trending faults and that mineralization is especially enriched at the intersections of the E-W and N-S trending faults. This E-W shear zone, a major ore control structure, has been mapped for 7 km. Current data indicates that uranium ore confined to the target areas represents a potential zone of permissive rock with alteration and structure covering nearly 100 sq. km. Uranium 308 Corp.'s current exploration focuses on two promising sub-areas (approximate 4 km2 in total) in Target 2 and Target 3 zones.

Project Geology

The Janchivlan property is located in the Khentey urano-metallogenic region, a 1200 km long and 120 to 150 km wide inter-Mongolia-Russian geological belt that contains several well known large to super large uranium deposits. They include the Gorney (C1+C2 5,300t; resources: 13,000t); and Bereskoe and Yugar uranium deposits, as well as several medium to small scale uranium deposits such as the Akuhtin, Balon-Ulanka and Eastern uranium deposits.

It is part of a 500-600km2 granitic plutonic intrusion that was emplaced in the late Triassic to early Jurassic time period. The primary host rock is coarse grain biotitic granite that has been pervasively reformed by argillic, chloritic, and phyllic alteration and silicification. These rocks are permissive to uranium mineralization, which has been discovered in close to surface secondary ores including uranite and torbernite. The primary ore, fluorite-sulphide-uraninite plus coffinite, is widely intercepted at depth.

On-going Exploration

Apart from the target areas, the remaining ground within the licenses has been shown to have similar structural control, but requires further investigation to confirm the presence of mineralization. The secondary ore, expected to be amenable to in-situ leaching, is found to a depth of 400m. USSR-era drilling confirmed the existence of primary ore in these areas, but the extent of the mineralization has not yet been determined. The footprints of the secondary ore, in conjunction with known structural controls, indicate that there could be more primary than secondary ore. Other prospects on the property show promise of mineralization and will be investigated as the program develops.

There is also alluvial placer tin and tungsten mineralization shed from the intrusives that has accumulated in drainages widely distributed throughout the valleys on the property. There is also tin and tungsten mineralization in veins in the granitic intrusion. In total, there is potential for large-scale tin and tungsten mineralization, which the Company also intends to investigate.
