Bayswater Closes $25 Million Brokered Private Placement

VANCOUVER, BC -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 8, 2007 -- Bayswater Uranium Corporation (TSX-V: BAY) (the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has closed the brokered private placement previously announced on January 23, 2007 issuing 4,336,800 units of the Company (the "Units") at a price of $1.45 per Unit and 11,375,000 flow-though units (the "FT Units") at a price of $1.65 per FT Unit, raising aggregate gross proceeds of $25,057,110 (the "Offering").

Each Unit comprises one common share and one half of one transferable common share purchase warrant (each whole such purchase warrant, a "Warrant"). Each FT Unit comprises one flow-through common share and one half of one transferable Warrant. Each Warrant is exercisable into one additional common share at an exercise price of $1.85 per common share until September 8, 2008.

The Offering was brokered by Pacific International Securities Inc. (the "Agent"). The Agent has received a commission of 7.0% of the gross proceeds of the Offering paid in a combination of cash and Units. The Agent and its selling group have also received 1,571,180 compensation options (the "Compensation Options"). Each Compensation Option entitles the holder to acquire one additional common share at an exercise price of $1.70 per common share until September 8, 2008.

All of the securities issued under the private placement are subject to a four-month hold period expiring on July 9, 2007.

The gross proceeds raised from the issuance of the FT Units will be used for general exploration expenditures, which will constitute Canadian exploration expenses (as defined in the Income Tax Act) and will be renounced for the 2007 taxation year. Net proceeds of the Offering will be used to fund exploration on the Company's Canadian uranium projects including the Central Mineral Belt-Labrador, Athabasca Basin-Saskatchewan, Thelon Basin-Northwest Territories and Nunavut and the Hermitage Belt-Southern Newfoundland; and for a uranium exploration project in Niger, West Africa once the concessions are granted to the Company and for general working capital purposes.
