Bonaventure Enterprises Inc.: K9 Winter Drill Results Point to Broader Intervals of Significant Uranium Mineralization Providing Strong Support for Geological Model

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - July 10, 2008) - BONAVENTURE ENTERPRISES INC. (TSX VENTURE:BVT)(FRANKFURT:YQG) is pleased to provide additional results from the recently completed 4,229m of the 20,000m diamond drilling 2008 program on the Company's K9 Uranium Property.

Highlights include:

- 23 of 25 drill holes with uranium mineralization:

- 19 holes showing grades of 0.10 kg/t U3O8 or better;

- 5 drill holes (K9-03, 09, 11, 13 and 21) intersected 50m to 100m wide with 0.10 kg/t U3O8; and

- 0.25 kg/t U3O8 over 5.1m and 0.13 kg/t U3O8 over 11.2m in K9-03;

Priority sampling on approximately 15% of the drill core assayed to date indicate that the uranium at surface is continuous at depth as a series of uranium enriched zones of variable widths, five of which are minimum 50m wide in the least prospective "B" zone portion of the K9 Uranium Corridor. The balance of the outstanding 85% of the drill core assays are expected to be completed as soon as possible.

"The initial results indicate that we have intersected the uranium system that we were targeting which is critical in the development of our geological model. Drilling on the most prospective "A" zone will likely confirm higher uranium grades based on surface sampling results from 2007. The results are particularly encouraging as they reinforce why the Property has some of the highest primary bedrock and secondary lake-bottom sediment uranium readings in Quebec" said Mr. Jean Lafleur, P. Geo. President and CEO of the Company.

Appended Figures 1 and 2 illustrate the K9 property, the K9 Uranium Corridor, the most prospective "A" zone and "B" zone, the geophysical uranium anomalies and the location of diamond drill holes. The uranium assay results in excess of 0.10 kg/t U3O8 over 0.5m are listed in the following table:

- Drill core samples were bagged in 0.2m to 1.9m length, tagged
with sample numbers, sealed and shipped to ALS Group Laboratories
(Chemex) Laboratory in Val d'Or (Quebec), where samples were bar-
coded, dried, weighed, crushed and pulverized. A 50 gram portion
of the -200 mesh fraction was shipped to North Vancouver (B.C.) for
quantitative chemical analysis using the ME-MS61 (Mass spectrometer)
Elements Assay Protocol. Standards, blank and duplicate samples
were added for Quality Assurance and Quality Control.


The U3O8 assay results from diamond drill holes K9-01 to K9-24 from the eastern "B" zone of the K9UC are available on the Company website at www.bonaventure.us.
