Commander Increases Exposure to Uranium Belt Through Royalty Agreement

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Nov. 3, 2005) - Commander Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:CMD) reports that the Company will receive a finder's fee from Pathfinder Resources Ltd. in conjunction with the acquisition by Pathfinder of 1429 claims aggregating 35,725 hectares in southern Newfoundland.

The finder's fee payable to Commander, upon receipt of regulatory approval, will consist of 150,000 common shares of Pathfinder and a 2% Royalty on all commodities produced from the claims staked by Pathfinder.

Commander recently staked an additional 400 square kilometers of land to cover the 50 kilometre long core area of the uranium belt between its Blue Hills and White Bear properties following the discovery on the White Bear Property of a new uranium prospect with grades up to 1.32% U3O8 (see the Company's news release dated November 1, 2005). This follows earlier results reported from the Blue Hills Property that included values in outcrop and boulders up to 2.06% U3O8 (see the Company's news releases dated July 12 and August 18, 2005).

Pathfinder's claims are located to the east and west of the boundary of Commander's expanded and 100% controlled property holding (see the map on the Company's website). The agreement provides Commander with exposure to a much larger land position in a developing uranium district.

As part of the finder's fee agreement, should Pathfinder elect to abandon any of its claims, the claims will first be offered to Commander, who, upon election, will be assigned a 100% interest in those claims. Pathfinder must transfer the claims to Commander with a minimum one year's assessment work filed.
