Commander Resources Ltd.: Surface Uranium Results-Hermitage Project

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Nov. 14, 2006) - Commander Resources Ltd.(TSX VENTURE:CMD) reports additional uranium assay results from the Company's Hermitage Uranium Project in southern Newfoundland including channel samples from Strickland, a new discovery on Quinlan and high grade uranium-molybdenum composite chip sample from Chan North.


At ST-129, a 6.7 metre long composite channel sample from within the 35 metre wide alteration zone, graded 0.05% U3O8 including three higher grade samples, 0.10% U3O8 over 1.5 metres, 0.12% U3O8 over 1.0 metre and 0.11% U3O8 over 0.6 metre. The 6.7 metre channel terminates at the overburden contact, the overburden is strongly radioactive for a further five metres along the grid line to the south.

Additional higher grade channel samples included 0.10% U3O8 over 1.14 metres and 0.11% U3O8 over 0.8 metres, the latter channel ended at strongly radioactive overburden extending for several metres.

At Troy's Pond, one kilometre west from ST-129, two channel samples graded 0.08% to 0.11% U3O8 over 0.6 to 0.8 metres, both end at the overburden cover which is radioactive beyond the outcrop contact.

Detailed geological mapping of the entire trend between Troy's Pond and ST-129 is underway and an alpha track survey is planned to map out the uranium zones beneath the overburden to aid in targeting a first pass drill program.


On the Quinlan option, located five kilometres east of ST-129, at least four separate uranium-bearing stratigraphic units were identified within a 12-15 metre wide zone that extends over an 800 metre long structure/contact zone. Twenty grab samples were collected from first pass prospecting, all anomalous in uranium, including three samples greater than 0.10% U3O8 and eight greater than 0.02% U3O8. The prospect area is covered by a thin veneer of soil and grass; bedrock was exposed by hand trenching where radioactive overburden was encountered. Detailed geological mapping and surface sampling are planned.

Chan North

At the Chan North prospect, located in the Blue Hills area, an assay of 0.48 % U3O8 was recovered from a 2-3 metre wide fractured zone in Baggs Hill granite. The composite rock chip sample also contained a high molybdenum value of 0.23% Mo. More detailed geological mapping and sampling will be completed on this prospect.

Commander's Hermitage Uranium Property covers 24 known uranium occurrences. Thirteen of these were made by the Company's prospecting crew since late 2005, seven of which were made with the assistance of the airborne radiometric survey.

The property is 10-30 kilometres from a sea port and has a paved highway and power line running through it. There is an excellent mining culture in the province and a good local labour pool. These conditions provide the opportunity for lower capital and operating costs and an accelerated production decision.

As reported on October 31, 2006, a 3,000 metre drill program is scheduled to commence on the Hermitage Property in mid-November.

Bernard Kahlert, P.Eng is the Company's Qualified Person under N.I. 43-101 for the Hermitage Project.

Samples were sent to ACME Analytical Laboratory, Vancouver, BC where they were analyzed using 1DX Multiple Element ICP methods. Values greater than 0.24% U3O8 are assayed by methods 7TD using 4-acid digestion with ICP-ES analysis.

(all uranium values expressed in U3O8 are calculated from uranium analyses received from ACME Analytical Services and reported in ppm U.)
