Commander Resources Ltd.: Uranium Exploration Program Begins in Newfoundland

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Sept. 22, 2005) - COMMANDER RESOURCES LTD. (TSX VENTURE:CMD) reports the start of the second phase of exploration work on the Blue Hills and White Bear River, N.F. properties located just north of the port of Burgeo on the south coast of Newfoundland. The program will include prospecting, mapping and a combination of basal till soil sampling and machine trenching and sampling using a back-hoe. Results of this next phase of work will be used to prioritize targets for drill-testing late this year and through the winter.

Uranium mineralization on both properties appears stratabound hosted within a sedimentary and volcanic basin with several oxidized and reduced sequences which may provide for good size potential. Glacial overburden is thin but extensive limiting bedrock exposure to small "windows". The mechanical trenching will open up larger areas for sampling and mapping and the basal till sampling will provide bedrock data immediately beneath the till cover.

Results from the first phase of work were previously reported in Company news releases dated July 12 and August 18, 2005. This work returned values from bedrock samples grading up to 2.06% U3O8 (45.32 pounds per tonne U3O8) and widely scattered boulders grading up to 1.14% U3O8 or 25.08 pounds per tonne U3O8.

The property has not been previously drilled, is located close to a paved highway, close to a sea port and is in a sparsely vegetated area. The uranium spot price is currently in excess of US$30 per pound and the long term uranium market outlook remains positive. The projected supply shortfall to meet this demand and future depletion of existing high grade uranium deposits means exploration and discovery of new resources must take place in the near term.
