Fronteer's Aurora Continues to Expand the Michelin Uranium Deposit in Labrador

Fronteer Development Group Inc. ("Fronteer") (TSX:FRG)(AMEX:FRG) announces that Aurora Energy Resources Inc. ("Aurora") (TSE:AXU), in which Fronteer holds a 47.2% is pleased to announce that ten new drill holes have further expanded the thick, high grade centre of the Michelin uranium deposit ("Michelin"). Drill hole M-06-39, which intersected Michelin at 600 metres depth, indicates that significant grade and thickness have excellent continuity at this depth. Mineralization remains open in all directions. Hole M-06-39 intersected:

- 0.15% U3O8 over 35.16 metres (3.3 pounds of U3O8 per tonne over 115.35 feet) including

- 0.24% U3O8 over 15.79 metres (5.3 pounds of U3O8 per tonne over 51.80 feet)

"In 2006, we drilled 37 holes at Michelin, totaling 25,000 metres," says, Dr. Mark O'Dea, President and CEO of Aurora. "100% of the holes drilled at Michelin this year have intersected uranium mineralization, which has had a profound impact on the size of this growing deposit. Mineralization still remains open for expansion."

Highlights from five other new drill holes include the following intervals:

- 0.12% U3O8 over 37.49 metres in M-06-30A

- 0.26% U3O8 over 17.27 metres in M-06-32

- 0.16% U3O8 over 10.50 metres in M-06-35

- 0.19% U3O8 over 10.85 metres in M-06-37

- 0.17% U3O8 over 9.20 metres n M-06-40

Also of significance, drill hole M-06-33, located 200 metres east of Michelin's main zone, intersected 0.11% U3O8 over 4.00 metres and 0.10% U3O8 over 1.86 metres. This drill hole highlights the potential for a significant expansion of Michelin along strike.
