Dejour Expands Athabasca Basin Uranium Holdings to 887,986 Acres/359,357 ha.

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Sept. 15, 2005) - Dejour Enterprises Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:DJE) -

Robert L. Hodgkinson, Chairman & CEO, reports the Company has successfully staked four (4) new uranium claims in Saskatchewan's Athabasca Basin adding 17,225 acres (6,971ha.) to the Company's holdings. These new claims are of material interest to the Company and were targeted as a result of Dejour's successful MEGATEM II airborne electromagnetic survey over its Fleming property.

The survey reveals several previously unknown electromagnetic anomalies two of which trended off Dejour's original Fleming Project property onto land previously unclaimed. The Company made it a priority to stake the available land immediately. The new claims are contiguous with Dejour's Fleming Project claims increasing the project by 25% to 84,819 acres (34,325 hectares).

The Fleming Project was one of the first properties acquired by the Company in the Athabasca Basin where claims were staked to cover identified outcropping uranium mineralization. Grab samples from mineralization in fractures in diabase dikes cutting the Athabasca sandstone assayed up to 3% U308. The Company conducted a review of historical exploration data on file with Saskatchewan Industry and Resources which revealed that most of the Fleming Project lands have not previously been explored. J. Allan McNutt, P. Geo., M.A. Sc. is the qualified person on the project.
