Dejour Grows to 818,372 Acres in the Athabasca Basin

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

Doug W. Cannaday, President of Dejour Enterprises Ltd., is pleased to
report the following update on Company activity within Saskatchewan's
Athabasca Basin. Presently, Dejour holds a 100% interest in 50 mineral
claims and 4 mineral exploration permits totaling 818,395 acres (331,200
hectares).

Dejour's most recent staking activity adds 5 mineral claims comprising
61,234 acres (24,781 hectares) expanding and forming a part of the
Company's Fleming Island Project. These 5 additional claims are located
contiguous to the Company's existing Fleming Island Project located at
the southwest end of Cree Lake. Fleming is crossed by a
northwest-trending zone of faults or fractures now occupied by intrusive
diabase dykes. During historic exploration, an occurrence of 3.3%
uranium oxide was discovered in altered rocks adjacent to one dyke on
Fleming Island. In the 1970's, strong EM conductors that lie to the
south were only poorly defined under the island, perhaps due to
increasing sandstone thickness. Today's TEM surveys are more powerful
and will define potentially graphite basement conductors to be drill
tested during an upcoming program.

The Company also reports it has received the original mineral
prospecting permits announced February 9, 2005. The total quantity of
hectares for these permits is 138,676 vs. the 138,020 preliminary
estimate reported previously, an increase of 656 hectares.

Dejour continues to finalize details of summer work programs for its
uranium properties located in the Basin. Further details will be
announced as available.
