Ditem Explorations Inc.: Drilling Program Underway on Otish Uranium

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - March 9, 2010) - Ditem Explorations (TSX VENTURE:DIT) is pleased to report that the 2010 exploration program on the Company's Otish Mountains uranium property in Quebec is underway. A fully operational camp has been established to accommodate geophysical and drilling crews. Drilling on the first hole began yesterday.

The program consists of ground geophysical surveys and diamond drilling to test airborne uranium anomalies, three of which are associated with conductors and a fourth is in close proximity to a uranium occurrence. Ground geophysical surveys have defined four drill targets and the drill program may be extended based on results. However, this will be subject to weather conditions and general winter road access conditions. 

The current drill targets lie within the Otish sedimentary basin in which uranium is known to occur in faults and at or near the unconformity of the Otish sediments with the underlying Archean rocks. The Otish sedimentary basin is similar in age and geology to the Athabasca sedimentary basin in Saskatchewan which hosts the major Canadian uranium deposits.

Ditem Explorations is a uranium exploration and development company with properties in the Athabasca Basin in Saskatchewan (Beartooth Island and Cree Lake) and the Otish Basin (Otish Uranium) in Quebec. Existing properties and general information may be viewed on the Company's website at www.ditem.com.
