ESO Commences Drilling on Donna Gold Property

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 7, 2010) - ESO Uranium Corp. (TSX VENTURE:ESO)(FRANKFURT:E2G) (the "Company" or "ESO") is pleased to announce that it has commenced drilling at its 100% owned Donna Gold Property on Monashee Mountain, which is located approximately 65 Kilometers east of Vernon, BC.

The purpose of the current drill program is to test targeted areas on the central and western parts of a large anomaly that extends more than 1,600 meters along the height of land between the Kettle River and Yeoward Creek, which are historical gold placer drainages. Recent soil sampling of the area showed extensions of the larger gold anomaly with values of up to 733 ppb gold in soils.

Sampling by ESO in September of 2009 returned a chip sample over 3 meters horizontal along a flat lying quartz vein with 12.3g/t gold within the trenched area. While some samples show significantly high gold values, the main exploration target is a bulk tonnage gold-silver deposit that could be hosted by the quartz stockwork and the dioritic dykes.

The geological and geomorphological settings have some similarity with the White gold property in the Yukon of Underworld Resources Ltd, which appears to be part of the source of placer gold in the White River drainage. On the Donna property, quartz veining is hosted by metamorphosed rocks of the Thompson Assemblage, a small accreted terrane with siliciclastic sediments and minor limestones and cherts of Carboniferous to Permo-Triassic age intruded by Cretaceous granodioritic rocks.
