Global Uranium Signs Letter of Intent to Acquire Coal Project in Alabama

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 22, 2011) - Global Uranium Corporation (TSX VENTURE:GU) (the "Company") announces that it has signed a letter of intent ("LOI") with two vendors to purchase surface rights and mining rights related to 400 acres containing up to three coal seams having an aggregate thickness of up to five feet. The project is located in Jefferson County, Alabama.

Coal samples taken on the property have been analyzed by SGS Laboratories and the coal is considered to be a medium grade metallurgical coal.

Mining operations currently exist recovering coal from these seams on adjacent properties. Coal from these operations is currently being sold to Walters coke and ABC coke plants in Birmingham, Alabama. The prices received for the coal range from $145/ton to $250/ton depending on blend. Current operations are averaging $190/ton delivered.

The terms of the LOI include:

  1. Purchase Price. Subject to the Company's due diligence being satisfactory, it will purchase all vendors' rights and benefits related to the coal project in consideration of the purchase price of US$3,000,000.

  2. Due Diligence. The Company has the right to conduct due diligence investigations related to the project including access to the property and all exploration and mining information, data, analyses, maps, reports, books and records, and documents. The Company also has the right to conduct such tests, investigations, exploration and other activities as it deems necessary to review the extent and quality of coal on the property.

    In consideration for the Company's right to conduct due diligence investigations, the Company will pay the vendors the cash sum of US$10,000, and subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange, will issue to the vendors 50,000 common shares.

  1. Drill Program. The vendors intend to drill four holes on the Property in October 2011 and have booked a drill to carry out the drilling. The purpose of the drilling is to determine seam thickness and quality of coal on the property. The Company has agreed to pay the estimated $30,000 cost of the drilling program and coal analysis.
