Jourdan Resources Inc.: Discovery of Six Radiometric Uranium Anomalies

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Aug. 27, 2007) - JOURDAN Resources (TSX VENTURE:JRN) is pleased to announce the discovery of six (6) radiometric uranium anomalies outlined by a helicopter borne geophysical survey that covered its properties in the Wakeham Sedimentary Basin on the St.Lawrence North Shore.

The anomalies are given by high radioactive values showing a strong predominance of uranium over thorium and potassium.

Each anomaly has a length of about 1 km. Five of them are lined up, along a NW trend, over a strike length of 6 km. The 6th anomaly is located 1 km further North. The anomalies are all located within a sedimentary bed which is believed to occupy the bottom of the Wakeham Sedimentary Basin, thus offering the possibility of being related to uranium mineralization of the Athabaska Basin, in Saskatchewan.

Jourdan owns 346 mining claims covering 187 km2 in the Wakeham Sedimentary Basin, along its western border.

The geophysical survey was conducted by GPR International, with equipment comprising a spectrometer with uranium, thorium and potassium windows, a magnetometer and a VLF-EM.

Ground follow up work is being undertaken comprising detailed ground spectral scintillometer prospecting, geochemical soil sampling, geological mapping, trenching, bedrock sampling and drilling. A crew of some 15 men is on the property. First assay results of soil and rock samples are expected by mid-September.

Jourdan's property is located 70 km NE of the town of Havre St.Pierre and 30 km North of the titanium mine operated by Quebec Iron and Titanium (QIT)

Mr. Emilien Seguin, President, a qualified person in regards to the 43-101 rules, has reviewed and approved the technical content of this press release.
