Jourdan Resources Inc.: Two Drill Holes Completed and New Surface Sampling Assay Results in the Wakeham Sedimentary Basin

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Dec. 6, 2007) - JOURDAN Resources (TSX:JRN) is pleased to announce that the first two core drill holes are completed on its uranium property in the Wakeham sedimentary Basin, 70 km North of Havre St.Pierre. The drilling program is carried out by New Valley Drilling, Springdale, Newfounland.

Drill hole S-1, intersected deposit 2-A, at the depth of 25 meters, from 44.70m to 46.0 m, for a width of 1.30m. Drill hole S-2 intersected the same deposit at the depth of 50 meters, from 64.7m to 65.9 m, for a width of 1.20m. The samples were sent to the laboratories for assays.

The table below gives the assay results of six grab samples taken from
surface outcrop on the 2-A deposit: (i)

(i) Samples were assayed at AlsChemex Laboratories. Field samples
were bagged, tagged and sealed on-site and transported to the
AlsChemex facilities in Val d'Or (Quebec) for preparation. They
were dried, weighed, crushed to -10 mesh with a 250 g fraction
puverized and sent to AlsChemex Vancouver for final analysis.

Four uranium-bearing deposits have so far been discovered on this property. The uranium mineralization is hosted in paragneiss beds intercalated between quartzite beds. These deposits are designated 1-A, 1-B, 2-A and 2-B. They are all lined up in a N-15-W trend, over a strike length of 1.7 km. The dips are of 65 degrees towards the East.

Deposit 1-A has a width from 1 to 5 meters while the other deposits have widths from 1 to 2 meters. Eight grab samples taken from deposit 1-A and five grab samples from deposit 1-B have given average grades of 0.74 and 3.08 lbs U3O8 per ton, respectively. Grab samples were also taken from deposits 2-A and 2-B but assay results are not yet available.

Further, ground prospection with a discriminating spectrometer has revealed the existence of an additional radiometric zone, designated zone 3, with a length of 1.5 km, a width of several tens of meters and a radiometric intensity from 100 to 400 ppm U. This zone could potentially represent an open pit mineable deposit. It is located in the South extension of the above described zones 1 and 2.

A helicopter borne geophysical survey conducted by GPR International in August 07 identified two additional radiometric zones, with a predominance of uranium, designated zones 4 and 5, at a distance of 1.5 km East of zone 3. These zones will be explored on the ground at the beginning of the next summer.

JOURDAN is of the opinion that this drilling campaign constitutes an important milestone in the uranium exploration program which it initiated in June 2007 in the Wakeham sedimentary Basin. This program was designed by JOURDAN to demonstrate that the Wakeham Basin contains uranium deposits similar to the Elliott Lake and the Athabaska models. The deposits which are presently being drilled are considered as of sedimentary origin; the uranium mineralization being hosted in paragneiss beds intercalated between quartzite beds. The sedimentary origin of the paragneiss beds has been confirmed by the determination of the major elements in 8 samples with have all given alkali to alumina ratios of less than 1.0.

JOURDAN owns an interest of 100% in 522 claims covering 282 in the Wakeham Basin.

Works on the property are supervised by Hubert Mvondo, Ph.D. who is assisted by Ramin Salkhi, M.Sc and member of l'Ordre des Geologues du Quebec.
