TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Oct. 11, 2011) - Laramide Resources Ltd. ("Laramide" or the "Company")(TSX:LAM) is pleased to provide a further update on its permitting efforts for the La Sal Project in San Juan County, Utah. A final Environmental Assessment ("EA") has been prepared by the Moab Field Office of the US Bureau of Land Management ("BLM") and was made public on October 7, 2011. This initiates the final 30 day public comment period following which a decision with respect to the permit can be expected. A copy of the EA can be found on Laramide's website ( or through the following link to the BLM's Utah website:

The La Sal Project is located in the Lisbon Valley Uranium District in San Juan County, Utah and was previously permitted, developed and operated by Homestake Mining Company, (a wholly owned subsidiary of Barrick Gold Corporation). Laramide is planning for underground uranium exploration and development activities leading towards potential production at the La Sal Project. An existing 1,200 meter access drive and a ventilation raise at site should facilitate a rapid startup scenario once permits are granted to Laramide. The project is located 40 miles from Denison's White Mesa mill at Blanding, Utah.
