About Liberty Star Uranium & Metals Corp.

Liberty Star Uranium & Metals Corp. is an Arizona-based mineral exploration company engaged in the acquisition and exploration of mineral properties in the states of Arizona and Alaska. Currently we control three properties totaling approximately 160,000 acres (about 250 square miles) which are located over what management considers some of North America's richest mineralized regions for uranium, copper, gold, and molybdenum (moly).

Under our primary North Pipes Super Project, Liberty Star holds 1856 standard Federal lode mining claims covering over 38,000 acres in numerous blocks targeting breccia pipe hosted uranium deposits. The breccia pipes are part of the large uranium bearing breccia pipe terrain which occurs on the Arizona Strip lying just south of the Utah border. Eight mines were brought into production during the 1970s and early 1980s on deposits discovered within the immediate area. The uranium bearing pipes which were mined are the second highest grade uranium mineral deposits in the world and the highest grade in the United States. Previously mined mineralization in these pipes has graded about 0.6% to 0.7% uranium or about 12 to 14 pounds per ton. In addition to uranium they are known to contain copper, zinc, silver, vanadium, cobalt, nickel, molybdenum, gallium, germanium and other metals. Past producers have recovered copper, silver and vanadium as by-products of uranium mining. Liberty Star has a joint venture agreement with XState Resources, Ltd. for exploring, developing, and mining these deposits on an additional 14 claims in Mohave County in Arizona.

Through its wholly owned subsidiary, Big Chunk Corp., Liberty Star also holds the claims to our Big Chunk Super Project, covering approximately 177 square miles in southwestern Alaska and targeting copper, gold and molybdenum; and our Bonanza Hills Project, covering approximately 14 square miles in southwestern Alaska and targeting gold with by-product silver.

Liberty Star Uranium & Metals Corp. was founded in 2004. Formerly known as Liberty Star Gold Corp., in April 2007 we changed our name to Liberty Star Uranium & Metals Corp. to better reflect our current activities.
