Macusani Yellowcake Announces Additional High Grade Uranium Intersections on Corachapi Properties

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Sept. 29, 2009) – Macusani Yellowcake Inc. ("MYI" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:YEL) is pleased to announce additional results from three previously unassayed drill holes on its recently acquired Corachapi property on the Macusani Plateau in southern Peru (for previous assay results, see press release dated September 9, 2009). The results continue to return significant high grade uranium mineralization over long intervals including 36.0 metres grading 0.0583% U3O8 (118 feet grading 1.166 pounds of U3O8 per ton). The core is from holes drilled by the previous concession holder, RAM Resources Limited (formerly Contact Uranium Limited), which had drilled 193 holes on the properties but had assayed only 87 holes prior to shutting down its exploration activities in Peru. These latest drill hole results are summarized in the table below.

MYI's CEO, Peter Hooper, stated that "These results continue to confirm the high grade potential of the recently acquired Corachapi properties. The Company is on schedule to release a National Instrument 43-101 compliant resource on the Corachapi and Kihitian properties later this year."

These three reported boreholes were drilled by Contact and analysed by Macusani Yellowcake. The boreholes are located on the northern part of the drilled area within the Corachapi concession. Lines 1520 and 1760 are separated by 240m along strike. Boreholes 10 and 12 along line 1760 are separated by 40m normal to the strike of the main N-S long axis of the mineralised structure.

Contact drilled parallel lines, orientated E-W and interspaced at 120m. Along each line platforms were built every 40m. Two boreholes were drilled from each platform, to the W and E respectively at roughly 550

These latest holes analysed start approximately 240 metres North of the last released data by Macusani.-See press release dated Sept 09 09
