Macusani Yellowcake Intersects 9 m Averaging 0.123% U3O8 (2.4 lbs/ton) Including 2 m Grading 0.529% U3O8 (10.5 lbs/ton) at Kihitian Property, Peru

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Nov. 30, 2011) - Macusani Yellowcake Inc. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:YEL)(FRANKFURT:QG1) is pleased to announce additional assay results from the ongoing drilling program at the Chilcuno Chico anomaly on the Kihitian Property in Puno, Peru. These results continue to extend both the "A" zone and deeper Manto "B" zone. The best result was a 9 m intersection from 210 to 219 m that returned a weighted average of 1,238 ppm U3O8 (or 2.476 lbs/ton). This intersection included a higher-grade zone of 2.0 m that averaged 5,296 ppm U3O8 (or 10.592 lbs/ton). (Note that these intersections do not represent true widths.)

These results are from boreholes drilled towards the South and South West (see press releases dated July 28, 2011, August 10, 2011, and September 29, 2011 for drilling platform locations).

To date drilling within the Chilcuno Chico target inside the Kihitian concession delineates an area of roughly 700m x 400m.

President and CEO, Peter Hooper, stated: "We are very pleased with the assay results as they continue to add to the resource base across the zones identified in our current model."

Assay results are shown in following table:

Quality Control and Analytical Procedures

Core samples have been crushed and representative samples analysed for Uranium (U) abundance and a suite of 40 elements. The necessary analytical quality control and assurance has been completed by insertion of reference material, duplicate samples and blank material. After crushing, the core is placed in sealed bags and shipped to the CIMM's preparation laboratories in Juliaca. Following the preparation stage, the sample pulps are sent to CIMM analytical laboratory in Lima where U and a suite of forty other elements are analysed using ICP-MS methodology.

CIMM Peru is an ISO certified assay laboratory. The program is designed to include a comprehensive assay quality control routine comprising the systematic use of standards, blanks and field duplicate samples. Secondary laboratories are used for check assaying.
