Manson Creek Announces Black Lake Uranium Exploration Program

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(CCNMatthews - Feb. 27, 2007) - Manson Creek Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:MCK) ('Manson Creek') is pleased to unveil its exploration program for the Black Lake uranium project.

The Black Lake claim group is comprised of 5,484 hectares in northern Saskatchewan, located 30 kilometers east of Stony Rapids.

The project is located on the leading edge of the Athabasca Basin and is adjacent to a number of prominent regional shear/deformation zones. The bedrock on the claims is basement rock believed to have been unroofed during the last glacial period. This rock, until recently, was covered by the basal layers of the Athabasca Basin.

The Black Lake property represents an under explored uranium deposit model in Canada. The deposit style is best exemplified by the Rossing uranium mine in Namibia, which is the 5th largest uranium mine in the world and supplies 8% of the world's production. Rossing has just celebrated its 20th year of production.

The Black Lake properties cover numerous uranium occurrences within deformed pegmatites and granitoid intrusive rocks. The property has seen varying amounts of historical surface exploration, with the last round of work occurring in the 1970's. Mineralization generally consists of irregularly disseminated uraninite in deformed and folded radioactive pegmatite granites. Molybdenum is often an accessory mineral.

The mineralized zones have been reported to be of widths of one meter to greater than 10 meters and historical assays have reported values of 0.08% to greater than 1% U3O8.

The Black Lake project will see two phases of exploration in 2007. Beginning in May, there will be a geology and geophysical program which will set out the priority areas for the follow up diamond drilling phase.

Phase one, beginning in May, will consist of geological mapping, sampling, prospecting, and ground based radiometric geophysical surveys. This work will expand upon historical mineralized zones and delineate priority zones for diamond drilling.

Phase 2 will be comprised of a planned 2,000 m of diamond drilling, utilizing a helicopter portable drill rig. This work will test historic showings and new zones outlined in Phase one.
