Manson Creek Announces Drilling Underway on Black Lake Uranium Project

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - July 17, 2007) - Manson Creek Resources Ltd. ('Manson Creek') (TSX VENTURE:MCK) is pleased to announce the commencement of the diamond drill program on its Black Lake uranium property, located in northern Saskatchewan.

The 2,000 meter helicopter supported diamond drill program will test two significant target areas, the A Zone and the Charlebois Lake Zone, outlined in the Phase One program completed in May.

Drilling is in progress on the A Zone, a 200 by 250 meter area containing significant volumes of radioactive pegmatite. Outcrop grab samples have returned assay values of 0.108 to 0.589% U3O8. The pegmatites within this area locally contain abundant molybdenum (Mo) with assay values ranging from 0.077% to 0.302% Mo.

Once drilling is complete on the A Zone, the drill will mobilize to the Charlebois Lake Zone, a radiometric anomaly with a strike length in excess of two kilometers. Numerous mineralized pegmatites, identified during the Phase One work program, display widths in the order of a meter to tens of meters. Outcrop samples returned assay values of 0.001% to 0.090% U3O8.

The Company continues to develop the Black Lake project which it believes represents an under explored for deposit model in Canada. The Rossing uranium deposit in Namibia best exemplifies this bulk tonnage style uranium deposit. Rossing, the 5th largest uranium mine in the world, supplies 8% of the world's production.
