Manson Creek Resources Ltd.: Black Lake Uranium Property Acquired

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(CCNMatthews - Nov. 9, 2006) - Manson Creek Resources Ltd. ("Manson Creek") (TSX VENTURE:MCK) is pleased to announce the acquisition of the Black Lake Uranium property, located approximately 40 kilometers from Stony Rapids, in northern Saskatchewan.

The property will be explored for basement-hosted uranium deposits, a deposit type that has been under explored in the province. The seven mineral claims, totaling 5,848 hectares, host known uranium occurrences, and are located within, or near, major regional trends believed to be active during the mineralizing processes.

The occurrences within this area are commonly contained within lit-par-lit type pegmatite which is part of a paragneiss sequence. Uranium mineralization within these occurrences is commonly associated with molybdenite, pyrrhotite, pyrite and lesser chalcopyrite. Areas of the Black Lake property have seen varying levels of historic exploration including limited diamond drilling.

Manson Creek may acquire a 100% interest in the Black Lake property, over a three-year option period, through staged cash payments totaling $20,000 and the issuance of 400,000 common shares of the Company. The property vendor will retain a 1.5% NSR (Net Smelter Royalty), of which 1.0% is purchasable at Manson Creek's election for $1,500,000.

Manson Creek is currently compiling historic data to guide its future exploration programs on the property.

This transaction is subject to all regulatory and exchange approvals.
