Manson Creek Uranium Project Drilling Completed

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Aug. 22, 2007) - Manson Creek Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:MCK) ('Manson Creek') is pleased to announce the successful completion of a 1498.57 meter diamond drill program on the Black Lake uranium project, located in northern Saskatchewan.

The completed diamond drill program, successfully tested two significantly anomalous areas, the A Zone and the Charlebois Lake Zone, both identified during the Phase One exploration program concluded in May. The previously announced A Zone diamond drilling entailed 716.54 meters in three holes.

Two diamond drill holes have tested the Charlebois Lake Zone, a radiometric anomaly with a strike length in excess of two kilometers. The first hole, 07CL-01, tested a large, anomalously mineralized, pegmatite exposed in outcrop over an area approximating 150 by 80 meters. The second hole, 07CL-02, stepped out 480 meters along strike to the east and cut numerous pegmatite dykes comprising the Charlebois Lake radiometric anomaly. These two drill holes, totaling 782.03 meters, have tested these significantly anomalous areas and sampling of the drill core is now complete.

SRC Analytical Laboratories of Saskatoon will perform the assay work on the drill core samples. The analytical results are expected in 4 to 6 weeks.

The Company continues to develop the Black Lake project which it believes to represent an under explored deposit model in Canada. The Black Lake claims cover numerous bedrock uranium occurrences within pegmatite and granitoid intrusive rocks located on the edge of the Athabasca Basin.
