Manson Creek Uranium Project Drilling Update

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Aug. 13, 2007) - Manson Creek Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:MCK) ('Manson Creek') is pleased to provide an update on the diamond drill program underway on its Black Lake uranium project, located in northern Saskatchewan.

The drilling is now complete on the A Zone, a 200 by 250 meter area containing significant volumes of radioactive pegmatite. Outcrop grab samples in this zone returned assay values of 0.108% to 0.589% U3O8. The pegmatites also locally contain abundant molybdenum (Mo) with assay values ranging from 0.077% to 0.302% Mo. Three drill holes, totaling 716.54 meters, have tested the zone and sampling is ongoing.

Drilling is in progress on the Charlebois Lake Zone, a radiometric anomaly with a strike length in excess of two kilometers. Numerous mineralized pegmatites 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 current helicopter supported diamond drill program is designed to test two significant anomalous areas, the A Zone and the Charlebois Lake Zone, identified in the Phase One program completed in May. Samples collected are submitted to the SRC Analytical Laboratories of Saskatoon for assay work.

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.
