Mesa Uranium Corp.: Commences Drilling at North Alice and Texwood

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Nov. 29, 2006) - Mesa Uranium Corp. (TSX VENTURE:MZU) is pleased to announce that drilling has commenced for two target areas, the North Alice Mine and Texwood Mine, at the 100%-owned Lisbon Valley uranium project in Utah. The project covers 7,300 hectares in the famous Lisbon Valley Mining District with historic production of 85 million pounds of U3O8.

The North Alice Mine target is adjacent to the historic North Alice Mine, along the northwestern ore trend. The North Alice mine is part of a cluster of mines that together produced 30 million pounds of U3O8. Drilling will explore for mineralization extending beyond the old mine workings along the ore trend.

The Texwood Mine target is along the northern ore trend at the Texwood Mine. The Texwood Mine target is located adjacent to the Texwood Mine and is 600 meters northwest of the historic Mi Vida Mine, which produced 12 million pounds of U3O8 from 1953 through 1970.

The Lisbon Valley District produced over 85 million pounds of U3O8, at some of the highest uranium grades in the United States, averaging 0.4 percent U3O8. The Lisbon Valley Mining District is located in the Colorado Plateau region, 30 miles south of Moab, in San Juan County, Utah.

Mesa is exploring to discover new uranium deposits in the district by drilling along ore trends, searching for extensions of historic uranium mines. Phase I drilling at the Lisbon Mine target has identified a new uranium trend and follow up drilling is currently being planned (see Mesa news release dated October 25, 2006). The current drilling at the North Alice Mine and Texwood Mine targets is the initial phase of drilling at these targets. Mesa has achieved these results during its first year.

The project area is fully described in a current National Instrument 43-101 compliant report available for examination on and on
