Nova Uranium Corporation: Gold Coin Arizona Project Exploration Update

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Dec. 2, 2009) - Nova Uranium (TSX VENTURE:NUC) is pleased to provide an update on the ongoing exploration work on its 100% owned Gold Coin Arizona gold project.

Nova's Phase One groundwork, in preparation for drill testing, is near completion. Field crews have subjected the entire property to a ground-based magnetic and VLF-EM geophysical survey totalling about fifty line kilometres and also a detailed soil sampling program; more than 800 samples have been forwarded to the laboratory for analyses. Early review of the soil analytical data indicates the presence of a strong northward trending combined base and precious metal anomaly. Final geophysical results are now being compiled in preparation for technical review. Diamond drilling testing is planned for early 2010.

During the due diligence period leading up to the acquisition of this gold property, Nova personnel collected and assayed continuous rock chip samples from two historical trenches. Gold assay results included 13.7 metres of 3.12 grams per tonne (g/t) gold, including 6.1 metres of 4.65 g/t gold and 18.29 metres of 1.85 g/t gold, including 4.57 metres of 5.61 g/t gold (see Nova news in dated Sept. 22, 2009). Importantly, in the case of trench No. 1, sampling starts and ends in mineralization.

Nova Uranium has no debt and a strong cash position and is therefore well positioned to carry out significant exploration and project evaluations. Nova's new board of directors and management team have a mandate to actively seek out and acquire multiple high-quality mineral properties. The acquisition of the Gold Coin project is indicative of this strategy. Gold Coin is located in the Turquoise mining district, located within a broad north-south mineral trend extending more than 100 kilometres from southeast Arizona, United States, into Sonora, Mexico. The area includes two other well-known historical gold-copper-silver mining districts: Warren (Bisbee) and Tombstone.
