Nuinsco and Temex Report Drill Results

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Feb. 26, 2009) - Nuinsco Resources Limited ("Nuinsco" or "the Company")(TSX:NWI)(www.nuinsco.ca) and partner Temex Resources Corp. (TSX VENTURE:TME)(FRANKFURT:TQ1) ("Temex") today announced that anomalous uranium ("U") mineralization greater than 100 ppm U was reported in seven holes of the 12-hole, 1,386 metre diamond drilling program conducted on the Marijane Lake and Huston Lake Uranium Properties (the "Claims") in December, 2008.

The program tested targets within three distinct radiometric anomaly areas identified from a helicopter-borne radiometric and magnetic geophysical survey conducted in May, 2008. Ten holes were drilled on the Huston Lake Property. Of these, nine tested an airborne radiometric anomaly five kilometres in length, from which follow-up prospecting had returned up to 3,240 ppm U from grab samples of felsic dykes and/or sills interpreted to be extensions of the uranium bearing Marijane Lake Batholith. Six of these holes returned anomalous uranium mineralization, with the most significant results reported being from drill hole THL-08-01 which returned 1,170 ppm U and 1,510 ppm U within an interval of 663 ppm U over 3.90 metres and drill hole THL-08-03 which returned 164 ppm U over 10.30 metres.

One of the holes drilled on the Huston Lake Property tested a broad radiometric anomaly over the Marijane Lake Batholith 10 kilometres to the south of the area described above from which limited prospecting had returned 1,450 ppm U from a grab sample. No anomalous uranium mineralization was intersected in the drill hole but this anomaly remains largely untested.

The other two holes drilled on the Marijane Lake Property intersected predominantly felsic intrusive rocks of the Marijane Lake Batholith where prospecting had identified anomalous uranium mineralization exceeding 200 ppm U over areas of up to 0.5 by 1.5 kilometres with individual grab samples reporting as high as 1040, 1360 and 1890 ppm U. Anomalous mineralization up to 122 ppm U within a broad interval of 8.70 metres was intersected in one of the holes.

In all holes, the entire length of the drill hole was sampled; 850 samples were sent for analysis to Loring Laboratories in Calgary, Alberta for analysis (see Note 1 below).

Nuinsco has the option to earn a 50% interest in the Claims by spending a total of $750,000 over a two year period and by making cash payments and share issuances to Temex (news release May 15, 2008). Nuinsco has completed the initial expenditure of $500,000 required by May, 2009 with the next stage of exploration program funding required by May 2010. Nuinsco may now elect to act as operator of the program, and is evaluating its options with regard to additional work going forward. Paul Jones, President acts as QP under NI 43-101 and has reviewed and approved the contents of this news release.

Note 1. Loring Laboratories procedure for uranium analysis: Sample preparation includes crushing, grinding and pulverizing of a representative sample to -150 mesh. The geochemical analysis procedure for preliminary detection of low levels of uranium employs a hydrochloric acid digestion of a 0.5 gram sample, followed by dilution to 10 ml. The solution is analyzed fluorometrically, with a 0.1 ppm detection limit for uranium; results are reported as ppm for uranium. The flourometric assay procedure used for the analysis of ore grade material employs a total digestion of the sample using a HNO3-HCl-HF-H2SO4 multi-acid digestion of a 1.0 gram sample, with a 0.001% U3O8 detection limit; results are reported as percent U3O8.
