Nuinsco Ranks High In Race To Find Next Uranium Super Deposit

Diabase Peninsula project has all the right ingredients, says Northern Prospector Magazine

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Nov. 9, 2006) - Nuinsco Resources Limited's ("Nuinsco")(TSX:NWI)( Diabase Peninsula uranium exploration project has been named as a leader in the race to find the next uranium "Super Deposit" in Saskatchewan's Athabasca Basin by the Northern Prospector magazine. The Diabase Peninsula project was one of only two of 15 uranium projects that ranked in all seven "key criteria" used by the Northern Prospector to determine which projects are on target for a "super deposit find."

"This evaluation of drill programs in the Athabasca Basin by the Northern Prospector highlights all the reasons why Nuinsco chose Diabase Peninsula as its principal project for uranium exploration," said Paul Jones, Vice-President, Exploration. "While still at a grassroots stage, there's no question that Diabase is definitely in the right neighbourhood. The article correctly interprets that we are getting all the right indicators, and we will continue to systematically explore this highly prospective uranium project through 2007."

The Northern Prospector identified seven key criteria in evaluating a uranium prospect: proximity to an existing mine, depth to basement, faults/structure, proven graphitic conductors, alteration, zones of elevated uranium and uranium spikes near the unconformity. Nuinsco received good marks across the board, and was ranked first overall in the faults/structure category. According to the Northern Prospector: "Offset faults are a prime home for high-grade deposits. Drill results should confirm the existence of faulting and graphite. (Cameco's) McArthur River deposit is tucked within a 70 metre offset fault similar to the one interpreted at Nuinsco's Diabase Peninsula Project." The full article can be accessed at

About the Diabase Peninsula Property

The 21,900 hectare Diabase Peninsula Property encompasses coincident, highly prospective, alteration and geophysical signatures which are indicative of possible uranium mineralization. Located on the western shore of Cree Lake approximately five kilometres north of the southern boundary of the Athabasca Basin where sediment cover is relatively thin at 300 metres to 400 metres. The Diabase Peninsula property overlies the graphite-bearing Cable Bay Shear Zone which is considered to be an important potential host for uranium mineralization in this part of the Athabasca Basin.

Nuinsco is the operator, owns more than 50% of the Diabase Peninsula project, and is partnered with Trend Mining Company of Denver, Colorado (OTC:TRDM.OB). The project is being supervised by Paul Jones, V.P. Exploration for Nuinsco, who acts as QP under NI 43-101. Analysis of all samples was conducted by the Saskatchewan Research Council Analytical Laboratory in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.
