- Infill drilling (Detail 4 and 6 Areas) - Pre mining pit definition drilling (Details 1 and 2)

PERTH, WESTERN AUSTRALIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 1, 2009) - Paladin Energy Ltd ("Paladin" or "the Company") (TSX:PDN)(ASX:PDN) is pleased to announce exploration drilling results from its infill and resource definition programme at the Langer Heinrich Mine in Namibia.

Recent exploration drilling in the area of Detail 4 in the far west of Mining Lease ML140 has intersected significant thicknesses and grades of mineralisation confirming the value of this area. Previous wide spaced drilling in this area by Gencor in the early 1980's had only intersected limited mineralisation. To date there have been 270 holes drilled for a total of 6,080m within Details 4 and Detail 6, immediately to the west of Detail 4. Intersections of 8m @ 967ppm eU3O8, 7m @ 1,527ppm eU3O8 and 8m @ 832ppm eU3O8 have been recorded and are shown on the plan below. It is expected that drilling results from this area will be incorporated into an updated Mineral Resource to be completed late in the December 2009 Quarter.

Infill drilling ahead of mining in the areas of Detail 1 and Detail 2 has also returned appreciable thicknesses and grades of mineralisation. This information is used to better define the limits of the current pit design to capture additional ore and limit the volumes of waste removed. In the area of Detail 2 this is particularly important as it will allow for the most efficient conversion of the pit voids to tailings storage.
