Powertech Resubmits Dewey-Burdock NRC License Application

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Aug. 12, 2009) - POWERTECH URANIUM CORP. ("Powertech" or the "Company") (TSX:PWE)(FRANKFURT:P8A) is pleased to announce today that it has resubmitted its in situ leach application to the U. S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission ("NRC") for a uranium recovery license for its Dewey-Burdock Project in Custer and Fall River Counties, South Dakota. The Company, as noted in its June 16th, 2009 press release, voluntarily withdrew its application to provide the NRC with some additional information in order to assist NRC Staff in completing its acceptance review.

The original NRC application submitted on February 26, 2009 was the culmination of two years of concerted effort in gathering baseline data to establish background environmental conditions at its Dewey-Burdock Project. The Company expects that these additional data presentations will facilitate the review by the NRC technical staff and keep the Company's application moving forward toward final approval and issuance of a license.

Richard Clement, Powertech President and CEO, said "The Company is pleased with the completion and the resubmission of the NRC application. We look forward to proceeding with the review process and will continue to interact closely with all the regulatory agencies."

This news release has been reviewed and approved by Mr. Clement, President and CEO of Powertech, under whose direction the Company's operations are being carried out. Mr. Clement, P.G., MSc., is a Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101.
