TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Oct. 31, 2006) -

NOT FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES OR THROUGH U.S. NEWSWIRE SERVICES

Purepoint Uranium Group Inc. (TSX VENTURE:PTU) has announced an agreement with a syndicate of agents led by Blackmont Capital and including Loewen, Ondaatje, McCutheon Limited to raise up to $3,500,000 by way of a marketed private placement of flow-through common shares ("Flow-Through Shares") at a price of $0.48 per Flow-Through Share and common share units ("Units") at a price of $0.44 per unit.

Each Unit will consist of one common share and one-half common share purchase warrant ("Warrant"), with each whole warrant entitling the holder to purchase one additional common share for a period of up to 18 months from closing at a price of $0.55 per common share.

"With the spot price of uranium reaching yet another major milestone this week of US $60.00 per lb. the sector continues to demonstrate unique support for the future" said Chris Frostad, President and CEO, Purepoint Uranium Group Inc.

The Agents will receive a cash fee equal to 8% of the gross proceeds raised from the placement, as well as broker's warrants, exercisable for a period of 18 months, to purchase a number of common shares equal to 10% of the number of Flow-Through Shares and Units issued in the offering.

Completion of the private placement is subject to certain conditions, including satisfactory due diligence by the Agents and receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals.

The net proceeds of this private placement will be used to further advance Purepoint's seven uranium exploration projects and for general capital purposes.

Purepoint Uranium Group Inc. is focused on the precision exploration of its seven, 100% owned, highly prospective projects in the Canadian Athabasca Basin. Established in the Basin well before the resurgence in uranium, Purepoint is actively advancing some of the hottest drill targets in the world's richest uranium region.
