Ressources Appalaches: Extension of the Uranium Zone on the Ashini Property

RIMOUSKI, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - July 10, 2007) - Appalaches Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:APP)

The latest trenching and ground radiometric survey work carried out at the Ashini uranium property on Quebec's North Shore has so far indicated a radioactive zone about half a kilometre long and 350 metres wide. The radioactivity is produced by outcrops of a complex system of discontinuous and irregular pegmatitic veins. The radiometric survey is now being extended to define the limits of the radioactive zone, and several samples are currently being analyzed to determine the uranium content of these outcrops.

The radioactive zone is characterized by a number of outcrops with counts per second (cps) above 1,000-even reaching 10,000 cps-in pegmatite veins throughout the zone. Nine excavator trenches have exposed semi-continuous radioactivity over lengths of 30 to 60 metres, open at the ends.

In addition, extension of the 2006 trenches has enabled sampling of three new pegmatite veins with radioactivities in excess of 10,000 cps. By way of example, a sample taken last year with 0.22% uranium had a radioactivity of 8,000 cps.

The Ashini property is 100% owned by Ressources Appalaches; it is located near the town of Godbout on the Quebec North Shore. The radiometric surveys were conducted with an Exploranium GR310 spectrometer.
