VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Aug. 13, 2007) - Strathmore Minerals Corp. ("Strathmore") (TSX VENTURE:STM) is pleased to announce it has completed a formal Joint Venture Agreement with Yellowcake Mining Inc. ("Yellowcake") to finance the development of Strathmore's Sky ISR uranium project located in the Gas Hills Uranium District in Fremont County, Wyoming. The JV agreement includes revised expenditure requirements from terms disclosed in Strathmore's news release dated April 10, 2007.

Sky is Strathmore's first project in Wyoming to begin data collection activities for permitting purposes. The intent is to develop the Sky project as a satellite ISR operation. The property comprises 50 unpatented mining claims totaling 418 hectares (1,033 acres).

Yellowcake will provide up to $US 7,500,000 in development expenditures over four years to earn a 60% interest in the project. Yellowcake will be obligated to spend $500,000 in the first year, $2,000,000 in the second year, $2,000,000 in the third year, and $3,000,000 in the fourth year of the agreement. Yellowcake will have earned 25% once they have spent $2,500,000, with the balance of $5,000,000 expenditure amounts earning the additional 35%. Strathmore will be the operator until Yellowcake has earned in its 60% interest. In addition, Strathmore retains the right to earn back 11% of the project by paying $7,500,000 to Yellowcake within 90 days of the completion of a bankable feasibility study.
