Strathmore Sells Certain Wyoming Uranium Mineral Leases to Peninsula Minerals

KELOWNA, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Aug. 25, 2009) - STRATHMORE MINERALS CORP. ("Strathmore" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:STM) announces that its wholly owned subsidiary Strathmore Resources (US) Ltd. has agreed to sell seven state uranium mineral leases, located in Crook County, Wyoming to Strata Energy Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Peninsula Minerals Limited of Australia. The leases, which comprise a total of 5,640 acres, were acquired by Strathmore in 2004. The state leases represent assets found outside Strathmore's core Gas Hills uranium development project. Peninsula is developing their Lance Project near Oshoto in northeastern Wyoming, and the acquired leases enable that company to consolidate its land position in the area.

Strathmore will receive 5,000,000 common shares of Peninsula for the properties. In addition, Strathmore will retain a royalty. Peninsula will have the option to purchase the Strathmore royalty in part or in whole for a period of 3 years. In order to comply with state title transfer procedures, the transaction is expected to close by December 31st, subject to regulatory approvals.

Strathmore holds a diverse uranium property portfolio in Wyoming and New Mexico. The Company is continuing to evaluate alternatives for its non-core properties. A list of all Strathmore's uranium properties and resources can be found on the Company's website
