Tribune Commences Exploration at North Shore Project, Athabasca Basin

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - March 25, 2008) - Tribune Uranium Corp. (TSX VENTURE:TCB)(FRANKFURT:S8QA) ("Tribune") (the "Company") and its partner, Fission Energy Corp., are pleased to announce that exploration at the North Shore Uranium Project, located in northeastern Alberta, is underway. The 2008 exploration program includes a 700 line-kilometre VTEM Airborne Geophysical Survey and a 1000 metre drill program designed to test several coincident geophysical - geochemical uranium targets at Grey Willow Point and Falling Sand Point, located near the Alberta-Saskatchewan border.

The North Shore Uranium Project comprises thirteen permits totaling approximately 113,249 hectares and is located approximately 15 km west of Fort Chipewyan. The property is situated along the northwest edge of the Athabasca Basin, within 10 km west of Cameco's Maurice Bay Uranium Deposit. The property boundary extends along the north shore of Lake Athabasca to the Alberta-Saskatchewan border.

Historic exploration included the identification of two significant areas exhibiting anomalous alteration and radioactivity, located less than 20 km southwest of the Maurice Bay Uranium Deposit; one at Grey Willow Point and one at Falling Sand Point. Prior work on the property included:

- Completion of over 150 shallow drill holes with an average depth of less than 30 m;

- Identification of over 200 uraniferous boulders with up to 0.95% U3O8;

- Airborne Magnetic - VLF - Radiometric Surveys.

Shallow drill testing at Grey Willow Point and Falling Sands Point previously identified anomalous radioactivity associated with zones of intense alteration. Within the area the sub-Athabasca Unconformity is either eroded, or at depths of less than 30 m.

The exploration model expected on the North Shore property is analogous to basement hosted structurally controlled uranium mineralization, similar to the Beaver Lodge area. This style of mineralization is controlled by structures and shear zones, and would likely be associated with structurally focused hydrothermal alteration systems. It is further postulated that uranium mineralization within the area is related to the inferred southwest extension of the McKenzie Mylonite Zone, host to Cameco's Maurice Bay Uranium Deposit.

The Company previously completed an 8,039 line-km airborne magnetic and VLF survey, which identified hundreds of EM responses interpreted to be possible basement structures coincident with known uranium mineralization. The follow-up 700 line-km, 100 m and 200 m line spacing VTEM airborne magnetic and EM survey is being completed by Geotech Ltd. of Aurora. The survey will provide high resolution magnetic and EM data that will be integrated to assist with target selection for the upcoming 1,000 m drill program. Drill targets at Grey Willow Point and Falling Sand Point include cross-cutting structures with anomalous radioactivity and alteration. These targets were never previously tested at depth.

Upon completion of the drill program, each bore hole will first be logged with a Mount Sopris 2PGA-1000 poly gamma probe. All drill core will be geologically logged, systematically sampled for geochemical and clay analysis and forwarded to the SRC Analytical Laboratories in Saskatoon for further analysis. In addition, samples will also be collected for short wave infra-red spectrometry (PIMA) analysis. Results will be provided when available.
