U3O8 Corp. Provides Exploration Drilling Update

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Sept. 6, 2007) - U3O8 Corp. (TSX VENTURE:UWE) ("Company") announces details of Phase II drilling in the Aricheng area, located in Permit A, Guyana South America. Initial drilling has started at Aricheng North and will proceed to Aricheng South and Aricheng West. These three areas have been prioritized for follow-up drilling based on results from the Phase I drilling program in combination with the interpretation of the limited historical data set. Significant downhole results from the completed Phase I drilling program in the Aricheng North area include:

- 7.5 meters at 0.13% U3O8 in hole ARN-002

- 11.0 meters at 0.233% U3O8 in hole ARN-003

- 9.0 meters at 0.221% U3O8 in hole ARN-006.

Complete results are available on SEDAR and have been detailed in previous press releases dated May 9, 2007 and June 19, 2007. Basement related uranium mineralization in the Aricheng area is hosted in a northwest trending shear zone in granodiorite.

Phase II drilling at Aricheng North will consist of 17 holes for a total of approximately 2,140 meters and will concentrate on extending mineralization along strike and at depth in two zones identified from Phase I drilling. Once drilling is complete at Aricheng North, the drill rig will be moved to Aricheng South and Aricheng West where a minimum combined total of 2,280 meters in 19 holes will be drilled to test for mineralization along strike.

Assay results from the first zone at Aricheng North are expected to be available in October barring delays at the analytical laboratory.

The exploration focus to date has been on basement hosted uranium mineralization in the Kurupung Batholith (please see Figure 1: Kurupung Batholith Map). Approximately 35 km2 have been explored in the Aricheng area. There are 25 targets identified by the airborne radiometric survey that are hosted by the 360 km2 Kurupung Batholith.

Reconnaissance exploration is evaluating targets in the Kurupung Batholith outside of the Aricheng area. Currently, four geologists are conducting reconnaissance in the Accori - Meamu area northwest of Aricheng. A satellite camp has been established and ground scintillometer surveying and detailed mapping is currently underway. Upon completion of the Aricheng area drilling, a 2,000 meter drilling program is planned to drill test anomalies identified during the ongoing regional reconnaissance program.

"We are pleased with the exploration progress to date. Field activities are on schedule and budget. The exploration plan continues to confirm and enhance the partial historical data set that was availed to the company" said Allan Ibbitson President and C.E.O. "We are still in the early exploration stage in the course of better understanding uranium mineralization associated with the Kurupung Batholith."

The Company is well funded with over $25 million held solely in cash and Canadian chartered bank backed Guaranteed Investment Certificates.

About U3O8 Corp.

U3O8 Corp. is a Canadian junior mineral exploration company based in Toronto, Canada. Currently focused on uranium exploration in the Roraima Basin area of Guyana, South America, U3O8 Corp.'s primary business objective is to acquire, explore and develop uranium projects in the Americas. Under its current exploration schedule, the Company expects to be fully funded for the next three years.

The Company has exclusive uranium exploration rights in two permitted areas in the Roraima Basin area of Guyana. The Permit Area A property covers approximately 579,500 hectares. The Permit Area B property covers approximately 750,900 hectares. This latter area is of particular interest as it is geologically similar to the unconformity related uranium deposits in the Athabasca region in Saskatchewan.
