Yellowcake Mining to Finance the Development of Strathmore's Sky, Wyoming ISR Uranium Project

KELOWNA, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - April 10, 2007) - STRATHMORE MINERALS CORP. ("Strathmore") (TSX VENTURE:STM) is pleased to announce it has entered into a letter of intent with Yellowcake Mining Inc. ("Yellowcake") to finance the development of Strathmore's Sky project located in the Gas Hills Uranium District in Fremont County, Wyoming. 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.

Mr. Dev Randhawa, Chairman and CEO of Strathmore, commented, "We are pleased to work with Yellowcake on this project as it will enable us to more quickly advance a number of our uranium projects outside our core production areas."

In conjunction with the initiation of permit activities, the Company recently completed an independent National Instrument 43-101 technical report for the SKY property. The 43-101 report provides an Indicated mineral resource estimate totaling 948,098 lbs. U3O8 contained within 668,688 tons at an average grade of 0.07%. An additional 54,496 lbs U3O8 have been classified as an inferred mineral resource. See Strathmore's February 28, 2007 news release for additional information on the project. The 43-101 technical report for the SKY property can be viewed in its entirety on the SEDAR website www.sedar.com and the Company's website www.strathmoreminerals.com.

Bill Tafuri, Yellowcake Board Member, said, "The Company views the Sky JV as a vehicle for achieving uranium production in the near-term. We are pleased to continue the expansion of our uranium projects and to build upon the excellent working relationship we have with Strathmore. We look forward to working closely on the development of the Sky project." Yellowcake (OTCBB:YCKM) is a Nevada based company with a mandate to develop uranium projects.
