Vice-President, Mining Operations, Philip Ng, P.Eng., stated that, "These results being reported today extend the high grade gold mineralization at Seabee Deep and represent a very positive start to our 2009 exploration programs at our Seabee and Madsen properties. In addition, the close proximity of this discovery to existing development means that it will positively impact head grade delivered to our central milling facility at the Seabee Mining Camp during 2009."

In 2009, Claude Resources Inc. forecasts to produce from its satellite deposit at Santoy 7 as well as the Seabee Mine. In addition, the Company plans on continuing with an underground bulk sample program at Porky West and pending environmental approval and permits, to move Santoy 8 towards commercial production.

Samples were assayed by Claude Resources Inc.'s non-accredited assay lab at the Seabee mine site. Duplicate check assays were conducted at site as well as at TSL Laboratories in Saskatoon. Results of the spot checks were consistent with those reported. Sampling interval was established by minimum or maximum sampling lengths and geological and/or structural criteria. Minimum sampling length was 0.3 meters while the maximum was 1.0 meter. 200 gram samples were pulverized until greater than 80% passes through 200 mesh screen. 30 gram pulp samples were then analyzed for gold by fire assay with gravimetric finish (0.01 grams per tonne detection limit). A top cut of 50 grams per tonne was used to determine cut grades. Brian Skanderbeg, P.Geo., Vice President Exploration, Qualified Person, has reviewed the contents of this news release for accuracy.
