Perth, Aug 28, 2008 AEST (ABN Newswire) - Crossland Uranium Mines Ltd (ASX:CUX) is pleased to announce initial assay results from outcrop chip samples collected in June, 2008 at the Charley Creek project in the Northern Territory of Australia.

HIGHLIGHTS

- The initial rock chip results confirm that encouraging uranium values are present in outcrop in association with the surface radiometric anomalies in a particular phase of the Teapot Granite which outcrops over an area of several square kilometres.

- Crossland believes that these characteristics enhance the potential for a large primary uranium deposit within Crossland's tenements over the Teapot Granite at Charley Creek.

- Ground spectrometer survey work will continue over anomalous areas identified from airborne work, in parallel with further prospecting.

- Application will be made to drill-test the outcropping mineralisation.

The Charley Creek outcrop chip samples were collected to follow up radiometric anomalies delineated in Crossland's January, 2008 airborne radiometric survey. The airborne survey results indicated that high uranium radioactivity occurs over extensive areas of the Teapot Granite.

The follow- up chip sample results are summarized in the following table:

* 1ppm is 1 gram per tonne, and one pound is 453.6 grams. The conversion factor from uranium to U3O8 is 1.179.

The rock chip results reported represent all samples collected to date in the follow-up. These confirm that quite encouraging uranium values are present in outcrop in association with the surface radiometric anomalies. The prospecting work indicates that the elevated uranium values are associated with a particular phase of the Teapot Granite. In outcrop, this phase contains widespread visible secondary uranium mineral films on fracture surfaces. There is the possibility that the values reported above are enhanced by surface enrichment, and it will be possible to evaluate this when drilling is undertaken. The association of elevated uranium values with a particular granite phase which outcrops over an area of several square kilometres within Crossland's exploration titles also raises potential for the existence of a large deposit. The ground spectrometer survey will continue over anomalous areas identified from airborne work, in parallel with further prospecting. Application will be made to drill-test the outcropping mineralisation. Subject to completion of necessary permitting procedures, this work may be possible in early 2009, during the wet season in the north of Australia. The area has been designated the Cockroach Dam prospect, after a nearby watering point on the pastoral property that hosts the anomalies. The location of samples is indicated on the accompanying illustration.

In addition to the aforementioned chip samples, the results of multi-element analysis for 1185 samples collected from the May 2008 air core drilling into the shallow sedimentary basin, also at Charley Creek, have now been received. These are being reviewed and compiled along with down hole lithology and radiometrics, and results will be used to delineate targets for the next phase of air core drilling.

Results from the Kalabity auger drilling program, completed in March 2008, were received on August 14, and evaluation of these has begun.

The current focus of field work is on the joint venture's Chilling Project in the Northern Territory.
