Rodinia Increases Inferred Resource at Workman Creek to
5.5 million lbs. U3O8
September 22, 2006
Vancouver, British Columbia… Rodinia Minerals Inc. (the “Company”) is pleased to announce that Gary Giroux, a Member of the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of the Province of British Columbia and a qualified person as defined by NI 43-101, has recalculated the resource estimate on the Company’s Workman Creek project, by refining the geological model used in the calculation. This has resulted in an increase of the inferred resource at a 0.05% cut off, from 2.35 million tons to 3.22 million tons and the resultant increase in U3O8 from 4,047,160 lbs. to 5,542,000 lbs. at the same average grade of 0.86%. It should be noted that the increase in poundage is also NI 43‑101 compliant.
The Company is also pleased to announce that it has contracted Coast Mountain Group Consultants to manage the next phase of the work program at Workman Creek. Coast Mountain have recommended a drill program of 78 reverse circulation holes in order to: confirm existing resource blocks; infill between existing holes in areas of mineralization; and step out from known mineralized areas to attempt to expand the resource. Based on positive results, Mr. Giroux states that “additional infill drill holes should bring a significant portion of the resource into the measured plus indicated status.” The Company is in the process of applying for drill permits.
Mr. Giroux is the Company’s qualified person on the project as required under NI 43‑101 and has reviewed the technical information contained in this press release.
