Strathmore Completes NI 43-101 Technical Report for the Marquez Uranium Property, New Mexico
Mon Jun 21, 10:30 AM

ca.news.finance.yahoo.com

KELOWNA, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - June 21, 2010) - STRATHMORE MINERALS CORP. (TSX VENTURE: STM.V) ("Strathmore" or "the Company") is pleased to announce that its wholly owned subsidiary Strathmore Resources (US) Ltd has completed and SEDAR-filed an independent National Instrument 43-101 Technical Report for the Marquez Uranium Property in New Mexico. The Marquez Property, which comprises 14,501 acres, is located in the eastern part of the Grants Mineral Belt in Northwestern New Mexico. It was extensively explored with 384 drill holes completed during the 1970s, and was being developed as a full-scale underground uranium mine by Kerr McGee and the Tennessee Valley Authority, but later abandoned in the 1980s due to prolonged weak uranium prices. Strathmore acquired the Marquez Deposit in 2007.

The Marquez NI 43-101 report provides a Measured and Indicated resource estimate of 3,610,209 tons at an average grade of 0.126% eU3O8 for a total of 9,130,343 pounds. An additional 2,159,520 tons at an average grade of 0.114% eU3O8 for a total of 4,906,695 pounds is classified as an Inferred mineral resource. The following table highlights the quantity and grade for each mineral resource category:

Marquez Uranium Deposit: NI 43-101 Measured, Indicated & Inferred Resource Estimates

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Resource Tons Grade % Pounds Ave. Thickness Ave. GT
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Measured 998,625 0.126 2,512,301 11.16 1.41
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Indicated 2,611,584 0.127 6,618,042 11.28 1.43
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
TOTAL (M+I) 3,610,209 0.126 9,130,343 11.26 1.42
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Inferred 2,159,520 0.114 4,906,695 10.78 1.22
---------------------------------------------------------------------------


For the mineral resource estimates, polygons, which were centered on the drill holes, were constructed by using perpendicular bisectors halfway between adjacent drill holes (also called area of equal influence, "AOI"). Uranium content was previously calculated using industry standards from gamma-ray logs for each hole by converting counts per second to % eU3O8 (equivalent uranium). Thickness and grade of the mineralized intercepts were assigned to each polygon for determining tonnage, with an assumed tonnage of 15 cubic feet per ton. The AOI of each polygon was limited either by the position of adjoining drill holes, the property boundary, and/or the maximum capped size of the measured (100ft x 100ft), indicated (200ft x 200ft), or inferred (400ft x 400ft) resource categories.

The Marquez technical report was prepared by M. Hassan Alief, Certified Professional Geologist (AIPG #11134), who is a qualified and independent person under National Instrument Policy 43-101. Mr. Alief has over 50 years of geology, mining and exploration experience, with over 28 years specifically toward uranium exploration and development in New Mexico, Texas, Wyoming and other parts of the USA. In the 1970s and 1980s, Mr. Alief served as Chief Geologist at the Mt. Taylor Uranium Mine, located 20 miles west of the Marquez Deposit.

In the technical report, Mr. Alief writes:

"After reviewing the data, reports, cross-sections and other chemical and radiometric data, the author concludes that Kerr McGee had done a professional job in their exploration/development drilling and resource estimations. The new resource estimates generated by Strathmore's geologists are reliable and representative of the Marquez deposit. It is also concluded that there may be some further potential adjacent to outlined mineralized areas. The potential for positive disequilibrium of the Marquez deposit was also addressed by Kerr McGee. These disequilibrium studies ranged from 1.17-1.58 positive disequilibrium; suggesting that more uranium may be present within the Marquez deposit than estimated by Kerr McGee and Strathmore (this report)."

The completion of the Marquez NI-43-101 resource estimate, in addition to the recent closing of the Pine Tree Reno Creek sale, reaffirms the high quality of Strathmore's uranium development property portfolio.

David Miller, Strathmore's CEO, noted, "Strathmore is fortunate to possess an extensive and diverse inventory of uranium properties that, perhaps, may represent flagship projects to many other companies. The Company is committed to advancing its core Roca Honda and Gas Hills uranium development projects, but will continue with its plan to monetize or joint venture non-core properties."

Additional information on Strathmore's New Mexico and Wyoming uranium properties can be obtained by visiting the Company's website at: strathmoreminerals.com

The NI 43-101 technical report for the Marquez Property can be viewed in its entirety on the SEDAR website www.sedar.com and the Company's website www.strathmoreminerals.com.

The foregoing historical resource estimates were completed prior to the implementation of the NI 43- 101 requirements. Given the quality of the historic work completed by Kerr McGee on the Marquez Property discussed herein, the Company believes the resource estimates to be both relevant and reliable. However, a qualified person has not completed sufficient work to classify the historic mineral resources as current mineral resource, and is not treating the historic resources as current. Hence, they should not be relied upon. The technical information in this news release has been prepared in accordance with the Canadian regulatory requirements set out in National Instrument 43- 101 and reviewed by David Miller, Chief Executive Officer for Strathmore Minerals Corp., a qualified person under National Instrument 43-101. It should be noted that mineral resources which are not mineral reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability as defined by the NI 43-101 guidelines.

STRATHMORE MINERALS CORP. is a Canadian based resource company specializing in the strategic acquisition, exploration and development of uranium properties. Headquartered in Kelowna, British Columbia, the Company also has U.S. based Development offices in Riverton, Wyoming and Santa Fe, New Mexico. STRATHMORE MINERALS CORP.

Strathmore to Review Alternatives at Church Rock, New Mexico
Tue Jul 6, 9:30 AM

ca.news.finance.yahoo.com

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - July 6, 2010) - STRATHMORE MINERALS CORP. (TSX VENTURE: STM.V) ("Strathmore" or "the Company") announces that in light of the recent US Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals ruling in favour of Uranium Resources' ("URI") Church Rock project, the Company is re-examining its alternatives for its 100% owned adjoining property, also known as Church Rock. The court ruling determined that Section 8 of URI's Church Rock Property is not "Indian Country", and that the In-Situ Recovery (ISR) Underground Injection Control Permit granted by the New Mexico Environment Department is valid. If no appeal to the Supreme Court is lodged, advancement of the project to the production stage can proceed.

David Miller, Strathmore's CEO, noted, "This favourable ruling is significant to Strathmore and our nearby Church Rock uranium project. Strathmore will continue to monitor URI's progress as a result of this new ruling, which represents a positive step forward to the eventual revitalization of the Grant's District. We have since advanced our Roca Honda project, which will remain our main focus in New Mexico."

Strathmore's adjoining 640 acre Church Rock Property was acquired from Rio Algom Corporation, successor to the Kerr McGee Nuclear Corporation, in 2004. By the mid-1980s, Kerr McGee had completed over 300,000 feet of drilling and had initiated plans to develop the project as a conventional underground mine. The project was later abandoned due to a prolonged weak uranium price.

In December 2005, Strathmore completed a NI 43-101 Measured and Indicated resource estimate of 6,221,467 tons at an average grade of 0.10% U3O8 for a total of 11,848,007 pounds. An additional 1,950,560 tons averaging 0.090% U3O8 for a total of 3,525,342 lbs has been classified as an Inferred mineral resource (see Table 1). This property is not encumbered by production royalties. Strathmore initiated permitting in 2005, and began studies to determine if uranium extraction was amenable to ISR methods. Work was subsequently abandoned when litigation challenging URI's plans to advance the neighbouring project ensued.

Church Rock represents an extremely valuable uranium asset in the Company's long-term project pipeline. However, given this important recent development, Strathmore will revisit this project by conducting an internal review to determine how best to enhance shareholder value.

Strathmore sees plenty more potential at Roca Honda
by Karl Loomes

proactiveinvestors.com

At their Annual General Meeting (AGM) last week, Strathmore Minerals Corp (TSX: STM, OTC: STHJF) confirmed the latest N 43-101 compliant resource update for their flagship Roca Honda Uranium Project, based on data collected since May 2008.

The report includes updates for extensive permitting activities, and details on the commencement of a phased feasibility study. In addition, the report confirmed mineral resource figures previously collected and concluded that “there is very good potential to drill additional uranium mineralisation”, a further signal the Strathmore are on good course to develop one of the best and highest grade uranium deposits in the United States.

Strathmore Minerals is a Canadian based resource company, specialising in the development of uranium deposits in the United States, often through a joint venture partner. The company has market capitalisation of C$49.2 million, with C$10.5 million in cash and with C$9.1 million in working capital. The company’s key assets include their two primary uranium deposits; Roca Honda and Gas Hills, as well as nine other projects spread throughout the United States, with a combines total NI 43-101 compliant resource estimate of 36.2 million pounds of measured and indicated resource, and 21.4 million of inferred resource.

The Roca Honda Uranium Project is a joint venture between Strathmore (60%) and Sumitomo (40%), located in McKinley County, in the Grants Mineral Belt of North West New Mexico. The property is around 16 miles northeast of Grants, and 23 miles away from Milan, New Mexico, via the New Mexico Highway 605. In addition to this paved highway, ranch and dirt roads offer access across the property, although because of disuse, most of these require 4-wheel drive at the moment, and will need some maintenance going forward. The project is seen as a “company maker” my Strathmore, suggesting it has the potential to be “one of the largest and highest grade proposed uranium mines in US in over 30 years”. The property totals 1,840 acres and consists of 63 unpatented mining claims totalling approximately 1,200 acres, and an adjoining New Mexico State General Mining lease totalling 640 acres.

The uranium mineralization occurs as uranium – humate – cemented sandstone, are irregular in shape and range from a few feet in width and length to bodies several tens or hundreds of feet long. The latest NI 43-101 resource estimate on the property has confirmed the historical numbers for Section 9 and Section 10 of the property, which were compiled by the previous owners Kerr – McGee, and updated by its successor, Rio Algom in 1995. For Sections 9 and 10, considering a cut off GT (i.e. grade multiplied by minimum depth) of 0.6 (0.1% triuranium octoxide x 6 feet), the report shows a measured resource of 1.3 million tonnes, grading 0.23% triuranium octoxide (U3O8), for a resource of over 6 million pounds of U3O8. The report showed an indicated resource of 2.5 million tonnes grading 0.23% U3O8, for an indicated resource of 11.5 million pounds of U3O8. In addition to this, and again considering a cut off GT of 0.6, the report showed an inferred resource of 4.5 million tonnes grading 0.17% U3O8, for a resource of 15.8 million pounds of U3O8.

Kerr-McGee had previous compiled reserve estimates for Section 16 of the property, although this could not be confirmed as NI 43-101 compliant due to the lack of necessary documentation, the author of the latest report did not that in his opinion, the resource estimate for Section 16 could in fact double. The original estimates showed 197,000 tonnes of resource in the section, at an average grade of 0.23% U3O8, for a total of 886,621 pounds U3O8. Prior to entering the joint venture with Strathmore, Sumitomo also independently prepared a resource estimate of the Roca Honda property, using geostatistical mining software. Again this is not considered NI 43-101 compliant. Considering a cut off GT of 0.6, this estimate showed a total of 7.4 million tonnes of resource, averaging a grade 0.25% U3O8, for a contained total of 36.2 million pounds of U3O8.

During the first quarter of this year, Strathmore underwent costs of around C$408,000 at the Roca Honda property, the majority of which was on the feasibility study (C$132,000) and permits and regulatory requirements (C$105,000). To date, the company has spent around C$12.4 million on exploration costs for the property. This latest report suggests that Phase 1 or the recommended continued exploration and development of the property will cost in the region of U$2.7 million (US$2.6 million) over the next 12 months.

Going forward, Strathmore have contracted SWRP to prepare a phased feasibility study, which will include a mineral reserve estimate or a revised mineral resource estimate using underground mining methods. The results of this report are expected in August 2011. This study will consider revising the current mineral resource estimate, and will require using cut off factors not only as before, but also with an additional cut off levels of a minimum mining thickness of 6 feet, and an increase in the lower grade cut off to reflect estimated underground mining costs.

This latest report shows the potential for the Roca Honda Project and the added value it could bring to Strathmore as exploration and development continues. With the phased feasibility study underway, as well as ongoing exploration activities to extend current resource estimates, there is a lot of potential for buoyant newsflow for Strathmore over the next year or so.
