BOCA RATON, FL, Jan. 24 /CNW/ - Multi-Media Productions (USA), Inc.
announces that CanAlaska Uranium will be featured on 21st Century Business,
hosted by General Alexander Haig.
In response to global uncertainties regarding the supply of crude oil as
a clean energy alternative, nuclear power is fast emerging as a primary source
of energy. On this segment of 21st Century Business, Peter Dasler, President &
CEO of CanAlaska Uranium Limited, and Emil Fung, Vice President of Corporate
Development discuss this growing concern.
Peter Dasler states: "CanAlaska Uranium's mission is to discover one or
more world-scale deposits to meet the significant emerging global demand for
uranium. We have assembled a highly-experienced uranium exploration team and a
large prospective property portfolio in northern Canada's Athabasca Basin,
supplier of 25% of the world's uranium and home to the world's richest uranium
deposits." Emil Fung added, "Our strategic vision and exploration expertise
has been recognized by major international conglomerates such as Mitsubishi
Development Pty., and a Korean Consortium comprising Hanwha Corp., Korea
Electric Power Corp., Korea Resources Corp. and SK Energy Co. Ltd. Together
with other exploration partners, CanAlaska has received over $40 mil. in
financial commitments towards exploration of its project portfolio in the
Athabasca Basin - a region commonly recognized for its global energy
significance as the Saudi Arabia of Uranium."
Vice President of Programming for Multi Media Productions (USA), Inc., JL
Haber, added, "As the demand for clean energy alternatives grows, both
internationally and domestically, CanAlaska Uranium Limited has positioned
itself to meet this ever increasing demand. We are excited to have them as a
guest on our program."
About CanAlaska Uranium
CANALASKA URANIUM LTD. (CVV - TSX.V, CVVUF - OTCBB, DH7 - Frankfurt) is
undertaking uranium exploration in seventeen 100%-owned and two optioned
uranium projects in Canada's Athabasca Basin. Since September 2004, the
Company has aggressively acquired one of the largest land positions in the
region, comprising over 2,500,000 acres (10,117 sq. km or 3,906 sq. miles).
CanAlaska has expended over Cdn$24 million exploring its properties in the
Athabasca Basin and has delineated multiple uranium targets. Initial drilling
results from the West McArthur Project revealed uranium mineralization and
significant zones of hydrothermal alteration, indicative of a favourable
environment for uranium deposition. Active drilling and exploration has
continued through the Summer, and Fall 2007 seasons at West McArthur and at 2
other significant projects. The Company's high profile in the prominent
Athabasca Basin has attracted the attention of major international strategic
partners. Among others, Mitsubishi Development Pty., a subsidiary of Japanese
conglomerate Mitsubishi Corporation, has undertaken to provide CanAlaska
C$11 mil. in exploration funding to earn 50% of the West McArthur Project. In
addition, exploration of CanAlaska's Cree East Project has commenced under a
C$19 mil. agreement executed with a consortium led by Hanwha Corporation, and
comprising Korea Electric Power Corp., Korea Resources Corp. and SK Energy Co,
