VANCOUVER, June 10 /CNW/ - CanAlaska Uranium Ltd. (TSX.V - CVV)
("CanAlaska" or the "Company") is pleased to announce Glass Earth Gold Ltd. as
a new exploration partner for its Rise and Shine gold project in Otago, New
CanAlaska's New Zealand subsidiary, Golden Fern Resources Ltd, the
pending holder under joint venture of the mineral licence covering the Rise
and Shine shear zone, located north of Cromwell, New Zealand, has entered into
an option agreement for the sale of a 70% ownership interest in Golden Fern in
return for detailed project evaluation and exploration on the Rise and Shine
project, including 4,000 metres of drill testing on favourable gold targets.
Additional terms of the agreement include progressive cash payments of $13,000
and the issuance of 200,000 shares in Glass Earth Ltd. to the Company over the
course of the program.
President Peter Dasler commented, "the historic New Zealand gold rushes
provided ample evidence of extensive gold mineralizing systems throughout the
country. Modern gold mines in New Zealand are capitalizing on discoveries on
unexplored ground, and CanAlaska's New Zealand property holdings cover
significant areas of historic gold-producing camps. The Company had previously
established operating partners for the Reefton gold project and, now, the
highly prospective Rise and Shine property so as to allow CanAlaska to advance
Rise and Shine and to concentrate more closely on its uranium exploration
activities in Canada's Athabasca Basin".
