CanAlaska's New Saskatchewan Office and Regional Manager



    VANCOUVER, June 11 /CNW/ - CanAlaska Uranium Ltd. (CVV - TSX.V) (the
"Company") is pleased to announce the appointment of Mr. Tom Lewis, P. Eng, as
Regional Operations Manager in charge of operations and exploration at
CanAlaska's new regional office in Saskatoon. CanAlaska currently has over 90
staff working on field operations in Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba.
    Tom possesses extensive experience across the breadth of the Canadian
minerals industry, both in mineral exploration and mine development, and also
in First Nations and community relations. Tom was most recently Exploration
Manager for Anglo American Exploration Canada responsible for all Canadian
exploration. From 1999 to 2004, he was Chief Exploration Geologist for the
Central District for Hudson Bay Exploration Co. Ltd. based in Flin Flon,
Manitoba. From 1987-1999, Tom was District Geologist for Placer Dome based in
Thunder Bay and Timmins, Ontario. While with Placer Dome, Tom was the Senior
Project Manager responsible for the Pre-Feasibility Study at the Musselwhite
Gold Project.
    Dr Karl Schimann commented, "Tom and I are very excited about the
possibilities for uranium discoveries in the Athabasca Basin. CanAlaska's
dominant land position in areas of very high prospectivity, our very active
exploration programs, together with prominent international strategic
partnerships, has meant the rapid growth of the company. We are now going to
have a major exploration office and presence in Saskatoon, and Tom is exactly
the man who knows the scope of work we are heading into, and who is capable of
leading this regional team."
    President Peter Dasler and Tom Lewis are happy to be working together
again as a team on CanAlaska's uranium projects in the highly strategic
Athabasca Basin. Peter's comment was "We were lucky enough to be on the team
which found a mine the first time we worked together thirty years ago, and
now, it's time to build a new team to find a few more."
    Tom Lewis can be contacted at CanAlaska's Saskatoon Office, and at
tomlewis@canalaska.com. He welcomes old friends and new exploration recruits
to visit him and to become better acquainted with the company and its new
surroundings.

    About CanAlaska Uranium Ltd. -- www.canalaska.com

    CanAlaska Uranium (CVV -- TSX.V, CVVUF -- OTCBB, DH7 -- Frankfurt) is
undertaking uranium exploration on 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). In
2005/2006, CanAlaska expended over Cdn$15 million exploring its properties in
the Athabasca Basin and has delineated multiple uranium targets. Initial
drilling results from the West McArthur Project (now under an earn-in option
to Mitsubishi Development Pty. Ltd.) revealed uranium mineralization and
significant zones of hydrothermal alteration, indicative of a favorable
environment for uranium deposition. In January 2007 the company commenced
drill programs on five projects. Drill programs will continue through the
summer months, along with surface exploration and mapping programs.
