"The gold intercepts reported here and earlier in the year have demonstrated the potential to increase the reserve grade and tonnage at the Seabee Mine," stated Philip Ng, Vice President, Mining Operations. "We continue to forecast gold production between 46,000-48,000 ounces for 2009."

In 2009, Claude Resources Inc. is producing from its satellite deposit at Santoy 7, a bulk sample program at Porky West as well as the Seabee Mine. In addition, the Company continues to work on seeking environmental approval and permits, to move Santoy 8 towards commercial production. For the full year 2009, approximately 35,000 meters of surface and underground diamond drilling was planned at Seabee and its satellite deposits.

Claude Resources Inc. is a public company based in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, whose shares trade on the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX-CRJ) and the NYSE Amex (NYSE Amex-CGR). Claude is a gold exploration and mining company with an asset base located entirely in Canada. Since 1991, Claude has produced approximately 865,000 ounces of gold from its Seabee mining operation in northeastern Saskatchewan. The Company also owns 100% of the 10,000 acre Madsen property in the prolific Red Lake gold camp of northwestern Ontario.

Samples were assayed by Claude Resources Inc.'s non-accredited assay lab at the Seabee mine site. Duplicate check assays were conducted at site as well as at TSL Laboratories in Saskatoon. Results of the spot checks were consistent with those reported. Sampling interval was established by minimum or maximum sampling lengths and geological and/or structural criteria. Minimum sampling length was 0.3 meters while the maximum was 1.0 meter. 200 gram samples were pulverized until greater than 80% passes through 200 mesh screen. 30 gram pulp samples were then analyzed for gold by fire assay with gravimetric finish (0.01 grams per tonne detection limit). A top cut of 50 grams per tonne was used to determine cut grades.
