    Vice-President, Mining Operations, Philip Ng, P.Eng., stated that, "These
results being reported today extend the high grade gold mineralization at
Seabee Deep and represent a very positive start to our 2009 exploration
programs at our Seabee and Madsen properties. In addition, the close proximity
of this discovery to existing development means that it will positively impact
head grade delivered to our central milling facility at the Seabee Mining Camp
during 2009."
    In 2009, Claude Resources Inc. forecasts to produce from its satellite
deposit at Santoy 7 as well as the Seabee Mine. In addition, the Company plans
on continuing with an underground bulk sample program at Porky West and
pending environmental approval and permits, to move Santoy 8 towards
commercial production.
    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. Brian Skanderbeg, P.Geo.,
Vice President Exploration, Qualified Person, has reviewed the contents of
this news release for accuracy.
