    "The high grade intercepts reported throughout the year have demonstrated
the potential to increase the reserve grade at the Seabee Mine," stated Philip
Ng, Vice President, Mining Operations. "These results should positively impact
full year 2009 production by providing multiple mining areas for extraction at
the Seabee Mine."
    During 2009, Claude continues to produce from its satellite deposit at
Santoy 7 as well as the Seabee Mine. In addition, the Company is proceeding
with an underground bulk sample program at Porky West and pending
environmental approval and permits, to move Santoy 8 towards commercial
production. For 2009, approximately 35,000 meters of surface and underground
diamond drilling is planned at Seabee and its satellite deposits.

    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. Philip Ng, P.Eng, Vice
President, Mining Operations and Brian Skanderbeg, P.Geo., Vice President,
Exploration, Qualified Persons, have reviewed the contents of this news
release for accuracy.
