First uranium exploration permit granted in Spain



    VANCOUVER, Sept. 11 /CNW/ - Mawson Resources Limited ("Mawson") TSX -
MAW; Frankfurt - MRY. Mr. Michael Hudson, President & CEO, announces that the
Caceres Oeste No. 10195 investigation permit for "Section D" (energy minerals
including uranium) has been granted ("Otorgamiento"). The claim lies in the
Extremadura province of western Spain and is the first to be granted of the
Company's 11 uranium investigation permits which cover 82,056 hectares.
    Mr Hudson comments: "Granting of the first investigation permit is a
significant milestone for Mawson in Spain. Other investigation permits are
progressing to granting through the relevant provincial authorities, 9 having
attained definitive admission ("Admisisn Definitiva"), the final stage of
permitting before granting. We look forward to immediately advancing our
exploration activities in Spain."
    An airborne radiometric survey is planned to cover Mawson's permit
applications in Spain during October 2008.
    The Caceres Oeste permit covers an airborne radiometric (uranium
high/thorium low) anomaly that extends over a distance of 25 kilometres on the
western contact zone between a granite and shale metasediments. Historic
exploration focussed on the eastern flank of the granite and located uranium
mineralization outside of Mawson's claim (Figure 1).
    The qualified person for the Mawson's Spanish projects, Mark Saxon,
director and vice-president of exploration for Mawson, and a member of the
Australasian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy, has reviewed and verified the
contents of this release.

    About the Company: Mawson Resources holds significant uranium resources
in the nuclear energy reliant countries of Spain, Sweden and Finland. As the
European Union reduces its reliance on carbon-based energy sources, Mawson is
well placed as the Company develops its exploration portfolio towards the
sustainable production of uranium in the shortest possible time frame.
