    SASKATOON, Jan. 18 /CNW/ - JNR Resources Inc. (TSXV:JNN) (the 'Company')
is pleased to announce that the 2008 winter exploration programs are underway
on the Company's 100% owned uranium projects, located in the Athabasca Basin
of northern Saskatchewan. The Company has budgeted $3.0 million to carry out
15,000 metres of diamond drilling on the Yurchison Lake, Black Lake, Newnham
Lake and Way Lake projects.
    The required permits are in place and mobilization of the drills and crew
to a camp on the Yurchison Lake project is well underway. To facilitate the
drilling program, the Company purchased two Heliportable Diamond Drills
(Reference: October 30, 2007 news release) and entered into an agreement with
Dynamic Drilling Inc. of Saskatoon to operate the drills and provide the
crews.
    The Yurchison Lake property is located along Highway No.905,
100 kilometres south of the Rabbit Lake uranium mine and mill. It consists of
four mineral claims totalling 12,660 hectares. Some 20 to 25 holes
(3,500 metres) are planned to test a multitude of well-defined electromagnetic
(EM) conductors, some of which correlate with geophysically interpreted
structural features. Prospecting programs on the property over the past two
summers identified significant uranium and molybdenum mineralization in both
outcrop and float samples, including uranium values of up to 0.30% U(3)O8.
    Upon completion of the program at Yurchison Lake, the drills and crew
will mobilize to Black Lake. Twelve holes (5,000 metres) are planned to target
EM conductors associated with a minimum 40-kilometre long fault zone, which
represents the northern strike extension of the Virgin River shear (Centennial
Zone). The Black Lake property is located on the north rim of the Athabasca
Basin, approximately 20 kilometres southeast of the town of Stony Rapids, and
lies along the seasonal road to that community. It consists of 10 mineral
claims totalling 41,783 hectares.
    Drilling at Newnham Lake and Way Lake will be scheduled as the season
progresses. Total metreage allocation to each project will in part be results
driven.
