NWT Uranium responds to unsolicited takeover bid



    TORONTO, Dec. 17 /CNW/ - NWT Uranium Corp. (TSX-V: NWT; OTCBB: NWURF)
today announced that it has received an unsolicited proposal from a third
party to enter into a transaction pursuant to which that third party would
acquire all of NWT's outstanding shares for consideration consisting of
securities of that third party.
    The Board of Directors of NWT have determined, after review, that the
acquisition proposal is unlikely to result in a transaction that is more
favorable to NWT's share holders, from a financial point of view, than the
previously announced transaction with Nu-Mex Uranium Corp. The board has
advised the third party that it does not intend to enter into negotiations
concerning the acquisition proposal.
