    VANCOUVER, Dec. 6 /CNW Telbec/ - Atomic Minerals Ltd. (ATL: TSX-V) is
pleased to update its progress on its initial drill program on the Dolores
Anticline in Colorado. The Company commenced drilling hole SP9 on November 14,
2007. This hole encountered the Chinle Formation at 2100 feet. Hole SP1, on
the opposite flank of the Dolores Anticline, reached the Chinle Formation at
1560 feet. As reported in previous news releases, economically important
amounts of uranium have been produced from the Salt Wash Member of the
Morrison Formation of Late Jurassic Age, and the Moss Back Member of the Late
Triassic Chinle Formation in and near the Uravan Mineral Belt in San Miguel,
Montrose and Dolores Counties, Colorado (United States Geological Survey 1968,
Daniel R. Shawe, Denver, Colorado).
    Atomic's drill contractors intend to continue working their way across
the Dolores Anticline with between seven and eleven additional drill holes
planned for the coming weeks, weather permitting. This portion of the drill
program is scheduled to be completed by December 21, 2007, with assay results
expected to follow early in 2008.
