    About CanAlaska Uranium Ltd. --

    CanAlaska Uranium (CVV -- TSX.V, CVVUF -- OTCBB, DH7 -- Frankfurt) is
undertaking uranium exploration in seventeen 100%-owned and two optioned
uranium projects in Canada's Athabasca Basin. Since September, 2004, the
Company has aggressively acquired one of the largest land positions in the
region, comprising over 2,500,000 acres (10,117 sq. km or 3,906 sq. miles). In
2005/2006, CanAlaska expended over Cdn$15 million exploring its properties in
the Athabasca Basin and has delineated multiple uranium targets. Initial
drilling from the West McArthur Project (now under an earn-in option to be
formalized with Mitsubishi Development Pty. Ltd.) revealed uranium
mineralization and significant zones of hydrothermal alteration, indicative of
a favorable environment for uranium deposition. Active drilling and
exploration will continue in Winter, 2007 at West McArthur and at 4 other
significant projects.
