    SASKATOON, Feb. 10 /CNW/ - Claude Resources Inc. (TSX-CRJ; AMEX-CGR)
today reported on its 2008 gold exploration results from the Starratt Olsen
target area of the Madsen property located at Red Lake, Ontario. The
highlights of assay results include:

    These results at Starratt Olsen Footwall continue to outline significant
zones of gold mineralization and augment prior drilling results in which
Claude Resources intercepted 185.62 g/t over 0.41 metres and 26.85 g/t over
0.58 metres (see Media Release dated April 8, 2008).
    "The shear system shows strong similarities to the high grade 8 Zone
system currently being explored by Claude's 22,000 metre, underground program
at the Madsen mine. These results highlight the exploration potential of
mafic-ultramafic trend and support our belief in the prospectivity of the
Madsen and Starratt Olsen footwall environments," stated Brian Skanderbeg,
Claude's Vice-President Exploration.
    The Starratt Olsen mine, located approximately three kilometres south of
the Madsen mine and mill complex, operated from 1948 through 1956 and produced
approximately 164,000 ounces of gold at 0.18 oz/ton. The mineralized
structures hosting the intercepts are between 100 and 250 metres in the
footwall of the Starratt Olsen historic infrastructure. These highlights are
part of a 13 hole program that was designed to follow-up on the initial April
2008 discovery.

results are available on the Claude Resources website at

    Brian Skanderbeg, P.Geo. and M.Sc., Claude's Vice-President Exploration,
is the Qualified Person who has reviewed and approved this news release. Drill
core was halved and samples averaging 1.0 to 1.5 metres were submitted to
Accurassay Laboratories in Thunder Bay, Ontario, an ISO approved facility.
Rigorous quality assurance and quality control procedures have been
implemented including the use of blanks, standards and duplicates (1 in 20
samples). Core samples were analyzed by a 30 gram gold fire assay with an
atomic absorption, conventional gravimetric and/or screen fire techniques.
Intercepts are reported as drilled widths and range from 65% to 90% of true
widths. Composite intervals were calculated using a 3.00 g/t cut-off and may
include internal dilution.
