    Vice-President, Mining Operations, Philip Ng, P.Eng., stated that, "These
intercepts being reported today continue to extend as well as better define
the gold mineralization at Seabee Deep. The close proximity of the 2c Zone
will positively impact the head grade delivered to our central milling
facility at the Seabee Mining Camp for the remainder of 2009, as lateral
development into this higher grade ore shoot has commenced."
    In 2009, Claude Resources Inc. forecasts to produce from its satellite
deposit at Santoy 7 as well as the Seabee Mine. In addition, the Company plans
on continuing with an underground bulk sample program at Porky West and
pending environmental approval and permits, to move Santoy 8 towards
commercial production. For 2009, there are 35,000 meters of surface and
underground diamond drilling planned at Seabee and its satellite deposits.
    Longitudinal sections of the Seabee Mine are available on Claude's
website at

    Samples were assayed by Claude Resources Inc.'s non-accredited assay lab
at the Seabee mine site. Duplicate check assays were conducted at site as well
as at TSL Laboratories in Saskatoon. Results of the spot checks were
consistent with those reported. Sampling interval was established by minimum
or maximum sampling lengths and geological and/or structural criteria. Minimum
sampling length was 0.3 meters while the maximum was 1.0 meter. 200 gram
samples were pulverized until greater than 80% passes through 200 mesh screen.
30 gram pulp samples were then analyzed for gold by fire assay with
gravimetric finish (0.01 grams per tonne detection limit). A top cut of 50
grams per tonne was used to determine cut grades. Philip Ng, P.Eng, Vice
President - Mining Operations and Brian Skanderbeg, P.Geo., Vice President
Exploration, Qualified Person, have reviewed the contents of this news release
for accuracy.
