VANCOUVER, Nov. 8, 2011 /CNW/ - ESO Uranium Corp. (TSX-V: ESO), (the "Company" or "ESO") completed its drilling programme in August, 2011, at the Donna Gold Property on Monashee Mountain, which is located approximately 65 Kilometers east of Vernon, BC.

ESO has received and reviewed assay and analytical results from the 1,633 meter, thirteen hole (13) drill program that tested areas of earlier drilling and trenching, and possible down-dip gold mineral extension to the west.

All of the holes had intersections of anomalous gold, with 7 having thicknesses of greater than 10 meters of anomalous gold often with anomalous arsenic and zinc values. With more than 53% of the holes expressing this level of grade x thickness this leaves open a target on the southwest side of the main gold anomaly showing in soils. This anomaly that extends more than 1,600 meters (5,300 feet) along the height of land between the Kettle River and Yeoward Creek. Both of these creeks were historical gold placer producers and minor production is still achieved there.  The gold soil anomaly is partially coincident with historical trenching and drilling. 

The area to the southwest of this year's drill programme is cut by a drainage that returned high gold values (>3ppm Au) in heavy mineral concentrate taken in a programme of sampling in the 1980s. This is within the area of the target which will be reviewed this winter.

The actual gold values in those drill holes with anomalous gold with thicknesses greater than 10 meters and samples over 1 g/t are indicated in the table below (Thicknesses are core length not necessarily true width).
