      JNR Announces Drilling Program Underway at Way Lake Uranium
      Project
=======================================================================

Saskatoon, SK, February 20, 2009 - JNR Resources Inc. (TSXV:JNN) (the
'Company') is pleased to announce that a winter Diamond drilling
program is underway on the Company's 100% owned Way Lake uranium
project, located 55 kilometres east of the Key Lake uranium mine in the
Athabasca Basin of northern Saskatchewan. The Way Lake project
comprises 17 contiguous claims totalling 71,795 hectares.

The planned drilling program comprises some 3,500 metres (20 to 25
holes) and will focus on widespread outcrops of uranium mineralization
referred to as the Fraser Lakes uranium showings (Fraser Lakes A and B
zones). These mineralized zones are proximal to a 5-kilometre-long,
folded EM conductor comprised of Wollaston Group graphitic pelitic
gneisses and uraniferous granitic pegmatites. They were identified by
ground prospecting of airborne geophysical targets during the summer of
2008.

The B zone showings occur along the northern extent of this folded
conductor and are currently the more prospective of the two mineralized
zones. Nearly 70 individual mineralized outcrop sites were identified
over a 500-metre-wide by 1.5-kilometre-long area. Over 70% of the grab
samples taken from these sites assayed from 0.03 to 0.457% U3O8.

The B zone was tested by three drill holes (WYL-08-524 to 526) at the
end of the 2008 program. Although they could not test the optimum
target, namely the graphitic pelite/pegmatite contact that occurs
beneath muskeg, all three intersected uranium and thorium
mineralization, accompanied by rare-earth element enrichment and
anomalous levels of pathfinder elements. The best results were from
hole 525 which intersected numerous uraniferous intervals. Of
particular note was a 12.0-metre intersection from 77.50 to 89.50
metres down hole that returned 0.081% U3O8; including a 3.0-metre
intercept of 0.193% U3O8 (true widths cannot be reliably estimated at
this time).

The A zone showings occur in a second fold nose at the southern end of
the conductor. Seven holes (WYL-08-508 to 514) were drilled in this
area, three of which intersected broad zones of significantly altered
and structurally disrupted graphitic pelitic gneisses accompanied by
anomalous levels of pathfinder elements, particularly copper, nickel,
vanadium, bismuth and zinc. Outcrop samples in the area contained up to
0.042% U3O8.

Dr. Irvine Annesley, Director of Exploration for JNR reiterates: "The
Fraser Lakes district has numerous similarities to nearby
basement-hosted uranium deposits, such as Eagle Point and Millennium,
and the presence of previously unrecognized uranium mineralization over
such a large area speaks to the high potential for a significant
discovery".

Major zones of structural disruption accompanied by alteration and weak
to moderate levels of radioactivity were identified in all of the other
areas targeted by the 2008 drilling program, including the previously
discovered EWA, West Way, Nob Hill and Hook Lake showings, and the
Walker Lake conductive trend. The final analytical results from these
holes are expected in the next few days and will be reported on once
they have been received and interpreted.

JNR's Vice-President of Exploration, David L. Billard, PGeo, is the
qualified person responsible for the technical data presented in this
release. Samples were analysed at the Saskatchewan Research Council
Laboratory in Saskatoon. All technical information for the Company's
exploration projects is obtained and reported under a formal quality
assurance and quality control program, details of which are presented
on the Company's website at: www.jnrresources.com/i/pdf/JNR-QAQC.pdf. A
