Strateco Resources Inc.: Significant Increase in Indicated Resources and Grade at Matoush
MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Sept. 17, 2009) - Strateco Resources Inc. ("Strateco")(TSX:RSC)(OTCBB:SRSIF)(FRANKFURT:RF9) is pleased to announce that the indicated mineral resources at its Matoush property has doubled in the past 12 months to reach 436,000 tonnes grading 0.78% U3O8 containing 7.46 million pounds U3O8.

Wholly-owned by Strateco, the Matoush property lies 300 km north of Chibougamau in Quebec's Otish Mountains.

Scott Wilson Roscoe Postle Associates Inc. (Scott Wilson RPA) has updated the NI 43-101-compliant resource estimate for the Matoush project based on drill results available as of September 1st, 2009 and using similar methods as applied in the previous estimate (Scott Wilson RPA, Sept. 2008). At a cut-off grade of 0.10% U3O8, the indicated mineral resources are now estimated at 436,000 tonnes grading 0.78% U3O8 containing 7.46 million pounds U3O8, and the inferred mineral resources are estimated at 1.16 million tonnes grading 0.50% U3O8 containing 12.78 million pounds U3O8. These resources lie in the AM-15, MT-34 and MT-22 zones, and extend over a strike-length of 1.4 km. The Matoush structure has been traced 11 km to the south and 2.5 km to the north.

The increase in the indicated resources from 3.73 million pounds grading 0.67% U3O8 (Scott Wilson RPA, Sept. 2008) to 7.46 million pounds at 0.78% U3O8 is significant. The indicated resources for the MT-34 zone, which lies in the upper part of the ACF-4 stratigraphic unit, is now estimated at 174,000 tonnes grading 0.89% U3O8 containing 3.42 million pounds U3O8. It should be noted that no indicated resources have yet been estimated for the MT-22 zone due to the current drill hole spacing, which is about 50 metres by 50 metres. This zone will be drilled at a tighter spacing during the underground exploration program.

Mineral reserves have not been estimated for the Matoush project.

Notes:

  1. CIM Definition Standards have been followed for classification of
     Mineral Resources.
  2. The cut-off grade of 0.1% U3O8 was estimated using a U3O8 price of
     US$75/lb and assumed operating costs.
  3. High U3O8 grades were cut to 9%.
  4. The Mineral Resource estimate uses drill hole data available as of
     September 1, 2009.
  5. Mineral Resources are not Mineral Reserves and do not have
     demonstrated economic viability.
  6. Totals may not sum correctly due to rounding.
 
The new estimate confirms that Matoush is a robust deposit, relatively insensitive to cut-off grades between 0.05% and 0.2% U3O8.

Management is also pleased to announce that it has increased its 2009 surface exploration program from 30,000 metres to 35,000 metres of drilling.

The 2009 drilling program is ongoing, with two drills working on the property. One of these is assigned to systematic drilling on a 200-metre grid to locate new mineralized zones in the southern extension of the MT-34 zone, in the upper part of the ACF-4 stratigraphic unit. The two most recent holes confirmed mineralization to the south. Hole MT-09-035, drilled 1.0 km south of the edge of the current mineral resources, intersected the mineralized zone over 2.9 metres grading 0.12% eU3O8, lying characteristically at the contact of the Matoush fault. Hole MT-09-036 was drilled 200 metres further south from MT-09-035, and intersected a 4.7 -metre section of mineralization grading 0.26% eU3O8 (see longitudinal sections at www.stratecoinc.com).

These results confirm the enormous potential for increasing the resource on the Matoush and Eclat properties over a 11.1 km distance along the Matoush fault, to the south of the mineralized envelope hosting the resources. As previously reported, two holes drilled 200 metres apart, last winter in the upper part of the ACF-4 (EC-09-05 and EC-09-06) more than 6 km south of Hole MT-09-036 returned very good results (0.12% eU3O8 over 2.6 metres and 0.11% eU3O8 over 2.1 metres).

The second drill is presently carrying out a 2,000-metre program on the Pacific Bay property, adjacent to Matoush, where Strateco holds an option to acquire a 60% interest (see Pacific Bay's news release dated September 8, 2009, at www.pacificbayminerals.com).

Guy Hebert, President and CEO of Strateco, stated: "The Otish Mountains area of Quebec is on its way to becoming a major uranium mining camp, and our Matoush project is the heart of this. When we acquired the property in 2006, no mineral resource had been identified, and we had set ourselves the goal of delineating 15 to 20 million pounds of U3O8 to justify commercial production of 2 million pounds U3O8 per year for 8 to 10 years. We reached that resource goal very quickly. Furthermore, the mineralization on the Matoush property has one of the highest average grades in the world outside of the Athabasca Basin, if not the highest, without the problems associated with that area.

Given the currently-available information and the drilling program presently underway, which will likely exceed 120,000 metres over the next two years focused on the Matoush structure, our objective is now to determine the possibility of reaching 60 million pounds of U3O8.

The environmental studies required to build the mill and tailing ponds are scheduled to begin in 2010. The mill production capacity will be decided based on the resources outlined in 2011. The objective is now to sustain a minimum potential production of 4 million pounds of U3O8 per year.

Due to the growth in mineral resources and grade and the reduction of various estimated operating costs, the scoping study done in the fall of 2008 will be updated in the coming months. We expect the estimated production costs of US$27.33 per pound of U3O8 to lower."

Strateco is eligible for exploration tax credits equal to about 50% of surface exploration expenses up until the Matoush property enters the commercial production phase.
