2006 News Releases

New Gold Zone in Hamlin, Shebandowan Camp, Thunder Bay, Ontario


May 4, 2006
  • Gold Mineralization extended 200 m in felsic volcanic
     
  • 9.02 g/t (0.28 oz./tonne) and 1.785 g/t gold in disseminated pyrite

Toronto, Ontario, Canada, May 4, 2006 – Mega Uranium Ltd. (“Mega”) (MGA-TSX-V) (through its Maple Minerals division) and East West Resource Corporation (TSX-V: EWR) are pleased to announce that a new gold setting on the Hamlin property has been found in the rhyolite volcanics 300 m north of the copper bearing breccias. Hole HAM06-42 returned 9.02 g/tonne gold over 1 m, with 1.785 g/tonne gold over 1 m in an adjacent sample giving 5.4 g/tonne over 2 m at 83.95 – 85.95 m in the hole.

The host is disseminated pyrite in the rhyolite and is not a vein style setting. Only anomalous silver values are associated with the gold. Another disseminated pyrite zone located 200 m to the west in hole HAM05-37 contained 0.5 g/tonne gold over 5.0 m with values ranging from 0.11 – 1.19 g/tonne gold. (See news release December 16, 2006.)

A number of other untested IP (induced polarization) geophysical anomalies occur on strike to the east that are now candidates for drilling, particularly one 800 m long anomaly that partly extends into the Deaty Creek property. A drill is expected to be available in 3 – 4 weeks to continue work.

The project set out above is being supervised by R. Middleton, P.Eng. who is the Qualified Person and the person responsible for quality control of the assaying and reporting. More details are available on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.

Gold assays were carried out by ALS Chemex using fire assay on a 30 g sample with an AA (Atomic absorbtion) finish. Samples were prepared by ALS Chemex in Thunder Bay.
Mega Uranium Ltd (TSX-V: MGA) and East West Resource Corporation each hold a 50% interest in the Hamlin Shebandowan property.
