2006 News Releases
Mega Invests in Khan Resources Inc.
Toronto, Ontario, August 2, 2006 – Mega Uranium Ltd. (“Mega”) (MGA:TSX-V) announced today that it has acquired 1,667,000 units in Khan Resources Inc. (“Khan”) (KRI:TSX) for $2,500,500 pursuant to a private placement with Khan. The private placement was completed concurrent with Khan’s initial public offering on the Toronto Stock Exchange, whereby Khan issued 3,067,000 units for total proceeds to Khan of $4,600,500 (excluding Mega’s private placement). Each unit consists of one common share and one-half of one Class E share purchase warrant exercisable at a price of $1.90 per share at any time before August 2, 2008. The Common Shares and Class E Warrants issued under the concurrent private placement are subject to a four-month hold period.
Khan is engaged in the acquisition, exploration, and development of uranium properties in Mongolia, where Mega, together with Red Hill Energy Inc. (RH:TSX-V), is presently active in uranium exploration (see Mega’s release dated June 19, 2006).
Khan is currently focused on its primary assets – the formerly-mined uranium properties in the Dornod district of Northeast Mongolia. The Company holds a 58% interest in the main partially developed Dornod property which is licensed for mining, and a 100% interest in the additional Dornod property, licensed for exploration. Khan is in a unique position to move forward and develop and mine the Dornod uranium deposit in a relatively short period of time. Concurrently there is the opportunity to significantly expand the 40.1 million lb U3O8 indicated resource by further drilling both on surface and underground.

Mr. Inwentash, Chairman and CEO of Mega commented, “This investment in Khan follows Mega’s strategy of acquiring quality international uranium assets, through direct and indirect investments. Khan’s uranium property is the type of quality resource we look for, and is in a country we are already familiar with. We look forward to Khan successfully advancing the Dornod deposit”.
