Toronto, Canada, November 2, 2006 – Mega Uranium Ltd. (MGA-TSX) (“Mega”) announces that it has acquired 6.25% of Northern Uranium Limited (“Northern Uranium”) on its recent oversubscribed Australian initial public offering, joining Areva NC, through its wholly-owned Australian subsidiary, Cogema Australia Pty Ltd., who also took a 6.25% stake in Northern Uranium.
Northern Uranium’s flagship 9,950km2 Gardiner-Tanami Super Project has potential similar to Australia’s Alligator Rivers Province and Canada’s Athabasca Basin, which hosts the world’s highest grade uranium mines.
