2008 Press Releases

Laramide intersects 66 metres @ 0.29 % U3O8 at Westmoreland

Laramide Resources Ltd. (TSX: LAM) is pleased to report results of five diamond drill holes from its 100% owned Westmoreland project located in North West Queensland, Australia. These results include Drill Hole WDD07-3 which intersected 66 metres @ 0.29 % U3O8 from a depth of 10 metres. All 5 drill holes were drilled with either NQ or HQ core into The Garee Lens, which forms part of the Redtree Deposit at the Westmoreland project (see cross section and maps to be posted to www.laramide.com).

Laramide results to date at Westmoreland consist of 7 holes, the first two of which were released in January 2008. Assays were completed by ALS Chemex ("ALS"), Townsville. Results of laboratory analysis of core samples from WDD07-3 to WDD08-7 have been received, and are tabulated below:

Peter Mullens, VP Exploration stated "The results confirm continuity of mineralization identified in historical drilling and also indicates the potential for high grade lenses within the broader mineralized envelope. In addition, the results reaffirm our strong belief in the technical strength of the project."

The current drill program forms part of an ongoing 12,000 metre drill program expected to be completed in the summer of 2008. While this program is being executed, Laramide will also be conducting initial metallurgical test work and mine engineering studies. Currently core is being saved from drill holes to be sent for metallurgical test work. The current drilling is being conducted with a Longyear LM 70 drill rig operating on single shifts. A second rig is planned for introduction, with double shift drilling intended to commence shortly. This will increase daily production from around 40 metres to in excess of 150 metres.

As of March 30 2008, Laramide had completed a total of 25 diamond drill holes for a total of 2,292 metres. Most of the drilling has been completed with NQ sized core. Several holes were completed with HQ size core so that in addition to assaying, half of the core will also be used for metallurgical test work.
