Peak Resources Limited (PEK) is pleased to announce highly encouraging assay results from initial exploration work carried out at its Lake Darlot Uranium Prospect. The Lake Darlot Prospect comprises broad calcareous sedimentary deposits up to 10 metres thick at the margins of Lake Darlot. The calcareous sediments have been identified as being enriched in uranium by precipitation from drainage inflows from nearby catchments that host “hot” granites (high uranium levels). Regional radiometrics data has identified a broad zone of anomalous uranium in sediments that is approximately 7 km long x 2.4 km wide. PEK completed a sample traverse over part of the anomaly in March to verify the radiometrics and delineate background U3O8 within the Prospect. During the sampling programme, the uranium rich mineral carnotite was identified in a shallow calcrete pit (< 1 metre deep) located on the edge of Lake Darlot. Sample results from grab sampling within the shallow pit has returned highly encouraging results of 147 and 384 ppm U3O8 with soil sampling returning a peak result of 186 ppm U3O8. PEK now plans to commence drill testing of the radiometric anomaly at Lake Darlot during the June quarter subject to the availability of appropriate drilling equipment and field crew. Uranium Projects Background Lake Darlot is one of four prospects comprising PEK’s Goldfields Uranium Projects (“GUP”) The project group includes Lake Darlot, Cogla Downs, Gabyon and Cosmo Prospects. GUP run in an east-west band L A K E D AR L O T across the mid west of S H A L L OW C A L C R E T E P I T Western Australia. The prospects were selected in mid 2005 based upon work completed by the CSIRO in the mid 1970’s in identifying uranium occurrences within calcrete sediments. Field work by PEK commenced in March with a field reconnaissance programme over Lake Darlot and the Cogla Downs prospect.
