NEWS RELEASE
TSX.V KXL

Vancouver, British Columbia, May 11, 2009. Kodiak Exploration Ltd. is pleased to report that drilling at its 213 square kilometre West Millennium uranium project in the Athabasca Basin of northern Saskatchewan has defined a very large and significant zone of highly altered and uranium mineralized (up to 0.13 % U3O8) basin fill sediment and underlying basement rock that extends for over 14 kilometres along strike and remains open. Kodiak completed five drill holes testing structural and stratigraphic EM conductors extending from an historic Cameco drill hole on the property.

Kodiak will use these drill results to vector into zones believed to host higher grade uranium mineralization within this highly altered and strongly mineralized structural corridor.
