Forum Uranium Corp.: 4,500 Metre Drill Program at Henday; New Geochemical Targets Identified by Summer Program

Vancouver, British Columbia – Nov. 9, 2010 – Forum Uranium Corp. (TSX VENTURE:FDC) announces that preparations are underway for the 2011 drill program on the Henday Project, northern Saskatchewan. A total of 4,500 metres of drilling is planned, starting in early January.

Drill Plan

Drilling will commence on the Mallen Lake zone, where a large alteration system extending well into the overlying sandstones and down into the basement rocks was discovered in the 2010 drill season. The unconformity in the Mallen Lake area is shallow at 110m, easily reached by open pit methods. Several drillholes intersected uranium mineralization, with 0.5 metres at 723ppm U in RL-66 and 0.5 metres of 1610ppm U in RL-68, both within basement lithologies. Clean geochemistry (very minor arsenic and nickel) returned from this zone suggests that the uranium mineralization is basement hosted, similar to Hathor’s Roughrider zone or Cameco’s Millennium deposit.

North Arrow Reports McAvoy Pegmatite Represents a Potential Source for Technical Grade Spodumene

Vancouver, British Columbia – Nov. 8, 2010 – North Arrow Minerals Inc. (TSX VENTURE:NAR) is pleased to announce that a detailed mineralogical investigation of a composite sample from its wholly owned McAvoy lithium pegmatite has confirmed the high quality of spodumene mineralization at this locality. The McAvoy pegmatite is located within North Arrow’s Torp Lake project area in Nunavut, approximately 30 km southwest of tidewater on the Arctic coast and 245 km east-southeast of the Hamlet of Kugluktuk.

Previous channel sampling of the McAvoy pegmatite returned high grade assays of 6.0 m grading 4.5% Li2O and 7.0 m grading 3.3% Li2O from channel locations situated 78 m apart (North Arrow news release #09-22 dated September 17, 2009). A detailed review of these assay data indicated potential for the McAvoy pegmatite to represent a possible source of premium, low iron, technical grade spodumene. A composite from both channel sample locations was therefore submitted earlier this year to SGS Lakefield Research Limited for mineralogical evaluation.
