Savanna Energy Services Corp. Announces Q1 2011 Results

Calgary, Alberta – May 17, 2011 – Savanna Energy Services Corp. (TSX:SVY)

Overall, Q1 2011 was a period of progressing oilfield service industry fundamentals. Strong oil prices and increased activity in liquids rich and/or unconventional oil plays created more demand for drilling, completion and maintenance services throughout North America compared to Q1 2010. In addition, an extended cold winter also helped drive overall Q1 2011 utilization rates up to levels not seen in several years. These factors led to an increase in operating days, hours and rates in the Company’s drilling and oilfield services divisions and increased revenues and operating margins in each of the operating divisions significantly compared to Q1 2010. Operating cash flows in Q1 2011 increased by 50% compared to Q1 2010 to $45 million and net earnings increased to $15.6 million or $0.20 per share from $10.6 million or $0.13 in Q1 2010.

Uranium North Identifies Additional Targets on the Robin Project

Vancouver, BC, May 17, 2011 – Uranium North Resource Corp. (TSX-V: UNR) has staked an additional claim at the 100% owned Robin property in Nunavut. The claim covers a north – south trending till geochemical anomaly with samples assaying up to 2.42 g/T gold.
