About CanAlaska Uranium Ltd. -- www.canalaska.com
CanAlaska Uranium (CVV -- TSX.V, CVVUF -- OTCBB, DH7 -- Frankfurt) is undertaking uranium exploration in seventeen 100%-owned and two optioned uranium projects in Canada's Athabasca Basin. Since September, 2004, the Company has aggressively acquired one of the largest land positions in the region, comprising over 2,500,000 acres (10,117 sq. km or 3,906 sq. miles).

Initial drilling from the West McArthur Project (now under an earn-in option to be formalized with Mitsubishi Development Pty.

Active drilling and exploration will continue in Winter, 2007 at West McArthur and at 4 other significant projects.
