Mr. Richard Atkinson, President & CEO, announces that Fjordland has learned, based on this mornings news release issued by CanAlaska Uranium Ltd ("CanAlaska") that DeBeer's has terminated the autumn drill program earlier than expected. Wet weather hampered the program and several intended land based targets have been deferred to the winter drill program. Mr. Atkinson states that while today's news is disappointing he, along with CanAlaska's management is encouraged that the winter drill program is expected to proceed as planned.

The salient paragraphs of CanAlaska's release are quoted below:

"CanAlaska Uranium Ltd. "the Company" (TSX-V: CVV; OTCQB: CVVUF; Frankfurt: DH7N) ("CanAlaska" or the "Company") has been informed by De Beers Exploration that seven of 11 anomalies originally targeted as accessible for the summer program at the West Athabasca project were drilled, while the remaining four targets have been deferred due to high water levels. All remaining targets will be inaccessible until the winter freeze takes place.

The condensed summer program finished without intersecting kimberlite. De Beers is still receiving and analyzing physical property data from the last hole to better understand the overburden's physical properties, and geophysical response. All the drill core will be removed from site and transported to De Beers facility in Sudbury for further review and planning."

CanAlaska President Peter Dasler said: "The large number of anomalous geophysical responses, scattered across the 100 kilometre (60 mile) long zone, provides logistical challenges. This coupled with an abnormally wet fall season, has slowed the previous rapid advancement of this project. We look forward to winter freeze, so that site access becomes an easier exercise. We also look forward to the continual systematic testing of the various targets this winter."
