TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - June 9, 2010) - Macusani Yellowcake Inc. (TSX VENTURE:YEL)(FRANKFURT:QG1) (the "Company") is pleased to announce further positive drilling results for the Colibri 2 and 3 uranium deposit located on the Macusani Plateau, Puno in southeastern Peru.

Peter Hooper, President stated that "These results represent the most significant intersection received to date on the Colibri 2 and 3 properties and supports our belief that the Company's Macusani Plateau properties contain sizable economic uranium deposits. Earlier this year we released results from our Kihitian concession that exhibited grades of up to 11% U3O8 [see Jan 13, 2010 press release]; the results we are announcing today provide further evidence there are areas of high-grade uranium concentration on the Macusani Plateau." The results above are from an infill hole that was completed after the NI 43-101 resource report for these properties was filed (April 13, 2010).
About the Colibri 2 and 3 Properties
Last month the Company released an updated 43-101 report for the Colibri 2 and 3 properties which outlined indicated resources of 2,095,658 lbs of U3O8 at a grade of 0.44 per short ton and inferred resources of 14,492,321 lbs of U3O8 at a grade of 0.34 per short ton (see April 14, 2010 press release). The Company has also completed a preliminary economic assessment for the Colibri 2 and 3 properties which indicates a pre-tax IRR of 20.7% at US$65 U3O8 long term price (see April 26, 2010 press release).
